To Jewish friends everywhere, known and unknown.

May the future bring no more reasons to observe Tisha B'av.

Isn't that the supposedly saddest day in the Judaic calendar, where all the befallen Jews are remembered?

You are asking that no more atrocities befall the Judaic people I am assuming?
Not that the day should be eliminated?

It is a day of great sadness indeed. There is a long list of tragedies that took place on that date in the Jewish calendar including the destructions of both Temples.

And yes, I meant that no more tragedies occur.

If anyone is wondering, I am not Jewish. But I live in New York City, which has a large Jewish population. My best friend is Jewish. She was raised Conservative and knows a great deal about the religion. But she no longer practices. Oh, except for a menorah in the window at Hanukkah. Just like I decorate a 'Christmas' tree.
Dogmatism and skepticism are both, in a sense, absolute philosophies; one is certain of knowing, the other of not knowing. What philosophy should dissipate is certainty, whether of knowledge or ignorance.
