Today is two years from the day that Gilad Shalit was kidnapped by Hamas on the Israeli border during non-war time.
There will be a rally held outside the Prime Minister’s residence in Kikar Paris in Jerusalem, from 7-9pm.
All day I’ve been reading Facebook status updates and Twitter messages from people who are waiting for Gilad Shalit, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev to be returned home.
Without the efforts from the boys’ families and citizen protests, I’m fairly sure the Israeli government would not have this on the forefront of the agenda. I know it’s difficult to balance these individual lives with the rest of the government’s duties, but someone has to remember, someone has to persist.
Because God-knows these soldiers – dead or alive – are in no power to right now.
