I believe that very few Israelis did not think at least once this week about Nahshon Wachsman z"l, and about how we empathized with his parents and siblings during those terrible days in October 1994. This morning, while writing an article for a Dutch newspaper, I found this beautiful and moving In Memoriam that Esther Wachsman wrote for her son. Let's hope and pray that this time the ending will be not as painful and sad as it was twelve years ago, and that any time soon we will see Gilad Shalit and Eliyahu Asheri hug their parents and siblings again. I was very moved when I read this morning that the Shalit family made it known that they hope "that no soldiers will be injured in the operation launched in Gaza to free their son".
