Maayan Ariel and I were playing together in the courtyard when she asked me about the flag flying outside our home.
“It means we’re proud of our country, proud to be Americans.”
“I’m proud too,” she said with solid conviction.
“A proud American girl.”
“Take a picture, Saba.” (Hebrew: grandfather)
Karen and I and Maayan Ariel wish all our friends and relatives a lovely and patriotic Shabbat.
