PostSecret

29 Aug

There is a website called Post Secret which is a collection of mailed in postcards from all over the world. The postcards depict life experiences through the eyes of the sender of the postcard. Some just have words, others have pictures and others have both. Some of these postcards are horrific and others might warm the heart.

But the picture above chills my heart to its core. The Hebrew writing you see says “For these do I weep” and written in English “I do not believe in Peace anymore” and of course the picture of the Monsters.

This Hebrew quote comes from Lamentations, “Aicha” and depicts the bloody destruction of Jerusalem.

What a frighting thought that there is at least one person or even many people out there that cannot believe in Peace in Jerusalem and over the entire Jewish Nation? We have all suffered here in Israel but that should not and cannot stop our belief that one day we will have Peace, true Peace.

I am not trying to belittle these thoughts, fears and outlook on the situation. But it makes me feel so sad that there are people out there that feel this way. Whether it was through direct personal tragedy of this person or through a general feeling of helpless. Either way my heart goes out to all those people out there that feel that this situation here in Israel is helpless.

Some might believe Peace will come from negotiations and giving back what is not theirs to give back and others believe that ultimately it all comes from the Heavens above. We need to do our utmost to prove to Him that we do in fact need Jerusalem and need him to show us his presence in His holy city again.

    This isn’t the first time I have heard people believe peace to be dead.Jeremy Paxman, a British News Show presenter said a few years ago “The road to hell is paved with good intentions so what hope is there for peace in the Middle East”.I don’t know what will be in the future, and I do hope there will be one day when we can live in peace, and I pray that to be in our lifetimes, but who knows.

    Note that the person didn’t write that they didn’t believe in PEACE, rather that they didn’t believe that peace would be achieved during their lifetime. There’s a world of difference between those two statements. It’s not unrealistic to think that Israel is unlikely to achieve a true and complete peace with her Arab neighbors any time in the next 50 years. Of course it’s very sad, but not a crazy thought, the way the world looks these days.P.S. Found your website through Chayei Sarah’s. You seem tres cool…
