I do not often post my political rantings on this blog, nor is it usually maudlin, todays post is a bit of both.
8 innocent lives were taken yesterday. Sometime yesterday afternoon our time, yesterday evening, Israel time, a gunman walked into Mercaz haRav Yeshiva and began shooting. I do not even know most of the partculars. These were innocent Yeshiva Boys who were preparing to have a Rosh Chodesh party, and instead, their parents are now sitting shiva. I came across this picture as I was reading and it just rocked me to my very core.
I cannot stop crying now, for these boys, and for all the other victims of terror. Please let it end soon. Let these families know no more sadness.
