The terrorist attack in Jerusalem
Yesterday in the evening a terrorist broke into a yeshiva (religious school for boys) and killed 8 people. Most of them 14-15 years old. The terrorist was wearing a bomb and was shot before he had the chance to explode by an army officer living near by. May they rest in peace. These are their faces.

Please don't start a political argument over this. Just pray for their souls and families.

"God picks the most beautiful flowers for his garden," the mother of 16-year-old Avraham David Mozes said Friday. "He (God) sees him as an angel, and we should thank him for the privilege of raising him for 16 years. Sixteen years of purity and integrity and kindness."

:(

Prayers for everyone.

How very sad, and what incredible strength and faith that mother must have to be able to speak so eloquently so soon after this tragedy. I will pray for those families.

Yes, I saw that on the news this morning. I'm so sorry. I know the entire country is affected by such terrible acts.

Those boys families and friends are so strong. I pray that they have the strength to travel in peace. That they do not find solace in revenge and anger, but instead in truth and forgiveness.
