A Meditation for those living and dead
who have suffered from violence

May all women who have been murdered be at peace,
May you be safe and protected from harm,
May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.

May all women and children who have been murdered be at peace,
May you be safe and protected from harm,
May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.

May all women, children and men who have been murdered be at peace,
May you be safe and protected from harm,
May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.

May all those who are suffering from violence today
Know that there are people who care and who are striving
To create a better world.

May the world be at peace,
May we be safe and protected from harm,
May we be free from suffering and the causes of suffering,
May we have happiness and the causes of happiness,
May our hearts open to the beauty and wisdom of our spirits,
May love light our way and may love lighten our load
Through these difficult times.

May we be at peace.
