This week we had the profoundly sad experience of visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau.  While the Jewish experience has been a constant part of our travels, there are no words or even pictures to express what each of us is feeling as result of this visit.   Suffice it to say, that being on the ground where so many Jews, Poles, and others were brutally killed is an experience none of us will forget.  We end today, as thankful as ever for all that is good in our lives and a bit more conscious of the pain and sorrow of others past and present.
