I went to the Holocaust Museum.
So powerfully observed and written. It spoke straight to my mind, heart and soul all at once. In these days we are living through - well, witnessing and other souls are living through and dying in - we are asked to go deep. It takes courage to do so as it’s so overwhelming and overwhelmingly dark. Thank you for your insights and your powerful, thoughtful words.
The German holocaust has been like a nail in my head my entire adult life. Even seeing horrible war in Central America I could never get a purchase that level of human barbarity, on how the most civilized well-educated country in the world could annihilate its Jews. Well the nail's been pulled out. Look around; we no longer have ponder: hamas-supporting, Jew-hating demonstrations abound in the West's great cities; never thought I would see it; not in America. Never Again.
