But the Almighty would
not permit Jacob to betray his
earlier idealism. And Jacob is
soon confronted in yet a third

and striped cattle. But our
biblical story teaches us that
it is never too late to revert to
our earlier idealism, to recap-
ture some measure of our
youthful altruism.
Let us never forget or for-
sake the dreams of our
