Volunteering on a Kibbutz

April 18, 2012

Sadly I have already begun to neglect my blog as I spend my days volunteering on a kibbutz in the middle of the desert. I am happy to be here though, waking up in the morning and watching the sun rise over the red Jordan mountains and walking back to my room at night under the stars. The only negative is the constant army practice with machine guns, tanks, and small artillery. It is a little ironic that this peaceful little kibbutz is nearly entirely surrounded by the army’s firing zone. It is also sad that those who are doing most of the firing are only just out of high school and would probably benefit themselves and their country a lot more if they were to come to the kibbutz and learn organic farming rather than spend three years learning to fight.
