The Day Before Yom HaShoah
April 20, 2009 § 5 Comments
We have mourned our losses –
tiers of stacked cord, bins of piled
clothes, worn and bloody soles.
We have recovered portions of history –
dairies, photos, Torah, art
remain without the souls that carried them.
We have refreshed our spirits.
We have renewed our families.
We have born new hope.
But we cannot replace who did not survive.
