Everyone was pushing and shoving. Women were crying, saying, "Here's my passport, here's my children. Take my children, just take them." Monika Esseily, describing her evacuation from Beirut with her family after the start of Israeli airstrikes...from Newsweek Magazine

My own son is terrified even though we're in Tel Aviv. He refused to leave the house for an entire week. Relayed by Tel Aviv friend during IM conversation
