I am not alone when I say that this summer was not really a summer. Many of us are still waiting for summer to begin, but that might not happen due to the predicted polar vortex about to hit our region in mid-September. I hope I heard wrong.
Summer is usually synonymous with relaxing, vacationing, reading in a leisurely fashion, and that didn’t seem to occur. We were thrown into a daze with the tragic murder of our three boys, Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Frankel and Gilad Shaar. We were thrown into war, where our eyes and ears were glued to screen and radio making sure we knew what was happening to our brothers and sisters in Israel. This in a way is a forgetful summer because many may feel like it never happened.
