Pretending

Most of the time i have only the headlines for my posts. This is the headline that came to my mind few days ago and i did not know where to take it from there.
It came to my head while i was with my grandchildren and heard that the Iron dome spread above our heads again, knowing that i have only 45 seconds to find a shelter with 3 kids (6.5.3), i thought may be my next post will be about pretending, Pretending to live a normal life "sans crainte", without fear,
Than the rockets hit the north part of our country and i was relieved as if it happened in some other country, far away.

  1. I hope that you will find peace soon, Yael. It must be so stressful worrying about your grandchildren.

  4. I cannot imagine what it must be like living with that sort of threat, a constant fear for yourself and your loved ones.

  5. I don't know what to say. How can I know what to say? Except that I like to hear from you and what you are doing with the grandchildren and what you are doing at home on your own sometimes. I am sorry but words seems a bit feeble. Keep safe.x

  7. I keep hoping that these idiot people who fire rockets will one day see the stupidity of what they're doing, but I may have to wait a long time. Stay safe.

  9. I am constantly amazed that war goes on somewhere in the world all the time. You have a good outlook on life Yael ... and I have a feeling in the back of my mind that if we pretend enough that pretence becomes our normal ... and keeps us sane.
    Stay safe, and the little ones as well.

  13. Israeli's are survivors. It may be stressful, but you folks seem to get by, day by day. Maybe, like the British during the Blitz, these times bring out the best in Israel. I know the sabra officers I met at Quantico were determined men.

  18. Re some recent comments elsewhere. Some people will always take a 'left wing' fashionable view of the Israeli/Palestinian problems, but they are people who just follow a prejudiced viewpoint. Of course there are wrongs on both sides, but Hamas has far more to answer to than Israel ever will. People will simply not believe about the hospitals etc, they just follow that well trodden anti-Semitic road. I'm afraid we will never convince them.

  26. Yael, I too had Mia More sending me comments she is gone now for good. I say 'she' with reservations because I believe that there is more than one person using that identity! Which means that "mia more" is a troll.
