Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty God
Where ever flames may rage
Give me the strength to save a life
What ever be its age

Help me embrace a little child
Before its too late
Or save an older person
From the horror of that fate

Enable me to be alert
To hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out

I want to fill my calling
And to give the best in me
To guard my neighbor
And protect his property.

And if according to your will
I have to lose my life
Bless with your protecting hand
My loving family from strife.

Policeman's Prayer

Oh almighty God
Whose great power and eternal
Wisdom embraces the universe,
Watch over all policeman and
Law Enforcement Officers

Protect them from harm
In the performance of their duty
To stop crime, robberies
Riots and violence

We pray, help them keep our streets
And homes safe day and night.
We recommend them to your loving care
because their duty is dangerous.

Grant them your unending strength and
Courage in their daily assignments.
Dear God protect these brave
Men and Women.

Grant them your almighty protection,
unite safely with their
Families after duty has ended.

Peace is the healing and the
elevating influence of the world.

Woodrow Wilson
1856 - 1924

Peace is more the product of our
day-to-day living than of a
spectacular program, intermittently
executed.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
1890 - 1969

Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly
process, gradually changing
opinions, slowly eroding old
barriers, quietly building new
structures.

Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it
must be taken one step at a time.

Lydon B. Johnson

cathedral, peace must be contructed
patiently and with unshakable faith.

Pope John Paul II

Peace is not only a distant goal that we
seek, but a means by which we arrive
at that goal.

Peace is... a virtue, a state of mind, a
disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.

Baruch Spinoza
Dutch Philosopher

Peace is not the absence of conflict but the
presence of creative alternatives for
responding to conflict; alternatives to
passive or aggressive responses, alternatives
to violence.

Dorothy Thompson

Peace is an enviornment where conflicts are
resolved without violence, where people are
free, not exploited, living so they can grow to
their full potential.

Christian Brothers University

God Bless America

God Bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home.

From the mountains to the prairies
To the Oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home.
God bless America, my home sweet home.

Note: Called "America's unofficial national anthem," this stirring song was written by Irving Berlin (1888-1989), a Russian immigrant who came to America when he was five years old.

The Flag

The things that the flag stands for were
created by the experiences of a great people.
Everything that it stands for was written by
their lives. The flag is the embodiment, not of
sentiment, but of history.

1856 - 1924

When I die, I desire no better winding

We look forward to a world
founded upon four essential human
freedoms. The first is freedom of
speech and expression. The second
is freedom of every person to
worship God in his own way. The
third is freedom from want. The
fourth is freedom from fear.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
32nd President of the U.S.
1882 - 1945

I still believe there can be a day
when we will have true freedom: a
day when we can all get along
regardless of our race. This is not a
dream. It is alive within the ability
of us all.
