Nearly every Friday ...

Posted on June 4, 2020 at 12:10 PM Comments comments (4430)
Nearly every Friday I write a post, wishing everyone Shabbat Shalom, a peaceful weekend. Not this Friday, not after seeing such hurt unfold around us. In spite of the Beautiful Weather, the thrill & miracle of the successful SpaceX rocket launch, the outpouring of love & support over our sons' Graduations and our youngest's 18th birthday, a Very Dismal cloud cast a long shadow over our Celebrations. In a year of so many global tragedies and natural disasters from wildfires, airplane crashes, earthquakes, flooding, giant murdering insects and a pandemic, my Heart absolutely Aches over the one we created for ourselves.

The irony doesn't escape me that only a short while ago, Jews celebrated the holiday of Passover, a reminder to appreciate Freedom from Tyranny, a Renewal of Faith. Just this past week, we celebrated the holiday of Shavuot, not only when the 10 Commandments were given, but also a time, a distinction not to be forgotten, when we accepted these principles by which to lead our lives. The same beliefs that have been widely espoused through the centuries, the foundation of Christianity and Islam, as well. As an attorney, the genesis of the Rule of Law fascinates me, forming the structure of all my personal and professional endeavors.

Nonetheless, injustices, large and small, prevail. Anger, Frustration and Fear rule our actions, rather than Kindness, Forgiveness and Generosity of spirit. I am very much as guilty of this as anyone, losing my temper and patience way too often, nearly every day. The consequences of my interactions may not be as impactful and publicized as recent news. However, doesn't even a minimal amount of negativity and judgement contribute to the ripple effect of the hate and violence in our community?

Political, racial, economic and other differences of thought so miserably divide our country. We judge others on not isolating themselves enough, quarantining too much, standing too far or hugging others publically. All Republicans are idiots. All Democrats hold bleeding hearts. How can issues of racial & economic discrimination be resolved when we are intent on perpetuating conflict and discord?

This also extends to acceptance of ourselves and our own shortcomings, which must be as highly valued as extending it to others. As we each decry the travesties around us, before we point fingers at others, my own hope is to remember that disharmony begins within ourselves, in every situation. This remains a personal goal I often fail to reach and yet I keep trying to achieve. Wishing each of us a safe journey, filled with inner and external peace. Shavuah Tov, hopes for an inspired week!

Can you imagine going through all of this craziness and not being able to read about it?!?

Thank you so much to the Palm Beach Bar, Brad Avakian, and Kristin Calder for providing a wonderful opportunity (and distraction!!) to help others in a non-virus related way. I read and gently critiqued essays written by adults wanting to improve their level of literacy. The best part?

The topic for each paper focused on Super Powers and which one the writer would pick, if given a choice. The responses were so imaginative & heart-warming. Beyond grateful to participate!! LiteracyPBC.org ❤️
