Jurek Owsiak became a Knight of the Order of the Smile. The medal is awarded in recognition of his life-long commitment to improving conditions in paediatric medicine and his vocal support of children's rights.
We are all incredibly touched by the support you have continued to show us. We would like to thank you all, and each of you individually for your each and every message, e-mail, and comment. All these missives of support convey a great power of positive emotion, friendship, which give us the strength to keep going.
We are unfortunately unable to reply and thank each of you individually, for there are so many messages. We would like you to know that we value each message and it means a lot to us.
However, we need to ask you for one favour. We keep hearing about meetings, rallies, and other initiatives aiming to show how many people support us in general, and Jurek in particular. Nonetheless, at this time we feel that we are not the ones in need of moral support. Paweł Adamowicz loved ones and friends are faced with a terrible tragedy. They need to feel that they are not alone. We want to show them our support as well show our solidarity with their pain. Please, let's remain in respectful silence and thought until the funeral. Only then we can begin to look to the future, to continue our work at improving it.
