Those are the words Keith Olbermann uses for every single guest on his MSNBC show, “Countdown.” I offer them now to you. Great thanks to Amy Cunningham and mazel tov in advance for her son’s bar mitzvah, great thanks to Valerie Reiss for pain-free editing and great photos, and great thanks to you, the Chattering Mind blog audience, for your attention, your comments, your emails, and just plain reading.

I’ll finish where Amy left off—with her son’s Torah portion, Numbers 6: 24-26 (paraphrased):

May Divinity bless you and keep you.
May Divinity make Its face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you.
May Divinity lift up Its countenance upon you, and give you peace.

In fact, Dona Nobis Pacem—Grant us all Peace.
