Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) begins tonight, April 15th, and ends Thursday evening, April 16th.
We honor and remember the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
You can also read about it on Yad Vashmem’s site, here.
Mimi Writes…a beautiful tribute and memorial.
Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
