What Israel’s Remembrance Day looks like when YOU are the orphan

Israel takes a day, Yom HaZikaron where it remembers its fallen soldiers. We see wives remembering their husbands, orphans remembering their fathers. There is only one word and it’s heartbreaking.

The IDF Orphans Sing

Since the creation of the State of Israel over 23,000 soldiers have fallen. Leaving behind wives, daughters, sons, mothers, and fathers. Today, Israel is united in mourning all these lives that were cut short.

This song brings the wives and orphans together. After going through the tragedy of losing a family member so young, they somehow have the strength to pick up and continue. They continue for those that can not. In this song not only are they asking for strength but perhaps a chance to turn back time. To meet their father, to change the ending of the story. What these orphans would do for one more hug.

These are the lyrics to the song and it breaks my heart. The pictures from the video, I can not watch without crying. I try and put myself in their shoes but I can not fathom what it would be like to be them. I only hope God gives them the strength they need to continue to pick up their lives after such a loss.

‘Give’ by Roni Dalumi

Give me the fire that infiltrates in me and breathes

Burning to the depth of my heart

Give me the wind, that never stops

On the sand, it writes my name

Give me the hatch to see, the entire glory

That comes, to light up my way

‘Cause already, the dark closes me the door

Sneaks again into my bed

Give me a tomorrow that I could return the time

Which was closed in me

Give me a tomorrow that I could change everything

Let me write over the end of the story

(chorus)

‘Cause if you’ll just give, so I could of imagine

So I could shatter the walls of my loneliness

‘Cause if you’ll just give, so I could risk

Ignite and burn the walls of my silence

Give me the fire that infiltrates in me and breathes

Burning to the depth of my heart

Give me the wind, that never stops

On the sand, it writes my name

Give me a tomorrow that I could return the time

Which was closed in me

Give me a tomorrow that I could change everything

Let me write over the end of the story
