Remind us that no one
is forgotten in your sight
that all are welcome at your table
that each and every one of their lives
is a story of sacred worth and meaning
that can never be lost.
May the memories of their lives
shine forth like the brilliance
of the skies above
as we rededicate ourselves
to their memories now.
Turn our grief and anger into resolve
fill us with strength and will and purpose
that we may once and for all
end this endless night.
Never let us forget
our sacred responsibility
to ensure that all are housed
and clothed and fed;
let us never stop fighting
for the basic essential dignity
of every living, breathing soul.
Ba’al ha’rakhamim tastireihem
b’seter kanfekha le’olamim.
Source of all compassion,
inspire us to extend your shelter
across this land and throughout the world
that all may know the blessings
of safety and security now and forever.
V’nomar, and let us say,
