Condolences for Haim Watzman

Niot Watzman, son of the co-author of the South Jerusalem Blog Haim Watzman, has been killed in an accident. He was 20. Haim recently blogged about a friend who lost a daughter and wrote a meaningful book about the loss and life thereafter. Haim has already written two books and translated many more; maybe he'll someday be able to craft one out of this horror, unimaginable as the thought must be today.

"If there's one thing that even slightly consoles me", he told me this morning, "it's that Niot was a happy person. He enjoyed his life".

In Haim's book, he describes how Niot went to a friend's house in Gilo for a sleepover even while it was being shot at from Beit Jala. What a terrible thing to happen to such a brave and compassionate family. Baruch dayan emes.
