Read aloud at the laying of 4 golden stolpersteine – stumbling stones cemented into the streets outside of the homes of murdered Jews – in Prenzlauerberg, Berlin on Dec 5th 2017

Salomon, Sabina, Julius and Ruth you have and will be missed. We stand here in testament to your life, affirming your existence by our own; and your love by ours.

May the freeing power of love expand within us and in our world during our lifetimes and the lifetimes of all beings. May this happen soon and without delay.

Let it be.

May the immense power of love open up our hearts now and in all moments of struggle so that we never succumb to cynicism, anger or terror.

Let it be.

May the transformational power residing in love flow freely into our world and transform everyone and everything in its path.

Let it be.

May the liberating power residing in love be amplified and unleashed by each of us as we become ever-more aware of it, ever more in awe of it, and ever more a channel for it by relinquishing fear and limitation.

Let it be.

May the joyful power of love bring jubilation and consolation beyond mere words and beyond our limited capacity to understand it.

Let it be.

May the awesome power of love bestow endless peace and harmony on us and on all children of this universe.

Let it be.

In honor of my grandfather, Eric Elliott, born Heinrich Isaak Rosenbaum, 12th July 1924. Died September 23rd 2018.
