The following poem was written by Hilda Lebedun and shared as part of the Memory Project.

How many killing fields
Our planet holds!
How inhuman are we humans!
We dishonor
God’s covenant.Where and how
Do we atone for
Our shameful deeds?
To honor the Almighty,
We must be strong in righteous deeds
And humble ourselves
In all our deeds.

We must try to stop
This senseless destruction,
For this is the only way
To save ourselves
In this big, hurting world
For the sake of generations to come!

Our honor to
The Almighty must be
Very strong in deeds and action
To humble ourselves
In our need
For His protection.
