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!
