After a fun evening of laughter and deep life conversations I went to bed exhausted and ready for night of restoration. Upon arsing Saturday morning, the world still seemed quiet. There were few cars outside and several people walking around. At first I thought wow, so this is what Shabbat is. This is what its like to be a majority. It was refreshing. I also realized that most likely Israel has a better environment because of the fact that so many people stop driving and turning on/off electricity. They also walk on Shabbat so they probably are in decent shape.
