The sanctity of human life

The concept of human life being invaluable is enshrined in the very foundation of human civilisation. Each individual is an entire world comprised of countless thoughts, urges and emotions. Every person adds immensely to the experience of other humans: some are role models, shining examples and beacons of hope to others.

Untimely death of a human being is the single worst thing that can possibly happen to us. A life cut short creates a gaping void in our collective lives, a permanent source of sorrow and despair. Magnitude of such a loss is vastly intensified when another human, one of our own kind if responsible for the loss of life.

We join in mourning families of the nine victims of the tragedy in Donetsk.
