Yahrzeit Candle

Two Brilliant Flames, Extinguished

For a long time, I've been an atheist. That doesn't stop me from being a humanist. I look for inspiration in the acts of others that strike a sympathetic cord, that demonstrate that, on occasion, the best in the human spirit, prevails. That stories can have happy endings.

Tam Tran and Cinthiya Felix deserve to be remembered, for who they were, what they achieved against great odds, and what great deeds they would have done to extend the values they represented to the future.
