A Timeless Moment and a BFL Music Video

A Timeless Moment and a BFL Music Video

Dear friends,

Last week we hosted the largest event in Israel specifically focused honoring injured Israeli combat soldiers and their wives.

The highlight of the event by far was the moment we called up three of the most injured soldiers in the past years to light the Menorah.  I have shared before that when we are with them, we all feel humbled in their presence. They and their families are the true heroes of Israel.  The rest of us sit quietly in the long shadow of the courage they show every day.

These soldiers as they came to the front of the room with their families, 1,000 people stood and did not stop clapping for them.

What an honor it was for all of us.

At this great evening we showed the first BFL music video written and sung by our members, and entitled “Until That Night”.

The translation is below and the YouTube clip showcases specifically a number of our soldier led sports programs that serve as a vehicle for our members go beyond what they thought were limitations presented by their injures and to mentor each other as well.   Please enjoy!

Until that night everything was

incidental

fleeting

Until that night everything was
Vague

 

You appeared

And gave back to me

The courage to stir my wings

You appeared

And I was drawn

To forge my path, to choose life.

You appeared

And reminded me

That fear is only conquered together
You appeared

And lifted me

To soar with you to the heavens

 

You appeared, and my heart trembled

And you just smiled

Like a windstorm you have swept

Deep into my heart

 

You appeared

I am no longer alone

Even in silence our eyes converse

You appeared

And gave me hope

To stop time, just for a moment

You appeared

And carried me

To a different place, on your back and wings

Now strong

My voice calls out

It’s ok to dream, not live on the sidelines

 

You appeared, and the world trembled

And you just smiled

Like drops of hope you have trickled

Into my soul

Unconditional love

 

Until that night everything was

Incidental, fleeting

Until that night everything was

Vague

You appeared

And made the wasteland bloom

In a desert thirsty

for water’s sweetness.

 

Shabbat Shalom from Israel,

Arale
