All I know is this....
I pray for the Lebanese Red Cross man who lost his entire family when the orphanage he was caretaking for collapsed during shelling. Both for comfort in his time of loss, and that the cause of it will not turn him to hatred and perpetuate the very thing Israel is trying to end.
I pray that every Israeli in every cafe' in that country may never have to fear someone wearing a Semtex vest with Primacord trim ever again.
I pray at the same time that Israeli settlers will peacefully vacate the outer zones according to the current peace outline as a contiuing step of good faith towards peace, though it is hard, and fraught with (justifiable) cynicism towards the future.
I pray for every innocent person caught in the crossfire when both a nation defends itself (most often justly, but sometimes overzealously IMO), and a terrorist organization launches unjust attacks against that nation and its people.
All I know is, I'm tired of seeing fighting, and by that I mean globally. Religion vs. religion. Race vs. race. Power vs. the powerless. Us vs. them or Them vs. us. It will take a big person, or set of people, to declare that discussion, diplomacy, and democratic process are the tools to use, rather than the easy way that involves guns, bombs, and violence that make for so much more media coverage. And for all that, I pray that these declarations will come.
