This iReport is part of an assignment:
New violence in Israel and West Bank
Thoughts on War and Peace in the Middle East while on a Six-Minute Walk
Warning: no exciting loud noises or action scenes… just little ole me talking to you.
I live in a kibbutz (a communal village) on the border with the Gaza Strip. Despite the fact that we are in the middle of Operation Protective Edge, my dogs still need their twice-daily walk. I turn on the camera in order to catch a red alert, and give you a sense of what it is like when the warning infuses a frightening, yet life-saving adrenaline rush. This morning it did not catch us on our walk, but I was in an especially pensive and talkative mood, and thought some of you might be interested in “accompanying” me virtually on my morning walk.
