A perfect 'Rosebud' blessing

May God bless us with discomfort  
at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, 
so that we may live deep within our hearts.
May God bless us with anger  
at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, 
so that we may work for justice, freedom, and peace.
May God bless us with tears to shed 
for those who suffer from pain, rejection, hunger, and war, 
so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them 
and turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless us with the foolishness to believe 
that we can make a difference in this world, 
so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.
