אין מילים Ain Milim, No Words

There are times when the best response is:
אין מילים Ain Milim, No Words


And that's how I feel right now.  When certain tragedies occur, no words will help, therefore that's the best response.  Generally by talking we just make things worse, very unintentionally of course.

Sympathy and support can be conveyed by a look straight in the eye, a pat on the shoulder, a hug or just holding or gripping hands.

Silence says the most.  Absence and the wrong words are the worst.  There are tragedies that put everything into a new more accurate perspective of good and bad, happy and sad.

This will have to suffice for now.

Tzom kal, an easy fast.  May we soon merit the Moshiach and return to the living of those who have passed away.  May Tisha B'Av be a feast day for all, G-d willing.

It is a tragedy. It is also a tragedy that Minister Katz is so afraid of the charismatic Tzippy Hotovely as his deputy that he is telling her to shut up rather than taking advantage of her caring and creativity.

Amen, Batya. May we finally have peace and an end to tragedy. May this family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.

goyish, I'm sure that Katz fears Hotovely for a lot of reasons.
Ruti, amen
