and so we are here in this very dark time and the only thing I could think of to do was to send as many prayers as I could to the people of Newtown, CT. And not only them but to the people of Columbine and to those of Aurora, CO and to those many communities and families that have been victims of this bleak violence. We can only respond with prayer. No matter what spiritual language you use, prayer is always there.
So, I started a Facebook Page called Prayer Flags for Newtown, here. And you can join it if you'd like. But the point, really, is to send prayers to Newtown. I truly believe they will go there.
Please join me. Hang your prayer flags outside. They can be homemade with a simple square of muslin or an old sheet with a simple prayer written on it with a marker. It could be as simple as a peace sign or a heart. Your children may benefit from making them. This will be a scary time for them.
Your flag(s) can sewn and embellished however you see fit. Take a look here.
They can be purchased, here. I just bought a whole bunch to give to friends and neighbors. It is not about art. It is about prayer.
