This Really Brings It Home

I was translating news at work early yesterday morning when the item about the sniper attack on Kfar Darom and its tragic consequences came over the radio. Four IDF soldiers were lightly injured and an officer critically wounded in the subsequent “friendly fire” that occurred during two independent responses to the attack.

Israel is a small country. So I’m not surprised that someone I know knows him—in fact, gives him a ride every Sunday morning on his way to work.

No, I’m not surprised at all today. Just very, very sad.

Elroi ben Galia Gladys is the latest addition to my prayer list. May he have a speedy and full recovery.
