Try to remember what we did, and what we failed to do.
Remember Cambodia, East Timor, Guatemala and Guinea
Remember Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Zanzibar
Remember Sabra and Shatila, the Kurds and Nazi Germany
Remember the 4561 that died serving
Remember the 601,027 that died in their homes
Remember the 247 that died when they tried to show us
Remember the streets
Remember the 1,408,337 who were violently killed
Remember the 90,427 who were raped
Remember the 16,929 who were murdered.
Remember them. They had names, faces, voices and thoughts. They had wives, husbands, children and pets. They had secrets and ambitions, ideas and hopes. They had lives.
