It Only Took a Day…

It only took a day to make myself stay awake on a sherut at 1am, just in case something comes at us.

It only took a day for me to start counting sirens and then checking to see how many were injured and killed and where it happened.

It only took a day for me to think twice before going out of the house, even though it is the middle of the day.

It only took a day for me to realize that I am holding my breath, and I need to remember to breath.

It only took a day for me to be over-aware of what is going on around me.

It only took a day for me to notice the quiet in the streets and the intensity of the atmosphere around me.

It only took a day for me to worry about a 10 minute walk from my apartment. Am I going to be hurt? Am I going to see someone else get hurt?

It only took a day for me to feel this way. How are they people who have been going through this for the past few weeks feeling?

I'm not always the greatest at sharing what is in my head. Here is a place that I am experimenting with sharing my ideas and thoughts. They are about my life, my experiences in becoming a rabbi, things that I see going on around me, and sometimes words of Torah.
