Zichronam livracha--may their memory be for a blessing.
Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser z"l, the reserve soldiers who were wounded and kidnapped by Hizbullah on the northern border two years ago, came home to Israel today--in coffins. For two long years the families and all of us supporting them knew nothing of their fate.
Today's prisoner swap was painful too to the Israeli families who lost loved ones killed by the five terrorists who were released from prison and returned to Lebanon to a hero's welcome.
These are not the Z words I had planned to post for ABC Wednesday. But it would seem frivolous to do so under the circumstances.
Tomorrow will be another difficult day, with two funerals. To the families we say the traditional "May God comfort you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem."
