Maybe it’s not too early to start thinking about how we can properly commemorate the 25th anniversary of Rabin’s murder.  It’s only another 364 days away…

Maybe we can find this time to put aside turning this day into an opportunity for political debates.  Or even debates over whether the day should allowed to be political…

Maybe we can find a way to commemorate something tragic without making it about our personal opinions.

Maybe we can put aside conspiracy theories about the how and who and what that will never change anything but only inspire more pointless anger.

Maybe we can actually think outside of our personal boxes to see whether rather than this being a day of division it can somehow we used to unite.

Maybe we should adopt some form of national couples counseling to renew and rebuild our relationships with one another.

Maybe we can recognize that the other side isn’t always so terrible, that there is potential for dialogue even when people think differently than us.
