It was with great sorrow
we received the message of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s passing. We remember him for his calming position in a nation that has moved close to the brink of chaos more than once. The people of Thailand mourn their beloved king and his death will undoubtedly leave a hole in the spirit of Thailand for quite some time.
It is our most sincere wish that this hole in the nation’s spirit will not be filled with irrational decisions or hatred. King Bhumibol was perhaps not democracy’s greatest champion but he knew right from wrong and acted when inhumanity and hatred got the upper hand. For this we remember him and his successor should honor King Bhumibol’s memory by working hard for peace and stability.
