 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"

might have to swipe that one!

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
