Those of us who live in the center of the Israel have got only the mildest taste of what our brothers and sisters on the Gaza border have endured for more than a decade. Here are a few short thoughts on “life” as lived in the southern city of Sderot over the last 10 years.

Sing along with the proud Israeli soldiers! "I live from day to day, am not going anywhere. For four thousand years this country has been mine, the clock keeps ticking. tomorrow will still come. But the song remains the same: We have NO OTHER LAND!"
In light of the recent barrage of rockets, we wanted to share again this collection of reflections by those living under terror and the concern of those around the world.

The day began with a Moment of Silence for the young boys murdered in Israel, and for all victims of terrorism.
