Video: Surviving Terrorism

I was very troubled after yesterday's killing of 16 Israeli civilians by a vicious Palestinian homicide / suicide bomber south of Tel-Aviv. Not only 16 civilians were murdered, but over 50 were wounded, including 20 that are in critical condition. has a video that shows what is the life of a survivor of a terrorist attack. It includes interviews with survivors, including children, and shows their suffering, both physical and emotional. One of the victims' Mother says:

"After my daughter lost her leg, she's like a doll. We have to pick her up and move her around. Such an injury can take the life out of a person".

Another Israeli mother says:

"Peace, there's no other solution. So why go through a war and loose more lives on both sides when we all know that peace is the only solution?"
