I asked Ai to put Joe Biden in the model of the star, but they didn't want to, so this is the best I got.

A tremendous amount of Yidden were murdered this year. I donít understand how so many people are so happy about the year.

They say a story that the Chofetz Chaim once asked someone how things were going. The man replied, "Could be better..." To which the Chofetz Chaim responded, "No, they couldn't be, because then they would be. What Hashem does IS the best!"

The question just is whether we understand at this time in history why things are good.

Then this thread is moot.

Perhaps we can ask, "How well were you able to see the good this year..."

I know, it ruins the whole vibe.

In general the last few years have shown us how we really have no control over life and have no idea where the world will be in a few months from now.
