Our Tears Showed That We Cared

Today was our third day and we started off with a song
Little did we know that the day would be so long
We had museums, lectures, and Yad Vashem planned
But with President Biden in town, sadly, we were banned

Our first stop of the day was the Israel Museum for scrolls from the sea
We learned the history of Jerusalem and how Jews came to be
From there, our day took an unexpected turn With Biden in town,
no Yad Vashem we would learn

So it was off to Ben Yehuda for shopping and lunch
Then soldiers we would meet, what an incredible bunch
Our next order of business was a walking tour through the Old City
With amazing views of the golden dome that left us feeling giddy

Power of Prayer was the last chat of the day
With an emotional lecture to send us on our way
Pensive in thought we walked in silence to pray by the Wall
Each with our own prayers that this experience would call

We celebrated each other for all that we shared
What an emotional experience, our tears showed that we cared
Our third day on Momentum was exhausting for sure
Yet we left the Kotel knowing all we can endure
