I agree completely with your heartfelt words and feelings for those of your family lost to the hatred of the Holocaust. My prayers for you and your family and all of those survivors and their families are always on my heart.

Our actions need to include standing up to the belligerent dictators preventing them from instigating another war.
Many thanks, Philip. We are thinking of you.
