Food for Thought-A Blessing for Northern Ireland on Saint Patrick’s Day


A Blessing for Ireland on Saint Patrick’s Day

May you never know the smell of Semtex,

May you never know the sound of helicopters overhead,

May you never know the feeling of being searched in the street,

May you never hear the crack of the Armalite,

May you know the peace of today,

May you know the laughter of the moment and the smiles of tomorrow,

And may you know the possibilities of an unimaginable future.
