From Frida Ghitis; Pope Francis’ journey for peace, reconciliation

Sometimes I think I'm the one who has lost sight of things.  Amid all the chest thumping arising from the Palestinians and the moaning from the Israelis following Pope Francis' visit to Israel and the disputed territories, I thought the gist of the pope's visit was lost.

To my way of thinking, the pope did the best job he could  of accommodating the needs of Israelis and Palestinians.

At the Terror Victims Memorial I noticed that the pope put his hand on a plaque just a few feet from the one that contains the name Alisa Flatow.

Frida Ghitis' thoughtful article should be read.  Here's the link.

Well, that's what I think.
