Please end their despair

the Vital Diaries

I saw a parade of thousands and thousands of children in Israel. I saw a nation of children, each one more beautiful and cleverer than the next. I saw a population of Jews in New York, in other places tribes of descending Jews, in countries over the seas. Lord God of Israel!

Please end their despair when they become aware of the total annihilation here. Let them grow strong, marry women, build houses, and I am sure that there will bear good, straight and loyal children for their people, they will be born over quite a short time and their number will exceed those whose lives ended so awfully by the raging scum of humanity.
