With a one-minute siren at 8:00 pm, Israel's Memorial Day for fallen soldiers and terror victims began tonight. The first ceremony was at the Western Wall.
Flowers and a small flag with black ribbon were placed on the graves of all the fallen soldiers by the Defense Ministry. Tomorrow there will be many ceremonies at the many military cemeteries.
It is the saddest of days, when we all feel a need to come together, to support one another in the loss of our 22,684 dead.
