Coming at the end of a brief but highly inspiring message, this summary statement reflected upon the previous comments she had made.
She spoke of peace a highly relevant topic on "D Day" to a German national who personally fought the Gestapo. She spoke of indifference as our greatest roadblock to the attainment of peace. She spoke of love and concern for human welfare. She spoke from the heart.
