Thoughts On Donald: The Musical

There is nothing like humor to make us laugh when we feel stressed or anxious.

From my perspective, the only good thing about you know who is that he is comedy gold.

The latest submission into the world of political satire comes from The Late Late Show with James Corden. Using the song, “When I Grow Up” from the musical Matilda (based on the book of the same name by Roald Dahl), the song perfectly satirizes how you know who is destroying this country.

The quartet of performers is as follows: Ben Platt is Sean Spicer, Tim Minchin is you know who, Abigail Spencer is Kellyanne Conway and Corden is Steve Bannon.

I couldn’t ask for a better way to end the week.

Happy Friday.

My Heart Broke In Manchester

This morning, the world woke up to the horrific news from Manchester, England. A bomb went off at the close of an Ariana Grande concert. 22 are dead and numerous more are injured. Many of those killed were young fans who spent their last moments on earth having the time of their lives.

My heart broke when I heard the news. These kids were only beginning to live when their lives were needlessly snatched away. The youngest victim, Saffie-Rose Roussos was only eight years old.

I would go on, but I think James Corden is much better than I am in expressing our collective grief and outrage.

I’ve come to the realization that as we go about our lives, we forget that not only can our lives end in an instant, but that we often forget to tell our loved ones how we feel until it is too late.

May G-d have mercy on the innocent souls murdered, but also punish those responsible. No parent should go through what the parents of these kids are going through.

Wherever you are in this world of ours, take a moment to enjoy life and tell your loved ones how you feel. You never know when you the chance for both will be gone forever.
