Atara was getting married Saturday. Her mother from Israel – her father a Marine from Hutchinson, Kansas, stationed there during the cold war, had called her “Princess”.
Looking around the small village, where her mother was born, Atara noticed an old woman sitting under a tree. “It is hot!” the woman said.
“Yes ma’am. It will be all this week.”
“American hotel is air-conditioned.” The woman mumbled and cackled.
Atara blushed running to her car.
“Would you like to sit in my cool car?”
“Yes, what a nice girl you are!”
Even small gestures can save lives – and it did.
