Batya Medad at Shiloh Musings:
Last week there was a call to "wear red" to identify with the Israeli residents in the south who are alerted by what's called a "red alert." I even lent a red shirt to a friend who normally doesn't wear the color, but she felt it necesary to do something, to show that she considers an attack on Israel's south by the Arab terroristists of Gaza to be an attack on the entire State of Israel.

Here in galut (exile/diaspora), whether or not you don the color red, I urge you to see how far you can run in 15 seconds. And just to make it more realistic, start from a seated position. On the second floor.
