Gilad Schalit will die one day, yes, but we are all hoping the price we pay to save his life now will not cost our sons and daughters lives. It is very easy to say save Schalit without thinking of the consequences for other mothers and fathers, other sons and daughters. How we die is determined by what??? We understand the pain of the father and mother and would do exactly the same if he was our son but distance does get us some perspective that the emotions of parenthood in this situation encloud. We hope we are never them, and we hope that our daughters and sons do not pay the price of Schalit's freedom. In the end we are asking how many lives are worth one life? How much do we pay? And even as we think this we know we would do the exact same as Gilad's parents if he was our son. It is a dilemma.
