I'm 18 and only now have my driving permit. I could have gotten it two years ago but I didn't have a big need. For one thing, if I ever needed to go to town I'd go with my grandma and we'd do all of our errands together. Then I moved to the smallest town in PA. I'm not sure if that's completely true, but it feels like it. Again, there was no need to drive. I can walk to the grocery store, library, rite-aid, dollar store, and even the school. The school's football field is directly across the street from my apartment. I have no need to drive anywhere.

Walking saves gas, which saves resources. My advice for the day is to walk when you can. If it's impossible to walk to a friend's house, walmart, or some place like that try car-pooling with friends or family who need to go to the same place.

Angels and Nature! (previously published)

The Linking Angels“And you shall make two golden cherubim; you shall make them of hammered work, from the two ends of the ark cover.” (Shemot 25:18)Among the various instructions provided for the assembling of the Mishkan in Parshat Terumah, the cherubim are quite an odd and ambiguous request. Rarely do they appear elsewhere in the Torah and never are these entities described clearly, other than their having wings and faces pointing towards the Aron Kodesh. Their purpose in Judaism and the…See More
