Build Others Up

I saw this in one of the student lounges at the local JCC.


It says:

“Don’t Cut Down Others”


It’s far better to build people up then to tear them down. 


Jut like with trees, it’s better to plant a trillion trees than deforest the Amazon Rainforest. 


Trees are life and people are life. 


Be constructive and not destructive. 


Offer a nice word or compliment; provide an attentive and empathetic ear; give direction with some advice and guidance; lend a hand to someone in need; and in general, be a good influence. 


Unfortunately, too many people default to cutting down the old cherry tree! 😉

Your Days Are Numbered

How low do some people go? 


So far this year, there have been over 100 bomb threats to Jewish community centers, synagogues, and schools–threatening innocent men, women, and children. 


In just three months, from the election through February 7, there have been over 1,300 hate incidents targeting a variety of religious and ethnic groups since the election–this is a 650% increase over “normal.”


Thank G-d, nothing large-scale and serious has actually happened.


But hate is alive and well in the USA. 


Already, there’s been one arrest of a left-wing extremist. 


You can be sure that more will follow!


Those evil people with bias, prejudice, and hate in their hearts and violence on their minds will see justice done. 


It’s a matter of time…


Unanimously 100 Senators have called for swift action. 


We have some of the finest law enforcement in the entire world. 

And with every hateful act, you are leaving a most wonderful forensic trail of evidence that will lead them right back to you. 


It’s one thing for people to disagree politically, religiously, socially or otherwise but it’s another to be a racist and hater and seek to do bad.


You may be calling in bomb threats, but what’s ticking is the clock on you…the countdown has begun until you’re caught and then you’ll be counting the years and decades locked securely behind bars, wasting away, and doing your hard time and penance for the crimes you have done and the evil you espouse. 


With justice, may G-d hear it, see it, and let it be done. 😉
