The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

Yiddish is Dying? Again?

Or so this article on Yahoo claims . . .
It's an old story . . . Yiddish has been on pronounced dead for years . . . it has yet to realize it though -because as far as I can tell every third Lithuanian Jew speaks it fluently (with the Cheilam k'muvin) . . .
Let those that yearn for the days of the Yiddishe Teater remember that there's no Yiddish with out the Yid.

It's up to what you call the secular world. If movies, TV, un-tzneius clothes etc. is the secular world, then yes we shun it.
But that is a rather shallow way of looking at things. For in truth, we use the good of the secular world.
