The Evil That Is Child Trafficking

Please, please watch this short 4-minute video. 


It is very impactful!


EVEN…


– If you don’t know what’s going on with child sex abuse.


– If you are afraid to know.


– If you don’t want to believe it.


– If you busy and generally haven’t cared in the past. 


Here are some basic statistics:


💥There are at least 2 to 4 million cases of human trafficking annually!


💥It is estimated that 50% are children!


💥It’s a $32 billion dollar industry and growing! 


Maybe (hopefully) you believe in G-d


We are G-d’s children. 


Children are our children. 


We have a duty to protect children. 


How will you answer the call?


Here’s where you can place a call:


– National Child Abuse Hotline: (800) 4-A-CHILD (422-4453)


– National Sexual Assault Hotline: (800) 656-HOPE (4673)


Finally, may Almighty G-d do justice to all the pedophiles and abusers out there. 


May the Earth and Heavens swallow them up and spit them out. 


So that the children, the pure children, may grow up in a better world, a much better world. 😉

Space-Age Mouse

Just wanted to share my new futuristic ergonomic computer mouse. 


Thumb sits on the left.


Rest of the hand sits fully supported and swoops down towards the right. 


No wrist movement up and down. 


Left and right clicks buttons are at the top.


No bending of the fingers and no reaching.


Mouse helps protect against repetitive movement disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome. 


The HandShoe Mouse fits like a glove. 


It’s made by Hippus in the Netherlands. 


Comes in wireless or wired. 


Choose right- or left-hand model. 


And make sure you order the right size: small, medium, or large. 


Until we have full voice recognition or gesture control like in Minority Report, I like this space-age mouse. 😉

Vampire Slayer

So can you believe they actually have this?


It’s a vampire killing kit that was really for sale in the 19th century. 


These kits were developed and sold by entrepreneur, Professor Ernst Blomberg.


People were afraid of the blood-sucking beasts, especially in Eastern Europe. 


And so when they traveled, they came prepared.


– Dagger with a ghoulish-looking skeleton for a handle


– Pistol along with several silver bullets


– Wooden stake to thrust into its evil heart


– Cross and Holy Water (or perhaps a Star of David for the Jewish version of the kit) to repel them


Of course, we don’t have any evil bloodsucking creatures these days, do we? 


I have a feeling that a lot of people would like to have a kit like this for self-defense to keep the 21st-century version of these bad actors away. 


You think the NRA would be interested in making something like this. 😉

Outnumbered Yes


I liked this saying that I heard:


“Outnumbered and outgunned, but not outsmarted.”


I think there is a lot of truth to this. 


Might does not make right. 


Right makes right. 


There is a G-d above who watches over us. 


Those with the big guns may just end up shooting themselves in the foot. 


G-d reigns supreme and he gives wisdom and courage to his faithful.

Happiness Is Serving G-d

Times may be tough.


But I have faith in G-d.


I turn to Him in whatever challenge or enemy arises. 


My heart is singing to Him. 

Hashem Melech.
Hashem Malach.
Hashem Yimloch L’Olam VaEd


In English:

G-d is king.
G-d was king.
G-d will be king forever. 


What other reassurance in life could we ever want or need. 


My heart is singing. 

Hashem is G-d.  
Hashem is One. 


Yes, it is singing. 


I have faith that all will be well. 


– Peace, Health, Happiness, Prosperity. 


Because it is G-d who rules now and forever and ever! 😉

If G-d Is With Me

I love this photo and caption that I saw on Facebook. 


Basically it translates from Hebrew as:

“If G-d is with me
Who can stand against me.”


And it’s a picture of someone walking through the split sea like in the exodus from Egypt. 


G-d can truly make miracles. 


What G-d decrees no man can stand against it. 


We need to merit G-d’s standing with us. 


You have to do right, speak right, and have the right intentions. 


Only G-d can judge whether we are there!


But how amazing things can be for us if we look to the Heavens and merit G-d being with us.


Then no man can stand against us! 😉

Washington Democracy

Nice photo of the Capitol, the Reflecting Pool, and the Botanical Gardens.


Even in cold January in Washington, DC, it is a mighty impressive sight. 


Some of the most important lessons for me:


Democracy never ceases as long as the people rule, freedom is protected, and human rights is respected.


Those in power have an even greater responsibility to ensure they do the right thing and maintain the utmost integrity.  


We have a lot to live up to!


Hope everyone enjoys their weekend and MLK holiday.  😉
