Can you please include subtitling in your video. Because we, deaf people, would like to hear of your opinions. Thanks. Reply

I have been overcome by the news that our son's (Simcha Lev ben Chaya Breindel) Crohn disease has stopped responding to treatment again. I have been almost unable to function...thank you Libbi for inspiring me to stop being afraid and to think positively and to always know that Hashem is the great healer and my strength. Reply
