Very sad for Montana. Your message is inspiring to me. Is Coach Weiss Jewish?

A man is as good as his word

Today, September 2, 2021, the week after the president of the United States went back on his word to the world, this message is more important than ever before. No mater if those around you fail to be true to their word, you can change the world by keeping your word.

My oh my. Of course an Aish.com commenter would bring politics into an article that had no political commentary baked into it.
Whether I agree with the sentiment, this is troubling. because Aish.com readers need not read articles and the attendant comments that have politicalspin. Not every idea in the world needs to be correlated to politics.
