School Closings, But Not Because of Snow

I grew up in Upstate New York, and part of the ritual of waking up in the morning in the winter was listening to the radio and praying that there was enough snowfall the night before to cancel school.

This morning, as I woke up my own kids for school after the week long Chanukah vacation, I also heard a list of school closings.

This time, unfortunately, it was not because of something harmless.

The cities within rocket range, which is growing every day, are closing their schools so that the children don’t have to travel, and can stay near their safe rooms.

    balabusta – although everyone thinks that living in Judea and Samaria is dangerous, I am now in one of the safest places in Israel.

    Batya – you are right.
