Ceremonial delivery of testimonies was creatively adapted to befit the occasion, rich with meaningful signs and symbols. In the multi-religious gathering the Welcome Dance with lighted candles invoked blessings of Gods and Goddesses for this great occasion.
It was the day of the missing mothers. The 11 mothers waited for 22 years for this sacred moment in history where they could find a burial ground for their sons. So far they were still awaiting the return of their loved ones and their dear sons. Realizing that they would never come back and that they are among the dead the mothers placed a souvenir of their loved ones with some flowers and took part in the burial service. As they pay their last respect they wept bitterly. The tears were not only of grieving and mourning and of healing as well. A Buddhist monk celebrated Pensacola and a Dharma sermon, the catholic burial service was conducted by Fr. Nandana reminding them that their loved ones are in a better place while a Muslim priest prayed for the heavenly bliss of their souls.
