The party's over . . .

Jerusalemites, joined by another 100,000 who came up to the capital yesterday, walked in the Jerusalem Day flag parade through the downtown streets and/or attended national memorial services for soldiers who died defending Jerusalem and/or prayed and then danced and sang at the Western Wall Plaza into the night.
Jerusalem Day is over. The temporary stages and seating were dismantled.
Flags have been trucked away.
Who knows what our situation will be next year at this time.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Shabbat shalom, Sabbath peace to you.

It is always a little sad the day after a celebration or a holiday, it’s a let down in a way, and we never know if we will be around the following year for the next celebration. But as Mahatma Gandhi said” Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”. I would suggest that we should try to be happy as if we were to live forever.
