This ones for Moshe Holtzberg

Moshe Holtzberg, Mumbai shooting survivor who lost both his parents

Moshe Holtzberg, Mumbai shooting survivor who lost both his parents

A loving hand strokes his hair.

A kiss

A cuddle

Mothers smell

Smell of security

Fathers beard brushing across his face

A prayer in his ear

Familiar voices,

soothing, singing,

Time to sleep,

A sound,

loud,

unfamiliar,

Bang,

Bang,

Bang,

Bang,

Shouting

Tense

Fear

Running,

Arms tight,

firm

Muscels stiff with fear

Stop!

A gasp

Falling

A heartbeat

Silence

Red

Wet

Silence

Smell of something red?

Voice of prayers?

Smell of blood

Cold

Not safe

He hears cries

His cries

Louder

No comfort

No whispers

No prayers

Sleep

Hunger

Awakens

Cries

Dark

Night

Sleep

Cries

Voice….

Sandra….

“Imma, Imma”

Cries

Light

Voices

Confusion

A vehicle

Sandra

“Imma Imma”

My prayers are with each and everyone of the survivors, the orphans, the parents who lost their children, the people who witnessed the bloodshed.

  1. One good thing is happening already at Gateway of India after the terrorist attacks at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai. The Pigeons are returning.
