Love your neighbor as yourself…

Inspiration from Zion: This is a Love Story

Israelis argue, complain and criticize. A lot. Israelis are loud, nosey, opinionated and brutally honest. Being polite or diplomatic is not our strong suite.

Living in Israel is not easy. Our „neighborhood” is not nice – this current war with Hamas is just one example… In addition, Israelis themselves can be very difficult.

There is a bomb shelter but it is too far away. What do you do?  A missile can hit you. It could hit next to you fling shrapnel that pierces your body. How do you protect your child?

In the picture you can see a mother in a southern town of Israel, caught outside with no way of protecting her child. Covering the girl with her own body she waits for the explosion. Where will it hit? A direct hit will kill them both. If shrapnel flies maybe she will succeed in protecting her daughter. She might not live through it but, hopefully her daughter will.

This is the reality for thousands of…
