Too many things this week are too difficult to understand.
20 Kassam rockets and mortar shells have landed in Israel from Gaza,
while Israel sent hundreds of trucks filled with tens of 1000’s of tons
of goods and fuel into Gaza just this past week.
Activists from around the world fight to get to Jerusalem to protest,
while the world ignores that east Africa is starving.
The murder of Leiby Kletzky z”l in Brooklyn is impossible to comprehend,
as is strapping explosives to a child making her a walking bomb,
as they did in Afghanistan.
When child safety is not a basic belief…it is too difficult to understand.
Time to take a break for something sweeter, perhaps an ice cream
or melon that is now in season.
as dozens of teams gathered in Kikar Safra, Safra Square,
for a basketball derby.
A few young women wore colored team shirts
and possibly a future star could be found in the crowd.
Cyclists were out adding color to the streets.
From Kraft Stadium,
a Woodstock revival filled the air with music and smoke.
The Thursday night audience was colorful…
The heavy warm air of last week brought vivid colors
to the summer skies at sunset,
a perfect time to take a break and just enjoy the view.
After the dark of night…the colors at sunrise were again hard to describe.
From the darkness of last week to the light of another day…
for the refuah shelamah of Tzuriya Kochevet Bat Sarah,
may the colors of sunrise be in your future for many years to come.
