Today is Tisha B’av.
It is one of the saddest says in the Jewish calendar.
It commemorates the the destruction of the second temple by the Romans.
While I am not particularly religious, I feel drawn to this day of mourning.
Students of history have often correlated this day of mourning not just with the destruction of the second temple by the Romans, but other times of crisis in Jewish history.
I saw this video on my Facebook feed this morning.
We know what happens when we give into hate, destruction and dictators who have no problem advocating the destruction of an entire nation.
Maybe we will learn our lesson this time and finally learn from the past.
