A CNN journalist heard  about a very old Jewish man who had been going  to the Western Wall to  pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long  time.  So she went to check it out.  She  went to the Western Wall and there he was, walking  slowly up to  the holy site.

She watched him  pray and  after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a  cane and  moving very slowly, she approached him for an  interview.

"Pardon me, sir, I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. What's your name?" she asked.

"Morris Fishbien," he replied.

"Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?"

"For about 60 years."

"60 years! That's amazing!  What do  you pray for?"

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop. I pray  for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults, and to love their fellow man."

"How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?"

"Like I'm talking to a f%@#ing wall!"

It's tragic though that the reality comes pretty close to this joke. I'm sure that in another 60 years people will still be talking to walls hoping for change that still didn't come...

I realize the the resolution does not allow you to read the caption on my current avatar, so I will translate:

How to do absolutely nothing and feel like you are making a difference.

Very funny. I got it in the mail yesterday. Sadly, it will probably be lost on many people.
