Hollande pays tribute to Nobel winning holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel

Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it.  We must protect it by changing the world.”   —   Elie Wiesel

(A simple Cryptoquote to start the week!  How can we change a world that seems to be increasingly hateful and polarized?  We can try to counter all the negativity with love and understanding, but when the various haters, and guilt mongers get under our skin we’re more likely to react in kind.  So, it becomes a vicious cycle.  We all need to check our emotions, and try to reconcile with those who we find offensive.  Always making demands, and shaming people into insincere apologies, is only making matters worse.  Wake up, people!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The Holocaust and 'Why?' Elie Wiesel's provocative answer. - Chicago Tribune

Hope is like peace.  It is not a gift from God.  It is a gift only we can give one another.”   —   Elie Wiesel

(Works for me!  Religions have caused plenty of wars, but that’s just various men’s interpretation of “God’s will”.  He/She doesn’t start the wars, so he/she isn’t responsible for any peace.  People need to take more responsibility for their actions.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.  Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”   —   Elie Wiesel

(Which is why there are so many protestors of police brutality these days.  The corporate media would love them to go away, but they won’t.  Especially, when a new occurences of police “misconduct” happen every few weeks . . . somewhere in this country of ours.  Be well, be safe . . . and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Then I guess there are just far too many stingy, cynical and greedy bastards out there!  Because, we seem to be short of both.  Luckily, for yer uncle, hope springs eternal in the human breast.)   —   YUR

Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it.  We must protect it by changing the world.”   — Elie Wiesel

(And, we could probably go a long way to changing the world by bringing a whole lot less life into it.  Human life, that is.  But also cattle and cats and dogs, and such.  Creatures that tend to come with people.  Over population and over consumption is resulting in a huge strain on our natural resources.  We are polluting the world so badly that we are literally shitting where we eat! Daily stories of food born illnesses, the disappearance of honey bees, white nose syndrome killing off brown bats, whales and dolphins beaching themselves, birds dropping out of the sky, a worldwide increase in deadly allergies and autism and Alzheimer’s disease, resistant bacterial infections, and ever-increasing deadly strains of influenza, increased occurrences of tornadoes, floods, forest fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions . . . shall I go on!   I can see a direct correlation between over-consumption, due to the world’s human population, and climate change.  I don’t subscribe to any of the head-in-the-sand assertions that this is all due to sunspot activity and so-called “natural cycles”.  Pushing the limits of capacities has measurable consequences.  This damn the torpedoes attitude is damning all life on earth, which just happens to include humanity.  Some people think we’ve already passed the tipping point, but I’d like to believe that we still have the ability – though the clock is surely ticking – to turn things around.  We just need the cognizance . . . and the will.)   — YUR
