It seems like there are two questions most people never really think about: Who am I? and What is death? I’ve noticed that, nearing end of life, folks do that kind of life raft thing where they’re suddenly aware of how precious and amazing it all is and begin to really contemplate more important things than, say, what color to paint the living room or can I afford a BMW this year?
Melissa, I plan to assign my writing circle students a piece on “Legacy”. Death has certainly been on the mind of Jews across the world and whatever time we have left, we damn well better use it. When respected institutions like the NY Times race for a hot headline, minus any research which proved it to be false, we all need to take a moment to check our own credentials. ❤️🩹
