Open Thread Sunday

[Inspired by this teshuva]

Why is it that we observe mourning customs for the death of R. Akiva’s students, but not for the Holocaust?

    We must not mourn. We must just rebuild. R’ Akiva’s and his students died for a cause. The 6 million perished for reason of pure hatred. We won’t let them get to us. We must prove that we remember and as a result are stronger and will never be destroyed.
