For Rosa Henson, Tomasa Salinog, and other “comfort women” of World War II

Many of you have breathed their last, will breathe their last
before reaching justice.
Still you march on, knowing that the march is for something
that is worth walking around the world for —
even with knees and feet ravaged by time.
