Reasons to Love Israel #467

Today is Yom Hazikaron (Remembrance Day) in Israel, the day on which Israelis remember and pay respect to those who gave their lives for Israel, namely 22,437 soldiers and terror victims.

At 11AM this morning, a 2-minute siren wailed and Israelis stood silently and remembered the fallen. While I was on the other side of the globe this year, I can tell you it is an unbelievable experience and something I am so proud of as an Israeli.

To fathom what it is like to have a country stop for 2 minutes and pay respects to its fallen, here is a video taken this morning in a town in central Israel.
