I wish to concentrate on love and not on hate especially these days with so much hatred directed against us. What separates us from our enemies is that we can direct our energies to positive despite the fact that so many of us have suffered not only on a national level from the terror ,wars and hatred, but on a very personal level- family and friends that we have lost.
I personally know so many who have suffered the agony of loss, and instead of filling themselves with hatred like our enemies who look for any excuse to attack and murder us, turn towards doing good in memory of our loved ones.
I have the privilege of being involved – living and working in the heartland of our Nation and along with family and friends whom I have lost personally from the terror and wars, I see how the memory of our loved ones is directed into positive activities: races, camps for children of families of victims of terror, lectures and so much more.
While this is the reality of course it is ignored by those who hate us – even from inside of our Nation – and search for any excuse to put the onus of the blame on the “occupation” the “frustration of the Arabs living here inside of the Land of Israel”. Even outside of the Land of Israel the terror is blamed on us here in our Land.
While all of this is going on and the media collaborates with those who hate us, on the ground we witness the strength of love and determination to fulfill our mission as Jews and especially to be able to do good in memory of our loved ones z”l.
I would like to remind everyone that like a mosaic floor each of us is different – different shape, color, direction in life – but together in unity we complete the mosaic of our Nation, and together we must unite in love of our heritage and protect it.
