From a letter written by Nadav from Lebanon, two months before his fall: “Reflecting on a thousand and one issues, I looked around and absentmindedly counted the number of people left from the original staff of March 1995, and to my amazement I discovered that we were only seven. A person is full of people, memories and experiences, and when a person is taken from him, he becomes emptier inside, and the more empty he is, the more he hits him and the echoes he makes are bigger, but the more time passes, the more the person is filled with new people and experiences News, the noise becomes more and more dull until it disappears A.
