Help with Hallel?

Lovely readers, I am working on a textual meditation of sorts for a Passover seder, and I would be grateful if you could share, by comment or privately, anything that comes up for you in response to the following:

“Describe a moment — from your life, from a story you know — when after a long struggle, dignity and empowerment came to the downtrodden.”

Psalm 113

מקימי מעפר דל
מאשפת ירים אביון

God raises the poor from dust.
God elevates the noble from the trash heap.

    Well, I don’t have any large words of wisdom for you but I do want to say how much I’ve enjoyed reading from your blog. I was often wondering if I was interested in Judaism for the ‘right’ reasons and kept feeling ridiculous about the whole thing. After reading your blog though I figured “well he got started on his journey by Barbara Strisand and Yentel and he seems to have turned out okay”.

    Really though, it has been a great help to see someone else who is on the journey – I hope it continues to go well for you!
