Is it that our culture does not produce heroes or that we are so enmeshed in our culture that we become desensitized to the heroes in our midst?

Netivos shalom says that the thing that is most difficult for you is the thing that you were sent on this earth to strive to affect.Each person has that one special chore in life.  If we are easily jealous we need to learn to be happy when someone else succeeds. When we have an uncontrollable desire that is what we need to conquer. It is our destiny. He and you said it much better.

Yasher Koach once again. Thank you for sharing.

7 Yehoshua on 2015 07 10

Am Yisrael is the Pinchas of mankind.  There is no logical reason why Jews should persist in being Jews.  We have been hated by most of the world since Egypt.  And yet, each moment is an עת לעשות לשם, a defiance of every norm, of every sensible course of action, the most sensible of which would be simply to assimilate or, in the geopolitical world, leave Eretz Yisrael and move somewhere else.  Each moment that Am Yisrael persists in being Am Yisrael is an act of zealous determination to sanctify Hashem’s world.
