Moshe Rabbeinu was given a glimpse of all future generations spanning across time. He was shown the great Sages of the Mishna, the Babylonian rabbis of the Talmud and Jewish leaders in the Diaspora. He was shown the self-sacrifice, and the persecution that his nation would endure for centuries. Among all these giants, one generation stood out to Moshe Rabbeinu.

Our generation does not have the deepest understanding of spirituality. No, we may not reach the highest heights of Divine service.
Yet, the tremendous influences of modernity seeking to redefine everything we hold sacred, are unparalleled in our history. And despite these immense distractions, we withstand the pressure and forge on in our fulfillment of the Torah.
The level of effort invested is what counts. Our deeds are precious and powerful. With our small, yet significant choices that buck the tide, we will be the ones to reach the finish line.
