Why Don't You Stay in the Bunker?

After leaving Eyal's apartment and heading back up to ours, Avinoam and I decided to check out the situation at our local bunker. The door was open and welcomed us in. We quietly walked down the stairs because we expected sleeping children. The thick air and bad smell already started from the top of the stairs.

I guess maybe that's why weren't so surprised to see that the bunker was completely empty.

The walls however, were covered with bright posters that the children who were here during the day had painted. People had made sure to keep them entertained with different activities and projects.

And yes, there are toilets in the bunkers -

and a kitchen.

But ultimately, Avinoam and I don't suspect the bad smell or the messy kitchen to be the reason why the bunker was empty tonight. We think it's because the bunker isn't home, and after three days of sitting in it, there's nothing like being in your own home. Even with missiles falling down on your city.

Protect the children.

Each time a child dies anywhere in the world because of conflicts beyond their control, we--all the adults of the world--wherever we live, have let them down. For they are the future of our earth and must be protected.

I am not Jewish, just a Canadian who prays for peace in the world.
