The Fallen, Continued from Page 73
House passed a similarly
strong resolution hono-
ing our fallen colleagues.
These heartfelt expressions
of support encourage and
inspire us and strengthen our
resolve to serve the higher
interests of our country
regardless of the dangers
and hardships that are part
of the environment in which
diplomats operate.
The lives and public
service careers of Amb. John
Christopher Stevens, Sean
Patrick Smith, Glen Anthony
Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods
embody the values of service,
courage and patriotism and
their example will continue to
inspire us all.
AFSA Executive Director
Ian Houston recalled a mov-
ing poem that resonated with
him, which he hopes will
comfort all those who grieve
for our fallen colleagues in
Benghazi. The 1932 poem by
Mary Frye reads:
Do not stand at my grave and
weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that
blow.
I am the diamond glint on
snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened
grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

AFSA will always remem-
ber and honor the lives and
service of these patriots.
