ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 14

I am rereading "Night" by Elie Wiesel. I had to stop several times through the reading. I don't know why I decided to read it again. I had forgotten the writing. I read it years ago. Many years ago. I knew the story, but forgot his writing. I also forgot how slim the book was. In his forward, he told how difficult ít was to find a publisher. It would not be a popular subject . Who wanted to be reminded. Now, we still want to know: How could this have happened. How did we all let it. His family was warned to leave. They thought that it couldn't happen . They thought people wouldn't let that happen. I guess that some where along the way, enough people turned out to be not such good examples of what it means to be our brothers keepers. Never again.Never again.Never again.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
