Humanity losing!

I followed the Boston drama in the television like I had not, since I think I was in college.It was sad seeing the two young kids in their multiple phases being changed into instruments of hate.I saw the jubilant college kids shouting USA!USA!after the second kid was caught.I saw the picture of the little kid standing by the marathon way-side before the blast took his life away.I also saw the little girl who lost her two limbs in the blast.
In the desperation of it all,I saw humanity losing.
There was no victory there ,there was only loss.
In situations like this ,I hold on to prayers of Francis of Assisi which takes on a new meaning,'

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me bring your
love.
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord
And where there's doubt, true faith in
you.

 Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there's despair in life, let me bring
hope
Where there is darkness, only light
And where there's sadness, ever joy.


Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
In giving to all men that we receive
And in dying that we're born to eternal
life.


May it be so Lord!
