How to listen – a lesson by a Jerusalemite

  1. Go about your day.
  2. Partially acknowledge the helicopter flying overhead.
  3. Hear a scream from afar and register that it is in jest, not in pain.
  4. Listen to the emergency vehicle’s siren in the distance. Stop what you’re doing and see if there is more than one.
  5. There is. Sit helplessly as you hear dozens of emergency vehicles rushing to another attack against Jews.
  6. Open up your regular news source and refresh it until it starts reporting what you’re already imagining.

That’s how a Jerusalemite listens.
