We're off, Argentina kicking off and moving the ball out to the right, just inside their half after recycling it across the back four and Zabaleta launches a 40-yard pass down the inside right channel that skips into Cillessen's hands as he races to the edge of his area. Saved!

Dear Robin, as always thought provoking, provacative and wonderful. Thank you...now waiting to hear you perform this with the sports done like the Meatloaf song...by the Dashboard Light but with soccer commentator in background.

Thank you for continuing to share your experiences..personal and passed on into your  DNA.

Stephanie

Dear Robin:

Thank you for writing and sharing this classic poem.

You are telling the story of so many people, including those of my own family who lost their lives who didn't escape from Germany and the handful of those who did and were blessed to start a new life here and also all people today whose own existence is threatened by circumstances beyond their control.

Your  Cafe provides an oasis from the horrors of brutality of all sorts, including the philistine dehumanization that has become part of out corporate entertainment industry, allowing us to accept violence as being normal and excusable behavior.

Der Fuhrer would be a reality tv star today.We deserve better for our children,and the vast variety of cultural events your cafe celebrates are a step in that direction.

And tin your stunning poem, he juxtaposition of the World Cup and your life story is remarkable and touching.

This poem should be in every school to teach us how to think and how to realize that we must all act responsibly towards one another for starters and to try in some small way to make a contribution while we are here.

This poem is as perfect and symmetrical as the number 5775,  the number our new year.

L'Shana Tovah to you, your family, and to all survivors of brutality everywhere in the world.

Together we will all make a better world

Thank you

Robin,

I just read your poem today, Yom Kippur.  It was amazing, heart searing, and one of the best things I could have done. Thank you.
