20th of Av, 5765

Today was the fourth anniversary of the bombing in the Sbarro pizza store in Jerusalem. I visited the graves of some of the victims.

Shoshana Hayman Greenbaum was an only daughter, a young wife and an expecting mother. And a teacher, and a wonderful person and a tourist visiting from the United States.

Malki Roth. Born in Melbourne, Australia. She was almost 16 when she died.

Beside her lies her friend Michal Raziel, who was 16 years old. Her father died when she was a young girl, and she was the youngest of her sisters, the only unmarried child at home. Her gravestone carries a line from the poet Rachel. "All that is really mine, is that which I have lost."
