9/11 Memorial that you probably never saw and Vancouver's Granville Market on 111102

The Right Double Standard

It is said in the name of Rabbi Yitzchok Blauser: "Trust in the Almighty is a very precious attribute. The Talmud (Sotah 48b) tells us that if a person has enough bread to eat today, he is lacking a degree of trust if he worries about what he will eat tomorrow.

Bear in mind, however, that this applies only to a person working on his own attributes (our own trust in G-d). When it comes to other people, we must be concerned about what they will eat tomorrow... and for many days to come. We don't have the right to put our own standards on other people. The fact that we have faith doesn't give us the right to tell other people what to do or judge them. We do have the right to set an example for them, and teach them, if they are interested in learning.  We learn this example from the greatest master of kindness, the forefather. Abraham. Using this double standard is acceptable.

Subject: Fwd: NEVER HEARD OF THIS ONE! Why wasn't it reported?

Wonder who decided NOT to report on this????

This is the first that I have heard of this monument to those who died on 9/11.  I looked it up in Google and it certainly is there on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River, in line with the Statue of Liberty.

Russian Gift To The US

I had never heard of this before receiving an e-mail.  Wonder why the  press didn't report it?

This is the "TEAR DROP"  made and installed by the Russians to honor those who died in 9 11 and a statement against terrorism.  It is very impressive.  The tear drop is lined up with the Statue of Liberty.

Gift from the people of Russia......."Monument to the struggle against world terrorism, artist Zurab Tsereteli" is an impressive memorial and statement against terrorism.

The walkway is made of stones.

Names of the persons killed on 9 11 are inscribed on the base.  The base like the Vietnam Memorial wall.  It was a cold and windy day but well worth the drive to see.  It is down in the shipping yards across from "The Lady".
