More thoughts on Purim

"And Haman went out on that day, happy and with a cheerful heart, but when Haman saw Mordecai in the king's gate, and he neither rose nor stirred because of him, Haman was filled with wrath against Mordecai".

There have been times in our history when our bodies were forced to bow before men, but the heart of a Jew will bow for no man.

I wish you all a happy Purim.

yea i was also a bit confused.
maybe (s)he's lookin at it more like a continuation, not an explanation-yes, mordechai didnt bow down, BUT even when jews HAVE bowed down, our hearts are still upright.

hmmm or not.

My apologies to everyone who commented for my late responses.

Kos and Sabra: It is not really an explanation, but rather a statement of a strong Jewish value.

Stevin: A belated happy Purim (and Pesach)As you see I have updated your link you fine Jew. Thanks for your support!

KOS and Sabra: And a happy Pesach to you - I hope it was great.

Stacey: My Apologies for the late response. Work has been extremely busy (no, I'm not an accountant). My Pesach was quite good, and I hope yours was good too! The Jewish Freak is back! Thanks for your support.
