A Mother’s Plea
I have been thinking about a new blog for a while. Looking for inspiration around me… I have been working long hours, been exhausted, and have been sick. Then I came across this blog, this plea. This woman’s daughter moved to Israel at 15 because she felt so passionate about living in her spiritual homeland. She left her family at a young age with little Hebrew knowledge to live in a foreign country. She then served in the Israeli army as a Lone Soldier (meaning she had no family in the country she was willing to die for). She chose to be in a tough combat unit.
Then tragedy struck. She was hit by a car a developed a horrible disease called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. So clearly, her mother needs to go to Israel to be with her daughter. Unfortunately, her husband (the girl’s father) is unemployed and working on getting disability through the VA. This mother will lose at least two months pay, if not her job, to go and be with her suffering daughter. S0me of you may know this and some may not but plane tickets to Israel are currently sitting around $1400 round trip. That is just the flight alone. Not food when she is there or anything else. She has reluctantly brought her situation to the web and is asking for help.
This story really moved me. I have several friends serving as Lone Soldiers in Israel and my G-dbrothers have both served (one is currently serving) in the Israeli Army. No child should suffer without their mom if possible. So I ask you, please follow this link – Emergency Visit To Israel to read more about this situation and to donate. She is taking donation through PayPal and the link is just a little under the search box. $5, $15, $50, $500 everything helps.
