 Posted: Wed, Jul 21 2010, 10:29 am    Post subject: wrote this before I broke my fast... As I wipe away the curl Of my fresh faced little girl, I think of those faces That haunt me in my dreams. The faces of those little ones Who never said goodbye They never had a voice, They were left to die. Looking thru the pictures That are tattered, in black and white, Those piercing eyes could haunt you Mixture of pride, and some fright. How many little children Were tortured, beaten, killed? All thru our history, Is the quota not yet filled? How can we let another fast day Go on without a tear Why do we not feel the pain Of those mothers from yesteryear? Mothers who had to eat their young Mothers who watched them die Mothers who gave up their lives While their children stood and cried. Eichah yashva badad, Hashem please hear our cries. We are mothers, we are your children, Enough of the hard times. The tragedies of these days, keep coming at a faster pace. Every time we turn around, A disaster has taken place. I know I’m not alone, we all want moshiach now, And if you’re not sure how it can be done, I will tell you how. Lashon Hara, Sinas Chinam, Anger and Tznius Jealousy, Onaas Devarim, Greed , and Rechilus. Try, we must try To better ourselves in these ways And Hashem should bring moshiach, Speedily IN OUR DAYS!!!_________________Jack of all trades- Master of Some.

I think just the opposite, reading this part makes you realize how bad it was and makes you feel along (which mother can read this and not cry)

I am so happy u all liked it, I wrote it really fast and furiously, and didn't think it would come out good. But when I re-read it, it made an impact on me, and wanted to share it with you all. Thanks for the compliments!

Just thinking about all the Aunts, Uncles and grandparents that I never knew, that my grandfather lost makes me cry on T'Shabaav, I am named after one of them and I will never change my name. So many ppl. ask me if I ever used the nickname for my name and my reply is no I am named after someone who died during the holocaust she never changed hers, I will never change mine.
