I had a whole other post planned for today--but in light of the news, it doesn't feel right.
Today, Israel buried three of our boys. And even if we never knew these boys, even if we weren't physically within Israel's boundaries today, our whole community has been in morning.
As one of the eulogists pointed out, we have lost more than children--we have lost future grown men, sunny wedding days and starry nights, newborn babies, and a whole life full of memories. Three lifetimes worth of experiences that should have been had but will never be.
May G-d comfort their families--and give us the strength to continue to create light in this sometimes dark, dark world.
