Tisha B'Av 2015 / 5775

It's Tisha B'Av, a very hot day in Israel. As we fast and mourn the destruction of our Holy Temple I wonder what will it take for us to wake up and make the changes necessary to merit the final Temple?
Listening to Kinnot read this morning, the verses are tragic and devastating and yet, 2000 years later, we have not changed. The issues mentioned by our prophets are the same ones we deal with day in and day out. Do we have what it takes to bring Moshiach? Will we stop our stiff necked arrogant defiance and start to live life G-d's way?

I'd love to write something inspiring but I am left with wondering, do we have what it takes? Can we do it? Can we really bring Moshiach or will it take an open Miracle from Hashem to bring about the necessary changes and wake us up once and for all?
