Gilad Shalit and Moishie Holzberg

A news site is reporting that today is Gilad Shalit's 26th birthday. Happy birthday. It goes on to report how he plans to celebrate his first birthday back as a free man with his friends, and it asks the readers what they would wish him for his birthday.

I thought about it, and I connected it to another event from a couple of days ago. When the new school year started this week, many of the news websites had pictures of little Moishie Holzberg entering first grade. Moishie Holzberg is the son of the Chabad shlichim in India who were killed a few years ago in a terrorist attack.

I wish to Gilad Shalit, and to Moishie Holzberg, that they should be able to live out their lives at some point without the prying eyes of the media and the public continuously looking to see what they are doing and how they are doing it. it is enough that they have to live with their pain and memories, they should not also have to live forever with the torture of having the public attention never let them have a quiet moment...
