I made this monument, this electronic monument, to be able to achieve closure, to grasp the pain, and grapple with it. I hand coded the table structures, lovingly typing the name of each victim in their own <td>, made sure the cells where properly padded, all while quietly muttering their names, and imagining the beauty or their innocence and the horror of their death. I didn’t know any of them personally, but i am familiar with their struggle, the horrors they had to face up to and the difficulties they must have gone through just to be accepted as equal human beings. I gently muttered their names, for these are my comrades, my fellow humans, my company in this long, winding and painful journey we call life. So fare well my friends, we shall not forget you.
