A Repenter’s Prayer 

Dear G‑d, I am sorry for the sin I did in Your presence by not donating more funds in support of democracy, liberty and freedom.

Dear G-d, I am sorry for the sin I did in Your presence for failing to get my children to understand the gravity of the situation.

Dear G‑d, I am sorry for the sin I did in Your presence by not realizing that freedom isn’t free and that in every generation your faithful are called upon to defend your blessings.

Dear G‑d, I am sorry for the sin I did in Your presence by not convincing some of my readers to stand up to Jew-hating and Jew-baiting bullies.

Dear G-d, I am sorry for the sin I did in Your presence by not teaching enough of my readers that QAnon, MAGA, The Proud Boys, The Oath Keepers and silent Republicans are cut from the same cloth.

Dear G-d, I am sorry for the sin I did in Your presence by not writing more blogs fighting fascism.

Dear G-d, I am sorry for the sin I did in Your presence by not convincing more of your people that Trump and his sycophants are racists, antisemites, homophobes, and misogynistic nationalists.

Dear G-d, I feel remorse, contrition and self-reproach for all of my failures or sins in not doing more to repair this broken world.

Therefore, and I beg your forgiveness.

I promise to continue to strive for Tikkum Olam in the coming year.

And as I reflect, repent, and seek renewal I say:

AMEN.
