I told Koala he could come with me to the Yom HaZicaron ceremony if he likes. I told him it’s a time where we remember all the soldiers and all the good things they do for us.
“And if you want, during the siren, you can think about your uncle who is a chayal, or zayde who was a long time ago.”
“I want to think about them and all the chayalim.”
After the siren, I asked him if he had thought about the chayalim. He told me he forgot, he was “thinking about other things.”
That’s ok. He’s four.
Here’s to innocence.
