Wow; every time I see stories like this. It makes me take a second to thank my lucky stars that I was bourn, and raised here in the United States of America. Also stories like this, helps me to see that although We have many problems in our country, and our state, they are nothing compared to being bard from a flight just because. If they wanted to drag this man off that same flight, and shoot him down the government there could. And get away with it. You see we take much of what we have in this country, such as the ada, and other rights for disabled citizens for granted. Many of our older blind brothers and sisters fought for things, that our young just walk around, and think was just given to us freely. However many of them will tell you that everything that we have today was bought with a heavy price. It's now our responsibility as young people to pick up where they are leaving off many of them, and defend, and make more progress to make sure that Blind people enjoy a life as close to normal as possible. While we have I pads, and other things that help, let us remember that non of this happens without our older cidizens who came before us. I knew a lady in south Florida who told me how when she was young, she had to have someone come to the house and teach her, because she was not allowed in the regular schools. Can you imagine that? Every time you walk out in public, just take a minute and think, what If I lived in Cuba, or Haiti, or Dubai, or some other 3rd world country, where would I be at this point in my life? And that's even if they allowed you to live at all. I'm glad to be your humble and obedient servant, Zechen Elder Daniel Ben Moshe, B'ni Yahshuah Synagogue Of Broward County, www.theblindcansee.org Choose ye this day whom you will serve. If YHWH be Elohim, then serve him, with all of your heart. However, if Baal be your god, then serve him. As for me, and my house. We choose to serve YHWH! The late Bishop Joe O Patterson told a story long ago, when I was a small child. about the show down, between Elijah, and the 450 false prophets of Baal. He shared with us how Elijah, stood, and told the false prophets to go on ahead, and call their god first. Because they had a much larger program. He talked about how they had 450 participants to introduce. Elijah was so sure of YHWH, he with confidence said, that he only had one. Elijah also reminded them, that they had to drag their fake god up the mountain side on an ox cart. Elijah also announced to the world, that his Elohim would be there when he arrived. He said mockingly, you go on ahead. Heck, I will even let you have prime time. I'M going to take a nap, and when you guys finish your foolishness, wake me up. Go ahead now, take your best shot.
