"A Prayer for America" - An American Asks for the World's Spiritual
Support on Nov. 2
Firstly, please visit the link above and listen to "A Prayer for
America" by U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich who speaks from the
patriotic and global citizen eloquence of his heart and soul:
Then please return here to read my words, inspired by Dennis and by
the urgency of the American election on Nov. 2, an urgency that asks
for your spiritual support so that America can change its course
from the preceeding disastrous 4 years of fear, lies, greed,
unilateralism, war, environmental destruction, and arrogance.
Hello international friend,
You do not know me, but I am an American, a native son who was
raised with the undying belief in the freedom, liberty, democracy,
and compassion that have been the birthright and hallmark of the
great American experiment /country that my parents adopted as
I do not know you but I believe you are a good-hearted citizen of
some foreign land who may have been raised in times past with an
admiration for the United States of America. Most likely you are in
disbelief and despair as you have witnessed the greatness that was
the U.S.A. degenerate into a bullying disregard for the
international community. You may even hate America for the past 4
years of its pre-emptive war tactics, its lying government, for its
fear-mongering within its own borders and throughout the world.
There are literally many, many tens of millions of U.S. citizens,
today, right now, who do not approve of this government and are
working mightily in every town and city to save our country and its
democracy. Just know that we are united with each other in
enthusiasm, registering new voters by the millions, making phone
calls, sending emails, organizing on the city, county, and state
levels - everywhere - to insure that on Nov. 2 our votes will
produce a regime change in this country.
You cannot vote in our election. But, if you are a person of faith,
you can lend your spiritual support on Nov. 2 to ensure America
undergoes a fair election where every vote is counted, where America
changes its course and finds again its Heart and Soul to become the
beacon of hope and vision that it once was to many people near and
In New York Harbor stands Lady Liberty, the Statue of Liberty, a
magnificent gift from our French friends. Her upraised torch still
invites the Heavens to pour down their energies of freedom. The

Will you imagine a torch within your heart that is the Light, Love,
and Power of the Creator? On Nov. 2, will you use the hands of your
imagination to reach deep within this torch of your heart to gather
a precious flame? Will you fly in your imagination to New York
Harbor and drop that flame into the Lady's torch of liberty and
freedom? You may see untold numbers of your global neighbors there
doing the same. Then will you imagine the torch, bursting with the
renewal flames of a billion hearts, blazing forth in blinding glory
to spread its Light over New York, over the United States to awaken
its citizens as they choose the new direction of their country?
Indeed, the entire world can then be seen to become suffused with
that same torch Light, so that every dark corner is lit and every
dark thought and action is redeemed. Renewed optimism and hope with
visions of peace and prosperity for all humankind can blaze forth in
all human hearts. Every one of you is needed. Each of you can make
a difference in the outcome of our election through these uses of
the creative imagination and through prayer, meditation, and holy
ritual on Nov. 2.
Just as America once served as a beacon of hope and liberty for
millions of immigrants in their hour of need, I ask you now to come
to America's aid in her hour of need.
I do not know you, but I do love you and thank you.
California, United States of America
