    Powerful Speech

    Excellent! I especially appreciated when you expressed the importance of being generous- NOT STINGY- with expressing love and words of inspiration. Many educators, never mind parents, don't realize the power of giving a child attention and kind words. It's hard to believe but it's true and I'm glad you spoke out to enlighten people who aren't sensitive to that concept. Hazaq u'baruch!

    Isn't that what GD wanted?

    Yes I get what you are saying about being self conscious. I get that this happened when Adam and Chava ate from the Tree of Knowledge, and then Gd asked Ayekha. But isn't that exactly what Gd wanted for us and from us? Isn't that what HE wanted us to experience so that we can work on ourselves back to where Adam and Chava were before they ate from the Tree of Knowledge? Seems that it wasn't a mistake. Seems that that was the purpose.
