I am bowled over by this story, having just recently returned from my 4th trip to Israel, where we visited the Gaza area and saw those wadis that so quickly fill with water when the rains come. I would love to read some of your Dad's other reflections on his visit to Israel, or anything else he has written for that matter. I'll bet he is as proud of you as you are of him. Happy Father's Day to your very special Dad!

BTW, they no longer have young children living apart from their parents on kibbutzim in Israel. It was just too difficult emotionally for families to be separated like that.

What an incredibly sad but moving story. So well written - I felt as if I was there. There are so many tragic stories of Israeli adults and children whose lives are cut short by suicide bombers and rockets, but Israel is just like any other country and has its share of non-terrorist tragedies like this one.

I'm Barbara's husband and like Barbara have visited Israel 4 times - the first in 1978. It is an amazingly vibrant and beautiful place with history and the Bible around every corner and in every spade of dirt. I highly recommend a visit if you ever get the chance.

Please extend a happy father's day to your dad.

Thanks for reading it and the wonderful comments! I'm glad it struck home with you. It is a vast improvement that young children no longer live in separate quarters from their parents.

I think my dad is very talented and I do have others he's written that I'll e-mail you. I wish he'd write more! He has been my inspiration to write what I do.

Thanks for your Father's Day wishes! He'll read this tomorrow!


Kate:

Thanks so much! I'm glad you visited and got to read this special touching story.

David: Wow! Thanks! I'm glad you were moved by this story ...I guess he accomplished his job as a writer; to make the reader feel the same way he does about this topic. You both are so lucky to have visited Israel! I remember being so impressed with his slides. He learned a great deal by going over there.

He'll love reading these comments!
