Face to face with David Ben-Gurion

.

Today I was down at the Midrasha and Kibbutz Sde Boker, where David Ben-Gurion lived.
I'm glad I immigrated to Israel in time to hear one of his last lectures before he died in 1973.


While standing near the big stone I was surprised to find the tempered glass sign ringed with little portraits of Ben-Gurion.
While looking now at the photo on my computer, I'm surprised to find my reflection.
Just in time for James' Weekend Reflections.

In the 1950s and 60s, Ben Gurion had been seen as the greatest man on the planet. Most politicians fade over time, but even after he died, Ben Gurion's reputation stayed intact.
