This year the Boston marathon was on pesach on my grandparents block so it was close to watch.
Walking to shul was a lot of fun because you can't cross the marathon and it was under heavy security. During the walk one of the police guards stopped me and asked me how old I was I told him that I was 13 and gonna be 14 in about six hours. I then asked the police officer who now was getting friendly with me why he asked he told me that he was told by higher authorities to ask people who are younger if they are under a certain age to get someone to walk with them.
In this week's parsha hashem tells moshe to tell the cohanim to do certain things to the carbanos and certain things not to do. Just like the cops got told from higher so did the Kohanim.
We have a mission from Hashem who is a higher authority to transform this world. The same way I got told by this police man based on higher authority, we have to use Hashem's commands in order to bring this golus to an end!
All the best
