"Are you Yids?"
We feel sorry for the boy because we can symapthize with him. We sometimes feel that as Jews people don't like us in the world so we can understand how he felt.
He was different and that's not a good feeling.
Hope to hear ffrrom you soon
Although we are not Jewish, we can understand how the boy felt. Because we live in a very cultural diverse community, we have all been targets of racial prejudice. Even when it is as simple as a joke from friends, it can be very insulting and make you feel bad. We believe that one's personality matters more.
Although we got to know each other through the book sharing project, we can't ignore what happened to the Columbia Space Shuttle. A tragedy that bonds us together. Therefore, we would like to share our feelings too.
We were strongly shocked when we first heard that the Columbia Space Shuttle suddenly lost contact with ground control and then learned that it blew up a few minutes before landing. All Israelis were so proud of finally having an Israeli astronaut out there in space. It gave us some moments of comfort and joy to know that "one of us" was taking part in such important and significant experiments in order to help and improve human kinds' lives. It also gave us an opprotunity to put aside all the terrible news we have here almost every day.
Those fine astronauts, who were carefully chosen, knew their mission was highly dangerous. Still, they put their lives at stake knowing their project was much more important.
We are all so devastated and in grief but we also hope that one day, very soon, another Israeli astronaut will join a group of American astronauts and finish - successfully - the mission of Columbia Space Shuttle.
Hoping for a better future,
your Israeli friends from Hadera
