As I have been preparing for my visit to Auschwitz, I once again listen to the powerful speech by

Eli Weissel as he accepted the Nobel prize .

Every word is important but those struck a deep cord in me –

“This is what I say to the young Jewish boy wondering what I have done with his years. It is in his name that I speak to you and that I express to you my deepest gratitude. No one is as capable of gratitude as one who has emerged from the kingdom of night. We know that every moment is a moment of grace, every hour an offering; not to share them would mean to betray them. Our lives no longer belong to us alone; they belong to all those who need us desperately”

I will carry those words with me as I bless this new day of life . Feeling so grateful to Be alive and happy !!

Love relli
