What happens? What happens is that we honor the memory of those who are no longer with us by using what we have learned to save others; to exercise faith and patience and charity; to reach out to those who are afraid. If we can do that, then their passing will have had meaning and we will grow from it.
I served the Council for 16 cycles. I was the chosen of Dukhat to replace him. I held him when he died. His blood is on my hands, his spirit in my eyes, his word on my lips.
