A Prayer in Brief


that what I’m wearing on my head won’t predispose me to a search, or predispose you to suspect;

 

that negligence will shrivel up and mature caution will sprout up;

 

that our visionaries will seek to build and to create, not to wreck and raze;

 

that the line that so jaggedly isolates idealism from realism will blur;

 

that buildings will be for skylines, and planes will be for skies, and people will be for loving, and flags will be for pride;

 

these things I pray.
