Spring, Freedom, Passover

OK, I am totally verklempt right now.

This is a very moving clip of Gilad Shalit and his family visiting Bibi Netanyahu to say thank you. 

Passover is also known as the holiday of freedom. It starts next week.

Even with all the darkness that surrounds us, and the "choiceless choices", the darkness that surrounded the deal to release Shalit, we have to celebrate freedom.

Jews remember our Exodus from Egypt not just at Passover, but every single Friday night when we say Kiddush, when we bless the wine.

We celebrate our freedom every week, and we need to feel it running through our veins, and animating every breath we take.

I am so glad his disgusting father kept his mouth shut during this very touching visit.
