The conflict in Gaza between Israel and Hamas seems to be getting worse by the minute. Hundreds of people have died, and scores have been injured. What do you believe is the right path to peace in this conflict?   This question asks me, as Job says, to “speak what I do not understand; things too marvelous for me, which I do not know” (Job 42:3). And like Job, rather than ‘hiding counsel without knowledge,’ I must only ‘repent in dust and ashes’ before the enormity of my own ignorance.

B etween 1915 and 1923, the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) massacred nearly 2 million Armenians. There were death marches and extermination camps. For the survivors, there were mass exiles. To this day, Turkey has refused to acknowledge this event, and only 26 nations have officially recognized the genocide of the Armenian people. The United States has not recognized the Armenian Genocide, but 42 states have passed resolutions to that effect. Unlike Germany, a nation whose self-reflection has led to a dominant culture of pacifism, Turkey takes the position that these deaths were merely the result of an act of war. As far as Turkey is concerned, there was no Armenian Genocide.

The pain is unending, impossible to heal. These were the words of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Sharon was commenting on the death, 34 years earlier, of his 11-year-old son. The loss of his firstborn, in 1967, was one of several tragedies in Sharon's life; it was preceded by the death of the boy's mother, Margalit, in an automobile accident. With each bereavement, Ariel Sharon, the warrior, was faced with a choice. It was the same choice faced by every grief-stricken individual.

If La Cañada residents were listening closely on Tuesday around 1 p.m. they would have heard a collective sigh of relief coming from the general direction of La Cañada High School. That freeing of spirit was due to the end of finals. Students ran out of classrooms, meeting for a celebratory lunch or just relaxing with friends. Seniors walked out with their caps and gowns neatly folded into tight, plastic bags. There was excitement and a little melancholy as they realized that this was it, their last week of school.
