Now, we must face together this unknown.
The moments have led us here,
  the roads we’ve traveled —
We, each from a different background,
  house, and world;
Led to a cord we would not see unraveled —

But this is our task, our battle, only us:
To enter the fray with purpose – once, twice, thrice –
And never to stop the fight until we win,
And given a reason to the sacrifice

That those who suffered from this wrong have made.
For tall in our memory such trees have grown
As place us today within a holy shade.
Now, we must face together this unknown.
