Positively Beautiful♥

Beautiful song "Chayalainu" and the voice is Excellent. But made me cry all the way through seeing all those precious young men whose lives were taken. My heart breaks with deep sorrow for all of them. Sending prayers for their families, their comrades and all of Israel.
May Hashem bless all the past, present, and future members of the IDF, and their families. Israel is and always has been "the Light among the nations".. Baruch HaShem! ♥Am Yisrael Chai... Forever!

Absolutely beautiful

This video brought me to tears. None of those young men wanted to fight, to kill, or to die. They just wanted to protect their country, their homes and their families. May G'd bless them for the ultimate sacrifice they made, and may Israel continue to be a "light among the nations". Am Yisrael Chai.

Their ultimate sacrifice for the Jewish people everywhere

I cannot help but cry during this video watching not only the faces of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, but seeing the conditions underwhich they fought. My heart and deepest sympathies go out not only to their families, but all of Israel. One place of one of our dead heroes stood out for me. It turns out his parents are close neighbors of my best friend in Israel. I also applaud those "lone soldiers" who found Hashem's mission in life for themselves and fought bravely. My husband a 25 year US Marine Recon veteran from Vietnam era is now 70 and would have enlisted in a heartbeat. My son did his service in the 1990s in the Israeli Navy Commando unit. So, I know how parents feel seeing their children go off to war. For those who gave the ulitmate sacrifice for the Jewish People, may their memories be for a blessing.
