Never Forget

I am joining with katemotaung.com for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

The prompt is:

Forget

Former Dachau Concentration Camp

Former Dachau Concentration Camp

G-d commands us to remember, to remember His goodness and what He has done for us. He asks us to remember. We must remember His faithfulness and lovingkindness in the difficulty and in the storms, in the trials and in the testings. We cannot forget that He is G-d and He is good.

Yesterday I visited former Dachau concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. Never Forget and Never Again are two of the most spoken exhortations related to the Holocaust. Humanity cannot forget what happened. Israel must not forget that G-d has not forgotten Israel. The G-d of Israel is still alive and His kindness is still towards His people, the people He called after Himself.

Never forget – we must never forget the atrocities that happened that we would never stand by silently. We must never stand in silence in the face of anti-Semitism and injustice. We must never forget G-d’s kindness towards us in drawing us near to Himself. We must remember He is the G-d of Israel and there is no other.
