A siren pierces the air, for two minutes of silence.
All sounds regular to the city cease to exist.
During these 2 minutes,
It doesn’t matter who you are,
Your age, your background, your status in society,
It doesn’t matter where you are.
A classroom, an assembly line, an office, a major highway.
It doesn’t matter what you are.
Student, Teacher, Lawyer, Truck driver
All bow their heads.
Painter, Farmer, Doctor, Clerk
Even those sitting in coffee shops.
Bereaved mothers, pained fathers, siblings and widows.
They unite in pride.
Girlfriends, sons and daughters.
For two minutes,
The barriers between right and left, religious and not, sefardi and Ashkenazi dissolve.
Differences are erased. Distinction disappears.
Two minutes of unity and Solidarity
Two minutes of silence to remember
Two minutes of silent tribute to the
Teachers, students, lawyers, truck drivers
The painters, farmers, doctors, clerks
The Ashkenazim, Sfardim, religious and not
The Fathers, Daughters, Sisters, Husbands, Friends
Who gave their lives
So that we could stand here.
And proudly remember them.
