Remember

 

"...WE WERE YOUNG.

WE HAVE DIED.

REMEMBER US.

 

...OUR DEATHS ARE NOT OURS;

THEY ARE YOURS;

THEY WILL MEAN WHAT YOU MAKE THEM...

 

...WHETHER OUR LIVES AND OUR DEATHS

WERE FOR PEACE AND A NEW HOPE

OR FOR NOTHING WE CANNOT SAY;

 

IT IS YOU WHO MUST SAY THIS.

...WE LEAVE YOU OUR DEATHS.

GIVE THEM THEIR MEANING.

WE WERE YOUNG... WE HAVE DIED.

REMEMBER US."
