"We Didn't have Cake Yet."
The formal part of graduation, the speeches, etc. just ended. The food part just started, so this post is standing between a Jew and his food. And yet, I just want to say, while it's fresh, in real time, that I am grateful to G-d to be here. Again. And I look forward to more times of hearing reminders of staying strong as a Jew in this world. I look forward to being impressed by the kids who speak and give me chizuk. Tonight Meira Koslowe said a great chidush about how Chol haMoed isn't just a day of not doing certain melachot, but it is a bridge between Yom Tov and Chol. And she expressed gratefulness for an education that built a strong bridge for her in this life. So much more to say. I'm saying it inside of me.
