what we do

To survive, we push certain truths to the backs of our minds.
To survive, we try not to think about the danger we live in.

As we survive, we think about those who do not.
As we survive, we mourn those we could not protect.

As they perish, we wonder when it will stop.
As they perish, we try to remember a time when things were not this way.

And we remember that there has never been a time when things were not this way.
And we imagine a time when things are not this way.

And we work to find the path there.
And we work to find the path there.
And we work to find the path there.

We forget nothing.
We forget nothing.
We forget nothing.
