BTW, Bubbe shared an email she received and feel it's fitting for this post:
I got this by email yesterday: I have a prayer request. There's a lady I've known forever. She's very sick. On top of that, she's being abused by those to whom she has given everything. Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides. Just breaks my heart. Seems there's nothing I can do alone. But maybe, if we join in and lift her up together we can heal her. She's well over 200 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is 'America' ... and I love her dearly.Thank you Bubbe!
