Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

World peace

A very old man had been going to the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time. In time a journalist heard about this, so she goes to the Wailing Wall: and there he was, walking slowly up to the holy site. She watched him pray, and after about 45 minutes, as he is turning to leave, she approaches him for an interview, explaining that she is a journalist with a major news network. "Sir," she asks, "how long have you been coming to the Wailing Wall and praying?"

"For about 60 years," he answers.

"Amazing! What do you pray for?"

I pray for peace between the Muslims and the Christians and the Jews. I pray for all the hatred to stop, and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and friendship."

She shakes her head admiringly. "And how do you feel after doing this for 60 years?"

"Like I am talking to a fucking brick wall."
