Yael Deckelbaum: Here is a message of peace from my friend Michal Halev, the mother of La'or Avramov who was murdered last week. I share this with you and stand behind her.
Message from Michal Halev that goes with the above video:
“My name is Michal Halev. My son La’or was murdered last week by Hamas terrorists. I made this appeal for love and healing instead of vengeance because I don’t want other mothers to experience the unbearable pain I’m going through. Please help people the world over hear my anguish, and maybe seeds of peace can be planted in the fields of battle and hatred.”
CLN Editor Note: Please help stop the cycle of war and vengeance by sharing this video.
My name is Michal. I am the mother of La'or, who was murdered by Hamas. He was 20 years old. I am begging the world to stop all the wars, stop killing people, stop killing babies. War is not the answer. War is not how you fix things. This country, Israel, is going through horror, and I know my other country, America, is going through horror, and I know the mothers in Gaza are going through horror, and I know that people in Ukraine and in all the world are going through their own horrors. Do anything you can. The whole world, unite to heal those children so that they won't grow up to be haters, that they grow up to be lovers, gentle lovers like my gentle giant. And that they will have a life, that they will grow up and fulfill their dreams, and marry the girl they loved. I've been broken now for a few days, and I will remain broken for the rest of my life. But I managed to catch one breath, and I want to use it to talk to the world because I hear voices of people wanting vengeance and of people wanting to go kill the monsters. And I want to say that in my name, I want no vengeance.
