I wish that I had written any of these posts myself, about women winemakers in Israel but alas I have not met any yet in my wine travels. I wanted to write about Israel today because it is the 21st anniversary of Rabin’s murder. I remember that day perfectly. I had just moved back to Florence after a year in school in Washington, DC. I remember thinking there will never be peace after that event and sadly there has not been yet. As the US election will be held next week, I am just hoping that people on all sides of the aisle will remember that we are one country and that we do not harm our leaders. No good came to Israel after Rabin’s death and nothing good will come to the US if violence comes from our election. I am hoping peace will prevail and blessings be on all houses.
