Days of Awe

I may not be a Jew (and have moved away from the Judeo-Christian belief system), but I just read a Common Dreams article that rings so true in these Days of Awe (the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, when God is supposed to decide whether we will live or not).

The article was submitted by my writing teacher/mentor Gayle Brandeis (in fact, I picked it up from her blog), and she wrote it from her usual compassionate, caring point of view. At a time when even Judaism has turned into a blind support of the neocon - W - Ariel Sharon agenda, this is the kind of stuff that lets me know that not all hope is lost.
