Let Us Consider...

Living in Israel, I sometimes feel as though there's at least 1 holiday or national observance a week. But when your religion and culture spans thousands of years, there is much to remember....

Tomorrow (12 April) is the national Holocaust Memorial Day - known here as 'Yom HaShoah'.

Tomorrow also marks the third trial of those Bahá’ís currently being held in Evin Prison in Tehran, Iran.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (George Santayana)

I'm going to be bold here, friends. Now is the time for peace - there can be no room in our lives for "that is the way things have always been done". No more enabling of violence, not even the violence of hatred in your heart.

Remember the past... Change the present... Enjoy the future.
