    Sir: Unable to appropriately finish the first within the space given; I will not be denied a conclusion. 156: Largely from Amsterdam; their lives extinguished because they are Jewish?!?! I may not comment with authority concerning the actions of your elected and appointed officials, but Holocaust Day MUST continue. The site of the atrocities must need be maintained as much so the world never forgets, but perhaps more importantly as sacred ground, soaked with the blood of shattered dreams, broken families torn asunder. And Israel must take those steps as needed to survive in a sea of troubles; if not for current, then for future generations, I become quite emotional over this, and apologize for my lack of cohesive thought. I just can't escape pondering the terror a 10 year old child must have felt just prior to her death: Common barnyard animals received better. This must not ever happen again! Thank-you
