Was there ever any real distance between our years? No, my beloved. Not when time is an account of the heart. For time seems distant only to those with distant hearts.

Why does it seem 
so far to me these days 
when I just realized - just Now - 
the Holocaust is barely but 
two generations since, 
my Miyang...? 

one thousandth 
of a thousandth of a second 
by its measure in heaven, 
we may have on earth 
already forgot... 

...and when we do forget 
we become less than ourselves - 
we become less and less human, 
we become less than our nations 
and thus, less and less able 
to know each other 
in the Truth.

For me and my Anne, 
June 13 is Friendship Day.
