In the priestly blessing of Numbers 6 we pray: The Lord make his face to shine upon you (Num 6:25). According to, Rashi, a Jewish medieval biblical commentator, God will suppress His anger by “looking at you”. Are we ready to look at each other? Or keep escalating the violence and hate amongst us by avoiding looking at each other? Thus, paving the way for us to be excellent victims of arrogance, revenge, indifference, pride and senseless anger? Do we realise that by looking at each other we deliver ourselves from number one silent killer: anger?
