B"H

I realize that it has been some time since I have written- but I have not had time to sit except at meetings with security, rescue, the IDF, and MDA.  In between the personal experiences of my family and friends under  constant rocket fire, our sons hopefully returning home safely from the military and trying to be a good wife to my amazing husband Ami.

The pain of remembering the traitorous expulsion from Gush Katif, amongst the demonstrations calling to take our soldiers out of Gaza is a personal nightmare not only the destruction, the pain of our families, the removal of our loved ones from their graves in the Gush, the horror of all of this added to the fact that our sons have fought time and time again in Gaza since then,- been wounded and fallen and for what????

One of my sons was called up the Shabbat of the expulsion and has fought there three times already! Our prayers for each of our soldiers to be allowed to defeat our enemies and return safely home amen.

I also wish to share something personal with everyone.  When one of our daughters explained to her small sons why we must enter the "safe area" or shelter she said,"there are angry people who are shooting rockets at us " .  Our almost five year old grandson answered, "Ima don't worry HaShem will protect us and we have strong soldiers and policemen."

May HaShem grant us true leadership that protects HIS NAME our Torah our Land and people and shows the world that there is a L_RD in Israel and may we be deserving to be messengers in HIS name. amen
