Leaf #20

One of my colleagues returned today from Jordan after miracously escaping the recent bombings. (She was staying in one of the hotels, when it got hit). The sight there was beyond description, she said. She was rushing down in one of the elevators, to leave the hotel, when a lone tourist asked her with a shaking voice: “My wife was waiting for me at the bar. Do you think she's still alive? Please, tell me she is!” She couldn’t help but repeating those useless words: “I’m sure she is, I'm sure…”
When they reached the lobby, there was no bar anymore.



For a moment there, I pictured how he might have felt. I didn't even come close. But boy it hurt so!
