Our Tears Are the Same

Over many years, the stories of these families (Bereaved Families Forum) have so powerfully connected women, men and children who've lost dear ones to violence, occupation and terror.  On my last trip to Jerusalem, Bassam Aramim and Rami Elhanan spoke of immeasurable loss (both have lost daughters), and insisted that only freedom, only reconciliation, only shared public life makes sense now.  What might it mean for us--all of us, here, there--to break down the walls that divide us?
