B”H Pain is inevitable. Suffering in optional. Gratitude for everything, regardless of the situation; forgive yourself; forgive others. Don’t provoke and don’t be provoked. Shana Tova 5779

Really nice video,Thank you. I assume the message is referring to forgiving somebody that hurt you and letting go. Facing the hurt and pain and allowing yourself to let it go. However, this would only be the case where the one who caused the pain is sorry, otherwise typically can't really forgive somebody if they aren't sorry that they hurt you.

To commenter #2 Dan

I have actually chosen to forgive 2 people who have hurt me and never apologized for their actions. Without going into detail, I will tell you that I am making this choice because I believe this individuals are and were benighted. To this very day I am certain they believe they have done nothing wrong. Therefore, I can resume my argument with them OR I can surrender/forgive. I am choosing the latter action. If you knew the details of this incident, I don't know whether you would agree with me. I am also staying anonymous in case one of these individuals is reading this post.

What is preventing the peace in Israel ?

Bunny Shuch, September 21, 2018 7:27 AM

Palestinians don't recognize Israel's right to exist.

To Ronald Hemmings: The Palestinians refuse to acknowledge the right of Israel to exist in any way, shape or form. Though many offers of peace have been made by Israel, the response is always more terror, more murders. "You can't meet someone half way who doesn't want to meet you at all." For this reason, Israel must remain strong and defend her citizens.
