The following poem was written by Hilda Lebedun and shared as part of the Memory Project.

Dear God,
how do we honor
our loved ones and the millions
who so tragically perished?

Will it please you
that we meet
like this to pray
together
to remember them
in our hearts
and souls,
that their memory
will always be cherished?

Till the end of time,
till the rivers
and oceans run dry,
so long as there is somebody left
to lift their eyes to the sky!

We humbly ask
for your guidance
and help–
to ease our pain
and sorrow—
so we can live and cry and mourn
in hope for yet another tomorrow!

Hilda Lebedun
