Bereaved Families Don't Return to Same Reality


President Shim'on Peres opened Memorial Day observances, Sunday evening, by telling relatives of the country's fallen soldiers that in two days, Israel will return to its routine and so will the bereaved families, but it won't be the same reality because their loved ones won't be there. He said it will be different for their friends because they will be at a loss for words.

Peres said that while talking about the nation's and military's achievements in putting Israel's existence beyond doubt, Israel won't forget the fallen and the need to thank them for their sacrifice.
