Birthday candles

The candle burns not for us, but for those whom we failed to rescue from prison, who were shot on the way to prison, who were tortured, who were kidnapped, who ‘disappeared’. That’s who the candle is for.
Peter Benenson, founder of Amnesty International.

Amnesty International is 45 years old today
