Yesterday, when "Binyamin's" teacher Rav Yair sat me down and told me the gruesome details of this young cadet's story, I felt two tears: one of sorrow for what he endured and one of joy for his newfound strength.

"I have no doubt," said Rav Yair, "that Binyamin will reach great heights in the IDF and be a role model and leader for wayward youth in the future. He's changing by the day... it's happening in front of our eyes."
