  1. The suffering, its so painful. May Hashem give strength to all relatives and friends of her husband and children. and May her neshama have an aliyah. Hashem is not telling us anything much different then he tells us with any of the other suffering that we go through. Perhaps the magnitude of this tragedy will reach deeper into people, and with hope these yesurim will result in good deeds that will help bring the Geula faster. This Galus, its dark and painful. we need to have faith and come together as one, and be there, to support one another. May Hashem bring a redemption speedily in our days.
