  3. What a chilling and timely reminder. I shall remember with you all today although we, the lucky Swiss, have not the same references as you do. But in my book ANY and EVERY death on a battlefield is one too many.
    Try to enjoy some relax-time! We mean well when we challenge you to tone it down a bit….

    • Yes. Your thought reminds me of a story I read earlier today:

      “We have an obligation to remember, especially tragic, complicated pasts,” Viet Thanh Nguyen says. “And yet at the same time, we need to move on. We need to forget in order to move on. How do you balance these two things?”

      ~ Ocean Vuong, from “Eavesdropping on Ocean Vuong’s New Book” (New York Times, May 25, 2019)


  8. See the numbers is powerful, David. Thinking about each one individually is overwhelming. Remembering is definitely the key. Thank you, David. Cher xo
