Zulema reads the preamble to the UN Charter: "We the peoples of the United Nations, determined to release succeeding generations from the scourge of war..."
After the reading, Edwin and Mabel lay the wreath at the War Memorial.
The Charter remains with the wreath. We hope somebody may pick it up and read it.
