The official memorial for those fallen in
the Yom Kippur War 40 years ago
is being broadcast live on the radio.
This photo was taken at a private ceremony,
the young man was speaking in honor of his grandfather.
I think it is fitting image to remember those fallen during the Yom Kippur War
even though the grandfather was not directly involved.
Also, on this 20th anniversary of Oslo Accord
to remember how many of Israel’s best have died.
But, there is little time for sadness,
Sukkot is coming.
All around Jerusalem, Israel, preparations have begun.
Look up on balconies,
around in backyards,
in front gardens,
and on top of cars;
there are signs of the Sukkot holiday.
After Yom Kippur,
it is a busy time getting ready for more holidays.
Schools are out,
a good time for grandparents to give a helping hand.
