Kibbutz Nahal-Oz, just a few hundred meters from the Gaza Strip border, has suffered hundreds of mortar shells from Gaza during recent years.
"Nahal-Oz can be translated as ‘Courage brook'. So, what do you think Nahal-Oz residents are doing?
For example Cecilia Bogdanovic is a Spanish-speaking Nahal-Oz resident, who works in a kindergarten, and in her leisure time writes letters in Spanish to world leaders to clarify that Israelis living close to Gaza are peace-loving people, and that the rocket and mortar attacks against them must be stopped. In her further leisure time she does ceramics and other art work - her exhibition is opening on December 10, 2009 ( SEE photo).
In addition Cecilia is, all the time -whether work or leisure, smiling. Except the hours of attacks of course.
Our warmest greetings to you, bravo Cecilia!
