Gilad is Home!!

The day that we have been waiting for is here. After five years and 4 months in captivity Gilad Shalit is home.

The joy I feel, the joy that so many feel, is tempered by the high price Israel has paid for his freedom. 1027 Palestinian prisoners were released so we could have our Gilad back.

I pray that in the days and weeks and months to come Gilad has time to heal and become well, and to be reintegrated into the real world. That he has the help he needs to become whole again.

Welcome Home Gilad. Welcome home!

    B”H on Gilad’s return & now let’s just hope for bsurot tovot/good tidings & no repercussions but yes, it’s scary!

    Why do you presume he isn’t well, or that he requires help to become whole? I agree its possible, perhaps even likely, but by no means certain.

    Instead of saying 1027 “prisoners” I’d appreciate it if you wrote “terrorists, including the most vile murderers”.
