Yes, much wisdom - thank you for sharing your love.

The “little, little kinderlach” will bring Moshiach…

That’s very well said, because “little, little kinderlach” are pure in heart.

Similarly, it will be the “little, little kinderlach” deep INSIDE of us (the pure and divine neshamah), once unfettered by klippot, that will bring a Gan Eden (a sanctuary) for Moshiach and the divine truth, once more into this world. Sigh…:)

…Until then, good anashim, keep working at it!:)

Shaina,
I am beyond impressed. Clearly this morah had a deep and lasting impact on you and it was one that has been internalized and is a big piece to the puzzle of who you are…. Great article and thanks for the inspiration.

I was scrolling down COL, and paused when I came across a picture of a little girl with the most adorable smile. I thought to myself, that girl looks alot like Shaina (P) Wolf…

You’ve written an inspiring piece, may her memory live on, and may those she impacted learn to take advantage of every moment in life, to care for others as she did for you.

I once heard a story about a little girl asking her mother why Hashem does what he does,(making her friend move, and taking people she loved away).
