Yom Hazikaron- the day of remembrance for Israel's fallen soldiers.
As a young American college student who is thinking about her personal goals and aspirations- I am so used to the idea of thinking of myself, for myself. However, the men and women that we honor today- many of them too young to die- put their lives and plans on hold because they had no other choice.
Honor. Respect. Gratitude.
Thank you for your service. It is because of you that “Am Yisroel Chai” can still be chanted.
And thank you to Israel’s current soldiers. Words cannot express the respect I have for you.
