Occupy, By Mendel Hirsch
To occupy is more than to consume space; more than inhabiting. To occupy is to influence an environment. When being influenced, you are being occupied.
At home, I occupy. Whether I’m aware or not, I occupy. I’m a husband and a dad.
In the community, we occupy. Whether we’re aware or not, we occupy. We are a Jewish community.
When unaware, we may be influencing negatively. We occupy and we may be destructive. When aware, we can focus on being constructive.
Occupy; be present.
