Hoping for peace

As I am writing this, events are still unfolding in Paris, following the carnage at the Charlie Hebdo offices.  I pray that the hostages are going to be released, and that no more lives will be lost.

Being in this sleepy village in Languedoc I am far removed from all the madness, but touched by it all the same.  At midday yesterday, the municipality observed a minute of silence, to remember the victims.

My heart goes out to the families who have lost their loved ones in this atrocity, and to those who are fearful for the safety of their nearest and dearest, who are being held hostage.

  1. Thank you for this meditation and prayer. The anger behind this act is unfathomable. All we can do is to sew peace in our own lives and hope that the seedlings grow and become fertile.

    Love, Natalie
