This is an awesome photo by one of my 43things friends and local colleagues here in St. Louis. Funny how today, at Mass at St. Cronan's, my husband protested praying for a group of people who were enduring a minefield in order to release prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. What's wrong with praying for someone's safety, regardless if you agree with the premise? Even if you are for the death penalty, is there something wrong with praying for someone else's soul lest how depraved it is? This creation said a lot to me. I guess that's why I am a teacher. Even though I am privileged and have grown up so, I really have seen the pain these enemies can do. I do so wish we could all be equal so there was no more suffering in the world. I hope that everyone could have the privileges I have had. This has been a Thanksgiving come lately for me.
