I am writing this from Zambia. It is a world away from Israel; from the music and programs and articles that knit Israelis together on this day. Yom Hazikaron 2015, the day of remembrance for Israel's soldiers and victims of terror. It is a day that gives all of us who were born, raised and educated in Israel pause for thought on the human price we have paid for returning to our homeland; a terrible price. And our chronicle is still written in blood; our enemies still exact a terrible price.
