June has come to an end, and with it all the joys of summer. Soon to come, YJC will be holding An Afternoon with the War Poets, as a tribute to those who perished in World War 1. This year marks the 100th anniversary of World War 1, the massive conflict that shook the world to its knees. However the world war is not the only thing we would like to pay tribute to. We would also like to highlight the recent tragedies across the world and nation that have happened, and are still happening right now. 

It seems to be a difficult time for the world, especially our own country. Fresh from the recent MH370 tragedy that darkened Malaysian skies, the public is now reeling at yet another airline disaster. Much has still yet to be confirmed, and we urge everyone to be responsible in disseminating information as well as to be considerate. 

In these trying times, we decided our theme will be perseverance. Like the people who have stood through the great war, and come out still standing, we too must go through this together. 

Right now, we are at a loss. Our hearts burdened. Our souls weary. It comes to a point in time where you don't want to wake up, and see another tragic headline, read another devastating statistic. But we will persevere. This difficult time serves as testament to just how strong the human spirit can be, how strong we, as a country must be, to pull together and get through this tragedy. 

As a nation, we will weep. 
For the victims, their families, the children. Our grief for the losses everyone has suffered goes beyond words.

As a nation, we will pray. 
We pray for Gaza. We pray for humanity. We pray for our lost brothers and sisters of MH370. We pray for MH17. We pray for many things but above all, we pray for a brighter tomorrow. 

As a nation, we will come out stronger in the end.  

Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. 
Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. 
Dr. Martin Luther King
