A Prayer for Sacred Dignity

A Prayer for Sacred Dignity
Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Dear God, 

I just spoke to a group of your precious children, learning with them from my aching heart about a world that caused at least 5 young people to lose hope, despite the Majesty of being created in Your Image.  I wish those 5 teenagers had had a safe place, an affirming community, a place for generating personal hope.  I will never stop trying to build and demand that notion of "home." 

Being Gay is sacred.  
Being Straight is sacred.  
Being Human is sacred.  

May no more people be hurt for being themselves.
