Let us Lament Gun Violence and Rise Up for Change in Gun Laws, Mental Health Policies and Survivors' Support, Bridget Mary Meehan ARCWP

A Prayer In Response to Gun Violence
"Let us lament with all those who are touched by gun violence
Let us lament the shooter’s choice for violence
Let us lament laws that allow violent men easy access to guns
Let us lament our politicians’ unwillingness to work for change
Let us lament with the hearts broken by loss today
Let us lament all the lives cut short today
Let us lament, O God, and then let us rise from our knees to work for change
In the name of Christ, the prince of peace. Amen."
The Rev. Dr. Ellen Clark-King, Executive Pastor and Canon for Social Justice
Icon of Our Lady of Ferguson and all victims of gun violence by Mark Dukes. Prayer via Kelly Latimore.
