Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an channel of your peace,
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is darkness, light;
... and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are
born to eternal life.
July 27, 2012
For the loved ones of A.J. Boik, may you find peace in the love and memories of Alex.

You are still whole in the hearts who knew and loved you. Your killer can never kill that. I believe we are all interconnected and my heart knows that dying is actually recreation. Your energy, your consciousness returns to all that is and becomes at home with the stars that made you. Human beings hurt because we see goodness in others and that inspires all of us to do the same. Truth is, you left our world too soon for some but our soul always knows what the plan in even if our mind does not. Godspeed young man and may your soul group of peeps find their way to you again in another time, realm. Much light and love to all those that loved this young kid.

I am so sorry for your loss. I met your son AJ at Horseshoe Park with my kids at a couple yrs ago. We were out there playing on the baseball field. AJ decided to catch my son's pitching and refused to put the gear on, and 1 pitch later he was off to the ER (hit by pitch). His bravery and courage will stay in our hearts forever and he will be forever missed.
