I stood on my patio and watched the sunset over Ashkelon. It was a beautiful sunset, orange and purple and red and blue. The kind of sunset that you almost sigh over, as the beauty of Hashem's creation takes your breath away. As I watched the sunset, I didn't know the very city I watched in the distance was under major missile attack. Tens of thousands of innocent civilians, Jews, mothers and children, fathers and sons, running for their very lives to safety.
You'll have to look far and wide to catch this on the news. Not a headline, not even a noticeable article. A civilian city of Jews being hit with 50 missiles & mortars isn't even news worthy anymore. (Perhaps that's because the government declared CALM yesterday?)
The current situation is ridiculous. Bombs are intentionally targeted on civilians, no one notices (and makes sure you don't either). Major natural disasters are occurring bi-monthly in the US. Fuel prices through the roof. Food prices through the roof. US economy moving from recession signs to possible depression signs. And all we hear about is politics.
Lulled to sleep and desensitized. Beware. You will be affected. Prepare.
