This week, life is feeling normal. There is an average of 15 new cases of coronavirus daily. 1-2 dealths a day. The numbers are decreasing on all fronts Corona-wise and we are suffering from a massive heat wave. It’s always something!
Stores opened up and we went to Beer Sheva. Boy, what an adventure! The outdoor shopping center was quite full. People were lined up on the sidewalks, waiting in groups due to the limited number of customers permitted inside stores at one time. These are the new rules. Security guards took our temperature at each store entrance, and reminded us to keep our masks on. There was hand sanitizer at some store entrances. It wasn’t too strange. People seemed to be in good spirits. It was a positive experience. Israel is amazing.
We go here from one hardship to another. Mourn and recover. Then trudge on ahead, standing tall. That’s Israel. Last week, a horrible tragedy occurred….during a military operation in the Shomron, an arab dropped a rock on one of our soldiers, and killed him. The soldiers was 21 and his father’s only child. The whole nation mourned. And just like that, we are back in the thick of it.
The Corona crisis made us feel like a regular nation. We faced a common enemy with the rest of the world. And with Israeli discipline and energy, we beat it.
But, quickly we are once again facing our own unique problems, our own unique enemy.
As we are slowly getting back to work and our children return to school, our rescuers are once again being called regularly for the “peacetime” problems; car accidents, heart failure, and terror attacks. No rest for the weary.
