Jerusalem's September 11 memorial

.
I like this Mother and Child Center at Hadassah Medical Center mostly because of the flags.
.
We in Israel are especially united in memory with the people of the United States today.
.
I urge you to watch a 4-minute video of the dedication of the September 11 memorial sculpture and plaza in the Jerusalem Hills.
Its plaque reads

"A REMINDER OF SHARED LOSS AND A CALL FOR PEACE AMONG NATIONS."
.
The names of the 9/11 victims are written there, in the Jerusalem Forest, that we may remember.

I didn't realize that there was a 9/11 memorial in Jerusalem. Thank you for standing with us. And a call for peace among nations should be heard far more strongly.

This will always be a sad and tragic memory caused by hate, an inability to see reason with no attempt to understand each other.

Hi Dina! I put a slide on my blog about 9 11, but it's not really good. I'll send you the original slide which I got from Patty Lincoln last year. It's a horrendous crime to humanity! It created hatred and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and who knows more attacks on our entire planet.

Being in Rome now, I can only think of Latin adage "Si vis pacem...".

Shalom and thank you, friends, for your strong words.

VP, yes, well, we seem to do the para bellum part pretty well. I just wish more would wish for peace.

this too will pass said...

An interesting blog; I believe a fair and just settlement for the Palestinians would go a long way to making the world a safer place; kind regards, Charles
