To ALL our Iraqi brothers and sisters;

We love you, and we are saddened by the immeasureable hardships you have undergone. Those of us at the gathering believe that the vast majority of us in the United States would never have made choices leading to the suffering so many are going through right now. We ordinary people continue to petition our government to do its part in ending the violence through peaceful means.

To those acting in violence, please invite loving-kindness, and the wisdom of compassion into your hearts. The fear and anger that moves you to violence can never bring anything but more fear and anger. We pray that you can find the power of compassion in your heart to heal and support you, that you may lay down your weapons.

To all of you, our brothers and sisters, our friends, our human family in Iraq: We want your lives to be wonderful. We wish you peace. We pray that you will soon find joy in each sunrise, and comfort in each sunset again. May your dreams of happy and full lives come true quickly, and may you soon find yourselves with beautiful memories once again.

We wish that you find friends where once there were enemies, and that all those you love are well, and close, and happy. We wish you joyful new beginnings, that give your life the chance to shine brilliantly into the world. May you experience the patient and kind power of compassion, generosity, and forgiveness. May all the loving-kindness of the universe bring healing, and joy to you now, and always.

From all of us at the Peace Gathering on March 20th 2007, 8pm

We love you. We pray for your happiness!
