Watched “12 Years a Slave” for the second time, last night. Today these were passed around at a Black History Event. Just to touch & feel these actual slave chains, to feel the weight of them, was an experience. I’ll leave it at that. #TooManyThoughtstoType #Sacrifice #OurHistory #BlackHistory #Humbled #Thankful

Attended a #Kiwanis meeting, where a Rabbi started with a daily reading. It spoke such a volume to me, that I asked him could I have it. It reads:
"There are 3 starting points of contemplation about God; three trails that lead to God. The first is the way of sensing the presence of God in the world, in things; the second is the way of sensing God’s presence in the Bible; the third is the way of sensing God’s presence in sacred deeds. These 3 ways correspond in our tradition to the main aspects of religious existence: worship, learning and action. The 3 are one, and we must go all 3 ways to reach the one destination. For this is what Israel discovered: The God of nature is the God of history and the way to know God is to do God’s will."
- Abraham Joshua Heschel
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. "
