Jummah Reflection: No One Is Expendable

Jummah Reflection: No One Is Expendable

Jummah Mubarak, Shabbat Shalom & TGIF.

There is nothing more important than People.

Not processes. 
Or institutions.
Or projects.
Or funding.
Or ideology.
Or religion.
Or knowledge.
Or physical needs.
Or emotional security.
Or goals.
Or degrees.
Or business.
Or pleasure.
Or solutions.
Or art.
Or fame.
Or structures.
Or government.

ALL of us. As a collective.

Humanity.

None of us are expendable. Even the ones who have gone astray or who have hurt us. We don’t get to decide to throw them away. We don’t get to judge them.

We will go forward together, or not at all.
