Friendliness! by DamaInNero Friendliness! by DamaInNero
I met these two young soldiers on the bus to Tel Aviv in Israel. They were so merry and looked so happy with their life that I could not help but to ask them if I could take a photo of them, which they gladly agreed to.
To me they perfectly represent the Israeli youth: I've travelled to many places but I have rarely seen so many happy and hopeful young people as there. They all look so serene and sunny, even when they're carrying such a dangerous duty as being soldiers.

Мальчик с автоматом, девочка с винтовкой,
Это быт народа Солнечной страны.
Что мне пожелать Вам, Внуки Иеговы?
Счастья и Свободы, Мира и Любви!

A Boy with a gun, a Girl with a rifle,
This life of the people of the Solar Country.
What I wish you, Jehovah's Grandchildren?
Happiness and Freedom, Peace and Love!

Lovely couple and nice shot! They look so cute! We always have, in general, this wrong perception about soldiers where we think they're cold and unscrupulous but your picture shows very well they're just persons and the uniform is just a dress that doesn't define who they are.

I've seen many young people who contribute to thesafety of their country and they all gave me a sense of protection, rather than intimidation. I felt a mixture of thankfulnes and maternal instinct to them.
