Grant us, young and old, the ability to hold our tempers.
Help us to pause long enough to think before we make costly or fatal mistakes.
Above all, guide parents to instill morals and ethical values in their children
while they are young.
Grant parents the wisdom to become better role models for their children.
It is time for us to invest in the task of building communities;
The only way to accomplish that is to invest in our children.
Smile down on us.
Grant us the power to change the trend; young lives are being taken, and families are being torn apart.
Give us the strength and wisdom to create better days.
I send my plea out to the UNIVERSE.
