A place of honor for those not here:
•Single setting: symbolizing the vulnerability of a lone prisoner against his captors.
•A white tablecloth: symbolizing purity of intention in responding to the nation’s call to arms.
•An empty seat for they are not here.
•An inverted wine glass: they cannot toast with us today.
•A slice of lemon: reminding us of their bitter suffering.
•Grains of salt: representing the countless tears of the families.
•A single red rose: reminding us of loved ones who keep the faith awaiting their return.
•The burning candle and yellow ribbon — symbolizing everlasting hope of a reunion with the missing.
Until the day they return home or find eternal peace, we will remember.
