yom hashoah today . so i have my reservations about this day. that said. at 10am i was in our j'lem apartment having a heated discussion with the kablan (fixer guy). the siren went off, he said to the guy on the phone 'talk to you later, siren', closed his phone, folded his hands and stood silent for the duration of the siren. and everything around us also went still. a moment to reflect and think about who survived and who does not, who survives and who does not.
