World Is Witness

My shock at the theft of the Auschwitz sign near the end of Chanukah left me speechless. I will try to put some of what I felt in words, elsewhere.

The ambiguity is because without complete records, one must put pieces together...

I wondered, in the light of my shock, what I can do to help people understand that we all are one: Where one suffers, the earth suffers. With hate, we are destroying ourselves.
