Giving Deadline a New Meaning

August 15th

Anyone else shake their heads this weekend listening to the news in the Middle East? You know, when Israel and Hezbollah continued to kill at rapid speed, right up to the UN deadline for peace. Either you agree to peace or you do not. There shouldn’t be a handshake on Tuesday with the understanding that you wait until Thursday to stop killing each other. I’m not even taking sides in this battle. I am saying you are both wrong!

If you need a great reason to root for peace, look at this beauty:

Baby Rory

Baby Rory at four weeks. My goodness, she is just gorgeous.

Me and baby Rory

Nice Kleenex box. Oy.

Here’s a photo of her mama, to jog your memory. For this baby girl and all the others in the world — Jew and Arab alike — I wish you a peaceful and happy Tuesday!
