Dona Nobis Pacem

Exactly 12 years ago, I was working at the Washington DC convention center (the old one) when it happened…

…today I was reminded, because as I walked into work this morning, our flag was at half mast, and I was assaulted with a handful of images (including that amazing Budweiser ad from that year’s Super Bowl), and I found myself choking up… again…

I hope I never forget the emotions of that day.

I decided to let it move me to pray for the people of Syria, and all that they’ve experienced, and all that they will. Their tears and losses are much greater than ours were, and the situation seems so far beyond hope.

God, grant us peace… please… Grant these world leaders your heart… even if only for a moment, long enough to make peace work. Even Assad.

Dona Nobis Pacem.
