"THE BIRDS WILL STILL SING" BY ANISE KOLTZ


Abattez mes branches
sciez-moi en morceaux
les oiseaux continuent ŕ chanter
dans mes racines


 


Break my branches
saw me into bits
the birds will still sing
in my roots


 

Remembering and Praying for those murdered and injured on Promenade des Anglais, Nice

We pray in heartfelt solidarity with the people of Nice.
We pray for those who died, those who are injured, the traumatised and all their families.
We pray that though we are deeply disconcerted by such acts of merciless violence – no matter how near or how distant from us – we may not give in to discouragement, but fix our hearts on always doing what is right and just.
We pray for civic authorities everywhere, especially those involved in peace-keeping.
May we work together with all women and men of good will to protect the dignity of every human being.
