Yom ha Shoah

Yom ha Shoah

Today (from sundown yesterday to sundown today) is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel. I’ve been honored and humbled in my lifetime to meet four holocaust survivors and discuss with them their experiences. Two of these moments were shared with my oldest daughter. These are moments that she will not be able to experience by the time she is my age .

May we always remember.

In humility we remember the tragic and unthinkable human capacity for evil.

In hope we remember the strength of life and goodness to survive.

In honor we remember those who suffered such great pain and loss.

In remembering may we strengthen the commitment to always stand against such suffering and persecution.

I’m a husband, father, and one of those friends who has a terrible habit of not returning phone calls.  I’m really just trying to figure out what it means to follow Jesus, and I enjoy meeting great people along the way and maybe having a chance to spend time talking about things deep and trivial.
