Amen. It has been a very sad week and you've (as always)put my feelings into words beautifully. The tkhine (sp?) by Debbie Friedman is my favorite of her songs, too - it truly sums up what I, as a mother, wish for my family and what I, as a citizen of my country and the world, wish for everyone: grace, goodness, lightness, and peace.

Thanks, Karen.
I had the opportunity to meet Debbie Friedman when I was a teenager and I got a chance to sing in a choir that she directed as well. She will be missed, as she was a voice for an entire religious movement. My son requests "Miriam's Song" and my favorite is Mi Sheberach. A fitting song to help heal our nation.
