for those of you who have lost track of the date. It is the 27th of Nissan 5780, and the 12th day of counting the Omer. None, of which, is relevant to me on most days.
But in today’s world of conspiracy theories and re-writing of history to eliminate things that are uncomfortable, or that we don’t want to be true (leaving out Holocaust deniers, those claiming England never participated in slave trade, etc) it is good to remember what has been done, what has been lost and the cost to us, both as individuals and society.
As we have all heard the old saw “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”
