We have seen war, and we have come out the other side of it. Our foe was mighty but broken, and we mourn their loss as we mourn the loss of our own. Their lives were no less important as our own. The battlefield is where fortitude and courage are tested. Your bravery is commended, and I would like to extend a hand in friendship and loyalty to all.
Our enemy came with hopes of retribution against a people who wished them no harm, and that was their downfall. I have no doubts that if they had come to us for aid instead of blood, we would have taken them in the same way the Sky People have taken us Pod People in: with open arms and an eagerness to help.
Today, we mourn the loss of life as much as we celebrate that we still have ours. I ask that you take those suffering injuries into your hearts, and we wish them an easy recovery. I ask that we take a moment to reflect on our good fortune and remember those who gave their lives to protect this community. They will not be forgotten.
