A hard week is over


The bad news: a bomb went off in a Tel Aviv bus today.
The good news: the bus was not crowded, the bomb was small, no one was killed.

The best news: a ceasefire went into effect at 9:00 pm tonight.
UPDATE:  I should clarify that "no one was killed" does not mean that no one on the bus was injured; more than 20  people were taken to the nearby hospital. 
Thursday night update: Police is now announcing that the suspects were caught within a few hours of the bombing.

I heard about the cease fire and thought of you. I hope it turns out to be meaningful.

I just heard the news about the cease fire. I know many local people have been praying for your city.

It's sad to have to say that the good news is no one was hurt...

Dina said...

Friends, thanks for your concern, prayers, and good wishes during the last week. Let's hope this ceasefire is taken seriously.

Clarification: I added an update because although no one was killed by the bus bomb, 21 people were injured. I should have said that from the beginning.

I hope the cease fire is successful. Keep safe.

I saw that on TV tonight, but they didn't say if anyone was killed. I'm glad everyone survived but horrified at the casualties. Please stay safe, Dina. I heard about the cease fire. I just hope it sticks.

Cloudia--Lincoln? Oh, I see now, it's a movie. duh
Now I read another thing I didn't know: Lincoln's early atheism--

Lincoln was nothing if not a pragmatist.

You and your family are in my thoughts... peace to all.
