Over 1,400 Israelis Were Murdered

Act Now!

I just wish this was a movie

I have to just let it out. I haven’t been able to close my eyes since Saturday morning at 6:30…

I just wish this was a movie

I have to just let it out.

I haven’t been able to close my eyes since Saturday morning at 6:30 in the morning.

I’m only now starting to process what I went through, what my family went through for 5 hours on that black Saturday. October 7th.

Horror!!

And I just wish this was a movie… If only.

My stomach is turning, my body is aching and weak.

After all those days that felt like an eternity, as if this war has been raging on for a year already…

I can’t put into words what I went through, what we went through until we escaped from there. I have tried to talk about it, but it’s nothing in comparison to what we actually went through. I’m trying to sleep now in a safe place in Israel, looking at my two small boys and not being able to process that they’re here next to me and we’re together.

It’s no longer something I can take for granted.

In my mind, I replay the horrific moments my sister and nephews went through with terrorists in their own home. And I was only 200 meters from them, unable to help in any way.

The most difficult moments of my life.

What a miracle, what a miracle we had.

I pray this trauma leaves me and them as fast as possible, mentally we are completely drained. I keep thinking of how many good innocent citizens we lost in our small regional council – Eshkol Regional Council.

How many heroes we lost. I can’t stop the tears.

I’m sending my support and strength to all the residents of the regional council who are fighting for their lives and sending a huge hug to everyone, stay strong.

And may the ever-growing list of names stop now, because we can’t take any more.
