When you're at a loss for words, singing may be an option. Beautiful music, good singer. I can't stop crying because I can't find any consolation. Isn't there any Gadol Hador who can explain to us what message the Almighty is trying to get through to us, because I honestly don't understand His/this 'language'...

a song, a plea, a please, merci, thank you, mercy
I was't going to watch a song about this massacre but something drew me, perhaps the Divine in us all. My soul. This is a beautiful anguished tribute to the Fogel Family and it is also a cry, Enough Already, Enough!
I feel it. I think anyone listening to this song, or any song within our hearts would feel, just this. Would ask, just this.
And so here I am, at the Wailing Wall. I don't see any women in this picture but I will say, we are the nurturers, we are the womb, we are the Mothers of the earth, and we are at that wall, whether depicted, or not. It is not just the rabbis, about the men who gather, in these pictures, it is a Mother's WAIL. A Mother's WALL. Us too. Us too.
There is nothing to condone what is happening around the world that is about terror, about death, about sorrow, about children, about laughter, about holy.
I go to the wall with the women, daily, the Wailing Wall, and I pray with the men, and I am praying for a Miracle.
We are all connected in more ways than we ever thought possible. One Soul. I believe in the Power of One.
Enough IS Enough. STOP. Give us GREEN, the GREEN LIGHT to move forth in peace, all of us, meaning putting the kind back, into man kind, and making it easier for us to do this.
We are candles, the letter "i" itself is a candle. Contemplate on it. One candle can kindle the entire world, even when all the other candles have gone out. All you need, is ONE, and we are, all of us, deeply ONE.

It was a nice commemoration.

We join our hearts, tears and prayers to the Fogel family, to the people of Itamar, to Israel, to Adonai's chosen and beloved people, knowing that the Lion of Judah will come to deal with the nations and their evil deeds.
