    I'm following the news about the pipe bombs that were sent to several addresses, including CNN and both former President Obama and President Clinton. All that I can think or say is thank the PtBs that the bombs didn't explode. Here's a link to one of the articles associated with this "situation": https://start.att.net/news/read/art...st_trump_ally_to_peddle_bas-tca/category/news

    I'm posting here instead of in Media because the story is politically linked, but not necessarily linked directly to the loaded speeches by POTUS.

    Interfaith does resonate in spite of...

    https://start.att.net/player/articl...efugee_raises_700000_for_synagogue_victim-ndn

    The young man who started the fundraising page just happens to be either Muslim or Zoroastrian(sp?) and he happened to raise through his page over $700,000 for a synagogue that he might not ever see irl (he's in New York City, the shul is in Pittsburgh {two different states}.)

    I'm kinda ashamed that he's done more than I have to assist in the rebuilding of this congregation.

    Nothing to feel ashamed of in this. We should feel encouraged that people are doing so much good and living interfaith before our eyes. So many of us contribute in different ways. There are other ways to make a difference besides raising money, including raising awareness.

    From your post I was unsure if you are aware that the killer murdered members of three separate congregations: Tree of Life- Or L'simchah; Dor Hadash; New Light, a congregation of which I was a member many, many years ago. All three congegations were housed in the one building which belongs to Tree of Life, but conducted worship services independent of one another.

    This gentleman has a legitimate rant:


    I hope that he still has his job and his family. I know that I'm (possibly) facing the same thing as his wife and it scares the living sh!t out of me...

    An article about a lady who cared for/buried AIDS patients during the earlier years of the epidemic. She buried the young men in her family's cemetery in Arkansas.

    eta: An article about why the late John McCain's widow told Drumpf not to attend her late husband's funeral... https://start.att.net/news/read/art...ill_ever_get_over_trum-rfoxnews/category/news

    If one rams a foot down one's own gullet, expect to be snubbed.

    They ask legitimate questions towards the end, but the entire video is important imho.

    I chose to post this separate from Sully's story because I didn't want to sully Sully's story with Wisconsin politics: https://start.att.net/news/read/cat...n_republicans_forge_ahead_with_powerstripp-ap

    The Republicans are being a$$es, trying to limit the incoming Democratic government, especially the new governor and state attorney general (can you say "sore losers"? I knew you could.)


    eta: more information about sore losers from the last election -

    Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquin passed away from extreme dehydration and starvation in INS/Border Patrol custody at the tender age of 7. She escaped from Guatemala along with her father, who has/had to bury his little girl. Here's more about her: https://start.att.net/news/read/art...nt_girl_7_who_died_in_border-ap/category/news
