A Prayer for my Divided Nation
Things are looking dark right now, and many friends feel that. I have seen swirling anger at levels that I cannot remember before and friends deeply divided in many directions. Rage and violence are in many places. I fear I may lose friends as well. In meditation this morning, and after, I wrote this:
Hail Heimdall! Help those who must keep the watch and remind them to do it well as well as to remember ALL of their duties.
Hail Hermod! Let those who must bear the memories and stories of the dead be inspired to carry that duty well.
Hail Tyr! Remind us that Rage, even Righteous Rage, can be the Fire that engulfs us all. “For Fenris must be chained, or Chaos will be King!”
Hail Freya! Remind us that the Passions we all bear do us credit, but can sometimes go too far. I call on you as Cup Bearer to remind us to meet in Hall and not in battle.
Hail the Gods! Hail the Ancestors! Hail the Philosophers and Voices of Reason that I hope we can hear!
