Okay, so I'm sitting at my computer (where else?) the other day, and all of a sudden I see a man waving an Israeli flag in the reflection of the screen. At last, I thought, Theodore Herzl is visiting from the beyond to personally thank me for my Aliya. I turn around and see nothing. But there is that man and flag again on my screen. Maybe it's one of those optical illusions where you stare at a dot for a minute and then see jesus christ floating away. I turn around again only to see TWO men again, in a cherry-picker, putting an Israeli flag on the streetlight right outside my mirpeset (porch):
Guess what??? Modiin is getting ready to celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut!
This scene just made me so happy....Sure I know we have Pesach first, and then of course Yom HaShoah and Yom HaZikaron (Holocaust Remembrance Day and Memorial Day), but to see the country getting ready to celebrate our 60th birthday??? Well that just puts a huge grin on my face.
And there does our banner yet wave.....
