"Have you ever woken up in the morning..." page:17
"We chose this passage becuse we felt like the boy. he wished he didnt have a school to go to he wanted to sleep more and more sometimes we feel this way, we want to stay home , sleep, watch t.v and not study.
Waiting for your comments
We are having some technical difficulties. We want to see if this reaches you.
How are you doing?
We got your letter and we think the same. We would also love to stay home, watch tv, and would most deffinatly love to sleep later. We are not sure of the page, but we also had a selection from the book that we liked. It was realy touching when Mr. Orlev's mother passed on in the hospital. Some things about this book are really cruel and others really touching. Just wondering, How do you feel about the war in Iraq?
Please right back soon!
We are looking foward to recieving your response!
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
