The Bar where the attacks had taken place
A few nights ago it was White Night in Tel Aviv. For all of you that don't know, White Night is a cultural night led by the city where the entire city of Tel Aviv stays awake all night till 5AM or later that day, with a bunch of stores, stalls staying open, concerts running all night, and so on. So in true fashion of White Night, a group of us went out to the city and see the sights. First we went to Rabin Square, where ex-Israeli PM Yitzhak Rabin was assasinated in Tel Aviv and I acutually had walked there before and I didn't even know the historical significance of the square. After headed there a few of us broke off and went to the boardwalk where we ended up at a bar called "Mike's Place". Mike's Place was the site of a suicide attack a few years back where 3 lives were lost. While there, I got a chance to see the plaque dedicated to the lives lost there and a while and I had a chance to comtemplate the past. Mike's Place was the site of a very deadly suicide attack, but seeing them rebuild just gave

The picture of the full plaque at Mike's Place. If you can see closely, the guitar has 3 strings broken. I don't know what it means for sure, but I think it has to do with the 3 lives lost that day
