Ezzie's Blog Roundup, 6/15: Serach Gets Hooded

In about 12 hours, my wife - Serach Navah (Luchins) Goldish - will be getting hooded. She graduated magna cum laude to earn her Master's Degree in Education & Special Education from the Touro Graduate School for Education. She actually completed it at the end of last summer, but the ceremony was not until today. Anyways... YAY, SERACH!! :)

We'll be at the graduation, along with my in-laws and grandparents, so blogging will undoubtedly be lighter than normal. That works out wonderfully, as you all can wish Serach a hearty Mazel Tov in the next post, which is the 1,000th post on this blog.

And with that, we continue on to the roundup...

Who knew it was Flag Day?! I did - and so did Meryl.
It's a grand ol' flag, it's a high-flying flag, and forever in peace may it wave... it's the emblem of the land I love, the home of the free and the brave... every heart beats true under red, white, and blue where there's ne'er a boast or brag... but should ol' acquaintance be forgot, keep your eyes on the grand ol' flag! - I've had that in my head since we did a play in 4th grade. Wow.
LkwdGuy points to a brilliantly written post by David of Lakewood about Tach V'Tat - then asks what gain we have from remembering tragedies. Good answers so far in the comments.

Irina visits Akko on her trip. Great pictures, great narration.

Ze'ev has started to peruse the important headlines in Israel.

    Um, am I the only woman who is going to take umbrage to Ezzie's charachterization of us as "irrational"? Dude, ice cream and cookies is the most rational thing in the world. Blowing up stuff as proof of masculinity, now THAT's irrational :-)
