I went on Birthright during the winter of 2009-10: the time of Operation Cast Lead, and amid the elections for Prime Minister.
We saw the beauty of Israel, and enjoyed the fun most students did, but there was still something very different about that trip. My mother was anxious, and upset that I had still decided to go.
