    In reading the above article, I found myself feeling absolutely furious over the cruel attacks inflicted on those poor families by the mainstream media. How sadly ironic that the political Left has so successfully fooled so many people into thinking that it is the Left that has cornered the market on compassion, when in reality it is they who are the cruel ones, with those whom they mock, the compassionate victims.

    Not wanting to stop at this, I probed a little bit deeper as to why this is, and I think I may have come up with an answer. The root of the political Left is the philosophy of nihilism, of ultimate meaninglessness in the universe. Since nothing has any ultimate meaning or purpose, since our lives are nothing but a tale told by an idiot signifying nothing, it is therefore a joke to be mocked, and therefore the very raw, tender feelings of the families of murdered victims, are willingly trampled upon. In sharp contrast, those with more traditional political and religious values, see G-dliness in everything, or at least that is their goal. In trying to discover that meaning, sensitivity is naturally encouraged and developed.

    How sad it is when the more cynical Left seems to be victorious over the more decent among us, as happened in these most recent Presidential Elections here in the United States, and has now happened with the recent cease-fire in Israel, which serves no purpose other than to give our enemies more time to reload and prepare itself for its next series of attacks on our innocent fellow Jews in our own Jewish homeland. One has to wonder how much suffering the more decent among us has to undergo, before our enemies are obliterated off the face of the Earth.

    Rabbi Adlerstien:

    I read the book when it came out. Your review is precise and accurate.

    You obviously got the intended message of the book, and caught the subtle nuances of pain that bereaved parents have (that we wonder whether non-bereaved parents get). You have shown great empathy and sympathy for those of us bereaved parents.

    [YA – There could be no better endorsement of the book than your approval, Baruch! Yehi ratzon that no parents should have to experience the loss of children.]
