I just returned from Israel with my family. I appreciate your comments and those of everyone else -- but at this
point, I'm really trying to live my life and to contribute what I can to
make the world a better place. Both Israel and the 'Daks are
inspirational for me in very different ways. These are both places,
populated by people, who care deeply about the land for which they are
stewards and protectors. These people inspire me.
They commit their
lives to public service in the true sense -- they dedicate themselves to
helping others, without any expectation of anything in return. Some
helped to run a place that provides stimulation to old people who show
up every day to 'work' -- they make crafts that they sell, and get a hot
lunch every day. Others helped run a hospital populated by kids with
extreme disabilities -- both acquired and from birth. All we did was
show up with a suitcase filled with toys that we brought from the U.S.
It seemed inadequate.
Why the ramble? Well, the objective for me is to figure out how to
make my time on this planet meaningful. Litigation is a distraction
from the greater good objective.
