Pray even if you have no prayer

President Karzai was understandably emotional as he thought about his own children and the future of Afghanistan . .


President Hamid Karzai bursts into tears during a nationally televised speech on the problems facing Afghanistan, as a peace council is appointed to start formal negotiations with the Taliban.

a friend of mine Colin responded ot this with a prayer/poem which I thought would be good to post:

Colin Darling

Pray even if you have no prayer...

Oh great God friend of the crushed and broken,
let not Afghanistan be a caravan of slaughter
on its way to a caravanserai of despair.
May you gentle king grant to people who live in security
the gift of tears and imagination,
and to those who live by violence
the gift of hope
