On Being, "Conflicted" About a Certain, "Question."
Someone close to someone close to me - a de facto inlaw - 's parent now, nearing the the final point every life cycle must reach. Sad reality we all get to endure.
Now, this person is as decent (as in considerate, responsible, caring, strong, & every other admiring word you can think of) a person I've ever known or ever will know; and I have personally benefitted immensely by her graces toward me.
That said, she is not, "of my kind" and is, a member of the one a certain question talked about. I've talked about it A LOT myself. And my opinion of it based on evidence, and certainly not politically correct.
Distinguishing the person from the "tribe" DOES cause me difficulty. Great difficulty. She's on her way today to her father's hospice bed and all that sad reality includes. I phoned a message (she's in flight across country) and left some words, heartfelt ones. And as soon as I hung up I felt a hypocrite.
My words were true but my opinion unchanged. I wonder if others here, the same conflict?
Furthermore, I've kinda actually be saved medically by a doctors (actually more than one) Jewish too.
I guess this comment my own mea culpa - life does have its knots we get tangled in.
Peace to us all tho ... and especially today, this beautiful person, her Dad & all their loved ones.
Thank you for reading if you have to here & any of your own ways of dealing with appreciated ...
