Families Cannot Forget, Let Us Remember
It is a year since Operation Pillar of Defense.
It is a year since a young family was wiped out for the crime of
sitting in their living room.
A rocket from Gaza blew out the entire outside wall of their apartment,
killing Yitzhak Amsellem,
taking two other young lives and destroying the entire contents of their home.
Shrapnel from the blast pierced metal.
The neighbors’ homes were damaged,
but already a few days after the bombing, they were replacing windows.
Though Israelis repair quickly and move on after a terror attack,
their families can never forget.
Being in those ruins, I find it hard to forget.
Please let us at least remember the dead once a year.
