Qassam rocket lands in western Negev; no injuries reported

This received from a friend of mine today from a report a few hours ago

A Qassam rocket launched from the northern Gaza Strip at Israel landed in an open area near one of the kibbutzim of the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. There were no reports of injuries or damage.

Now what is in italics is what is written or said in most of the updates, after a kassam has fallen. There were no injuries this time in blood or pain, that can be seen, and it was in an open area but my wife & I, were driving by when the Kassam fell, and it shook us up.

It is not the first time this has happened to us, but when you hear the "Red Warning"(for those of you who don't know what red warning is, it is a warning of up to 15 seconds, to let you know that a kassam is on it's way) and the daily falling of kassams, does get to you and in some way does mentally injure all of us, not to mention that there are injuries and damages and death from kassams.

Sunday my wife was in Sderot and within 5 mins time there were 5 "Red Alerts" warnings, none fell near her but one did fall at the school near were I was at. To us this has taken its toll and yet, we are not affected as much as the people in Sderot and near by Kibbutz Nir Am, so what feelings we have from this you can multiply that at least 5 times for those unfortunate people. So the next time you read or hear, There were no reports of injuries or damage, remember this letter.
