Hebrews 2:14-18, NIV
Since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity so that by His death He might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels He helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason He had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that He might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because He himself suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted.

Bangladeshis in Los Angeles

by EJD

(This account is fictional but it is based in reality)
Lifting the window blinds, Senjuti saw the small patch of grass in front of her tiny apartment turn from a sunlit pale green to a darker shade as the sun made its final descent for the day. Soon yellow street lamps would turn on. Cars would pull into tiny, designated carports, and people would hurry into their homes, without so much as looking at the people they walk past. It was 7 p.m. before she realized it. The small grassy courtyard stood empty and alone, reflecting how her life had turned out.
Senjuti spoke little English. The only time she dared venture outside her home was when her husband accompanied her shopping or going to the mosque. Her days were spent cooking and cleaning and making long distance calls to a family and community whose warmth and affection accentuated this cold isolation she endured. She loved her husband who did his very best to make her comfortable, but he had to work long hours and often during the weekends.
