A Special Prayer for the Crisis in Ukraine
Famous Naomi Shihab Nye
The river is famous to the fish. The loud voice is famous to silence, which knew it would inherit the earth before anybody said so. The cat sleeping on the fence is famous to the birds watching him from the birdhouse. The tear is famous, briefly, to the cheek. The idea you carry close to your bosom is famous to your bosom. The boot is famous to the earth, more famous than the dress shoe, which is famous only to floors. The bent photograph is famous to the one who carries it and not at all famous to the one who is pictured. I want to be famous to shuffling men who smile while crossing streets, sticky children in grocery lines, famous as the one who smiled back. I want to be famous in the way a pulley is famous, or a buttonhole, not because it did anything spectacular, but because it never forgot what it could do.
To Pray for
Peace among all nations - and an end to the ongoing war between the Ukraine and Russia which continues
For all the family and friends of Olivia Pratt-Korbel
Those affected by all drug, gang and gun related crimes
Those anxious about the cost of living crisis
