A CNN reporter went to Israel to cover the fighting. She was looking for
something emotional and positive and of human interest.  Something like the
man in Sarajevo who risked his life to play the cello everyday in the town
square.

In Jerusalem, she heard about an old Jew who's been going to the Wailing
Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a long, long time.  So she went to
check it out.

She went to the Wailing Wall and there he was!  She watched him pray, and
after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, she approached him for an
interview.

"Rebecca Smith, CNN News.  Sir, how long have you been coming to the
Wailing Wall and praying?"

"For about 50 years."

"What do you pray for?"

"For peace between the Jews and the Arabs.  For all the hatred to stop.
For our children to grow up in safety and friendship."

"How do you feel after doing this for 50 years?"

"Like I'm talking to a fucking wall."
