Today marks the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. There will be a moment of silence in different places around the world at noon today local time. I didn't know much about or think much about the Holocaust until K and I visitied the Yad Vashem Museum in Jerusalem several years ago. It is hard to forget the things we saw and heard and experienced there. If you think of it today (or any day), pause a moment and remember. While you're at it, pray for people who are experiencing the same kind of brutality and genocide today in places like The Sudan.

Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion!
Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and having salvation,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
I will take away the chariots from Ephraim
and the war horses from Jerusalem,
and the battle bow will be broken.
He will proclaim peace to the nations.
His rule will extend from sea to sea
and from the River to the ends of the earth.
Zechariah 9:9-10
