Sometimes I'm right and I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
A butcher, a banker, a drummer and then
We're all family whatever group you're in
I am everyday people, yeah yeah
There is a blue one who can't accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
And different folks with different cloaks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha - we got to live together
I am no better and neither are you
We are the same, we're all Jews
You love me you hate me you know me and then
You can't figure out the bag I’m in
I am everyday people, yeah yeah
There is a long hair that doesn't like the short hair
For bein' such a rich one that will not help the poor one
And different folks with different cloaks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha-we got to live together

It inspires one to want to go out and perform a mitzvot

I had read before that one act of kindness, observed by others engenders more acts of kindness, first in those who observed the first act and then those who observed the subsequent acts. This video is wonderful.

UNIDADE: O atalho para a real e definitiva paz.

Continuo usando a poderosa arma fornecida por HaSHEM: Oração.

this is how we should act all the time

If we will be like this all the time, and we just might bring Moshiah.
