...And the conversation somehow drifted to 'Al Tishali Oti'. Declared one blogger, "If I was the sabra, I wouldn't post so cryptically'. "If I was the sabra", said another, "I wouldn't use so many Hebrew & Yiddish words." Another blogger chimed in, "If I owned 'Al Tishali Oti', I would be more consistent with colors n content." "I wouldn't be sarcastic to commenters", muttered another, darkly. One blogger added not. "I have nothing to say, for 'To know the sabra is to be the sabra'."

People Who Think Differently Than Yourself
G-d created each person with physical differences. By the same token, the realization that a person does not think as we do should arouse no animosity, for this is also the result of G-d's design. A person who cannot accept differences is someone who will constantly be finding faults with others, and most likely, expressing their disapproval using negative speech. By opening our eyes to the value of others and acknowledging that G-d put them, too, into this world for a positive purpose, we can live a completely different kind of life. We can learn from others, expand our horizons and enjoy that which may be different but is worthy nonetheless.
