This Golden Oldie will appear on Yom Ha'Atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day. But I'm writing these words(and I picked the cartoon) at the end of Yom HaZikaron. As usual it has been a heavy, sad day... this year made even sadder by the remembrance of our recent war dead from the Second Lebanon War.All day today, our TV stations broadcast photos of the fallen and reminiscences by those who loved them. Today we were one quiet, grieving family holding one another and looking at our photos, into the eyes of those young people who were taken from us.Tonight we'll party, and tomorrow, April 24, when this posting goes up on the blog, we will be grilling and picnicking and being pushy and boisterous. If you want to see a cartoon about that... look at yesterday's cartoon.
