Happy Mothers Day

When Stella came to me that morning and greeted me happily as always, I already noticed her restlessness, but also the anticipation of what was to come. It was her first child.

„I’m sure you’ll do well,“ I whispered in her ear.

Saving animals is not enough (3)

Tatiana stood there not knowing what to say. She wanted to grab Balduin and run away with him, but then she looked at the little one and was sure that despite all the rejection she received, here was a place for him to live comfortably and happily.
„Because he has nowhere else to go and when I look at your animals, I’m sure that you won’t throw anyone out on the street,“ Tatjana said, trying to make her voice sound as confident as possible.
„And what do you think, who will bear the costs. You?” the woman continued to ask.
„I can’t, but I could help. They certainly need someone to clean up or feed the animals,“ said Tatjana, now becoming more confident, because why should the owner of the homestead keep asking if she didn’t at least consider taking Balduin in?

Antibiotic Resistance endangers Human Life

“Take care of the people instead of the critters” is an argument that is tried again and again in order not to have to deal with the subject of animal rights. Many factors speak a clear language for the connection between animal and human rights activism. Enormous cultivation areas are required to feed the approximately 80,000,000,000 farm animals, which are preferably planted in rainforest areas, for which the corresponding forests and people have to give way, with all the known consequences. In addition, it is extremely inefficient to pass high-quality food through the animal before it is given to humans. Around 80% of the nutritional values are lost in this way. With a purely plant-based diet, no child in the world would have to die of hunger anymore. So, the connection is not that difficult to find. Another is the administration of antibiotics to animals whose bodies are eaten and antibiotic resistance and the formation of multi-resistant germs.

My Street – My Rules

Wilhelm Wurst was a good driver. At least he thought he was. Since he was a little boy, he dreamed of big, high-horsepower cars. He worked hard to be able to afford his dream car, a neat little house and a nice lady. But the most important thing was and remained the car. The house was there so that you could put your feet up in the evening and be served, the garage to be able to park your beloved car in it and the mistress on the front passenger seat. „I’m a happy man,“ he said when he entered a room with at least one person with a swollen chest that showed the half-open shirt. Casual, masculine, a gift for women, he was convinced of that.

When it happens to me

At some point, if you’ve lived long enough, you think you know everything, have seen everything, experienced everything, heard everything. Maybe there is a little nuance here and there, but when you hear the beginning of a story, then you already know about the end, until, yes, until your own story teaches you that things can always turn out very differently.

You crept into my heart

Actually, I’m the prince in the house. Not from the start, of course. When you come to your owners as a small puppy, the first thing to do is to sound out the situation. Smart dogs do that, and with all modesty, I can count myself to this breed. Not like others who storm into the house with over-zeal and impertinence and take possession of everything. People don’t like it that much. A puppy is looked after a lot, but something sticks in the memory. I, for my part, acted shyly.

Day of the Mother

Mother’s Day – Mother’s Day, her special day
Breakfast is made for her, optionally brought to bed
Ham roll, soft egg, coffee with milk
„How nice it is to have my children around me,“ she thinks,
“To be with each other, maybe we will go on a trip”.
And while she is allowed to be a mother
i.e. being allowed to be with her children,
does she not think about it
that there are millions of mothers in the world
where the togetherness at this very moment
is denied with their children,
forced to give birth
never be allowed to be mothers
for ham roll, soft egg and coffee with milk.

Free-Range Humans

Volker Matis, secretary of the chairman of the Club of the Ten Biggest, which includes the ten largest corporations in the world, was lucky to be able to take part in the secret summit. Within a very short time he had managed to make himself indispensable for his boss, Mr. Hademar Wilhelm-Cock. He carefully switched on the tape recorder to record his immediate superior’s opening speech.

The Christian Mendacity

„I am the way, the truth and the life“, John (14,6) says in his Gospel Jesus. The way we go, the truth we proclaim and the life we should respect. But most Christians, whether in the hierarchy up or down, do not care. But what do Christians have to do with Jesus? Aha, he went the way? That can be, but that is too much trouble for me. They hear the message, every Sunday, leave the church and do it very differently. For what lines their way is mendacity and death.

Easter – The Murder Festival

Easter, I always thought, and that’s how I learned it, is the feast of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Messiah, who came to earth to redeem people. So much for Christian teaching. That is why people flock together on the Day of Resurrection to praise the one who has overcome death, the last lamb that has been slaughtered. They sit there in awe, listening devoutly to the words of the priest who praises this victim and glorifies it. The church is dumb and humble, the preacher verbose, but while this final conquest of death is celebrated and marveled at, the good news is heard with a frozen expression, even the house of God, as it is so euphemistically called, is full of death than it is it is customary to bring our fellow creatures to this resurrection mass in dead form. There they stand in front of the altar, to which women have no access, the baskets with the bodies of the dead, neatly chopped into pieces and arranged. But not only that the priest doesn’t hunt them to hell with the murder victims, no, it is also blessed. In summary, while celebrating the resurrection and rejoicing that no more sacrifice is necessary, millions of victims are offered. God’s creation is buried while Jesus leaves it. An obvious contradiction that is not seen.
