Jackie Fa’asisila

We look back at pain and sorrow

Love and loss

Grateful for lives we’ve touched

Rejoice in who they have become

What they contribute

How they will make their worlds 

A better place for their own children


We live in hope that the principles of peace

And social justice

Will someday resound

With as much power and force

As the national disasters that threaten

To devour and destroy

Lands and cultures

Torn by war, religious division 

Bigotry and hate
