I think that the importance of continuing pro bono legal and financial education at the local level is often overlooked as a tool for all of our uplift. There are many ways that ordinary people can help one another learn about local legal laws, like state Statutes of Limitations, or consumer protection laws in your county, in cases where they clarify, as in Montgomery County, in Maryland.
If the common good, or the general welfare, requires each person to pay one’s debts, then how can we not think of the role of understanding the implications of each financial document that we sign, and how to understand that, in the absence of understanding of local financial law? How do we each help our society to become more fully inclusive for all of us, while helping us all, especially young people, understand financial legal bindings?
I had part of an answer, a few years ago, which continues with page four of my book Stayed on Freedom’s Call, and the two song titles which were combined to create the title for this book:
Woke up this
morning with my
I’m walking and
talking with my
mind stayed on
Dror Yikra l’ven
“Freedom Will Call”
(title is author’s
He will proclaim
freedom for all his
Na’im shimchem And will keep you as
the apple of his eye
Sh’vu venuchu Pleasant is your name
and will not be
Repose and rest on the
Va’ot yesha ase
Seek my sanctuary and
Neta sorek b’toch
Give me a sign of
Plant a vine in my
Look to my people,

So, it turns out that the page will not easily format as it is seen in the book, but the idea is there (and I kind of like the way it came out almost as an interlinear translation).
Page three was last week…
1.) What are your thoughts on the importance of everyone, especially the young, understanding local financial laws regarding Statutes of Limitations, etc?
3.) Share your thoughts on how Continuing legal and financial Education via citizen cooperation might help, or hinder, inclusive thinking,
4.) Write a story, post or tweet that uses those thoughts.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
