"How can we explain the pride of being an Israeli, to feel that OUR People have an unbelievable capacity for solidarity, to support, and to accompany others. We see solidarity for our soldiers, for the wounded, their families and the lone soldiers that are here serving in our country without family. We see it in the citizens that lost everything and are already receiving assistance from their neighbors. It is truly touching".
