I think we often take what we have for granted. That sometimes means we don't aspire for better but settle instead. Other times we accept graciously what we have but know that our privilege to so much must be shared with those not so fortunate. Knowing we can do better should be our goal. And helping others along the way is not shameful. It's joy. In Yiddish, it's called "NACHAS" -- pleasurable pride. It's a balance worth keeping in mind. So take just under two minutes to reflect while watching this split screen view of life. Being kind and generous isn't a flaw, it's a virtue. Maybe our congress can learn that someday. Flex your vote and they will. But until then, we must have hope and compassion.
