To all of my Jewish readers (if I have any)
Tonight begins the holiday of Passover at Sundown. While this is quite possibly my least favorite holiday on the Hebrew calendar (no baked goods for 8 days! proof that Jews invented the Atkins...) it is important to remind ourselves and the younger generations of what our roots are, where we come from, and while we may no longer be slaves in Egypt, there are plenty of people in the world, Jews and non-Jews alike, who do not have the freedoms of opinion, religion, or the luxuries of every day life that we have gotten accustomed to. Chag Sameach! Next year in Jerusalem.
