My children go to school behind fences, with an armed guard at the gates.
What would I say to this news agency? This is my home - we have made the desert bloom, as we were promised.
What we understood in Ma'alot, we cannot comprehend in this tragedy. In Newton, we are lost.
Why is the world obsessed with what isn't there and, even if it were, would do no harm.
