Eleanor Roosevelt kept this poem in her pocket during WWII:
Dear Lord: Lest I continue my complacent way, help me to remember somehow out there a man [or woman] died for me today. As long as there be war I then must ask and answer: am I worth dying for?
This plaque with the poem stands at the Pearl Harbour National Memorial marking the day the then US President marked as historical infamy and a day the Ukrainian President recently invoked. War has raised it’s maddening cruel life-snatching head again.
Hear us oh Jehovah Shalom, You are our peace.
