One Handed Typing!

With hand surgeBenjamin Albaumy less than a week ago, I’m restricted to one handed typing.That said I’m able write, all be it slowly! On the other hand (pardon the pun) my physical self is a bit of a wreck! I look like a crazed lady with a mass of curly hair and a hand resembling a boxing glove. Putting on make-up is fun and I feel like a kid again. After outlining my lips with liner I fill in with lipstick making sure I stay within the lines. All of this being completed with my left hand; of course I’m right handed! Ultimately, after healing and eventual therapy I’ll have use of my hand again, pain free and that is a good thing!

On a more serious subject, today is the 70 anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto Uprising and appropriately named, Yom HaShoah from the phrase Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; “Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day”). Not only observed in Israel but around the world in commemoration of the approximately six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust, Yom HaShoah also memorializes Jewish resistance in the Warsaw ghetto during WWII. I lit a candle last night in memory of Benjamin and all the victims of the Holocaust. A candle or a momentary thought are all we need do to keep their existence alive.
