Social media: culture of comparison and feelings of lack

Imagine if Charles Krauthammer had led a Torah life. Certainly, his perseverance over personal challenges and his humility in spite of his stature are inspiring, but they pale in comparison to the true greatness that could have been his — and ours. Did he indeed live a life of “breathtaking beauty”? I would say, a life of heartbreaking tragedy. Multiply this tragedy by millions, and we have something to ponder during the Three Weeks.
