“Rabbi check in…how you doing?”
My cell phone buzzes as I stare intently at my laptop.
A gentle check-in from a friend;
A reminder of support even as I try to offer support.
Every day brings more uncertainty and more pain.
Nails on a chalkboard…a high pitched squeal…the sound of agony and fear.
Taking a deep breath; focusing on whatever positives are there.
I live each day hoping the next day brings peace, comfort, love.
I look to my children and see their smiles, hear their laughter.
I cry for the parents who have lost their children.
I fear for those who still do not know…
I promise to continue to help, in any way I can.
God - bring an end to this…bring peace to all of us.
God - let Your light shine upon all of us.
God - be with all of us…yesterday, today and tomorrow.
God - help us…..
I am a husband, father and rabbi - just trying to help to make the world a better place!
