This morning, my brother passed away. Those of you who know me personally, or have been following this blog know that my brother Gilad has been battling cancer for the past three years. In accordance with Jewish custom, I won’t be listening to any music for the month of mourning.
I don’t know how often I will be updating in the next few weeks, but I do want you to do a few things for me. First of all, listen to these songs I’m posting. These are the songs that he and I have used to get through this difficult time. Secondly, please leave your thoughts in the comments or email them to me. Finally, please check out Gilad’s blog. I know he only posted a few times, but his posts are clever and well written – written as only a smart 19-year-old with cancer can possibly write.
So long for now, and I’ll be back soon.
Pearl Jam – Daughter/It’s Ok
