It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Seneca Falls in Asheville

I had the esteemed pleasure of participating in the Seneca Falls/Hillary celebration yesterday in Asheville, NC.  The Asheville Hillary Meetup has been going on for months, is very active, and dedicated to the cause.  We put on the event on the steps of the Federal Courthouse, a very appropriate backdrop for a dramatic reading of the Declaration of Sentiments of 1848, and the Declaration of Sentiments of 2008, which it was my honor to read.  I was also asked to give remarks on Hillary's history making Presidential Campaign.  I will post the text of both later on, but I wanted to take a moment to thank the good people of the AHM for putting on a spectacular, meaningful event, for their hard work and dedication to the cause, and for buying me dinner and giving me a little gas money, which was very sweet and most appreciated.

Thank you all for beautiful day.
