Today in Israel

Today, no rockets hit my country, no mortars were shot at my land. No buses exploded; no restaurant was bombed. No one was murdered simply for being an Israeli, a Jew.

In the morning, children got up, got dressed, went to school and ate lunch. They went home and played outside or inside - whatever they wanted. They rode their bicycles and went to the park. They didn't count seconds and hopefully never imagined hearing a siren.

We adults got up in the morning, got dressed, went to work. We had our meetings, answered our emails. We ate lunch at our desks, in the restaurants, in the cafeterias.

We drove home, took the bus, the train, bicycled, walked. We ate dinner, said good night to our children, and hopefully didn't imagine having to awaken them and rush them to a bomb shelter.

Today, no rockets hit my country.

Sometimes, that's as good as it gets.

LESSON TO MYSELF - Don't post things like this again - a short while ago, two mortars were fired at Israel from Syria. Sheesh!
