A letter to my American neighbours, sisters and brothers

Dear friends,
What has been happening in your country is beyond imagining: the hatred
the fear; the bomb scares this past week; this morning’s deadly shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh; the lack of concerned / caring / pastoral response by your leader in the White House.

You may feel alone. You may feel helpless. You may feel frightened as you have never felt before. You may not have the strength or courage to face “the next.”  Please be assured that there are people around the world who are holding you all in the Light; are praying for you; are “with you” in spirit; are hoping and praying and encouraging you to vote in your mid-term elections in numbers your country has never seen before.

May you vote with hope.  May you vote love, not hate.  May you vote.

June Maffin, a friend and one of your northern neighbours who aches with you and prays for you all.
