I was about to translate a letter at KikarHashabat written by an eleven-year-old to her classmates while she was sitting shiva for her father but I see YeranenYaakov already did it so I urge you to click here to read the post including the following inspiring words:
And Abba revealed himself to me in a dream and told me, "Sori, I know when Mashiah will come. I will not tell you the date so that you won't start to count the days - to subtract, to add, to divide, or to multiply - but it is really close."
KikarHashabat reports that Rav Chaim Kanievsky was asked about the recent spate of tragedies that have occurred. The Rav said that until the coming of Mashiach, which we all pray to happen soon, there always were, and there will always be troubles because of the difficulties of exile.
The Rav also spoke about the lack of respect for the Gedolim.
