Remembrance Sunday 2014
A universal prayer for Remembrance Sunday or any time:
Our globe is nothing but a little star in the great universe.
It is our duty to turn this globe into a planet
whose creatures are not tormented by wars,
nor tortured by hunger and fear,
nor torn apart in senseless divisions
according to race, colour or creed.
Give us the courage and foresight,
to begin this work even today,
so that our children and grandchildren
may one day take pride
in being called human.
Stephen Vincent Benet, from 'Prayers Encircling the World', SPCK 1998
This is the prayer of the United Nations.
