Being an Israeli should be a privilege not an curse but, just lately, this seems to be a really dubious privilege.
I have no intention of bemoaning what has been lost or has been failed to achieve, especially in the last 10 days and I’m not going to cry over the spilt milk and honey that has seeped through the cracks in our scorched and ‘Oh so holy’ soil.
I’m not writing this to wail or lay blame,
After the last 10 days of pandemonium I believe I have reached some kind of insight, possibly even enlightenment, or maybe simply a better understanding, albeit tainted by an increasingly overwhelming and uncontrollable wave of desperation and frustration, that we have lost our way and we are once again wandering alone in the desert.
Right Now would be a good time to STOP – take a deep breath and remember the word
The more we listen the more we understand
توقف . תפסיק . متوقف کردن. ተወ. Dur. やめる. रुकें. 停止 . halt. Arrêtez. detener
The more we listen the more we respect.
The more we listen the more we will be respected.
Écouter. Hör mal zu. escucha. 听 . बात सुनो. 聴く. dinlemek. استمع . להקשיב. گوش بده
JUST STOP AND LISTEN
Perhaps we’ll realize that not only can we be heard but that others have something to say too.
