Doing the Right Thing

During the Holocaust, righteous gentiles were asked why they protected and hid Jews during the war. In spite of the dangers that existed, they all simply stated: “It was the right thing to do.”

Doing the right thing is never simple or easy. When people all around you are not doing the right thing out of fear and self-preservation, the correct choices become cloudy and cumbersome.

Take a look at the tapestry of you life. What would you sacrifice to do the right thing?


Reminder: Please join me today, at 12:30 p.m., at The George Washington University Hospital (900 23rd Street NW, Metro: Foggy Bottom) at a rally to protest my firing in August. I will be speaking, along with several other leaders of the D.C. religious community.

And if you can't make it to the rally (and haven't already done so), please take a moment to sign the petition to GWU Hospital.

This Sunday, March 7, at 4:00 p.m., I will be speaking on a "Faith and Healing" panel at the Partnership for Jewish Life and Learning's Routes event. The event is all-day, at the Washington Convention Center (801 Mount Vernon Place NW, Washington, DC 20001). Click here for a complete list of speakers, and here to register.

Later that evening, at 7:15 p.m., I will be speaking on an interfaith panel, "Developing Understanding Among Abrahamic Faiths: Opportunities for Cooperation in the Local Community," at St. Charles Catholic Church (3304 Washington Blvd., Arlington, Virginia 22201).

Thank you for your continuing support, and I hope to see you today and/or Sunday!
