I Couldn't Resist

What is one reason why the Ribboneh Shel Olam allows many generations to live at the same time? So that we can physically see that making Pesach is not going to kill us. So that we see living proof that our mothers made it through the work and we will too. So that we can see that the very young among us, who don't do very much in helping for Pesach, will some day grow up and then do their share, just as we grew up and did so. So we can see that at some point, perhaps in our 60s and 70s and 80s, we get promoted to generals and are no longer the foot soldiers carrying out all the work. So that we can see that we are part of a long tradition and this work was not sent as a punishment for us specifically. Yes, misery loves company. And happiness is multiplied when it is shared.

Me? I'm still a captain, my general is arriving in a few hours, and my foot soldiers need some organizing. Chag Sameach!
