From the book HaYom Yom, from Day to Day, for the hebrew date that fell on December 27 this year...
Hearken and hear Israel, this is the time marked for the redemption by Mashiach.
The sufferings befalling us are the birth-pangs of Mashiach.
Israel will be redeemed only through Teshuva (repentence or, better, reconnecting with G-d).
Have no faith in the false prophets who assure you of glories and salvation after the War.
Remember the word of G-d, "Cursed is the man who puts his trust in man, who places his reliance for help in mortals, and turns his heart from G-d" (Yirmiyahu 17:5).
Return Israel unto the Eternal your G-d; prepare yourself and your family to go forth and receive Mashiach, whose coming is imminent.

Groaning by itself won't do a bit of good.
A groan is only a key to open the heart and eyes, so as not to sit there with folded arms, but to plan orderly work and activity, each person wherever he can be effective, to campaign for bolstering Torah, spreading Torah and the observance of Mitzvot.
One person might do this through his writing, another with his oratory, another with his wealth.
