Sunday evening

Am continuing to think, a great deal (as is true of so many others), about the terrible tragedy of San Bernardino--and the sickness, the cancer, that is terrorism.

Tonight is also the first night of Chanukah--and my very best wishes to everyone who is observing the holiday.  

Chanukah is of course also known as the Festival of Lights.  In my own home, I would like to think that the lights of Chanukah, set on a table at the kitchen window, can--in addition to their traditional meanings--serve as at least one symbolic counterpoint to the darkness of terror.
