As Israel begins to remember its fallen soldiers,
let us take a minute to remember some of the newly fallen
from Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.
They were not soldiers on a traditional battlefield as in days of old,
but a family sitting in their living room when
Hamas fired a rocket straight at them from Gaza.
The new front line of the war of terror against Israel – the family sofa in Kiryat Malakhi.
A family was destroyed.
A home ruined.
It seems all one can do in such a place is to sadly recite a prayer
and wonder how does one deal with such a cowardly enemy,
who over and over again aims at innocents…
adding to the list of dead and creating new mourners
for another Yom Hazikaron.
