My Prayer by OllieP age 11

The children were challenged in school to write a prayer for Holocaust Memorial Day in Jan 2015. BigBear OllieP produced this which filled my heart with pride and reduced both me and his headteacher to tears… (Copied verbatim)

Dear God

I ask that all the poor refugees soon get to return to their homes.

I ask that racism and sexism and homophobic offences are concluded forever.

I ask that nobody judges each other by their skin colour, their gender, and their choice of love or their religion.

Let us remember the horrible ways Hitler treated Jews and gassed them for their beliefs.

Please ensure that holocaustic disaster never happens again.

I ask that everyone has equal wages and equal amounts of foods.
