In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

Redeem us for Your Name's sake


We should each call out to Hashem to mercifully send the geula soon for His name's sake

Hashem is very patient, and is waiting for us to return to Him -
We hear the news and it feels like we have setbacks sometimes;
However, we can each try to do something positive, both individually and as a community; whether it's working on personal prayer, helping others in some way, learning how to improve ourselves, and so on. - Those of us who are trying all we can, you are doing a great job. Every effort counts. Lets keep it up.
Tehillim 121 says, "Where does my help come from? My help comes from Hashem" - Hold on, and may we be redeemed soon
=
Ps. Besides doing our part, we should also realize that it is Hashem who decides what happens and when, and trust that it will come when the time is right. We do our part and He will do His at the right time.

Amen!

Your right, it is a sign that we should do something.

"Shuva eilai ve'ashuvah aleichem," the Navi tells us. We must, lulei demistafina, make efforts as you say to bring the redemption.

Yep, plus I feel that while I know that it's hard for us Jews to come together b/c of diff situations, we shouldn't let that stand in our way. We Jews on diff sides should talk calmly, instead of harshly. I understand that sometimes bad things come up and we want people to improve themselves. That's understandable, we should all improve ourselves. But we should express that with concern instead of holding a grudge. There's good and bad criticism. The good kind shows that you care about helping people improve. The bad kind is just holding a grudge. We should do the first one because this way we make the situation better without having sina in our heart.
