An Ailing Nation
Let us look to the hearts of our leaders
and would be leaders,
to the purity of intention of these hearts
in their desire to do good.
Let us listen for words of honesty,
of simplicity, of compassion, of love,
and let us ask our hearts
if these words are true.
We, as a nation, shall rise or fall
on the basis of the words we use
and the place in the heart that they come from.
May the words of our leaders
be words of virtue rather than words of deception.
May the heart of love
that lives within each one
give forth the words that will restore hope
to an ailing nation,
and promise to a people
of the future that can be.
