I have never experienced the Holocaust Day of Remembrance like I did today here in Israel. The sirens went off, I was standing at the window looking over the country side, watching the people getting out of their cars and standing completely still. People walking come to a standstill, no one was moving, no car was driving, just the sound of the siren going off without stopping for a solid 2 minutes. It brought tears to my eyes as I imagined the horrible tragedy and the fear that some have of what is to come.
Later we saw a bus full of Palestinians, we waved at them and smiled, they looked surprised as they waved back and smiled. People want peace with each other. It’s money, power and greed that create war.
