Noam Apter

These words

"Everybody has within him his own temple.
In some, it's in ruins.
Some don't realize that it even exists.
But this temple is in every being.
It's our soul.
Someday,
all the private temples within us
will stand upright
and then
we will be prepared
to bring the Divine, the Shechina,
into the world...."

were from the trove of poems found in Noam's desk after his incredibly heroic and fatal act of saving his fellow students from terroristic murder. May his blood be avenged.
