Laugh or Cry? We Choose to Laugh

Israel has started its week-long emergency drill. It started at 11:00 a.m. with sirens. A few minutes ago, Israel's emergency services sent out a wire, "EXERCISE - EXERCISE - Earthquake in the north. 6.5 on the Richter scale - SIMULATION ONLY." Then, seconds ago, another update, "EXERCISE - EXERCISE - Second earthquake in the south 5.6 on the Richter scale - SIMULATION ONLY."

By the end of the week, we will have "practiced" a death toll of 7,000 people in a tiny country the size of New Jersey. You could laugh or cry...

Israel radio chooses to laugh - they just played, "I feel the earth move under my feet..."

I love this country.
