For some people the word safety may bring back memories of childhood when someone would call out "safety" before they passed gas. This time I'm really using the word to talk the real meaning in reference to my experience tonight. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I have not yet started exercising. Tonight I decided that enough was enough. All the kids were asleep except Yeshaya. I put him in the jogger stroller and started on my speed walk. I didn't think anything of it at first but as I was a few minutes into my walk I realized that it was 8:45 pm and I was out on my own walking in the dark. I would never have dreamed of doing that in Baltimore. It just is not safe for a woman to go waking after dark on her own. It was was an eye opening experience for me. Back in Baltimore I would never have thought that I'd feel safer in Israel. With all the talks of war, the terrorist attacks etc. I thought that I'd be terrified to move out of my house but truthfully I have not thought about it until tonight. I am truly amazed.

I've always felt safer in Israel than anywhere else.
