An Unsealed Room

Junk Food For the Troops

I packed a box with the kids today – it was in response to a letter that was sent to both of their classes. One of the families at the school has a member in a Golani unit, and has the opportunity to pass them care packages. We were told that they are living on combat rations and would like cookies, candy, chips and other munchies to sustain them during their long hours of waiting on the border to go into Gaza.

So we bought them their goodies, and my kids put letters in the box for the soldiers. My ten-year-old daughter wrote:

Dear Soldiers!

I home you succeed in the war against Hamas and succeed in bringing peace to the country. I watch the news and think about how good it would be if there weren’t any wars.

Good luck!
