A letter to the stars: Universal Lessons of the holocaust

Last night i ran into  two Jamaicans in the train station ; an elderly white haired man held white tulips in his hand and when i told him how much i admire Bob Marley he told me Bob Marley’s son is coming to sing Saturday night at a musical event, he gave me the tulips and wished me all the best, this sort of blessings make the curses of knowing i live in a society where i have no understanding of what makes it run , what makes it operate beside material values, i fail to see the soul as i watch people stand i know they ae discussing their ailments, it is a sick society, Europe is a sick place filled with disease of racism and closed minded people and yet some let us in, they open the door only to slam it behind us, and there is nothing in me that tells them that i might be one of them; my pale skin color, my blue eyes make me think that i am an albino from the Caribbeans. 1,278 more words

The Trump trauma

Reading this morning the news of Israel’s labor party denouncing the extreme right wing Austrian leader’s visit to Israel,and as they consider denouncing the British labor party’s antisemitic rhetoric cheapening the holocaust and saying Hitler was a zionist,i listen to a talk by Rabbi Israel Meir Lau whose survival as a child in Auschwitz is documented in a book i read a few years ago. 503 more words
