Today is Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, a day which causes us to reflect on the marvel that is Israel and its eternal capital.
Israel is only the world's 152nd biggest country, but it's always one of the first to send disaster relief all over the globe. Whether its an earthquake in Haiti, a tsunami in Japan, or a typhoon in the Philippines, the Israel Defense Forces are only one call away to deliver a field medical corps hospital where it is most needed.
Israel brings children from all over the world to its hospitals for medical treatment, even from countries that are at war with Israel.
Israel also brings its advanced technology to rural African villages. Volunteers build schools, medical clinics, and provides tools for solar power and clean water.
The words of the popular song One Call Away by Charlie Puth say it perfectly....Superman's got nothing on me, I'm only one call away.
