“My nearest and dearest enemy.” – Henry IV, Part I

I chose this quote because it is actually spoken by the king to and of his son, the future Henry V.  Meaning, sometimes our closest friends, neighbors, and even relatives, can seem like our enemies – but they’re not.  The future Henry V redeemed himself (at least in Shakespeare’s plays) from a scapegrace to a decent king.  What seems like our enemy one day, may be our future the next.  Who knows what this latest Israeli-Palestinian conflict will bring, but I continue to hold out hope that something good can eventually be worked out…
