A sense of loss, still


More than 18 years after a car bomb attack against the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires killed 29 people, visitors to the site continue to reflect on that terrible moment. The embassy building is gone, replaced by trees and benches that represent the victims. While on a trip this month to beautiful Buenos Aires, my wife and I walked the swanky Retiro district and paused to observe a woman reading tablets where the explosion occurred.

  1. War and these horrific attacks against the innocent will not bring peace. Peace must be found within ourselves. If only the country leaders and politicians could find it within themselves to find peace without weapons. Rest In Peace.

  2. How wonderful to represent the people with trees and benches and not just place another building there. Very touching.
