Picture of the Day

we've all seen the pictures of the people in the streets standing for the memorial siren on Holocaust Day and on Memorial Day. We've seen the pictures of the bus stopped and people standing. We've seen the various normal pictures that all evoke some emotion and pride. I don't think I have ever seen a picture of the surfers stopped and standing for the siren on Yom HaShoah...

  1. Not usually pictures but I do know that people stop dead wherever they are, not just in public on streets and buses(and I'm starting to even the most chareidi ones also, especially on Yom HaZikaron. Last year a guy in a basket she basically hauled a bocher who thought he knew better out of his seat, telling him--in Yiddish--to show some respect). I've stopped dead and stood in the middle of a counseling session along with the psychologist. This morning a group of ladies in tights stretching and sweating stopped dead to stand for the siren. So why wouldn't surfers? It's just that I think media people want easy pictures (with second runner up "gotcha" pictures) most of the time so they pick the same pictures of traffic and busy streets.
