    In Germany there we habe a century flood this days. People are already drowned, and for our small country it is a big disaster.

    In this moment, everybody should be happy to be alive and healthy.

    Even the largest industrial nations can not do anything against nature.

    Thanks for posting this Leopold

    Sometimes we get so wrapped up into our own issues that we forget that we all need to stop and think about others who may be suffering tragedies as well.

    Thoughts and prayers to the families and loved ones of all involved.

    Natural disasters are devastating. At this moment in some part of the world a village or a small country are being affected by one, we are so caught up on our problems and self-pettiness that most of the time don’t even care to take a moment and pray for them.

    Thank you for your post Leopold.

    Hello,

    Jiroemon Kimura was born at 19. April 1897 in Japan. He was 116 years old and the oldest person in the world.

    Kimura was the father of seven children, five are still alive. There are also 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

    Kimura had witnessed the reigns of four emperors. He worked for 45 years for the post, before he retired in 1965.

    He died early Wednesday morning peacefully of old age.

    Whether in the end he had a dignified life, it can hardly form an opinion:



    The "Club of centenarians" is growing rapidly in Japan. Meanwhile, more than 50,000 residents of the country are more than a hundred years old, about 10,000 more than just three years ago.

    Even the "new" oldest person in the world comes from Japan: it is the 115-year-old Misao Okawa:



    The oldest person who ever lived, according to the Guinness book was the Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment.



    She died in 1997 and was exactly 122 years and 164 days old.

    For me, the question arises, when I see the 1st two videos: "Could they still live out their free will?"

    I personally wouldn’t like to live to be a 100. If I had a choice, I would like to live up to the time where I could still look after myself and die peacefully in my sleep. That for me would be the perfect ending

    We are overpopulating the earth as it is, and overusing the rescourses. Floods and hurricanes etc. is natures way of even the score abit. Not that it makes it less tragic for those who loses someone.

    You're right. Simple truth.

    In some regions everything destroyed by the water, that don't want to leave.
    Many levees did not hold.
    Livelihoods destroyed.
    Many families like the women at the beginning of the video take it already the second time.
    Poor people.
    And not forget the poor animals.
    No water, no life.
    But no one can stop water when it comes to revenge.
    It is the heritage of humanity, that haunt us more and more hurricanes, floods and plagues.

    That is sad Leopold,

    I saw one article earlier today where they are estimating the costs at 8 Billion or more, that ranks right up there with some of the larger hurricanes we have seen in Florida.

    The trick: Our Federal Chancellor Mrs. Merkel have promised it!

    But suddenly no one knows where the money will come...

    Result: New borrowing and charity appeals every day in TV.

    22. September 2013 = Parliamentary elections (for the Bundestag)

    Water is gone until then...

    Victims are quickly forgotten...

    Who still talks about Fukushima?

    I am very sorry...
    So I started this topic.
    And so my words today will go into nightfall.
    A topic in order to make clear that there are other things in the world that are important.

    For example to live and let live.

    I am very sorry...
    ...that this is my last posting in this forum before taking a long time out.

    Because what happened today is so inconceivable und beyond the pale. I want to show my mirror image backbone, and beyond that, it is a matter of culture and decency.

    I wrote a nice user a donation post for hundredths received „Thank You“.
    https://www.gpwa.org/forum/ok-promot...tml#post723671
    It was an individual consecration.
    For him personally!
    Who can assume the right to distort and censor an individual consecration?
    Behind the writers back!
    Who?

    And the next bombshell:

    A video in the domation posting was censored.
    Not just any video.

    Richard Strauss, a leading German composer of the late Romantic and early modern eras worldwide known for his operas and tone peoms e.g. "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" was censored in my donation and by association the Berlin Philharmonic.

    Berlin Philharmonic

    Berlin Philharmonic is an orchestra based in Berlin, Germany. In 2006, a group of ten European media outlets voted the Berlin Philharmonic number three on a list of "top ten European Orchestras".

    In 2008 it was voted the world's number two orchestra in a survey among leading international music critics organized by the British magazine Gramophone.


    But here in the GPWA forum a moderator assume the right to censor one of the most reputalbe and award-winning orchestra of the world?

    A moderator, that assume the right to censor one of the well known opera composer ever?

    Sorry Anthony, but that's disrespectful.

    So many money will be earned in the casino industry...
    Casinos generating Billions...
    Webmasters making good deals...
    Players are lucky at the slot machine or roulette wheel sometimes...

    Don't forget the peopole who have no home, no country, no protection, living in fear and hopelessness.

    http://www.unhcr.org

    German readers can donate for as low as 1 Euro per month: http://www.uno-fluechtlingshilfe.de

    36 Euro for an emergency shelter.
    80 Euro for 20 warming up blankets.
    125 Euro for a health package.
    450 Euro to build water pipes.

    What have you, dear reader, earned last month?

    Having a home, can eat and drink and must not escape from your country.
    As much warm blankets as you want...

    Don't forget the people who have nothing!

    I am very sorry...

    ...that Nelson Mandela is no longer with us and that neither a single word has been written yesterday or today in this forum about him, one of the most known fighters against racism of all time. An older South Africa thread exist for writing.

    Some people say, Sharpeville massacre made Mandela to a "terrorist".
    But then the same people have to call the French Resistance fighters in World War II as terrorists too.

    Mandela was hold in prison for over 26 years (!) with no justification for purely political reasons.

    And sometimes history is unbelievable: The US government did not remove the name Nelson Mandela from its terrorism watch list until 2008.

    Yes, Africa is far away from most of us.
    But racism is still present and can be seen everywhere, perhaps in your directly neighbourhood.

    The Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nelson Mandela died aged 95 in Johannesburg, after a long illness. At least one post should be dedicated to him here in this forum.

    that's fine, but it's private.
    The biggest group reading here is the audience, visiting the forum as guests. They can't see the thread.
    My opinion is, that in such historical events it's better to write for the public and not only for a handpicked group in a private area.

    Maximilian Schell, one of the greatest actor of all time, who won the best actor Oscar 1962 for his performance in "Judgment at Nuremberg" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz2USfzaCUE), dies in the night from friday to saturday at 83.

    The international respected actor, producer and director -Swiss & Austria citizen- was active until 2008. His unique presence and unsurpassed charm remains unforgotten.

    A black weekend!

    Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has died today at age 46!

    He was the leading actor in one of the best casino/gambler movies ever: "Owning Mahowny" (2003) - based on a true story!

    Watch the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH8mh8e8L_c

    And don't miss the movie next time!

    So much bad news these days.

    Today, Misao Okawa aus Osaka/Japan is celebrating the 116. birthday.

    She's oldest women on Earth, born 5. March 1898 and I am sure, her three children, four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren are coming to party.
