The Western Wall

There was an old man who without fail would pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem every day. He did this routinely over a period of 50 years.

At the same time, everyday, this man would pray at the sacred wall and when he was finished, he would quietly leave and he on his way.

One day, a journalist decided to approach this man and ask him what he was praying for for 50 years.

He approached the man and asked him, "Sir, what do you pray for that you keep coming back every day and you have been doing this for 50 years?"

The old man answered, "I pray that all the Jews, Muslims and Christians might simply just get along and not fight, and just be content that we all serve our God."

"Do you think your God hears you?" asked the reporter

"Yes." said the old man emphatically "I truly believe he hears me. However, this has not changed our situation in Jerusalem, and for 50 years I feel like I might as well be talking to a wall..."
