I am glad that Rabbi Moffic is teaching "the power of hearing multiple voices". If thereRead More is ever to be peace, it is every bit as important to hear of the experiences of Palestinians as those of our Jewish friends.
forest barbieri July 19, 2014 at 05:03 pm
I applaud the efforts of Rabbi Moffic as the children of Palestine and Israel have no quarrel onRead More equal terms, rather politics and adults propagate the hate and killing. Unfortunately, the current killing of so many innocent civilians and children will create another generation of what one side will say are terrorists and another say patriots avenging their child or relatives death. A vicious cycle that violence only enhances. When will the intelligent and forward thinkers of the Middle East come together to create a better future for all. Who is humble enough to find peace?

I definitely have to say I'm very surprised by the amount of attention this post received. I will beRead More writing a response to this for my next article because of the feedback in the comments to respond to some of what people said. I'm also shocked that two weeks later people are still writing in about it.
Shawn Palmer June 2, 2014 at 02:15 am
I think Pearl has made good points and to let others view in disabled eyes. I would have to agreeRead More with numbers 4 through 7. My grandma is disabled from a car accident in the 80's and was paralyzed from her waist down only. When she has to use a bathroom at a public place, She's fine cause she has a tubing that can be used for any bathrooms which maybe is helpful in her case. Narrowing aisles she does have problems cause like Pearl mentioned are not wide enough as I witnessed it and sometimes take the advantage and move them if needed for her to go through. Now five is something my grandma has trouble with. She can't push a cart of course or even a basket unless trying to push herself which is hard basically for everyone cause you only have two hands to use. She tries all the time but me or my aunt does take it away just to make things easier for her to push herself. It's true most places don't have automatic doors just opened for you but she doesn't have a problem as she has people opened doors for her even if me and my aunt are there which is nice of them to do so, walking in or out. seven, Same goes for my Grandma. She can't reach cause things are quite bit high for her so she has to ask me or my aunt to get her things if out of her reach. Lastly, eight. Rarely happens only at hospital when my Grandma comes with. But at woodfield mall, I can see where Pearl is coming from. Not so much though at Vernon hills as we usually get on elevators ourselves to minimal amount of people with us. So somethings my Grandma has problems with but she's never down or sad about them. She's grateful to be alive and not dead. Doesn't let anything like that bother her. But whenever she does go out, My aunt and me most of the time are with her anyways cause of how much we care about her. She can still think and do most things as other people can just not with her legs. It's difficult if you go out alone but my Aunt and I make sure to go along with cause we know she's gonna need some help. She accomplish a lot of things before the accident and after too when I was born. Sure we haven't experience much bad things but the point is, she doesn't let whatever stop her. She can find an alternative route but having us with her is ensuring. As long you have a family member or a friend with you if your disabled, you be fine. We all need a hand for something and if we as human beings can't help each other, we are only gonna go down together and further.

Have you ever heard a good "inside story" on anything yet? Never, right? Except theRead More parents, nobody will ever tell you about anything that really works yet you hear about lottery all day long, everywhere in print and audio so that alone should tell you lottery doesn't work, is waste of money and emotions...you are better off doing anything else with those money. And no, is not "only a dollar" because human heart is funny...it hopes like hell so is always "maybe next week" and before you know it you drop $20 bucks for what you used to think will hurt you one dollar then you keep "hoping" so stop making fun of smokers for paying $7 per pack on taxes only...at least they hold the product they wasted their money on while you have nothing but dreams for "next week." Treat lottery as the plague...don't forget, nothing good is ever advertised all over the place, nothing, ever.

Hi Sick. If I was your neighbor I can guarantee there would be no junk cars in the yard and theRead More landscaping would be immaculate. Evergreen Terrace is 1.5 blocks from this once beautiful home..... the crime in this area is 3 times higher than the rest of the city... a fact that was not mentioned in previous articles. I love the history of Joliet.. and despise what's happened to it in the last 25-30 years. If you drive around town and see the squalor you should be upset too.. why aren't you upset.. do you like squalor ?

One Republic sings in Counting Stars: " everything that kill's me, make me feel alive!"Read More Things happen for a reason- many times very difficult to figure out but there's always a positive hidden there. You have to search deep within you to find it. Once you figure it out, it will blow your mind! Like you said- people, all people have (bad times/pain) Be tolerant, keep searching for solutions and answers and but hesitate to ask others. Behind every cloud is a silver lining. You have terrific character!!

Our younger selves would also have to be willing to accept the advice. Often easier said than done.
Pearl Gannon April 16, 2014 at 09:47 am
I believe both of you have very good points. @Sal, who's to say that we, as younger children orRead More people would actually listen to that advice that we were given? We want to be free, do the opposite of what our parents say, etc. And @Bob, I wish more people realized that they can be THAT PERSON for others. We can be that for our children, friends going through rough times, strangers...you name it. The possibilities are endless. I just hope people learn that!

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!
