I read an article in The Times of Israel titled, "Israel's first lady receives her own security detail." Nechama Rivlin will now have her own guards whenever she steps out in public without her husband. It only further demonstrates the harsh realities facing Israel today, with an increased number of attacks, including stabbings in Jerusalem. I have heard about some of the recent attacks, but reading this article brought them even more to light. It was also very troubling to hear some of the verbal attacks that President Rivlin has received. With so much recent violence, it is so important for all security matters to be taken extremely seriously.
