but then there’s this to listen to

and it’s much more pressing.

I’m copying this from the youtube website:

Composed and Sung by Shmuel Schwartz
Arranged and Performed by John Sawoski
Video by Daniel Sultan

Five members of an Israeli family were slaughtered Friday night when a Palestinian terrorist broke into their home in the West Bank settlement of Itamar and stabbed them all to death. The innocent victims were Rabbi Udi Fogel, his wife Ruth, and three of their children Elad, Yoav and Hadas.

Lyrics:

He was walking home from shul (synagogue) one Friday night
Escorted by two angels, on his left and on his right
It was his last time… It was his last time

His wife prepared the most amazing meal
A mother to his kids, an Eishes Chayil (woman of valor)
It was her last time… It was her last time

Father in heaven, see the crying, wipe our tears, feel the pain
Your children, young and old come together, one another, not in vain
Hear our prayer please- “enough’s enough” we scream
Bring salvation to your nation, Yisrael (Israel).

Three children, so innocent so young
Enjoying Shabbos Kodesh (Sabbath) full of happiness and song
It was their first time, and it was their last time.

Hashem above (G-d), when there’s nothing left to do
Our voices deep in prayer we offer to you
Make this the last time.. Make this the last time

Father in heaven, see the crying, wipe the tears, feel the pain
Your children, young and old come together one another not in vain
Hear our prayer please- “enough’s enough” we scream
Bring salvation to your nation, Yisrael (Israel).

Hear our prayers please- enough’s enough we scream
Bring salvation to your nation, Yisrael (Israel).
