Remembering the silent ones

Although war rages because of them, we don’t hear the voices of the three kidnapped Israeli soldiers — Gilad Shalit, age 19; Eldad Regev, age 26; and Ehud Goldwasser, age 31. Lest they be forgotten (which is generally a good source for information about Israel in this time of war), asks that concerned people put pressure on the International Red Cross to assure those soldiers’ safety. Here’s the info:

    I remember a time when the weak suffered what they had to and the strong did what they wanted. Even when the weak are protected by their nation… nothing seems to have changed much. The strong still do what they want, and the weak and helpless suffer what they may.
