No final judgment for me awaits
Without eternal reward after death
The skies emptiness is all that waits
In spite of this, I still believe
That a good deed is its own reward
For those who life by revenge's blade
Will surely die upon the sword
But those who strive for good
And plant kindness in the blight
Shall be rewarded by the fact
That they walk in paths of right
I had a chance at revenge against someone who bullied me, and I spared them. Very proud.

I bring in coffee for everyone (I'm not the coffee girl, but I did a coffee run)Everyone smiles gratefully, takes one, sniffs it approvingly, takes a happy sip and then without missing a beat, starts yelling. Without missing a beat.
And in honor of that:
Hot weather actually makes me miserable and irritable.
( their views would be extremely offensive to Christians, fair warning.Collapse )
So now I have to open up their minds, but I don't know how. What resources would you suggest to show the common bonds of Abrahamic faiths?

Yes, elections. No more commentary from me here, I work for the government.
This says enough.

Heaven help me...I'm thinking about moving to Israel permanently. I am in love with this country and I’m so much happier here.
But that means saying goodbye to my friends, to the New York Public Library, to long baths and my niece. It means living in a war zone. It means higher prices. It means less time with those I love.
But it also means closeness to Europe, amazing weather, beautiful culture, wonderful family, and lots of eligible bachelors.

I don't have to repeat how much my Clark means to me. He's my hero. And having him back home feels amazing.
Last week, he got 48 hours leave and he went straight to my aunt and uncle's home to do their laundry. Yes, theirs. Unfortunately, he was so exhausted that he fell asleep in the shared backyard while hanging laundry. A neighbor gently moved the umbrella to cover him and put a blanket on him.
My real life hero. My real life Captain Israel. My big brother and dear friend, who makes me believe in myself. I know, in true Israeli fashion, you get embaressed and tongue tied by emotions.
But you know without words how much I adore you, and how much it lightens me that you adore me. You make me a better person.
I plan to hug you so hard next week.
In honor of his side of the family, (which is Sephardic), my celebration song.

I want to see vaccines for everything. I want one for every form of cancer, for ALS, for Alzheimer's, for Multiple sclerosis, for autism, for AIDs, for malaria, for influenza. You name the illness, I want it ended.
