Human rights charter
This document is something which should be posted in each class room.
Think people in western world are not aware of the fact, that we not always had such a free and good live and that our rights are built on thoughts of people. People who are continuously trying to improve human live.
Some people think the standards of the so called “western” live are build on catholic values. But that is totally wrong. The human rights we have today are build on humanism and modern people who have a modern view about man and world.
Think this 30 article of the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” are the modern “10 commandments”. But with the difference that they are not commandments but rights.
I have posted them onto the wall of our kids room. When they are old enough to read the articles, they will ask, what it means.
G. W. Bush
I really hoped that the Republicans will loose these elections and was shoked when I heard the day before on television that it will not be so sure as expected. But then it went all OK for me.
The Democrats won the absolute majority in both houses and Mr. Bushs hands are bound now.
I’m so proud about the european union, really so proud. Proud about the freedom to go to any country within the european union, from Poland to Italy, to Spain, Greek, Danmark, Germany, France, Ireland and so on. Proud about the new common money, the Euro, proud about the fallen borders.
I have been living in Salzburg for about ten years, a very beautiful and lovely city in Austria just near the border to Germany. Sometimes we went to Germany for playing squash and had to cross the border. Once my friend had forgotten his passport, so we were not allowed to go to the court.
In the year 1999, I think they shut down the border. They really shut it. All the police men there suddenly fanished. You now can go to Germany and back without even beeing aware of crossing a border. There are a lot of German people in Salzburg now and you can travel around as you like it.
Now, a few years later I wonder how it was possible to have borders between so many countries in europe. How much progress it is for the european people to have this great union.
Sometimes I go to Greece for holiday. I really like Greece. And there you have the same money as in Austria, that is wunderful. Sometimes I go to Italy for holiday. I also like this country. And there you have also the same money…
It is amazing, for me it is the best political thing that happend in europe since Alexander the great who unified the ancient greece with the old orient.
