 Wisdom  from an old Jewish man!    Ahhhhh……the  wisdom of the ages.


An eager female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish  man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a  day, every day, for a long, long time.

So she went to check it out.  She went to the Western Wall and there he was, walking  slowly up to the holy site.

She watched him pray and  after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a  cane and moving very slowly, she approached him for an  interview.

"Pardon me, sir, I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. What's  your name?
"Morris Feinberg," he  replied.

"Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western  Wall and praying?"

"For about 60 years."

"60 years! That's amazing! What do you  pray for?"

"I pray for peace  between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims."
"I  pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop." 

"I pray for all our children to  grow up safely as responsible adults and to love their  fellow man."

"I pray that  politicians tell us the truth and put the interests of the  people ahead of their own interests."

"How do you feel after doing this for 60  years?"

"Like I'm talking to a wall."
"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be"

 :-D

might have to swipe that one!
One could not learn history from architecture any more than one could learn it from books. Statues, inscriptions, memorial stones, the names of streets ? anything that might throw light upon the past had been systematically altered. (1.8.85)
