A beginning might be to read personal stories and wake up the humanity within our own hearts. A dear friend of mine from college, Eve Thomas, just told me about a book release. I Choose Life, is the courageous story of her parents’ lives before, during and after their survival through the Holocaust. You can read an excerpt from the book at: x.libris.
I believe that freedom and peace go hand in hand; that the journey of healing begins with compassionate listening. Please take the time to order this book, to read, indeed to listen to the powerful voices of Sol and Goldie Finkelstein, to choose life for the next generation.
