Mumbai Aftermath

The New York Times today ran a heart-wrenching photo of human pain in Mumbai.

Taken at a memorial service for Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, the Lubavitch emissaries who were murdered by Islamic terrorists, the photograph shows their orphaned son Moshe being comforted by a (presumably non-Jewish) Indian.  I cannot but see a cherubic child crying out to the heavens, a “globe” in his hand.
