Rosh Hashana and the Queen’s Passing

The SD is a monarchist.

One of the commentators on the Queen’s death on the TV this morning mentioned that she always listened to criticism and tried to change. In a famous speech she said “criticism is good for people and institutions.” It’s ironic because she is the last person in the world who needed to listen to anybody. She was the Queen. But she realized that criticism leads to improvement and change.

On Rosh Hashana we are called upon to examine our ways. We are mandated to think about how to improve. We should look at ourselves with a critical eye to be better, kinder, and more generous of spirit.

Let’s be royal and examine ourselves and improve.
