A bouquet of white roses

A bouquet of white roses... 
In honour of the courage to see when others turn away, to think when others follow blindly, and to speak up when others remain silent.
In rememberance of how terribly wrong things can go, and that even in the midst of wrongdoing
there always is an option to choose humanity over fear-driven madness.

A bouquet of white roses...
In memory of the one White Rose that has touched me deeply when I got to know its story and remained dear to me ever since.
Accompanied with a wish that a sacrifice like this will never be necessary again.
