I think I'm going to cry

What a crazy place this is. I need to create a mantra, "G-d runs the world", and actually believe it. There's a disengagement taking place today. The deadline for voluntary displacement is midnight tonight Israel time...in two and a half hours. I can't even help protest. Friends of a friend's brother (got that?) went to protest down by Gaza - got arrested, taken to the police station, sat in the station till they were put on a plane out... that night! They aren't allowed to return to the country for a while as well. I don't know how long that they aren't allowed back in.

There's nothing worse than not being able to do anything. Today I wore my Gush Katif shirt. But really it's all about praying at this point. G-d runs the world. Rebbitzen Heller said that at this point protesting is like sending letters to King Achashverosh during the events of Purim. It's time to pray. There's nothing else.

The Bostonner Rebbe has said that we should say these chapters of Tehillim/Psalms: 20, 64, 69, 83, 85, 86, 91, 107, 130

We are begging G-d for a complete redemption, not just for a solution to Gush Katif.
