NOTE: May the Lord so unite us in love toward one another that when one of us is harassed or persecuted, we all respond as one. (It's much easier to beat up someone alone, but taking on 50,000 or a million of us is much harder.)
May that love and unity also be joined with wisdom to respond well, not in the same way.
