Jillian Curtis. She has asked for stars representing the yellow stars that the Jews had to wear under the Nazi oppression of World War II. They also symbolize the lights that went out due to the Holocaust.
We must never forget these precious lives that were lost. Hopefully these stars will serve as a reminder of the evil that hatred can cause, and that we should never let it flourish in our hearts.
Thank you Jillian for inviting me to participate. This is something I will remember for the rest of my life.
