    Touching but...

    I think we have every right to be angry and we should express it more… G-d should get a life and leave kids alone – “its all for the good” “its all for the good” – Well show us the good already! You did enough to your people. You killed enough. You tortured enough. Go find another hobby – or how about keeping that promise you made about taking us out of this place – or do you need more action? I know, I know you have your master plan. I also know what human blood and tears look like.… Read more »

    I am so sure Hashem loves what you wrote well…how do i really know. you are so right, most of us are shepsilach and all our real questions are not answered. we mosey on along. yet we know we are in the right place. take all your chutzpa and dig within yourself answers come may not all come at once piece by piece as you request…they are placed before you. remember, we are co-creators with Hashem to bring about the real world that Hashem had in mind. It aint no small feat as we can clearly see. would you want… Read more »

    I can relate to the mother’s love on the child’s end-as an unmarried girl who lay in the hospital bed for 5 weeks and the doctors coming in every day saying-we dont know whats wrong with ur daughter, I watched my mother die a little inside every day. Yet she slept there when I wanted her to, came the second she was done with work and stayed the entire day. Told my siblings now was not the time to ask her for anything, now was time strictly to daven and find a way to make me better. B”h I am… Read more »

    I’m reading this at the begining of my day. What an amazing inspiration you are. I do try and go around with a smile but from today I will IYH do it with more meaning. Thank you so much for sharing. May Hashem hear our pleas and bring the Geula NOW

    I hope G-d will help me to make the righteous choice and the most helpful mixture.

    It is frustrating how many controversial comments, (including the above article) there are that I agree with.
    May everyone be blessed with only good – Moshiach NOW!

    More than the actual article, that touched me to the core, your comment tore me apart, your words literally tore my heart out: Your bitterness, your anger, your frustration was so clearly evident in every word that you wrote, and in a funny kind of way, I admire your openess and honesty about the depths of your feelings, and I would even go so far as to say, that I bet you, hundreds n hundreds of us out there, feel EXACTLY the same way as you do, but would’nt dare voice it openly, for fear of repercussions, maybe? or for… Read more »

    Writer ,Your sensitive heart and soul are a reflection of G-D and as are your expressive and heartfelt thoughts, Brocha V’hatzlacha and only simchas for you and your family.
    Thankyou for reminding us to be thankful and focus on the brochos we are given daily , moment by moment.

    #16, I’ve copied over your words, to read every day and feel grateful. Thank you for the inspiration… I think your words and attitude are much more conducive to living an emunah-filled, positive life than #8’s post. Though I do understand and relate to you, #8, we still do have to have the awareness and sensitivity of a frum yid, especially on a public site with many impressionables out there… Look at the Rebbe for example–how very, very much he suffered: in his personal life and also as he took every Jew’s pain to heart, in a real way.

    I am just a human being who used to cry and fall apart when I read and heard about young children and young parents dying. Car crashes with teenagers. People dying in horrific ways etc. I used to get worked up and wonder what about Moshiach and the fact that we waited so long for him, on top of that – all the Rebbes comments on how “Hes coming very soon”. I relised after a while I become numb – I would just throw my hands in the air – Whats the use of getting all worked up? Everyone has… Read more »

    ‘Life Moments’ come by when least expected and yet with incredible clear messages that speak to the heart, declutter the mind and serve as a catalyst in reassessing one’s life! Sometimes, i find such moments to hold such magnitude it is difficult to relay the intensity to another. So i thank you for opening your soul and sharing your Moment with us all!

    Chutzpah klapei shmayo mehanya. Keep up the good work. Hashem wants EXACTLY this. Not to be mashlim with the golus, but to be indignant, upset and angry. More of this will get us where we want to be. MOSHIACH NOW!

    I felt so alone. Like I was the only one who has been bombarded everyday with the inhuman people on the streets and subways, with newspaper articles, with the worries about life and future.. thanks for letting me know that others feel the same way and we’re just trying to connect with the only One who can help us see the good- if we try.

    I just had to add my comment to no.8. I thought it was so well expressed, and he managed to echo so many of our sentiments, so well, unfortunately; I feel for him/her so much, in all the tragedies, the Shidduch major crisis, the older single girl crisis, the deaths, the tragic illnesses etc etc, is it any wonder that we get to feel this way now n then?? but like he/she was so well answered, (though, by no means was he really helped, as such) we have no choice , but to keep on coming back to Hashem ,… Read more »

    how can you compare, even when the rebbe demanded from hashem his voice and words were fulled with sensitivity, as apposed to #8 whos words are filled with hatred, using expressions i wouldn’t even use for my dog.

    To all those who voiced all those concerns and demands, especially #8. (#50 go preach to your dog) Do not have the slightest doubt that your pleas were heard. Yes, there is a master plan, blah blah blah………………. But who’s to say the one above, the almighty, is in charge of what happens? Its all good and well that we sit here and cry out (it seems like all we can do) but there’s more. If the half of you really did care enough, there is so much we can do (on top of what were already doing). WHAT? What… Read more »
