Just this morning, terrible news from France. The murder of a father and his little children in front of a Jewish school in Toulouse. When such tragedies occur, our mere words are so meaningless. All we can do is pray, and pray really hard that Hashem will spare us from such horror in the future.

It has always been our position that our response to such things which have, unfortunately, occurred over the 32 years I have been on the air is to play something appropriate for such a tragedy. This I will do on the next broadcast.

May Hashem console the family and may He avenge the blood of His people which has been shed. May He spare us from further sorrow.
