Donke, Rabbi.

Words to live by. "There is a fire out there; the Jewish people need you..."

I said I will almost never take a selfie. If I'm that all impt than we are all in big trouble. I am not great so that is reality. And a real Jew knows they aren't the hottest thing since....(fill in the blank) . Nobody needs to be impressed with me and that is more than humble. Please have more respect for those of us who are sometimes quiet or shy but inside know more than we let onto. Thanks much.

By my informal estimates

The number of selfies outnumber those questioning what they can do for the Jewish community by about 20 to 1. The selfies have taken over and are on the verge of domination.

Go out and do

Thank you, Rabbi Tzvi Sytner. Today I've been thinking "I can't", but your words have inspired me into I CAN. Huge difference.
