The Voice of Our Ancestors

The Voice of Our Ancestors by Heinrich Himmler

While the rest of the world may rightly moan about the ways in which the miserable Covid-induced lockdowns have affected our lives, spare a thought for the 2 million Palestinians imprisoned in Israel’s brutal and illegal blockade.

“We’re all Palestinians now,” some say, as people around the world are under Covid-19 lockdown and rendered jobless. While the reference is apt, Palestinians in Gaza have been under the most severe lockdown in the world for 14 long years.

My sentiments precisely.

A song and a quote for you …

I don’t know if you are familiar with Carlos, David, Sebastian and Urs …

Il Divo – O Holy Night (In Mérida)

“Every one of us, on New Year’s Eve, can be a little bit magical …

For this, all you need to do is treat your parents with love and gratefulness, give your children and families the utmost love and care, respect your work colleagues and your friendships.

Stand up for justice and the truth, be merciful to those who require your help – and that’s the secret to being magic.

May all your dreams come true – pure thoughts and kind intentions.

May every household be blessed with joy and love.”

… President V. V. Putin
