Because we are human, we suffer angst, anger, and hopelessness when lives are taken from us through violence. As Dominicans, we seek peace and truth through prayer, reflection, and action. May this reflection bring you closer to peace and truth.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Let us continue to pray for the families and friends of the innocents murdered in New York and Sutherland Springs, Texas.
