Ksiva V'Chasima Tova

I'm reprinting, with slight edits and an added afterward, what I wrote last year at this time:

As the New Year dawns, let's remember what counts.

The quality of our argument in favor of the internet is secondary to the quality of our Torah, mitzvos and avodas hashem.

The way to prove the internet is good is by protecting ourselves and our families from negative influences and not letting it injure our or their yiddishkeit.

Let me especially wish those of us not in klei kodesh honorable and halachic parnosas, and those of us in klei kodesh to be in klei kodesh because you want to be there, not because you were not given the tools to do anything else.
May those in chinuch successfully prepare their charges for all the possible routes life can take, and all of the tests they will find themselves in.
And note that a little secular knowledge is a wonderful thing for yiddishkeit.
May we all successfully negotiate the tests of the New Year.

Ksiva V'chasima Tova, simcha, nachas v'hatzlacha.

PS: I am asking any readers who have succesfully found ways and means to avoid or to overcome the temptations of the internet to use this space to post and publicize them.
I would consider it a zchus in these days of din and rachamim for you and for us.
