are an incredible people

Facing oppressions -

Not of their Choosing

Not Deserved


by their supposed allies

Killed, injured and tortured

in the name


That which they did not create

They are not responsible for Hitler

Some have killed - true

So many have persisted

in Peaceful Struggle


So Much Hatred

So Much Hurt

I can not imagine

Carrying Love

In their Hearts

as so many continue to Do

After all that they have Faced

and Continue to Face

I am ashamed,

as a Jewish, White Man

for What is Done

in My Name

I hope

for a Better World

for a Lasting Peace

That is Possible

But is Prevented

NOT - by:  Two opposing Sides

But Rather

By "my people" -

sic though it is.

I am sorry!
