Pleas sign the petition on Kosovo
« on: March 31, 2004, 10:31:20 AM »
The following is a private email sent to me by a cyberfriend.  I ask that you all access the site and sign the petition to the United Nations to stop the violence in Kosovo.



Dear Friends:
On Sunday, Linda and I attended Liturgy at St.
Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Wildwood, NJ.  We
asked Fr. Steven Vlahos to pray for the people and
churches of Kosovo.  Not only did Fr. Steven pray, he
led the congregation in singing, "Save Thy people and
bless Thine inheritance."  We were grateful through
our tears.

Our good friend and member of St. Nick's, Dusko
Nikolic, has updated the church homepage.  By going to
the homepage, you can now access iPetitions to sign on
to appeal for an end to the violence in Kosovo.

If you haven't signed it yet, please join us.

Your signature will be added to more than 1000 others
in asking the United Nations to defend the people of
Kosovo from harm by the extremists or to admit that
the job is too big for the UN and to demand an
investigation and prosecution of those who perpetrated
the violence in Kosovo and condemnation of the
violence.  Your signature will also support a call to
investigate why the UN was unaware that these attacks
were being planned and coordinated.  The extremists
were simply looking for anything that could be used as
provocation to start their rampage against people and
their homes and churches.

More than 30 churches have been desecrated and burned.
Historic treasures have been ruined.  Innocent
people, including priests and nuns, have been

It is so important for a strong, unified voice to
demand justice and restore civility.

Please go to the St. Nick's homepage, scroll to the
bottom of the page, click on the photo on the left and
sign on.  The website is:

Pass this message and the website on to your family
and friends so that they may join us too.
Thank you,

Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.

I signed it.
