      Picture This... You ignore the upbeat?

      I've noticed something very strange about the reactions to what I blog here.  Readers only respond to the negative. I find that rather sad.  Personally, I get a real spiritual lift from the sight of these men dovening on the job.

      Shavua Tov U'Mevorach!!  And please doven for a Refuah Shleimah--Full and Speedy Recovery for P'nina bat Sofia Zlata

      This soldier on guard was praying to true "shomer--lo yishan, shomer Yisrael"  the "guard who never sleeps."  It was a very comforting sight on my way to the Dead Sea.  It was certainly a very sweet day.

      While our politicians worship evil, the People of Israel are good.

      Shabbat Shalom U'Mevorach!

      PS I love pictures like these, so if you have any, please send them for me to post.  Thanks
