Cyclone Deaths

Filed under: Current Events — Reb Moshe @ 1:52 am

Red Cross estimated Wednesday that the cyclone death toll in Myanmar could be as high as 128,000. My friends, I am sure you all have good hearts and feel for the pain of these people. Let us pray for them.
The president of the country doesn’t want to let in the relief efforts as he believes his army is strong enough to handle the disaster. We too look at life this same way. We figure that we can pull ourselves out of our problems, granted it might take a bit of time. Sometimes, the greater man is the one who can humble himself to realize, even though I have a great army, I’m strong in my faith and mitzvos, I need outside help. He must humble himself and go to the Hashem, the Tzaddik, psychologists, parents or spouse and ask for help. A great warrior is one who knows his limitations and knows when to ask for help. Let us pray for this president that he allows in more aid quickly so people do not suffer the painful death of starvation.
