Blessing for Safety Pins

a silver safety pin rests in front of a blurred pile of its mates

Spirit of Love and Life, may these common things be candles in the darkness, showing a refuge for those in need of safety and support. May they be symbols of love and resistance, lights in the gloom sparking to one to another, announcing across race, class, age, culture and all other divides that we are committed to each other’s safety and well-being. May the commitment they announce rekindle the lamps of hope throughout this aching nation and world.
