Virtually a year ago we watched scenes like the one in the video below with great trepidation and a lot of hope. The fervent desire and prayer that the pain of disengagement would lead to something greater and better.
Today I offer my thoughts and well wishes to Gilad Shalit and his family as well as to all who fight on his and our behalf.
A safe return to your home and our thanks for your service. May we all be witnesses to a better time and place. We should live long enough to see a time in which our children wonder why it took so long for peace to come.
