Prayer to Liberty

Goddess Liberty,
we pray to you today.
Grant freedom to all your children,
no matter their country.
We take time today to remember
the examples of freedom we have seen in our time.
We remember the citizens of Berlin,
who knew that the best use for a wall is to dance upon it.
We remember the hole in the Romanian flag,
put there by those who overthrew their oppressors.
We remember the people who stood in Russian Parliament Square
and waited for the tanks to come.
And we remember those who struggled and failed,
such as the martyrs of Tiananmen Square,
who, after raising a statue to you,
faced the tanks and lost.
We will not forget.
We will not forget.
Give us the courage to earn our freedom
and to regain it if it is stolen.
We ask this of you
who are the source of all freedom.
