#RefugeesWelcome

Das Thema ist zu wichtig, als das man es einfach so vergessen oder wegschieben sollte!

Wir haben alle unseren Teil dazu beizutragen. Verschließt die Augen nicht, vor diesem kleinen Mob, der zu viel Aufmerksamkeit bekommt!

Denkt an die vielen Helfer, die, die Spielzeug für Kinder spenden oder Kleidung!

Die Leute lassen ALLES hinter sich. Haben kein Dach über den Kopf, meist nur eine kleine Tasche mit dem Nötigsten.

Und dann gibt es hier in Deutschland diese paar Leute, die es einfach nicht verstehen können.

I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.

The biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make while doing this. I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of the three on them sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4, and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in a hurry to get on to the next things: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.

- Anna Quindlen, Loud and Clear

just to be alive on this fresh morning in the broken world. I beg of you

Oh do you have time
to linger
for just a little while
out of your busy

and very important day
for the goldfinches
that have gathered
in a field of thistles

for a musical battle,
to see who can sing
the highest note,
or the lowest,

or the most expressive of mirth,
or the most tender?
Their strong, blunt beaks
drink the air

as they strive
melodiously
not for your sake
and not for mine

and not for the sake of winning
but for sheer delight and gratitude –
believe us, they say,
it is a serious thing

just to be alive
on this fresh morning
in the broken world.
I beg of you,

do not walk by
without pausing
to attend to this
rather ridiculous performance.

It could mean something.
It could mean everything.
It could be what Rilke meant, when he wrote:
You must change your life.

~ Mary Oliver, Invitation

And for the first time in a long time I fell asleep with a smile on my face, all thanks to you. Because even in the toughest moments in life, you’re there.
