This is decades-bad.

It's bad. It's bad on so many levels. Personally, we are ok in our area. A given Israeli's frontline concerns depend on where exactly they are located.

Hi from a new chapter in an old story.

After a year and a half of emotional exhaustion, it's shocking and also not shocking to learn that it's possible to be even more deeply emotionally exhausted.
