To all the world,

one can say only, Ha’makom yenahem etkhem betokh she’ar avelei Tziyonvi’Yerushalayim.

That there are mourners to mourn in Zion is specially the legacy of one of the greatest men ever to live, whom we mourn this day: Sir Nicholas Winton MBE.

I saw his death noted on Twitter this morning, then couldn't understand why it wasn't the leading item in the news. A life very well lived!

Quite.

And of course - w/ hon. exceptions such as MSP - the Yanks, being utterly provincial, have yet to twig, most of them. There is nothing worse than a provincial and small-minded and self-obsessed empire.

I don't catch up enough on LJ (am currently going back a month) but this and your other posts are, as usual, wonderful and timely.
