Taking a break in Jerusalem today from his attempt to broker a cease-fire between Hamas and Israel, Secretary of State John Kerry visited with the parents of Max Steinberg, a 24-year-old Los Angeles native and IDF soldier who was killed in action in Gaza.
According to the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, "Kerry entered and exited the room swiftly, surrounded by men in black and refusing to take any questions from press."
"How's your day?" Kerry asked as he sat down. "How's your day?" Evie [Steinberg's mother] asked back. "My day's going better than yours," he said.
