Thoughts On Yom Ha’atzmaut

For any country, their Independence Day is a day celebration and joy. In Israel, that feeling on Yom Ha’atzmaut is no different.

Earlier this week, the citizens of Israel celebrated their Independence Day. One of the many things Israel is known for the nickname of “startup nation“.

The list of innovations include:

  • ReWalk, an external skeleton to help paraplegics gain or regain the mobility that many of us take for granted.
  • The Pillcam: a capsule that contains a tiny camera and allows doctors to see inside of a patients digestive tract.
  • The flash drive.

I could go on, but I think the video below provides a greater list that I can compile.

While Israel and her leaders are far from perfect, the world should also be focusing on the good that the Israeli people have created instead just focusing on sensationalism headlines that may or may not be true.

Happy belated Yom Ha’atzmaut.
