Although the world seems to be gong to hell, my family gives me pride and hope. Whem my country elects a leader like Obama, I am filled with pride and hope.
But the results of this California initiative bring to mind something that I must teach my children every year:
In each generation each Jew must look upon himself or herself as though he or she, personally, was among those who went forth from Egypt. Not our ancestors alone did the Holy One, blessed be He, redeem from suffering, but also us and our families. Each generation is duty bound to contribute to the growth of freedom, else humanity’s ideals become stagnant and stationary.
