3 months…

90 days…

2.160 hours.

That is how long Chaya Zissel Braun was alive. She was murdered by Hamas terrorists in Jerusalem.

Her family had been to the Western Wall. It was their first trip there. Imagine the joy her parents had earlier today. The laughter, the tears of joy.

Now imagine them all standing there waiting on the train. They had just left the Kotel. She is so full of promise and is so loved.

Then, the unimaginable happens. A car, going right at them. I cannot imagine how scared her parents were. I won’t allow myself to imagine that.

Little babies are not supposed to die, especially like this. She was loved, protected and adored. Her parents and her were just waiting on a train. They were not soliders or in government. THEY WERE JUST WAITING ON A TRAIN.

Tonight, instead of putting her to sleep in her crib, her parents are burying her. Instead of watching her sleep, her parents are burying her.

Children are not supposed to die like this. She was just three months old.
