Paying Our Respects To The Families In Shfaram

On Friday the fifth of August 2006, three families unfortunately joined our still-growing circle of bereaved families who lost their dear ones in the conflict. Four were killed, two of them are sisters from the same family. A group of our members went to Shfram village to pay their respects and condolences.


 Our members, men and women, visited every family's house. They visited the men's mourners tent and the women's mourners tent.

At every house, our members, talked and especially listened. They heard the strong voices of people that refuse to let the murderer destroy our chances for peace and co-existence. Families that refuse to let others in the village use their pain in an excuse for violence. Our members found out that their voice is ours. The voice that refuses to surrender to violence even when we find ourselves in the deepest pain and the darkest void.
