The Week that Was

What a crazy week it has been!

A week that "was supposed" to only feature Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'atzma'ut upon the State of Israel's 65th birthday, instead turned the mayhem everywhere else.

This week featured:
  1. The Boston Marathon Bombing
  2. Big earthquake in Iran (most powerful in almost 40 years)
  3. Ricin sent to a senator, a judge, and the President and the perpetrator's capture
  4. A massive explosion in West, Texas, with many dead, missing, and injured
  5. Major flooding in Chicago - the first time my home got flooded that I can remember
  6. Killing of first marathon bomber - Tamerlan Tsarnaev - after they killed a policeman
  7. Manhunt for the second - Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with the entire Boston shut down
We pray that next week will be better, as Rav Yaakov of Luniel composed:

יהי שבוע הבא לישועה ולרוחה

How is the basement now? Is the rest of your home ok? Are you still living in it? Hope it dries up very soon.

It sure was a week to remember. I don't think there is one person who was not affected by all these things. We can see that calamities are happening often and in groups, escalating throughout the world. While some are gripped with fear, others sense the impending Geulah and are fortifying themselves with Emunah (and hopefully regret for past mistakes).
