Golus Reminder Alarm

Sometimes, we get lax. In our observances of mitzvos, our relationships with our fellow man, and our connection with G-d in general. And Hashem sees fit to remind us that he is still there...and He does this in different ways. A light tap on the door. Banging forcefully. The shrill, insistent ring of the phone. He has many ways to get through. And if we don't get the message, it just may have to come through by burning down the house, lo aleinu.

And sometimes, its just a light reminder. An alarm clock if you will. Like this scene; I was walking down the steps of the Old City to the Kosel and saw, for the first time during my stay here (outside of a shooting gallery), an unholstered handgun.

The security guy pictured had seen someone sneak into a little hole, and got nervous. Ended up being a false alarm...or was it? I for one, hope I heard the alarm. Do you?

Interesting for me to try and find the Hebrew behind your words. Golus is Galut? as in Diaspora?
