“I love you – I’m Sorry”

In her address to the world, brave mother Rachel Goldberg recounts some of the last known events in her son, Hersh Goldberg-Polin’s life. A day like any other, her son said goodbye to her before meeting a close friend to unwind and celebrate at a music festival dedicated to unity and love. 

The last communication Rachel would ever have with her son Hersh would be the two brief texts he sent her before his abduction – “I love you,” and “I’m sorry.” 

Shortly after, Hamas terrorists would breach the shelter he was hiding at. Immediately, their grenades cut the lives of many festival-goers short. Hersh’s own left arm had been blown off at the elbow – still, even this did not dissuade the terrorists, who kidnapped him and currently have him imprisoned in unknown condition somewhere in Gaza.

Rachel’s pleas for help for these hostages and information concerning their whereabouts have gone unanswered. As a mother, she would do anything to see her son home safe again – as would the many families suffering in a similar way. Will you help carry Rachel’s message and speak up for those who have been silenced?
