In Memoriam

This weekend, all of us here at Lux are taking a moment to reflect. In the spirit of Memorial Day, we first and foremost acknowledge the incredible sacrifices the members of our armed services have made around the world, including in Afghanistan, where 13 service members were killed in a bomb attack in Kabul during the American evacuation last August. Their efforts and sacrifices will never be forgotten.

Here at home, we also want to acknowledge the staff working on the frontlines, from public safety to healthcare, who have worked and sacrificed under incredible stress the past year to keep America healthy and safe. With the United States crossing one million fatalities from the Covid-19 pandemic earlier this year, our dedicated frontline workers have been instrumental in preventing an even worse tragedy. Thank you.

It’s been an incredibly challenging time for America, even more so this week with the mass school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Our thoughts are with the parents, teachers, staff and community affected by this national tragedy, as well as with a dream for a safer and more peaceful nation.
