I am forever thankful for my mum
and even more so that she raised me to to honor all people
regardless of what their religious beliefs are.
We are Irish Catholic and that is something my mum was very proud of.
However, she understood (and passed on that understanding)
that all people should be safe in their religious beliefs.
No one should have to worry that their families, their children, might be kidnapped, tortured,
or murdered because of what they believe or where they live.
We are one people and what we do to the smallest person, we do to ourselves.
Lord almighty, I pray for peace for all of our brothers and sisters.
