More Victims of Hate

My husband's cousin has been in Israel for three weeks now on a learning vacation. She has been too busy with her studies until today for us to get together. It is a fast day, and normally I would have just stayed home, but it has been over two years since we have seen this branch of our family and a little thing like a bit of hunger and thirst wasn't going to keep us away.

So we met in a museum and then went to their hotel, enjoying the breezes by the pool for a little while before heading off to their room to see the beautiful view of the old city beyond their hotel window. What a wonderful sight to see on a Shabbat morning I opined.

We talked about so many little things; politics and family, how the move effected our children and ourselves. A nice quiet family visit, and then my husband headed off to work and I herded the Monkey, the only child to come with us, home.

By this time I was a bit tired and washed out, so I flopped onto the couch and flipped through the television listing, finally settling on the news.

Grandparents Killed in a Roadside Attack.

A couple heading home after Shabbat, who had been on a visit like the one I had just had, a nice Shabbat visit with family. They get back in their car and never make it home.

And Sharon threatens to get tough. Again.

Is it any wonder we're all depressed? :(
