The first thing that came into my mind when I watched Joe's Tragedy/Comedy Collab. video was this close2heart story. And I couldn't think of anything more precise to reflect it than this profound picture of heartwarming laughter in this context:
The man in this picture is my bro-in-law and the kid is his daughter.
Nine years ago he lost his father, his young sister and his friend (his other sister's fiancé) at a horrifying suicide-bomber attack.
He was left with a grieving mother, a wounded sister a household to take-care of and a bottomless pit of pain.
When he met my sister and had his first child - it was like the sun rose again. That kid's being is the highlight of every day and of every thought. She has her late aunt's beautiful chick-dimple, and is the laughter back in this family's lives.
Her name is Doron, and its meaning: a gift.
Next to nothing
There I sit
Arms at my side
Everything is at the same height
No one is tall and no one's big
No one is extraordinarily...
