An anniversary is typically a happy occasion with fond memories. This week, Kay observes an auspicious anniversary, one which she’s just grateful to be alive to experience, despite the many challenges that befell her in 2010. I suspect that she’d rather not have had the experience to be observing the anniversary to begin with, or her story being shared.
When you meet Kay today, immediately you see her zest for life, her passion and her boisterous, outgoing personality infusing everything she does. As you get to know Kay, you learn about and appreciate her wit and sense of humor. Going through what she went through, you almost have to have a sense of humor, and deep sense of faith. Yet, beneath the exterior that gives no sign of anything wrong, Kay is still scarred, physically and psychologically.
Kay is a licensed tour guide in Israel, the best of the best. She has knowledge of Israel that’s second only to her passion for Israel. In the fall of 2010, Kay was hosting Kristine, a Christian friend from the U.S., and they decided to go for a hike in the Judean Mountains. When Kay and Kristine met, she was struck by Kristine’s sincere desire to learn about Israel and its history. That’s how their relationship began, and how their lives would be forever intertwined.
On their hike they discovered two Palestinian Arab terrorists lurking in the woods. Actually, the Arab terrorists discovered them. The terrorists were not there by coincidence. Their presence and subsequent actions were premeditated as they lurked in prey for people exactly like Kay and Kristine. Provoked only by their hatred, and “aided” by carrying huge machetes, the terrorists bound, gagged, attacked and stabbed both women numerous times. Kay was sure her life was over. She prayed that it be quick.
Kristine, a devout Christian, fought with her attacker while screaming for help, and was gravely wounded. She called out to God as the godless men stabbed her repeatedly. Kay was bound, gagged and stabbed 13 times. One wound missed her heart by only 4 millimeters. She tried to lie motionless, playing dead if in fact not thinking that she was already dead, to make the terrorists stop their butchery, or maybe with the faint hope that she would not die, despite thinking that she was already dying. Kay was helpless to the cries of the attack that Kristine was enduring nearby.
