Small World

As I washed my face last night
It suddenly hit me:
Right now
As I follow my routine
Someone's life is on the line in Mumbai
And countless other things are happening
Around the globe
And next door.
It's a BIG world...

Then
I took out my Tehillim
And prayed
For a brother and sister
I've never met.
And the world feels small and cozy
again.

Good point.

It's amazing to see everybody talking about the same thing, and to say tehillim and everything, it really unites us.

Most places are commenting that this tragedy brought Am Yisroel closer together- it didn't matter if they were Lubavitch, Satmar, Charedi, or whatever- all were Yidden.
Thanks for the beautiful post.

Unfortunately, only some of us got closer together.

Beautiful post. Let's hope that the effect of achdus will last, so that at least something positive came out of it all...
