Yet another month has gone by. In spite of all the gazes bound to the past, in spite of all the mourning amassed during these years of holocaust, of all the sacrifices, be they desired or accepted, life is rising up from the ruins, perhaps the stronger for being more rarefied, perhaps intensified because of all those ardent and rich existences that were destroyed before they had expressed themselves, and which dominate our era with all the purity, with all the flame of their heroic youth.
We come out of those terrible years with new glory, but above all, with new duties. Each of us must envisage them as a whole, then consider our own.
Individually, the task could be easy, if it is only a question of a little selflessness, courage, and abandon of the heart.
Collectively, the thing is more complicated, as the problem needs to be tackled from the root before being addressed in close union, if, that is, we are to transcend the domain of utopia.
Nevertheless, it seems that the time has come to consider the situation seriously, frankly.
