Masada's Ledge


And as I walked away from the ledge that changed my perspective, with the rocks crunching under my feet I thought of Israel as not only as a tourist land but my land. I’d heard all the time, that is Israel is my home, but only now is that idea only just seeping through, making sense, bringing joy and fascination into my mind. Only now do I think of how where I am standing as I wrote this that the defenders of Masada, the 1000’s of Jewish slaves, my ancient family were standing here, experiencing what they saw. And as I type this, Reuven speaks the truth that I am now the defender of Masada, I am the one who can share the gruesome story of my people, and it is my job to make sure that the story is shared throughout generations, so my peoples story’s are given justice. - Kya
