Yesterday I wrote a breezy post about my cute neighborhood and my Arabic class. Today, Israel killed an Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza and rockets have been fired into Israel. It’s amazing how fast things can change. Schools were closed in Tel Aviv and south. It is quiet near me, both because there has been no rocket fire near me and because many businesses were closed today. One of the bedrooms in my apartment is also a safe room so I’ll probably sleep in that room just in case. Praying for a cease fire.
