We proudly reproduce the words of a former great leader, a paragon of virtuous morality and inspiration to us all,
William Jefferson Clinton
on an historic ceremony held on October 12, 2000 in Washington, DC. With Elie Wiesel at his side, this giant of American political history delivered the following memorable, uplifting statement:
* * * * * *
On a solemn pilgrimage to the Holocaust Holy of Holies in Jerusalem on October 31, 2000, German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder accidentally extinguished the eternal flame for the Six Million.
At a ceremony at the Yad Vashem memorial, Schröder turned a handle that was supposed to make the flame rise. Unfortunately, it went out instead.
Then Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who accompanied Schröder, stepped forward to try to help, but was unsuccessful. Finally a technician used a lighter with some gas to bring the flame back to life again.
Let us hope and pray that this light unto the world is never again extinguished.
