Anxiety

I feel like I'm trapped in a bottle.  My exuberance, my ideas, my creativity are restrained, and the harder they try to get out, the more they're held down.  I can't let them out because then I won't be doing the things that I am supposed to be doing, like my schoolwork.  And yet, I am somehow unable to channel them into my schoolwork even when the schoolwork interests me.

Why am I afraid of letting myself out?  Is it because I'm afraid people won't like who I am?  Is it because I'm afraid that I won't do the things I am supposed to?

    PS 1: I humbly suggest that this web site link to the web sites shown above,
    and write articles about the organizations behind them.

    PS 2: Since Orthodox Jews are increasing as a percentage of American Jews, they should also increase their participation in pro-Israel organizations, to compensate for the declining numbers of non-Orthodox Jews.

  2. There are elementary schoolchildren in Earl’s neighborhood who need to hear some of his stories. They should hear about the time when Earl [an African American] was on Okinawa, “the rock” [during World War II].

    He complained about segregation in the [American] Army and was thrown in the stockade [army prison] for insubordination. One of his friends slipped out of the barracks at night and low-crawled to the fence line outside Earl’s cell. His friend told Earl that he had overheard the commanding officer say that they were going to find a way to provoke Earl when he was on work detail, make Earl attack one of the guards, and then they would shoot him [dead]. They said: “That man will not leave the rock alive.”

    They also need to hear Earl tell his story about the Jewish doctor on the [USA Army] base who did not want to see anyone punished on account of prejudice. The doctor risked his own career, got Earl off the rock [Okinawa], and saved Earl’s life. He also – to hear Earl tell it – changed Earl’s own prejudice view of people who were Jewish.

    Pop superstar Katy Perry recently said:

    “I wish there was a thing like Shabbat that wasn’t particularly religious-based, that was kind of a worldwide day where we’re not on our phones — like a movement…”
