Each a unique, beloved, irreplaceable child of God. May they rest in peace and may their families and loved ones find comfort in their sorrow.

May all those who perish in war from every side rest in the heart of Godde. May we learn to do a better job of getting along with each other and meeting our challenges than warfare.

For the countless, and uncounted, Iraqi dead amid the struggles for power and struggles to survive where fear, mistrust, and animosity divide the human family.

For those involved in "the forgotten war" in Afghanistan.

For those in war, civil strife, and terror anywhere on this planet.

For the preservation of the planet Mars from our madness.
