Rabbi Harold Kushner
Let the rain come and wash away
the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds
held and nurtured over generations.
Let the rain wash away the memory
of the hurt, the neglect.
Then let the sun come out and
fill the sky with rainbows.
Let the warmth of the sun heal us
wherever we are broken.
Let it burn away the fog so that
we can see each other clearly.
So that we can see beyond labels,
beyond accents, gender or skin color.
A Jewish man from Israel and a Muslim man from Paelstine held a cardboard sign that said "why can't we all get along" on a street corner in Midtown Manhattan. Shared on Facebook by Do Something, youth social cause non-profit organization, the photo had thousands of shares, close to 7,000 "likes" and hundreds of comments.
