    I LOVE YOU MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS!

    I am here at Vienna. The October is warm, sunny... it feels paradox. 

    The war for our home is real. Spiritually, physically. I feel deeply connected to my home and my family. I feel you.

    YOU ARE NOT ALONE! 

    WE NEED TO BE COURAGES! 

    You all are a huge inspiration, I feel all your power and love, all the light. Let me inspire you, too, my brother and sister!

    I LOVE YOU, AND MORE COURAGES AND STRONGER THAN EVER, I AM AT YOUR SIDE, DEEPLY CONNECTED TO OUR SHARED FAITH.

    You are not alone in this battle, you will not be alone when it is over.

    I think I'm in a rabbit hole. All responses are welcomed. I'm wondering if I'm even alive. I have breath and thirst so I'm wondering if there's many or any explanations that support the feeling I get they don't see me.

      I don't understand how I'm supposed to know whether this is right or wrong without you1/2?

        Rabbi Jacobson could you please explain if this or the other versions are accurate by helping me find this? I know there's truth in at least some of it and I trust you as the person to help me to learn so I can find it in the people I was told have the truth. It's ok if you are not comfortable with that, I dont mean to put you in the hot seat with such a personal question publicly but I know you are the Jacobson Id like to politely ask and im  hoping you wont object now that I've asked if you will do most of the talking from here on out. Thank you.

    Also, do you think that 'Akadas Yitzhak' has anything to do with our accepting or having to deal with death and suffering when we don't undestand it? That's our test.

    At the end of my course in the Holocaust, many years ago, I tried to come to a conclusion. I thought that we would have to know what happens after death, in Olam Haba, to come to an understanding of death.

    Why would HaShem give a gift that we have to fight for with our lives?

      I ask myself this same question. While waiting for one answer I try to remind myself to expect two so I do not commit two errors that will not permit me to see him as father to his own creation by bringing to the birth of it my one perspective and in doing so prevents me from comprehending it. Thank you, I see now HaShem loves us and is not angry. But is he frustrated? I know he heard the question but I struggle with this because although I do have what I believe to be a right answer I wait patiently without expectation for his response. Oh man I see the rabbit hole so I'm going to just stop.
