When tragedy strikes, it is incumbent upon each of us to ask what we can do to help. Like many people around the world, I found the murders of the three Israeli teenagers, Eyal Yifrach, 19; Gilad Shaar, 16; and Naftali Frankel, a 16-year-old dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, shocking. But even more shocking to me than the murders is the silence. Aside from the Jewish community and a few politicians, I have not heard any outcry… and that concerns me deeply.
In an effort to do my part in making a difference in the world, I decided to create a piece of art which will hopefully help kindle a commitment in each of us to become a partner in the peace process, while simultaneously raising awareness about the tragedy… so that’s what I’ve spent the past few hours doing. I invite you to join me in this effort by sharing this post.
May the weight of this shared sorrow unite the world in a cry for Justice, and a prayer for Peace.
