Beware of catty remarks

Hurtful comments can damage your mind and spirit — when heard by you or said by you! When you hear someone backstabbing you, take the remarks with a grain of salt. When someone stands in judgment of another, remember there are two sides to every story and the other person deserves to be heard before condemning them. Check yourself when you are tempted to judge others or engage in backbiting; recall your own imperfections and our shared humanity!

Antisemitic flyers distributed in Nassau County, New York

Stop the madness! Remember: live and let live, bear and forbear, give and forgive.

“The flyers are in bags, weighed down with rice or beans, claiming free speech to say President Joe Biden’s administration is controlled by Jewish mystics.”

“Police believe the source is an antisemitic internet trolling network trying to alarm and entice.”

“‘We have to reach out and embrace one another,’ said Rabbi Jay Rosenbaum of the North American Board of Rabbis. ‘There is a culture in this country of pushing each other away.'”

(The Hill, July 24, 2022): “The Electoral Count Act, unveiled by a bipartisan group of senators on Wednesday, intends to reform the Electoral Count Act of 1887 by making sure that the sitting vice president doesn’t have the power to overturn a presidential election and make it harder for lawmakers to object the Electoral College vote.”

An interesting piece of legislation working its way through the Senate.

July 20, 1969, “one giant leap for mankind”; Neil Armstrong sets foot on the Moon.

Present day, the James Webb Space Telescope peers into the distant past from orbit. But today in 1969 was one of the greatest moments in human history!

“At 10:56 p.m. EDT Armstrong is ready to plant the first human foot on another world. With more than half a billion people watching on television, he climbs down the ladder and proclaims: ‘That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.'”

In 1969 the world’s population was 3.6 billion.

Grateful for health

My heart is full of gratitude today as I realize I am (almost) recovered from a long foot ailment! It began in November 2018 and has plagued me the past 3 1/2 years, making walking very painful. It was difficult to walk more than a short distance before having to sit and rest my right foot. I’d been to a podiatrist, an acupuncturist, a physical therapist. I’d tried compression socks, heel inserts, cortisone injections. Finally, about a month ago, I began to be able to walk without excruciating pain! I still feel some discomfort when I walk very far, but nothing like before. The world seems opened to me again. I think time itself has done the most good.

Be thankful for good health and be proactive to maintain it!

“There is no question that white supremacists have infiltrated the ranks of the armed forces. In recent years, violent neo-Nazis and preppy white supremacists alike have been exposed as active-duty members of the military. A Pentagon report last year, obtained by Roll Call, described the inroads that white supremacists were building into the military in an effort to recruit ‘highly prized’ active-duty personnel.”
