What will become of memories
Of happy times before the shadows
Of evil days choking our people
Of the most horrible suffering imaginable
Of keeping faith in the worst of times
Of loss of everything-but ultimately
Of survival?
What will become of them?
We know.
We who are the legacy
Of those who lived those memories
And told of the bravery of surviving
We will remember.

The author's comments:
As the granddaughter of a survivor of one of the worst calamities imaginable, I want him, and all of the other survivors, to know that the memories are now passed on to the next generations and not lost forever.
