Two girls--hand in hand. 
Their experiences spanning over 90 years.
One a Catholic, one a Jew.
One a teenager, one a great-grandmother.
Both with a sweet spirit
With eyes that glistened with
Humanity and love,
But also with fun and mischief.
  
This simple gesture...
This taking of a hand.
As Rebecca grinned and said,
"I can move a little faster if someone will give me a hand."
And the young girl answered,
"I've got you."
 
That gesture, that moment
That is what the truth is...
Two girls from very different worlds
Hand in hand,
Experiences spanning over 90 years.
Where once there was hatred
and division and the other...
Now there is a bond.
Their stories are forever linked
By a smile, by a hand, by a simple,
"I've got you.”
