Lizcor: To Remember
Zachar - He remembered his boots to trample across the terrain;
He remembered his canteen for water was scarce;
He remembered his loved ones who wait in anguish for his return;
He remembered to breathe, one breath at a time.
Zach’rah - She remembered her weapon to protect herself and her brigade;
She remembered the picture of her parents to hold for comfort;
She remembered to listen to every sound she heard;
She remembered to breathe, one breath at at time.
Yizcor - He will never forget his fallen comrades, lost in the war;
He will never forget the sounds of fear, anger and frustration;
He will never forget the cries of the innocent babies;
He will never forget the last gasps of breath of those who were tortured.
Tizcor - She will never forget the sounds of the rockets falling to earth;
She will never forget the sounds of people running for shelter;
She will never forget the weeping of the devastated parents;
She will never forget those who died fighting for the freedom of others.
Nizcor - We will remember all of them, every last one;
We will remember their names and their faces;
We will remember the terror we felt, are feeling and will feel.
We will remember…we will never forget.
I am a husband, father and rabbi - just trying to help to make the world a better place!
