I am a Baha’i. Not as active as I could be but a Baha’ i nonetheless.

As such, we believe in God, and prayers. I wrote my brother at some point saying that I do fnd it peculiar that we take solace in praying to God for healing and protection when He is the one who put us in this predicament in the first place.

I have received a lot of eMails from friends and relatives in support. All are wonderful and extremely welcome. Those who are aware of my religious convictions, and have one of their own remember me in their prayers. Others remember me in their thoughts.

I find the wordage interesting. Talking about religion has become so taboo, which makes me sad. We are more prepared to talk about Freud and Jung than we are to talk about religion.

And yet it is religion, warts and all, that has had a greater influence on our lives and laws.

Your prayers and thoughts are working overtime. Keep them coming.
