A journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had 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 walking slowly up to the Holy site. She watched him pray for about 45 minutes. When he turned to leave she approached him for an interview.

"I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. Sir, how long have you been coming to the Wailing Wall and praying?" "For about 60 years," he answered. "60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the hatred to stop, and I pray that all our children should grow up in safety and friendship." How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?" "Like I'm talking to a fucking wall."
