Justice, Justice Shalt Thou Pursue

Marking the three-year anniversary of the day a hate-filled madman shot and killed 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue "because they joined together as Jews to pray to God," Pittsburgh residents gathered outside Wednesday near a grove of trees planted to honor those lost to "remember the incredible power in being stronger together," and stronger than hate. The deadliest attack against Jews in American history, said Joe Biden, serves as a grim reminder that, "Hate never goes away, it only hides; and if we give hate oxygen, it can consume." May their memories be a blessing.
