Reflections: Coming home

The final post from Bob Witkow upon his arrival back in Denver last night.

 Update from Englewood, CO:

I arrived home this afternoon; greeted at DIA by Sara Witkow and one of her "squeeze the goop out of me hugs".

While it feels great to be home a big piece of my heart is with friends, colleagues and the entire State of Israel.

This morning, the taxi driver taking me to Ben Gurion Airport was lamenting on the loss of business many Israeli's working in the tourism and service industries are facing. My hotel was only 1/3 full the past few days so it was easy to see his point.

So, in addition to making contributions to JNF and AFMDA as I've suggested in prior posts, think hard about planning a trip to Israel, and sooner rather than later.
