Sixty Years

In Jerusalem, a journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a long, long time. So, the reporter went to check it out. She went to the Wailing Wall and there was the old man, walking slowly up to the holy site. She watched him pray, and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a cane in a very slow fashion, she approached him for an interview. “I’m a reporter, and I’d like to ask how long you’ve been coming to the Wailing Wall and praying?” “For about 60 years,” says the old man. “Sixty years? That’s amazing! What do you pray for?” asked the reporter. “I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and friendship.” “How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?” asked the journalist. “Like I’m talking to a friggin’ wall.”
