The International Dinner


Today we bring food from our countries
As we sit and eat with people from all nations
It is easier to see our sameness than our differences
We are all interwoven

Today we savor our fellowship
And flavors of our cultures
Undivided by flags or borders
We see the reflection of ourselves
The mirror of our hearts

Today we are a glowing fire
Ignited by a single torch
The universe gave birth to the stars and our earth
Our earth gave birth to us
Today we are children of the same mother

Today we will remember
This feast of abundance
And gathering of thanksgiving
To love ourselves is to love each other

Today we have become friends
