Yom Hazikaron

Memorial day.

Today we remember and honor all soldiers killed in the war, all young men and women who died for Israel's right to exist. When you watch the video and look at photos of fallen soldiers you find it hard to connect the faces of all these young people, plenty of life, to the European articles about the "barbarian" Israeli army. 65 soldiers, young students with their life in front od them died last year, just because some people don't want us to exist, don't want us to have this little piece of land.
Let us hope they didn't die for nothing, let us hope that one day there will be peace.

Amen.

This is the hardest day of the year. I'm watching the programs about the dead soldiers. Young men and women that just had started their lives. And I can't stop the tears from falling down my face. At 8 o'clock we are supposed to change mode and start celebrating. Suddenly the TV channels are back broadcasting songs and happyness. We are going for the fire work shows at 9.
