Daring for Peace

Maureen Killoran

As we are confronted by chaos,
  May we have the wisdom to believe in peace.
Surrounded by voices of disagreement,
  May we have the audacity to speak for peace.
Lured by the seduction of despair,
  May we have the courage to maintain
  a vision of possibility and peace.

A side view of a person, eyes closed, with their hands pressed together and brought to their face, as if in prayer.
