Redefining Normal

A Soldier's Mother


A few years ago, I wrote a blog post called, “Defining Normal” – this is the post in which I explained what happened when David was born – and how they handed me a tent. One of the things that I like about this blog is that I can dump my memories here and let them go. I read the post tonight while looking for the map (displayed here and also in that post).

It’s a map of how much time we have – all of us in Israel, to get to shelter. We are in the longest zone – we would have three minutes if an attack came from Lebanon. Three minutes to get to shelter – and worry about where everyone else is and if they got to shelter in time. That’s if the missiles come from Lebanon. I don’t know how much time we’d have if the attack came from Syria or Iran…more, less, who knows.
