And away we go...

Freedom !!
At last !!
From the shackles of 'Humdrum mery'....
Yes, indeed !
And we will FLY to locations uncharted....
unencumbered....
And as we go...
we will surely remember our ancestors....
climbing their way to Freedom....
out of Egypt...
Away from Slavery....
In search of the PROMISED LAND...
the land of MILK and HONEY...
In search of GOD....
as the bread baked on their backs....
in the heat of the Egyptian sun....
hands chafed and red from mortar and brick....
Away, I say !!
To a BETTER life...
RATHER,  just " TO A LIFE !"
Things would occur on this sojourn through the desert...
some 40 years in exile....in quarantine....
Seas would part....
Tablets would be brought to bare witness...
Religion itself would be formulated....
indoctrinated...
We remember the bravery....the comradery....
the sheer WILL....
that delivered us from BONDAGE....
And we shall APPLY IT....this sense of PRIDE...
to EVERY OPPRESSION....
to TODAY's enemies as well....
to ANY who seek to enslave us yet again....
And believe you ME.....
We shall PREVAIL !!!
Shabbat Shalom...
