Israel’s Tomorrow Is Now Ours To Worry About – RIP Shimon Peres

Tweet   I always hoped to meet Shimon Peres. I got close. I was due to meet him at the Israeli Presidential Conference three years ago on his 90th birthday.

Take Responsibility For Your Life

Tweet   This past year has been an awkward dance to a melody only I can hear, punctuated with upbeat highs and rock bottom lows and the beat of a constant active struggle to find the hallowed middle ground.   I’ve been doing well.
