True, if you don't think, read, remember or sing, you don't cry.

Murdered Israelis, Knesset decisions, Majdanek, Reizi's Song, Moishe Golan, terminally ill Yiddishe kids, Amona, "Zeh Haya Beti", golus, Eli Cohen, the Rebbe's voice breaking with emotion, Shirim She'Elazar Ahav.

True, you can ignore them-they don't have to make you cry.

But if you don't cry, you won't change.

Think. Read. Remember. Sing. Cry. Change.

Thank you for your feedback on my poem, "A late-night study."

This piece of yours has brought tears to my eyes. The last two times I cried were within the past month or so. The first was reading news of the return of our brothers bodies from Lebanon, and the second was during a conversation with a close friend regarding the effects of distance and time apart on our close relationship. Now again I weep for our brothers Goldwasser and Regev.
So thank you for creating this opportunity for me.

So firstly, yeah. Like everything you just said, yeah. And secondly, you have become quite a prolific blogger and I am having trouble keeping track of all your posts. And thirdly, thanks for coming back again. You always do make me think and read and remember and sing and cry and yes, even to change.
