make love not war

Am sick in my bed which is always a good time to remember the real  purpose of life. Well, I was dreaming of flowers, San Francisco, my boyfriend, my family and lots of animals. Precisely, we were in San Francisco in a park surrounded by gentle animals (yeah even the animals were gentle), playing the guitar,  singing some songs and dancing around. The atmosphere was enriched with love and seemed to be like in a dreams (in the end it was a dream but it felt so real)...
I woke up and read some things about San Francisco (where I'm going to go in 2 years for a semester or in 3 years for good - yeah, I know it's a long time till then and many things can happen...but it's one of my dreams. However, THAT I'm going to SF is for sure). All those researches made me come across the Woodstock festival in 1969 (yeah sure, everyone knows the famous Hippie festival in the 60ies but do you REALLY know it?). I found out some really interesting things. For example, did you know, that the festival costed 2 Million $ and that the sponsors were bankrupted by the festival but they saved the movie rights and the documentary about Woodstock ten years later made more than their money back. Furthermore, in the beginning Woodstock wasn't mend to be a free event. 186'000 tickets were sold before hand and organisers only anticipated about 200'000 would show up in total. When it became apparent that they were way off in their estimations the fences around the event were ceremonially cut down. This step helped solidify the events vibes of peace, love, and inclusiveness and also caused a lot more concert goers to show up. In total about half a million people in attendance at Woodstock. 
Meanwhile, mainstream media wanted to report the worst of the festival. The event took place on a extremely hot weekend, torrential rain transformed the event side into a giant mud puddle, drug use was massive, and the presents of unsanitary conditions and food shortages were all angles they wanted to play up. Ironically, many sources today say that the amount of drugs consumed at the event where reason for a lack of violence. 
To sum up, we should all live together in the countryside, listen to rock music, take some drugs, make some love and celebrate peace (But always remember "safer sex"). 
Yeah, I reckon that would be a good life. Probably a small farm with livestock and horses somewhere in Cali would be enough for me.
In this spirit I wish you all a good week and lots of love, peace and rock'n'roll.

Not Only the human being has to suffer but also human dependent animals. Who in the end can't decide to either life in freedom or being food production machines of a sick system. 

Despite all endurance for many in the relief camps every help comes too late (first of all older people and children).

Some might find it hard to understand that this is for real, that it is actually HAPPENING NOW. Also that is has to go that far, for us to finally realise that there is clearly something wrong happening in our wonderfully peaceful world and try to do something. But it actually is FACT. People on the other side of the world are starving to death. They're simply unable to do something against their poorness and helplessness. They're fleeing from death to death because when they decide to go for the relief camps they accept a way over hundreds of kilometers through the droughty desert in the blazing sun without water or anything to eat - but as they'd die if they stayed anyway, this cruel way is their only way out (80% of those are children and women of which's children are dying 300 per day). 
     In earnest, we, the people from the western civilisation, are guilty. Due to the fact that we yaw for money, for power, for glory to upgrade our low self-esteem (which is only that low because of the sick system we got) and feel like someone who's important for the world and required by others. Well, yes, nice...isn't it? 
    To sum up, people with low self-esteem caused by the system they live in, who literally have everything and more, create such horrible (nearly that horrible it can't even been couched) situations and make other people suffer their whole life. It's us killing all this poor people, it's us looking at those pictures in newspapers and TV saying "omg, that's so terrible" but in the end doing nothing. No, we're just happy being who we are and not being one of those suffering struggling through the desert with little hope left not to die. 
     Somehow we need to raise our voice against this system and raise our voice to express our discontentment! I'm sure that there are some clevers out there knowing that just WE can actually change the state of things. Let's fight for human rights, let's fight for fair division of the food, and let's fight for our world we are destroying with nearly every breath we take. It has to happen something and it has to happen NOW.

Groovy Baby

Stumbled upon this absolutely brilliant rock band the other day. Why can't rock be still like that? They're pretty good! Love the outfit and everything. Have you seen the drummer? How amazing is he?!? He's singing and playing the drums - kinda exhausting, isn't it? Definitely persevering! He sort of reminds me of my uncle with his massive headdress. Damn sure this band is wicked!
