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

We Are All Related

Today is a federally mandated holiday to honor a mass murderer and slave trader.  Instead of remembering him, remember the Oglala Lakota of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.  Pine Ridge is the poorest county in America.  If it were not for AIDS deaths in Africa it would have the lowest life expectancy in the world.  It is a continuing disgrace that this goes on in America.  So do something about it.

Watch this:

Look under "Donation Drives" and "PRR Organizations" and see what you can do to help.  Start a drive at your place of business, your school, your neighborhood.  Do what you can.

We are all related.
