Below is an excerpt of letter written by Steven Sotloff, read at his memorial service this past Friday. According to the CNN article, the letter was smuggled out of Syria sometime in May of this year and delivered to his family in Florida.
"Everyone has two lives.
A second one begins when you realize you only
have one. Hug each other every day.
Please know I am OK.
Live your lives to the fullest
and pray to be happy".
