The Rabbi's Shofar and the Dog



(pretty great isn't it)

To my friends struggling with life's battles, may this new year bring you victory, or if that is not possible, a deep and meaningful detente with the enemies within and without.

To the researchers looking for a cure in the workings of our cells gone bad, may the light go on this year and stay on through all the validations, and may the move from the bench to the clinic be easy, swift, and cheap.

To the families of those with loved ones up to their eyebrows with the travails of illness, may you find the strength and support to keep on the relentless and under-recognized fight you fight.

To our political leaders, may they remember the unforgiving reality and the often unintended consequences of whatever changes they may make to healthcare for those of us living on the knife's edge. May they remember who they work for and who pays their salaries.

To all my friends, those I have met, and those I will never meet, may it be a year of peace and joy and prosperity and some good deep belly laughs.

I do get by with a little help from my friends. We all do. Thank you everyone for your support. Especially my family and most especially my wife.

Finally, please find it in your heart to forgive me and others for both our shortcomings and overreaching. I have had my share.

We are all in this together. I am here to help. G-d bless.
