Daughter #2 told me that in one of her classes today (Social Studies) the teacher asked if anyone knew what today was. One kid volunteered that it was "Yom.. something," but that was about it (except for Daughter #2, who knew).
Daughter #3 had an assembly today.... devoted to the topic of shemiras halashon.
My son came home from yeshiva and also had no idea what today was -- "Why didn't you tell me?"
Im eskacheich Yerushalayim...! Should I be disappointed in what I'm getting for my thousands of dollars of tuition? Is learning about one of the most significant events in Jewish history in the past 50 years something that is important only if you go to a certain type of yeshiva but not a different type? Is Yerushalayim -- its history, its meaning, its recapture -- something we take so for granted that we don't need to speak about it anymore?
We all know Hashem works midah k'neged midah. Do you need to be an oracle to see a connection between our lukewarm response to Yom Yerushalayim and the plans of the EU, Obama, and others to turn back the clock to before 1967?
When will our nation wake up???
