A sacrifice that continues

Born from the ashes of the Holocaust in Europe, the Jewish nation of Israel declared its independence in 1948.  Those who have died defending it or whose lives have been taken in acts of terror need to be remembered and honored by Jewish people all over the world, not just those living in Israel.  Being that this blog revolves around a book that chronicles the lost souls at a time when there was no organized Jewish army, I feel nothing could be more appropriate than showing respect to those who lost their lives in the name of never allowing it to happen again.  Although this is a video taken a few years back, the air raid siren is what happens all over Israel in honor of those who were lost.
