    Oy! We need Moshiach right now! So many people passing away now. We really need to do everything in our power (and not in our power) to bring Moshiach immediately!!!

    Very, very sad. Regarding the clip at the end which shows how this can happen; 4 blond women do stupid things. 2 strong men save baby’s life. You dont have to be blond or stupid. This is everyone’s nightmare and can happen to men as well. Our minds are overloaded with way too much. Supermom, super-dad, we can’t handle it all the time. Muli-tasking is the worst invention. I don’t know the answers… Hashem, please guide us.
