For those who died on the beach of Normandy, and those whose boots walked on the trails in Vietnam and saw friends die, while they somehow survived. For the brave soldiers who fought in the Middle East and died knowing no safe place, we salute you. For the soldiers who fought in the heat of battle and came back home with scars on their bodies and scars on their souls, we weep for you. We hope you will get the help you need and find consolation.
For those who have lost siblings, parents, spouses and children to illness, old age, disease, accidents, lack of treatment, and in other ways, our hearts go out to you. It is our fervent wish that they find peace,
and you find comfort in knowing you are not alone.
