10 years after Second Lebanon War, for a bereaved mother the pain is only worse

A family can live day-to-day on the edge of a black hole, always struggling to keep from falling into the abyss of grief and loss. For Miki Goldwasser, the last 10 years since her son was killed in a cross-border Hezbollah raid that led to the Second Lebanon War have been a balancing act, finding a way to stay alive by moving forward.

“There’s a black hole in the middle of our lives and you live your life surrounding it. We have no desire to bury our heads underneath a blanket, we have two more children to take care of and we have to move forward,” Goldwasser told The Jerusalem Post last week, just ahead of the 10th anniversary of the war.
