Amo, I talk about you all day! I talk to the teens at CYN (Chabad Youth Network) all about what you're doing, I tell them about your rigorous training and the strength and phenomenal faith in G‑d you and your boys exemplify.

My mother-in-law related to me the following:

"I want to share with you an inspiring incident that comes to mind.

"When Avraham Meir was four years old, we took the family to the Rebbe to receive dollars for charity and blessings. The day was hot, the line was long, but we patiently and eagerly awaited our turn. When it finally came, we all filed by, fixated our gaze on the Rebbe and excitedly received our dollars.

"But our most vivid memory of that trip was from the day before, when my husband took the children to wait outside the Rebbe's room, as the Rebbe emerged for the afternoon prayers. With all the children clustered around, the Rebbe walked out of his room, and spotted Avraham Meir. Then, with a smile on his face, the Rebbe swung his arm in a grand gesture, to which Avraham Meir responded with a big grin.

"We never really understood what that was all about, but I would like to think that the Rebbe is swinging his arm with Amo right now in Gaza.

"May he, Levi, and all our brave boys return unharmed—and victorious!"
