I know there is nothing I can say to help you get through this, but I'm going to try anyways. They were two beautiful young women, and those sick pervs that did that to them, deserve to die. You are forever in my prayers, may God be with you. P.S. Just remember they are your guardian angels now and you will be together in heaven, eventually. They will always be watching over you and looking down on you, and making sure you are safe. You will see them again, and they are in a happier safer place, forever. Yours truly Becky Brackett

I SEND MY DEEPEST THOUGHTS AND SORROW TO THE FAMILIES OF THESE GIRLS. THEY WERE TREATED WITH SUCH DISRESPECT AND GIVEN THE CHANCE THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY RESPECTED YOUNG LADIES OR ADULTS. HOPE THE FAMILIES OF THESE GIRLS ARE RECOVERING. NO ONE COULD FILL THE EMPTINESS THAT THESE MEN HAVE GIVEN YOU BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE WATCHING OVER YOU. THEY ARE VICTIMS OF A CRIME BUT NOTHING WOULD MAKE THEM HAPPIER THAN YOUR HAPPINESS.

I am a recent graduate of Grambling State University. I receive my Master of Science Degree in Criminal Justice. My main focus is in juvenile corrections when I become a instructor at a selected university. I am going to use this case for discussion with my students so maybe we can figure out a way to handle juvenile delinquency, because it is getting out of hand.

I am a student studying the death penalty for an essay I have on Tuesday. My heart goes out to both families of these victims. I am a mother myself, and can't imagine going through such a tragedy involving my daughter. I cried so hard when I read the part about Mr. Ertman asking if the victim had blonde hair. It just makes me sick to believe these guys put these innocent girls through such hell. I will pray for these families, God is the only judge in the end.

Having had a brother stabbed by two gang members in Houston I can feel the Ertman's and Pena's families pain. My brother lived but my mother never got over the fear that he would be hurt again. I feel very deeply for these young ladies untimely and horrible death. No one should ever go this way. I have always supported the death penalty and still do not understand why it was changed in this manner. But as you stated in this article they will get what they deserve in the end one way or another. May these young ladies rest in peace and may their parents know some peace in this life. Sincerely, Stella

To the families and friends of Jenny and Elizabeth. I am so very sorry for your loss of these beautiful young ladies to this horrific crime. My own daughter was murdered over 4 years ago, and I know that I will miss her not one bit less in the years to come. How can we count the things these murderers have taken from us? We cannot, because there are things every day when we long for their being here to share them with us. These monsters KNEW what they were doing and they DESERVED the penalties they were given at trial, and it is a travesty against the name of justice for every sentence that is not carried out as the original juries and judges who heard ALL the evidence intended. My heart goes out to all of you who loved Jenny and Elizabeth. It has every day since I first heard of these evil atrocities that were committed against them. But especially today, because I know how very, very hard this day can be. May God bring what comfort He can to all of you every day and especially at this time. Whatever will help you is what I am praying for. And I know that our Angels are looking on us with love - the love we share is the only thing the murderers could NOT take from us. Wishing you moments of peace, Janet My

My heart goes out to you and your family for your loss. I know that you are now tired of people telling you that they are sorry. I always tell people who lost a loved one that they are not gone, that they are right by their side. A long time ago, my grandmother told me that when you are all by yourself and you get that funny feeling that some is watching you it is your loved one. Or the one she told me that when you get a sudden chill for no reason, that is your loved one also telling you that there are right there by you side at every step. Just think about that. Always remember the good memories. And for what those men had done, they should go to death row and get the lethal injection or the chair. Once again, sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your whole family.

Sad to hear these killers will not be executed. This is such a tragedy. I remember hearing about this in the news when I was Jennifer's age. Now being a mature woman and having a daughter of my own, I can really understand how much a parent loves their child and how painful it is just to see your child break their arm by falling off a bike. But the pain you as parents went thru knowing and hearing how your daughters were taken from you...from their future is just unexplainable. This girls were so innocent and did not deserve to suffer this way. It just brings tears to my eyes to think how even youths can be so cruel and evil. I just send my prayers out to the families of Jennifer and Elizabeth. God Bless you always. As for the murderers...they need to spend eternity in jail. It's a disappointment knowing they will not get the death penalty for their crimes.

My God. Such beautiful babies. I cannot even imagine the pain and I pray to God my baby girl is protected from animalistic men such as these. My heart and my prayers are with the family. I cannot even imagine their pain. I pray to God these "men" never get out. Jesus. So many lives ruined forever. My heart is indeed broken to read this real life story. Many times men look at us women all the same. Pieces of meat, not a woman to be respected and defended. We need to teach our children that sex is sacred, given by God. Let us, as parents, fight against this culture of death, as our Holy Father Pope John Paul the Second used to say. May God be with the souls of these two beauties and with their families. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. All you saints and angel, pray for us.

When I first heard of this horrible tragedy, I was so appalled I could not believe that any human being could commit such a cruel and vicious act on these young girls. I have followed the progress of the case for years. This was and still is in my opinion the most horrific crime this city has ever experienced. I plan to go Huntsville when each one of these animals are executed to see justice prevail for these girls. That is the only way any of us who follow this case will get any resolution. May God Bless the parents of these children and all of the family members who suffered this tragedy. May God be with you and give you peace! God Bless Elizabeth and Jennifer. Michael W

I will definitely keep you and your family in my prayers. I have a special needs son and I know what he means to my life and my heart truly hurts for you and yours. I know you have had to take one day at a time and try to heal which just takes lots of time. I don't know if a person ever truly heals from something happening like this to their loved ones but I know God gives us strength when we don't think we can go on. He gives us peace when we cannot stop thinking about our loved ones. He also gives us grace and mercy ...which is new and fresh each day. May God's face shine down on you and yours holding you in his ever-loving arms holding you close as he gives you new precious memories of your daughters. Thank you for sharing this story and I know it is touching thousands of people everyday and changing lives. Because of the love you have for your daughters their memories live on. God Bless!

****************************************
Signer_FullName: Kari Signer_Email: Remote Name: 207.250.22.5 Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2005 Time: 09:22 AM Comments: I was ordered by a judge to research these two young girls and tell who they were and why Brown Deer, Wisconsin has curfew laws, after getting a curfew ticket. I don't know anything really about them yet, but I have a feeling I am going to be touched by their story and taught a lesson. Sorry for your loss. ****************************************

It is now a while later and I have learned far more from and about Jenny and Elizabeth, and I was indeed touched by what they went through. I'd like to share my paper about them with you. Here it is... Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena were two teenage girls just like me. They lived in Houston, Texas. They did things just like me and my friends do, they used to hang out with friends, go shopping, and talk on the phone. It was June 24, 1993, Jenny and Elizabeth spent their day together, not knowing that later that night they were going to die together. Later that night, they did something similar to what I have done before but I was much more fortunate than they were. The two girls were at a friendís apartment hanging out. They needed to be home by 11:30 pm to beat the city's curfew law, so they left their friendís home at 11:15. The girls decided to take a shortcut without thinking twice about what could happen to them, just thinking that they needed to get home before curfew. The girls took that shortcut, now their familyís and friends' lives are forever changed for the worse. That night Elizabeth and Jennifer were beaten, gang raped, and murdered. In the past as I have been taking shortcuts to get home as fast as possible, there was always that thought in the back of my mind that I knew I could get kidnapped or something like that but I guess I just kind of always thought, well more like hoped it wouldnít happen to me. Iím sure that's exactly what these girls thought too, and they are dead. For me thatís a very scary thing. I read more detailed versions of the story of their deaths and their murders - I didnít even know them or anything, I donít and never will understand how someone could do that. I did a ďsearchĒ of their names and I went to several websites. One was in memory of the two beautiful girls, there was a spot where you could post your thoughts and condolences or just write a comment or whatever is on your mind about their loss. I wrote a post and told them how I learned about the girls and just wrote a little summary explaining my situation and why I had to write this paper on their daughters. Every city, in every state has to have a curfew law. Reason being, to prevent extremely horrible things that can happen, like what happened to Jenny and Elizabeth. I understand now and did understand before doing this paper, why we have to have curfews laws; but now after learning about these two wonderful girls, it kind of just all makes much more sense. Now, I really understand that itís for our own safety. Like I said before I always knew in the back of my mind that something really bad could happen to me, but we as teenagers just kind of put up that block of ďit wonít / couldnít happen to meĒ and just proceed doing what we are doing. These girls didnít know what God had planned for them that night, no one knew, but I hope that the families really understand that their daughters' deaths are probably helping many people snap into reality that anything can happen to you at any given place and time. I know that they helped me and I was deeply touched by their story. Brown Deer, Wisconsin has to have curfew laws. If they didnít, well to be honest Iím not sure what Brown Deer would be like without curfew laws. It would probably be much louder and there would more than likely be an increase in drug and alcohol use in teens. There has to be curfew laws for everyoneís safety and well being. When I first got assigned this paper I was really happy because everyone else that I was with the night we got pulled over for speeding got a $75 fine and I didnít because we got different court dates and maybe different judges, due to my not being able to attend the first given court date. In the end though, Iím glad I got to write this paper, not just because I donít have to pay $75 but also because if I didnít I probably never would have read about these two remarkable young women whose lives were unfairly taken from them. Even though they are no longer living, they are living in others here on earth and touching people with their terrible day of tragedy, and even I have told many of my friends their story. I think mostly because I know we all just put the possibility of these things happening to us in the back of our minds. I thank you for making it a court order that I write this paper and giving me the chance to learn about Jennifer and Elizabeth. I honestly donít think I will ever forget them. Thank you.

That's my paper. Thank you for letting their story be know! Jenny and Elizabeth have truly changed me!! God Bless! Much Love and Peace be with you!!!

A co-worker this morning told me that a 14-yr-old girl had roller-bladed to her house last night after 11 pm to visit her son. The girl, who lives about 5 miles away, had sneaked out of the house, so no one knew she wasn't there. When my co-worker found the couple together around 2 am, neither could understand why she was so upset. I told her to go on-line and find articles about Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena and show them to both of them. Twelve years later and Yes!, your girls are remembered! Although I wish with all my heart that it wasn't to be a reminder of the horrible things that can happen.

Sandra, You wrote about being in love with one of these animals and that 2 wrongs don't make it right. Then I shall pray that if the same awful thing befalls your little girl that the animals that did it will get a nice cushy jail cell, three meals a day, TV, Books, Magazine, visitors, a chance to pray at chapel and all the other things that we as a society have to give to these child rapists. I want you to know that if they did this to Jenny and Elizabeth, are you so stupid that you think they would not do it to you, your daughter, sister, mother and any other female that they get near? you should not be allowed to maintain custody of your daughter if you are willing to put her in harms way. Give up your child and give her a chance at life. Have your tubes tied and don't breed again.

To the family of Jenny and Elizabeth, I am a senior currently attending Tyee High School. I am doing a required paper on the Death Penalty, and somehow came across the story of your daughters. I'm sorry that you had to suffer the pain of losing your child. I thought that the Death Penalty was a cruel way to punish people but after reading about your daughters I feel no sympathy for those on Death Row. May God shine his light upon your life.

Having lost a child of my own (although not in such a horrible manner) I have so much sympathy and compassion for the families of these two murdered girls. I also have much indignation at our criminal justice system...a system that has allowed those animals to remain alive, safe, well fed, clothed, and healthy for all these years. The punishment definitely DOES NOT fit the crime. Our society as a whole is better off WITHOUT inhuman monsters like these. They should not be allowed to reproduce, they should not be allowed appeal after appeal and law-abiding citizens should not be forced to feed, clothe and provide medical\dental\vision care for year after year. I'm so sorry for the loss suffered by the families and friends of these innocent young ladies who where taken away before their lives really began.

I so agreed that all of these men should be put to death....My hope is that these two families find some comfort in the fact that these animals will be old men if and when they come up for parole.... Do not give up, for God has a very special place for these kind of people.... Hopefully their stay in prison will be most unpleasant....Isn't it amazing that their will to live means something to them but they gave no thought to the awful way these two young girls had to die...I also think it is a sin that they can go out peacefully and not the kind of death they inflicted upon Jenny and Elizabeth...

I think the sick bastards that did this to these young girls should die a slow, painful death and burn in hell. May God be with the families in all times. And, don't worry - they will get what they deserve. justice will be served.

I lost a loved one as well in 1998 and know how it feels. I also know too well about being in a gang and I'm just glad I got away from that lifestyle before I would have ended up that way.

There are no words that i can say that will tell of the anger I feel towards those boys (correction-ANIMALS) who raped and brutally murdered those two beautiful girls. The Death Penalty is too good for them.....SCUM. They should give the Parents the right to do what they want with them.. God Bless The Ertman and Pena Families. x

I graduated from Waltrip in 95. I remember all of this as if it was yesterday. I still get chills when I hear Jennifer or Elizabeth's names. I had the pleasure of meeting both Elizabeth and Jennifer maybe a few weeks before this tragedy. I did not know them well but they were good friends, you can tell. I was lucky to have met them when I did. Sometimes things do not make sense but the fact that those guys are in jail does.

D.H. Laurence the English writer once said, "It is not the dead I mourn for but the ones they leave behind." In this case it's the dead I mourn for and the loss of love. Let something good come from this repetition of abuse and evil!!! in our world. let us all heal our anger and woundedness as a tribute to Jenny and Elizabeth. do not let them win or give them anymore pain to enjoy. May your families bond in LOVE and let the healing begin. I send you courage and good wishes. Sincerely, Antoinette G. Chavez May10,2005 Carmel by the sea ,Ca

I want to start by saying how sorry I am for your loss. There really are no words to comfort anyone in this situation. Maybe this will help a little, I hope with all my heart that those animals will get the same treatment they gave those beautiful girls. Why should they get peace by being dead when they deserve to be in hell for the rest of their sorry lives. Let them live the hell that they deserve in prison, never having peace ever. Again I am sorry for your loss. Please take care.

I still grieve for this family and all other families who have experienced similar tragedies. I know one day that according to Rev 21:1-4, god promises we will see our loved ones again. It is also heartwarming to know that they are not in pain Eccl 9:5 says the dead are conscious of no pain. It is as though they are in a deep sleep. The bible holds out a promise of a resurrection where we can see these two lovely young women again. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. We know that although their lives were taken at an early age and it has been some time since, the pain never goes away. Sincerely, crkelly

Hello, my name is Dee. I was born and raised in Conn. During the Times of Michael Ross's murders I lived in Lisbon, a few mile away from where he committed some of his murders. I have thought of all of his victims, and their families every day. I'm not only a friend of one of his victims sisters, but had a very close encounter with him when I was younger. I just want you all to know that Jenny, Elizabeth and their families will never be forgotten about in my heart. God bless all of the victims and their families. May you all find peace in your lives. I just want everyone know that even though I hope to never feel the same pain as you, I still can't help to feel pain, anger, and confusion for why things of this nature have to occur. May the angels watch over you and guide your family through the many days months and years that you will have to go on remembering your horrible loss. You all will always be on my mind, and in my heart.

Heartfelt condolences go to you and the rest of your family. My son, Paul, was murdered June 25, 2002 in Jackson, MS. A victim of an armed robbery in the gun shop where he worked, he was shot twice. The first shot wasn't fatal, but then the kids came and shot him again in the lower back as he lay on the floor. It's been almost 3 years now, and it still seems unreal. Kindest regards.... Stephen

I am very angry that the Supreme Court feels that just because someone is under the age of 18 that they do not know right from wrong. They knew-even the 14 year old knew. All I can think is that God wants them to suffer before they die. My thoughts and prayers are with you always.

I am so very sorry for your loss. This is just a horror unthinkable. I have to believe that some people are spawns of evil seeds that should never be born. The world would better off if the devil's seed went unsowed. Parents that have killers like this have a shame that has to be accepted. I know if my child murdered some beautiful girl like this, I would have wished I never give birth to them. Please know I am praying for your family.

The reason why I found this site and read it was because of a paper on Capital punishment I was working on in school. I have never been more upset and determined that capital punishment must be present in our justice system. The aftermath pain that you have experienced only increased your grief and I am so sorry that such scumbags and parasites exist in our daily lives and happen to ruined your lives. I am also sorry that our legal system is somewhat slow and keeps such low-lifes alive even after they are being convicted and proven guilty. I just hope that one day you will find some peace and try to live a normal life. God Bless you and your beautiful girls wherever they are.

I have read almost everything that ya'll have written about the cases. when I read it I about cried. I'm only 17 myself right now and it scares me to know that there are people out there that really do things like that. I hope that the girls RIP and always look over their families during these hard times.

I would like to send my deepest heartfelt sorrow in the loss of these two beautiful girls. I lost my mother at the tender age of 10 - she was a victim of crime, brutally murdered. the pain you are feeling can not be understood by anyone who has not walked in your shoes. I know I have to forgive in order to heal. It has been 30 years, I have forgiven but not forgotten. what could have been will never go away. just know that these angels are watching over you. when things happen in your life that are unexplained that is there way of saying hey! we are here looking out for you always....

I recently moved to the area and began walking in the park at TC Jester. After reading the names of the girls on the benches today I had to find out who they were and what happened to them. What a tragic story. I am both moved to tears and also so very angry. I will think of them every time I go to the park now, and will keep them, and their friends and families in my prayers. God Bless them all.

There are no words. I never knew these two young women, but I cry for them anyway. God bless them and you, the families. I cannot imagine this happening to anyone. Close the borders!!! Reinstate death for juveniles who fit the punishment.

I came across this story purely by accident. I was looking for movie information on the actress Elizabeth Pena and this story came up. My heart goes out to the families of Jenny and Elizabeth. Two beautiful young girls with their whole lives ahead of them and to be cut short by a group of monsters. I hope justice will be served. These demons deserve the worst type of punishment for their crimes. God Bless both of the victims families.

It is important to tell the story you shared on this site. It is important for me as well as others to know how precious life is. I only hope the lesson we can all learn from this, as a society, is to take the gift of life seriously. If life is not taken for granted on this earth, no matter if the person is good or bad, then perhaps we can put a stopper on murder. My heart goes out to the victim's family... and the defendant's family.

I think this is so sad what happened. I want to go to law school and try to help to change the laws because of this $hit. Excuse my language but this is ridiculous. People shouldn't kill people. I mean an animals mauls a human and is put to death, but a human kills another or harms another and its like NOTHING!! The laws make it too easy for people to get away with things like this. I think they should just be killed if red handed. There is no reason to feed, or even keep these idiots alive. They are worse than animals. They are freakin' parasites to society. The world would be so much cheaper and I don't want my tax money to go to these damn losers. Starve them or just kill them. I bet if the laws were tighter people wouldn't be pulling crap like this. They can all die and the people that are against the DEATH penalty F- you too because you are for helping out cold-blooded people. I think rapists should have the death penalty too because there is no reason why they should be alive. They took the life away from someone and it will NEVER be the same. I can understand if one is put on trial because of uncertainty, but not if they are red-handed. F- them. They can all die, if you support them. you can go to hell to because you are one of them. Don't BS society how you want there to be 2nd chances and they deserve a fair trial and 2nd degree, 3rd degree, manslaughter! Those are f'ing excuses! You go to jail for them if you love them so much and you can die with them! You idiots. Once again i am sorry for what happened But I am SICK AND TIRED OF PEOPLE KILLING PEOPLE!!!!

People like these boys who have no human feelings or compassion do not EVER deserve to be free among the living again. They are proof that the devil himself walks among us. I personally hope the devil sees to it that they are treated with the same consideration that these boys afforded these two beautiful young ladies. To their families, God bless you and keep you always...

Hi, I am 17 years old, and I read this story, and I want to say to the parents that, I'm sorry for everything that these guys did to your daughter and her friend. I don't understand why they picked them. I would totally want to send them to the death penalty. They seriously deserve it! All that I want to say is, is that if this is the parents of Jennifer Ertman, just email me, sometime. I would love to talk about anything you want to, because I know that you would love to get your anger out some how. I get my anger out on the wrong people, so I'm trying to take my anger out when I'm writing poetry. I know I can't do much, but please email me soon. I would love to help you guys in any way possible. Sincerely: someone who cares!

I was the same age and when the news hit, it hit hard. I've told this story to my 15 year old daughter several times to remind her of the evil people out there. It's very sad to say that this very well could've been me since I lived in the neighborhood. I'll continue to pray for the families. God Bless!

The families of the 2 girls and the 2 girls are also in my prayers as are so many other families and children including the family of either last week, week before or the week before that whose daughter was buried alive and stayed buried for 2 weeks.... : (  I also agree with the gal that said people that do that should be executed for what they've done and our government along with the court system sucks big time but I hope it will get better but I have my doubts. just like I have my doubts that people who want to hurt or kill other people will go away..... After reading your story and hearing about the other little girl that died from being buried alive and also the one in South Dakota who was left outside for 9 hours in the freezing cold.. : (   I just hope after joining the army national guard that I can make a difference in someone's life if not a lot of peoples lives... I think we need more people that will do that instead of thinking about themselves which are the ones that are greedy and want to kill other people or as far as that goes even pick on someone else or hurt them because they should tell another person if something bad is happening that someone else is doing even if that would call them a snitch..... Because it's a lot better then hating all the time and i know how that feels too because i was picked on, told i was worthless and other stuff when i didn't do anything wrong or at least i don't know of anything.. If anybody knows anything about that girl that died from being buried alive and the girl in south dakota I'd sure appreciate it and I am really very sorry to hear about your daughters and all the families of the 2 girls!!!! : (

This story was very touching and changed the way I feel about the death penalty! As soon as I got done reading I almost cried! Why do people have to be so cruel to one another? We are all the same kind. God didn't create us to kill each other! I am very sorry in the deaths of your children and I will be sure to spread this touching story! To those who also read: I hope that the "gang" members are never forgotten for their heinous crime, and what they did was the worst thing that I have ever heard of before! I am a strong believer in the death penalty and this was one of the stories that my opinion fits 100% for! Thanks for sharing your story with me! EVERYONE ELSE: This was a touching story and I believe that this was the worst crime ever!

I am a Lieutenant with the Galveston County Sheriff's Office. I remember this case as if it were yesterday. Such beautiful young girls to meet such a tragic end. I remember the contempt these punks showed towards everyone. My thoughts at that time were these guys are pigs and deserve the death penalty. I have since changed my opinion on this matter. I love animals and if I had to kill a pig, I would do it in a humane manner, a luxury I would not afford the trash who could do something like this. I knew it was wrong to rape and kill long before I was 17 and so did this trash. Someday maybe our courts will see what we see. God bless the family and friends of these young angels. Rest assured God has found a place for them.

i am sorry to have heard about this. i just read it because i am doing and essay an death row. I think that they all deserve the death penalty even if they were under 18 at the time of the crime, and just because they were from Mexico that should not stop their execution. they live here in the USA - they should get punished just like they would if they were Americans. I know this is still hard for your families to have to go through and i just want to let you know all know that both of the families of Elizabeth Pena and Jenny Ertman are in my prayers.

I REMEMBER WHEN THIS HAPPENED, I SAW ONE OF THE GIRLS' FATHER ON TV PLEADING TO THE PUBLIC FOR HELP. IM WRITING A REPORT ON THE DEATH PENALTY, IF YOU'RE UNDER 18 WHEN THE CRIME WAS COMMITTED ARE YOU PROTECTED BY 8TH AMENDMENT. THIS STORY HAS STAYED IN MY MIND AND ONE DAY AT WORK I WAS READING THE PAPER WHEN I CAME ACROSS THAT THESE KILLERS WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE, EAT, WATCH TV, TALK TO AND VISIT THEIR FAMILIES. I FEEL FOR THE FAMILY OF THE VICTIMS. ITS NOT FAIR

I knew Jenny from middle school. We didn't talk much but had a few classes together. She had a very upbeat personality and was always making everyone in class laugh and often put a smile on my face. When I heard the story on the news that one day and heard both Jenny's and Elizabeth's name called out, I started to cry. Then I heard Cantu's name and I got angry. He lived in the same neighborhood as I did and we all knew he was trouble. It saddens me always when I hear both of their names mentioned and how hard it is for their families. But always know that our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families. May God Bless You.

Jennifer Ertman was my babysitter during this ever so horrible event. She was sorely missed by my parents as well as us children at the time. I am now 22 and graduated from Waltrip High School in 2001. To this day, this is a very frequent topic of our family and how the judicial system has really done justice right in the case. I want to let the family know that she is still a memory in or minds and hearts, and we pray everyday that the families receive comfort from the community and nation, as this has truly touched me on a personal level.
