We seem to be slipping and sliding down a muddy slope to a future which cannot be attractive to anyone with half a brain.
All due respect to the Deplorables. And to those who have substituted mob thinking for judgement.
Why have we lost respect for each other, or even for the basic rules of decency? What am I talking about?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you? Jesus.
Don’t do unto others as you would not wish them to do unto you. Hillel
It is Yom Kippur. I have not made it through the fast. Again. I still would like to get a pass on last year’s oaths and promises. Kol Nidre. All vows … which I may vow … from this Yom Kippur until the next Yom Kippur … we regret them all; all shall be hereby absolved … Let our vows not be considered vows.
I never understood that the prayer referred to forgiveness for vows not yet made.
We are the only beings who make promises. This prayer seems to be saying, “Please don’t expect me to keep my word”.
