Riva and Cyril Morris
Ra'anana, Israel
Here in Israel, we share America's grief at the tragic loss of seven wonderful people, each of whom embodied the ideals of dedication and courage, and was a person who dared to push himself or herself to the limits of human capability. They showed us all how people of different races and religion can work together for the good of mankind. We pray that their families will be comforted by knowing that they were doing what they passionately wanted to do. God bless and comfort them all.

Stand Tall, I say, stand tall and be proud. You, more than anyone, know that your loved ones would want you to live on with peace, pride and honor. Through you, they will live on and continue to accomplish the things that they set out to do. Embody what they embodied; truth, perseverence, honesty, love, risk, and sacrifice. Make it so. They are standing tall and smiling with you.
