 When the terrible September 11 terrorist attack took
 place, most of the world knew in a matter of minutes. But
 some people heard about it much later. A tribe in South
 Kenya, in an area remote from Western technology, learned
 about the attack only seven or eight months later. I do not
 know how these people, who are not in the least acquainted
 with our world, imagine it to be, and what they understood
 about the catastrophe. But they realized a tragedy had oc-
 curred. Dressed in their multicolored garments, they held a
 solemn meeting and decided they would send their most
 precious possession-sixteen cows-to the people of New
 York to help them in this difficult moment. These people,
 beings they had never met.
 Generosity is exactly this: to give that which is dearest to
 us. It is an act that transforms us. After it, we will be poorer,
 but we will feel richer. Perhaps we will feel less equipped
 and secure, but we will be freer. We will have made the
 world we live in a little kinder.

 Why Did God Create Atheists?
 There is a famous story told in Chassidic literature that addresses this very
 question. The Master teaches the student that God created everything in the
 world to be appreciated, since everything is here to teach us a lesson
 One clever student asks What lesson can we learn from atheists? Why did
 God create them?"
 The Master responds "God created atheists to teach us the most important
 lesson of them all-the lesson of true compassion. You see, when an atheist
 performs and act of charity, visits someone who is sick, helps someone in need
 and cares for the world, he is not doing so because of some religious teaching
 He does not believe that god commanded him to perform this act. In fact, he
 does not believe in God at all, so his acts are based on an inner sense of
 morality. And look at the kindness he can bestow upon others simply because
 he feels it to be right
 This means, the Master continued "that when someone reaches out to you for
 help, you should never say T pray that God will help you. Instead for the
 moment, you should become an atheist, imagine that there is no God who can
 help, and say I will help you
