Livet går sönder - drömmar slås sönder

Tuvia Yanai Weissman 21 år dödades igår i en terrorattack när två palestinska 14-åringar knivhögg honom till döds. Trots sin unga ålder var han gift och hade en dotter.

Off-duty IDF soldier killed in West Bank stabbing attack laid to rest in Jerusalem (Jerusalem Post)
"Your wife informed me yesterday that you all had been in a different aisle in the supermarket, you heard screams, and she bent over Neta and you disappeared. You couldn't listen to screaming and stand back, you were like that - you did not have a weapon because you were off-duty. You fought with your fists, your body, your whole heart," the rabbi recounted of a conversation with Weissman's wife."

Terror victim's wife at funeral: 'You didn’t have a gun but you ran toward the attackers'
“You are a true hero. You didn’t have a gun, but still you ran [toward the attackers] without thinking twice,” said Yael in a tear filled voice, as she stood by her husband’s freshly filled grave in the Mt. Herzl Military Cemetery.  “I always knew that if something happened you would be the first person to respond,” Yael said.

“Yesterday we went shopping so that when you returned to the army on Sunday you would know that Netta and I had everything we needed and that nothing was missing.  “You were always like that. Whenever you were with us during the weekends you did everything you were not able to do during the week when you were away,” Yael said.  At times, as she stood at the podium, she cried so hard it was difficult for her to speak, particularly as she recalled their last moments in the Sha’are Binyamin industrial park outside of Jerusalem, where Rami Levy is located.  “We came to the supermarket. We were together. You were worried the whole time about Netta and made sure she stayed close to me.   “Then in one moment, everything happened. We heard there had been a stabbing and even though you did not have any weapons on you, you ran to help without thinking twice.  “I waited for you to return to me and Netta, I waited for you to hug us and say that everything was fine and that you had succeeding in stopping the terrorists.  “We waited a long time and you did not return,” she said.  “People, who were as amazing as you were in thinking about others before themselves, helped me find you,” said Yael.   “I was not able to stop you and I am not sorry. If you had not raced there [to help], you would not be the Yanai that I know, the one I fell in love with.”

We had so many plans. To fly, to trek, to work, to study, and most important of all, to be together,” Yael said.  Her husband was so focused and directed in his short life, that it was almost as if some part of him already knew how little time he had, she said.  
 “I want to thank you for every moment that we were together,” she said.  “Thank you for the best present you could have given me, our daughter Netta. I couldn’t ask for something more perfect. I promise that Neta will know who you were and how much you loved her. We will never part from you. You will always be with me. Even if I am not with you physically, we will to be apart.”  
 “Give me the strength to look Neta in the eyes and tell her that everything will be fine. I promise to take care of her as best I can. I am sorry that we did not have a chance to realize our dreams. 
  “I love you and I already long for you,” Yael said."
