    Hi Selma,
    I just wanted to say that that prayer was very beautiful, I took it and posted it to my desktop so that I can see it, I again thank you all, I know at times I seem like I whining child, on top of everything else, I don't have a mom that I can turn to, my mom died in 1987. And so I thank God for you all who are my encouragement..
    In Christ Love

    Dear Love,
    You can still turn to your Mom for help. She is with you.
    Listen for her advice and help.
    Put your Left hand on your right shoulder or as close as possible and put your right hand on your left shoulder or as close as possible.
    Now rock back and forth and feel the huggs that are being given to you.
    Crying is OK. Asking for help is more then OK.
    My prayers will always be sent up for You to find Peace and Joy. Love, Selma

    If GOD created Adam and Eve.
    We are all sisters and brothers.
    If you believe that we have our freedom because He helped our troops. Then u must accept that the troops are made up of Asian Americans African Americans Eastern Americans and European Americans Etc.. We are all His chosen people.
    Jesus asked his Father for forgiveness for ALL.
    You have His love whether you go to a protestant church a catholic church a jewish temple face the east or west when you pray or use another name. There are many languages on this earth. English wasn't the first language.
    God will love you if u do or don't believe. You have a right to believe what is true for you.
    Maybe I will go to hell, but I will Love All here on earth
    with God's help.
    Peace, Love and Light, Selma
    Got this as e-mail so passing it on
    This is very true and moving.
    What is an American?

    You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American. So an Australian dentist wrote the following to let everyone know what an American is, so they would know when they found one.

    An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani, or Afghan. An American may also be a Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, or one of the many other tribes known as Native Americans.

    An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses. An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

    An American is from the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each man and woman to the pursuit of happiness.

    An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need. When Afghanistan was overrun by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country. As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

    Americans welcome the best, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best athletes. But they also welcome the least. The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America. Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, earning a better life for their families. I've been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 other countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

    So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and every bloodthirsty tyrant in the history of the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

    Pass this around the World.
