Bad things will happen. People will get sick and die. Hurricanes will devastate a city. Tornadoes, earthquakes, drought — this is the world pursuing its natural course. But we are responsible for the rickety ladders, the extent to which global warming is created by human beings, the dangers posed by depending on energy sources that are dangerous, and the connection between our consumption and the planet’s inability to sustain all of us. We can’t depend on miracles, only on our resolve to take responsibility for what we can change to make the world safer.

"The highest form of wisdom is kindness."

Talmud Brakhot 17a

littlebearleah:

Hassidic Jews celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim in Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim neighborhood on March 21. Purim is a celebration of the Jews’ salvation from genocide in ancient Persia, as recounted in the Book of Esther.
- Basically Purim is sort of like Halloween, you’re supposed to go crazy and dress up in costume, drink and eat a lot, and be happy. But instead of going trick or treat, people bring gift boxes to you!
