Congratulations to the Patriots for continuing their remarkable run of success. A special call out to the first ever Jewish Super Bowl MVP, Julian Edelman. Each time a barrier is broken, it demonstrates that stereotypes of who is capable of what, are antiquated. Now that the football season is over, the players get a few months of rest before they gear up again for another season.
For those fighting for the values we hold most dear in our world, there is no off-season. The non-democratic polarizing forces that want to bring us back to the Middle Ages or Stone Age, never rest. Thus, the demands of the time compel us to be fully informed, ever vigilant and completely engaged in our advocacy. One of my highlights of the Super Bowl was watching Bill Belichick scream at the refs in the last minute of the game while he had a virtually insurmountable 10 point lead. He took nothing for granted until the victory was fully secure.
Fortunately, we are not alone. Together, like any great team, we achieve a collective success that is much greater than what we could achieve on our own.
