During my flight to Israel I asked myself, what do I expect out of this trip? At first it was hard to answer. Being from Miami, you feel like you've seen it all. However, as soon as I landed, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I am now in the HOLY LAND. The land that my ancestors hoped for prayed for and fought for!
The feeling goes beyond being personal. It is spiritual. Us Jews dreamt for this piece of land where there used nothing but desert! With our spiritual connection to our people we teamed up to make the best out of this land. Now, we lead the world with our ingenuity, we have one of the best Air Force, and our food is legendary.
I am looking forward to spending this trip with the new friends that I made and I know that it will be unforgettable. Can't wait for tomorrow to start experiencing the land!
