“Where you see no hope, we must invent it!”

1 Comment

That’s just one of my favorite quotes of the night.  Another, “Anyone who listens to a witness becomes a witness.”  Oh, Elie Wiesel was so amazing.  So inspiring.  So incredibly hopeful.  I’m still processing it all.  I want to tell you all about it, but I’m so tired.  I will, though.  I will tell you all about it as soon as I get a chance.  In the meanwhile, know that it was fabulous. and inspiring, and humbling, and just amazing.

Stay tuned.

One thought on ““Where you see no hope, we must invent it!”

  1. It is an honor to listen to the story of a Holocaust survivor, especially one as famous as Elie Wiesel. I read Night long ago in my teens, but learned of the Holocaust at the age of 7 from my father. I am Jewish and have known survivors and appreciate a non-Jew taking the time to care and to listen to something people would rather close their eyes to. History repeats itself and unfortunately, the horrors of modern-day anti-Semitism tend to stay among us, while the world turns a blind eye.

    Thank you and I look forward to your post on the experience through a different pair of eyes. You’re in my bookmarks…
