There was another shooting this weekend, targeting Jews. A mother, wife and lovely woman was killed in the Poway, California Chabad synagogue. The rabbi was injured, and now has a missing finger to remind him forever of the tragedy. He stated that “he did not know why G-d spared my life in the Poway synagogue. All I can do is make this borrowed time matter”.
It is not just Jews, but all people that are being targeted. The Muslims in New Zealand; the students just today at North Carolina University. It is heart wrenching, sickening, unfathomable. It doesn’t seem to have any rhyme or reason.
I attended a vigil for the victims at Chabad in Saratoga tonight. It was a comfort, I think for the members of the congregation to see the support. It was especially heart warming to hear the little children singing their little hearts out.
Although, I don’t words to explain or say why things happen, I know that love will prevail, and there is goodness in the world. Our words, our deeds, our kindness will overcome evil. We can hope.
