Yesterday was Yom HaZikaron – the day where Israel remembers the 22,684 fallen Israeli soldiers and victims of terrorism are remembered.  A solemn day of remembrance in Israel.  The below YouTube video is an excellent expression of the grief that is remembered by all Israelis on Yom HaZikaron

And today is Yom Ha’atzmaut!  Happy 62nd Birthday Israel!

I am reminded of two quotes by Golda Meir:

“Above all, this country is our own. Nobody has to get up in the morning and worry what his neighbors think of him. Being a Jew is no problem here.” (Meir, Golda, interview with International Herald Tribune, May 11, 1978, found at WikiQuotes

and

“Peace will come to the Middle East when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us.” (Meir, Golda, quoted in Media Bias and the Middle East, 2003, found at WikiQuotes)
