Land of the prophets, city of the great King, and now a cup of trembling for the entire world to see. The world may turn against you, but if G-d is a keeper of covenant, the righteous will not be utterly forsaken- on all sides. For there are none who are perfectly righteous, and none who are totally evil. Every man is some mother’s son, and every woman is someone’s daughter, or sister, or mother in turn. We all feel the same raging grief at our loss. How can we not? My heart lies as heavy as any concrete sepulchre- weeping for the incalculable children whose lives were snuffed out by hatred long before the rockets & missiles were launched. Where are those who would love and pursue peace?
