  2. Ish ess chaviuro yazarhu ulachiv yomer chazak! Reb Gavriel may borei olam give you koach to continue spreading the message of Ein lno al mi lismoch Ela al Avinu shbashmayim. I especially relate to your reluctance and stamina to reject the all to common numbing medication. Today any discomfort is medicated or referred to mental health professionals.Neccesiaty is the mother of invention. Challenges are the impetuous for growth as you aptly stated.
