“When I marched in Selma, I felt my legs were praying.”
– Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
Every now and then there appears a person who reminds us of our highest aspirations. He or she usually upsets the status quo, is often hated by some, but over time brings people together, and – sadly – disappears all too quickly. Think of these people, at least once a year, and recall their sacrifice, their teachings, and their contributions to humanity. That is, no doubt, the purpose of their appearance before us.
