Children of War (song)

How tragically apropos that I chose to listen to this song, Children Of War.

Which way is the world going?

The world is absolutely upside down.
In a bad way. In a horrible way. In a frightening way.
But the insanity of it all still speaks to me of Redemption.
When the Moshiach comes, there will be small changes that will be big changes that will turn the world upside down again in the straightest best way ever and so maybe these upside down events and decisions and reports and lifestyles are just the turnings of the dial.

Heroes of Terror

I often think I'd be the hero too, but now I recognize the heroism in it and I'm not so sure I wouldn't duck behind someone else during fire.

שיבנה בית המקדש במהרה בימינו!!

Ending World Hunger

I wish the Rebbe was here so I could see the open joy and delight on his face as he would surely discuss the latest blatant sign of Moshiach, as predicted by Maimonides -- no more hunger.

Moshiach will be a small change that will make a huge difference.

People sometimes dismiss the whole concept because it seems too radical to envision flying on eagles' wings and all the world knowing G-d. But really, with all the technology that's escalating so rapidly, we CAN imagine it. 'Google Now' unites all the parts of my life and that reminds me of how achdus Hashem will be rampant throughout the world. One message you post on a social network and millions upon millions of people can receive it instantly. These are real things, part of our life, but we see em through Golus glasses. We outta see em through Redemption Lenses.

May the Beis Hamikdosh be built speedily in our days, amen!!

A car drives by my window at eight minutes past midnight, the music blasting, reminding me to go to sleep. I feel a stab of guilt at my needless being awake at this hour.

The music is Hebrew. I'm in a Jewish land. I'm in the Holy Land, precious to G-d and precious to His people. A wave of joy and gratitude washes over me and I melt in its presence.
