Rabin anniversary

My god, has it really been ten years already since Yitzhak Rabin was killed? I remember the sense of horror and disbelief as we watched the evening news, and the dread that no one really wanted to voice, of 'what happens now'... I can only imagine what it must have been like in Israel at that time. And yet, I seem to remember an offbeat news piece a few months later, about a Palestinian family who had just named their newborn son "Rabin" in honour of the man himself, as a symbol of peace and hope. I wonder where that boy is now.
