|יזבור Yizkur REMEMBER|
On the stage of the Yom Zikaron Memorial Ceremony in Shiloh
Today is Israel's Memorial Day for Soldiers and Victims of Arab Terror. I really like the fact that Memorial Day and Independence days are connected, one after the other. I think it's a lesson for us to remember.
Of course one can't have children only talking of the dead, those killed in the Holocaust, which was last week's memorial day, and then today and last night's programs about those killed by our enemies. So it has become a custom for some of the older school children in my area to stand on the road and wave Israeli flags.
I took these photos yesterday at Givat Assaf, the junction to Beit El.
