I have been very fortunate, Bizrat Hashem, to have never lost any friends or family in the IDF as a result of war. But I mourn for each we lose. When we lose one, we lose an entire world.
With HaShem's providence, may we never lose another.
A song of ascent.I will raise my eyes upon the mountains;
Whence will come my help.
My help is from Hashem;
Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to falter;
Your Guardian will not slumber.
Behold he neither slumbers nor sleeps -- the Guardian of Israel.
Hashem is your Guardian;
Hashem is your shade at your right hand.
By day the sun will not harm you,
Nor the moon by night.
Hashem will protect you from every evil;
He will guard your soul.
Hashem will guard your going out and your coming in.
From this time and forever.
