We pledge to be the light in the darkness,

 We pledge to be the light in the darkness,

And never repeat past mistakes again,

We pledge to be kind to those suffering in isolation-

To support others during their time of need.

Suffering often leaves its victims heartbroken and missing loved ones,

Days are long. Hours are slow.

We offer our words of comfort and kindness to get you through these dark days,

If you are suffering, remember, the sun will break through the clouds

And the rain will soon stop.

We need to stick together.

We must show strength like Hedi Frankl-

Show courage through these tough times.

Decades ago, people were snatched from their families,

All because of their religion, race, or ability.

For 5 days and 5 nights they suffered,

Human beings.

Treated like cattle.

We pledge to be the light in the darkness.

We pledge to support those who are still suffering in the world.

You are not alone.

We are not alone.

We all stand together as one.

Even though there is darkness right now,

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Brave people are saving lives and risking their own each day.

Their courage roars like a pride of lions.

The days are long and never-ending

But remember the lightness and the shortness of the day will return once more.

Do not hate for the sake of hating,

Instead, share the good times.

Hedi is not alone anymore and neither are we.

This year, this time, we will all shine.

Being a hero isn’t always about having superpowers and wearing a cape,

It is helping others through the hard times that counts.

We will change the world and make it a better place.

We pledge to be the light in the darkness.

We pledge to be the light in the darkness.

Hedi’s story is an inspiration to all.
