Somewhere on A1A...

This week, most of us will celebrate our Country's Independence. This year the celebrations will be a little restrained. The Patriotism of the day will remind us of the events of 9/11 and of the people we knew who died in the attacks. Some will attend celebrations with a wary eye because of the threat of further attacks, some will ignore the threat altogether and others will stay at home waiting for the bad news. The news is full of vague warnings and we will all handle it differently.

In Israel, these same fears are present everywhere, every day. As I celebrate, my thoughts and prayers will be with them too. Especially, I will be thinking of the hundreds of victims of the terror and their families; terror we can only imagine. Here is a A Tale of Two Families, the Franklins and the Nechmads, two groups of victims..... Please remember them too.
