us who felt a need to be with them.
They hugged us and embraced us,
thereby giving more of themselves
than any of us had a right to expect.
While trying to be of comfort to
them, they displayed strength and
courage that we were able to draw
from as we waited for word that Zach
had been found.
The most difficult task ahead is that
of life back to "normal." For so many,
a "new normal" is now being estab-
lished. Where we can do nothing to
change this new normal, we can
change how we respond to it.
What a fitting tribute to Zach if rela-
tionships could be enhanced and
strengthened. If Zach's friends took a
moment to assess any behavior poten-
tially placing them in harm's way, then
Zach's life will carry special meaning as
they pursue future goals and objectives.
And in Zach's name, if we take as an
example the unselfish acts of chesed
(kindness) performed by strangers on
behalf of Zach and his family and
apply them in our daily lives, then
Zach's memory and legacy will forever
be a blessing. ❑

YOUR SLICE OF THE PTE IS WAITING FOR YOU

IT'S A GREAT TIME TO MAKE YOUR MOVE TO A RETIRE-
buildings. The autopsy revealed that
Jandoubi was wearing two pairs of
trousers and four pairs of under-
pants; the coroner said that is what
is worn by "Islamic militants going
into battle or on suicide missions."
Also, the chemical plant was pro-
cessing ammonium nitrate, a stable
chemical that requires a substantial
infusion of energy to explode.
Ignoring these signs, the French
authorities declared there was "no
shred of evidence" of the explosion
being a terrorist act and ruled it an
accident. They even prosecuted two
publications merely for calling
Jandoubi a "radical Islamist," mak-
ing them pay tens of thousands of
dollars in fines to Jandoubi's heirs, a
mosque and a Muslim organization
for their "defamation" of Jandoubi.
Work dispute, hate crime, road
rage, derangement, post-traumatic
stress, industrial accident ... these
expressions of denial obstruct effec-
tive counter-terrorism. The time has
come for governments to catch up
with the rest of us and call terrorism
by its rightful name. 111
