I know I am overreacting by even being a little nervous. Nothing ever happens in Beit shemesh. We are well out of range of anything going on in and around Gaza.
Being worried for those involved is one thing. I am. When I heard the IAF went in to Gaza this morning I felt my heart leap into my throat. It is so funny how attached you can feel to a place you have never been and to people you have never met.
We added our information to a list of families willing to take evacuees if need be. At least here I can do that much.
