This is not meant to be a commentary on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
I am not taking sides (within in this thread.)
I simply wanted to pass on a video that shows Israel's 'Iron Dome' anti-missile defense system in action. This video was posted a few days ago on
I am not ever in favor of War, but I do believe (true) self-defense in common sense.
With that said, I wish every country had one of these systems. I wish the Palestinians had it too.
Not because it protects governments, but because it protects innocent life.
I'm tired of "civilians" being killed. (Civilians = another word for human beings: children, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, neighbors and
teachers and lovers and friends.)
I encourage everyone to say a prayer (or just send 'good thoughts') towards all of those involved in this conflict. I pray for the children who must
grow up in a world where sirens and bombs and gunshots and dead friends is commonplace. The stress and fear would be enough to make us all go mad.
