This past Wednesday night, 6 rockets were launched from Gaza into Israel. Their target: Ashkelon. Yesterday, the city-wide Code Red siren blared again, warning of another possible attack. Miraculously, we had a scheduled delivery of two Lifeshield shelters yesterday morning. Emotions ran high as everyone we met shared their heartfelt gratitude. I drove around Ashkelon with the Security Chief of the city in his truck, and received an invaluable perspective of the moment-by-moment crisis management he commands. Awesome stuff! It's amazing how much goes on to protect citizens on a daily basis - and especially when rockets are being shot at you.
Thank you for being part of this campaign. Thank you for saving lives.
Here's the video of my visit to Ashkelon yesterday
