  • Let the rain come and wash away the ancient grudges,
    the bitter hatreds held and nurtured over generations.
  • Let the rain wash away the memory of the hurt, the neglect.
  • Then let the sun come out and fill the sky with rainbows.
  • Let the warmth of the sun heal us wherever we are broken.
  • Let it burn away the fog so that we can see each other clearly.
  • So that we can see beyond labels, beyond accents, gender or skin color.
  • Let the warmth and brightness of the sun melt our selfishness.
  • So that we can share the joys and feel the sorrows of our neighbors.
  • And let the light of the sun be so strong that we will see all people as our neighbors.
  • Let the earth, nourished by rain, bring forth flowers to surround us with beauty.
  • And let the mountains teach our hearts to reach upward to heaven.
  • Amen.
  • — Rabbi Harold S. Kushner (2003)
