Beyond Our Line of Vision

By Zalman Dovid Eagle

Dear Nosson,

I often think of your father's smile when I need a little inspiration to do what a true Chossid would do. When I was a bochur before you were born, he was like a father to me in many ways. Now I am inspired by your life and smile as well. Before my daughter Toby passed away nearly three years ago, she composed a song: "But did I ever know how much it meant to him, how much I was needed? In the war that he waged, he saw beyond our line of vision." And the song goes on. I don't need to tell you any of this, because the emes is not beyond your line of vision. When Toby died in an accident at around the same age as you, and even before her levaya, a shliach comforted me with this basic truth: we don't know how much your precious neshama and Tanya baal peh were needed to wage the Rebbe's battle of light over darkness. I pray that your family is comforted by this as well, and very soon Hashem will wipe away all of the tears and bring Moshiach. You left us some clues, didn't you? Jews everywhere will rejoice on your yahrzeit -- we have to. Not only because it's a yom tov, but because it's the command of a tzadik on the day of his Hilula I guess he saw beyond our line of vision.
