Oppression Does Not Ennoble

We were slaves in the land of Egypt.

We killed all of their first born sons, the moment we had the chance.

Today we are free to choose our own path, one not dictated by whips and iron chains and chambers. But the experience of slavery guarantees nothing. It’s only through enormous effort that we can become liberated, both from Pharaoh’s whip and from Pharaoh’s throne.

May this Pessah instill in us all the strength to try, enormously, continuously.

May we try.
