Prayer for Travelers
by Angela Herrera
This is a prayer for all the travelers.
For the ones who start out in beauty,
who fall from grace,
who step gingerly,
looking for the way back.
And for those who are born into the margins,
who travel from one liminal space to another,
crossing boundaries in search of center.
This is a prayer for traveling mercies,
for clear vision,
for your body and spirit,
for your safe arrival
and for everyone you see along the way.

Mr. Kramer is on campus through January 25 and would be happy to help you out.
