Ready to Defend
November 17th, 2009
This is a response to the photo we posted of female Israeli soldiers on break.
I really enjoyed your latest email.
We really need to take a lesson from Israel. The photo shows a group of young ladies who appear to be taking a break at a local quick mart. Except for the weapons, this could be a scene in the USA. They each have a weapon over their shoulder, where in US it might be a purse or handbag. Just a relaxed group of co-workers and friends chatting about the days happenings and current events. The picture tells the story very well. If this were the US, the five ladies on the right could be getting themselves a cappuccino on the way to work, but what I noticed most was the young lady on the left. She has her backpack and casual sandals on and appears to be off duty and going home for the day, but they are ALL armed and trained to be prepared at any time to defend themselves if needed, while our own military bases must depend on civilians to protect them.
These are just common citizens of their country who, while having a regular life, know they must always be prepared to fight to maintain that life and their freedom. Keep up the great work you are doing, Dr. Piazza. May God continue to bless you in all that you do to keep us free.
