All in All, it's Just Another Prayer in the Wall

My kids gave me permission to share the four prayers that they left at the Western Wall in Jerusalem (in accordance with Jewish tradition, they stuck them in the Wall). They are:

  • “Homes for everyone”
  • “All peas”
  • “No illegal fishing”
  • “Make grandma better.”

So to translate, they prayed to end homelessness, achieve world peace, preserve marine life and help a sick family member. I doubt that many adults’ Wall prayers have been more thoughtful. (Although to be fair, a modest degree of parental intervention was exercised to discourage “Make the Georgetown Hoyas the 2009 NCAA Champions!” from being added to the list.)
