    the Memorial Plaques in the Truman Building.  That (at least)  four more will be added at the next ceremony in May is tragic.  But, it is part of the risk that the Foreign Service accepts.

    During the first day of my orientation as a Foreign Service Officer in 1984, we were taken to view the plaques.  It was a moment that made a great impression on me, and, I am sure, all of my colleagues.  We mourn for those who have been lost, but, we carry on with the work with which we have been tasked.

    Ultimately, the only thing that matters with respect to preserving choice is who will be nominating the next Supreme Court Justices.
