Yom Hazikaron
Today is Yom Hazikaron in Israel. Sirens sound and people once again stop and take a moment to remember Israel's fallen soldiers. This particular Remembrance Day has personal significance since the loss of Mulder's brother is still fresh; he was killed during his army service just 2 weeks ago (if you haven't yet, go to the blog Mulder made for his brother. see what has been lost and what is being remembered today). Now I have a greater understanding for what it is to lose someone to protect a country. The cost is high, but if it's not paid, the country does not continue to exist. There are few countries that must be vigilant against its enemy each and every day, each and every hour, like Israel needs to be.
