In closing, I simply note that, the closer we come to the truth of the darkest chapters of our collective history — our past — the greater our chances of increasing understanding of one another, healing the wounds of the past, and, in the process, lighting the way to a brighter future for us all.
We have come a long way. But we still have far to go.
Have a nice day.
