What was like 107 years ago as we head for the end of the calander year
Rabbi Yehuda Lave from Jerusalem
Humility With Greatness
The type of humility the Torah advocates comes only after one realizes how elevated he really is. Then there is value to humility. A lack of this awareness is not a virtue, but a major fault.
Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman was asked if his teacher the Chafetz Chaim, who was an extremely humble person, was aware of his own greatness.
"Yes," Rabbi Elchonon replied. "Although the Chafetz Chaim was imbued with great humility, nevertheless he frequently acknowledged personal responsibility for the spiritual welfare of his entire generation."
You too, are responsible for making a difference in this world

LISTEN W WORLD LISTEN JEW
Written in 1980
A certain resolution on Zionism has been passed at the United Nations. In reality, it is a resolution on Judaism. It is important that a reply be give. It is important that the world know precisely what Zionism is and what the Jewish people are:
It is important that the nations hear our proclamation: Listen world; I am Zionist, I am a Jew!"
And listen too, Jew. Listen so that you will understand yourself who you are and what and why. For there is no escape from it even if one should be so foolish as to desire to flee the greatness and majesty of the Jewish destiny. Listen so that you will be able to stand proud and tall and know what to reply with dignity and not hesitant defensiveness. So that you will know from where you came and to where you go, without the former to is impossible to know the latter.
"Our feet are standing within thy gates O Jerusalem." – and they will never leave. This is Zionism, and the Untied Gentiles call it "Racist" and debate how to take my city away from me. Foolish world; sooner will the sun fail to rise tomorrow. The Jews have come home to their Zion and have welded their city together with a fierce tightness that none least of all the humor that is the United Nations can sunder. A people which patiently bides its time for millennia will not easily – ever – give up its state and capital.
