when we dip the parsley into the salt water we are told that we taste the tears that our ancestors wept during slavery. But why don’t we taste the tears of happiness? Why only the tears of misery? After all, the tears of happiness are what signified the hope that we are a free people. Good always comes at the end. If it’s not good, it’s not the end. The Israelites made it out of Egypt together, so let’s taste the tears of happiness, together.
