As the streets are swept clean of all traces of yesterday's events, as the countless yellow flowers offered as a last goodbye turn to dry, as we return to our everyday routines... Do we look back at August 5, 2009 and simply say, "there was a president who was so loved by her people", or "that was the day that she once again united the entire nation"...

Or do we eternally commemorate the cause and sacrifice that this one person stood and fought for and really think, "this legacy that she has left us, as a people, what can we do to further it for the common good? What can we sincerely do to help in our own little ways? What can we do right now?"
