I can’t pretend to understand the bigotry that exists in the world. I especially cannot claim to understand the hatred, bigotry, and segregation that sadly persists even today within one’s own culture, community, race, or religious institutions. Hatred towards one’s fellow human beings seems to prevail and has been passed down from generation to generation as a cancer that destroys communities and sabotages any opportunity for unity.
So what can be done about the hatred, bigotry, and segregation that sadly persists even today within one’s own culture, community, race, or religious institutions?
I intend to stand my ground, blessings are reserved for those who don’t harm others, engage in sexual perversion, or inflict harm and injustice, praying on the underprivileged or helpless. I will make every deliberate effort not to be a savage person committing such cursed acts. I seek blessings. I aspire to love others purely and wholly in accordance with the Torah. I want to succeed and witness the success of others while helping them along their journey. I desire to stand before the One and Only Living G-d and say, “My Lord, I am aware of my imperfections, but I promised to strive and live according to Your 613 commandments. I hope I have made You proud with my love for You.”
