This morning I had a very odd conversation with a financial administrator at the hospital where I receive most of my health care. As I have previously shared I have paid medical expenses in excess of my annual salary this year and borrowed money from the bank on top of it to take care of life-sustaining health care procedures and treatments. It’s the way things are and I am grateful to have had the ability to pay thus far though it is a struggle.
The news of the killings in a Temple in Jerusalem shook the Jewish world to the core. Our experience with being victims of hate crimes is sadly nothing new. The depths to which those who hate us are willing to descend seem bottomless. The hatred of the Jews seems to be without logic, basis, or limits. There are other peoples who are hated, but it seems none as virulently as the Jews.
