Dear Sinem,

I loved the article! Thank you! I subscribed to the e-mail, so now I could receive articles once a week!

It reminds me of an anecdote. A man died & was shown around by God. God said, “Let me show you the difference between here & hell.” God showed the man a room in hell, where people sitting around the table had long spoons attached to their hands. No matter how hard they tried, they could not feed themselves, they could not reach the abundant food laid out for them on the table with those spoons, & were forever suffering the pangs of hunger. “Now let me show you here, a room in heaven,” said God. He showed the man the exact same room, with the people who had a long spoon attached to their hands. But here the people were laughing & enjoying the food & the company. “How is it possible?” asked the man. “They are feeding each other,” answered God.
