A Song For Today

Shot Of The Day: March 1, 2015 (Part 1)





QOTD: Wir schweigen nicht. (We will not be silent)
— die Weiße Rose

Quote recommended for The Hip Pocket Guide To Offbeat Wisdom by William Sauer

Backstory: Die Weiße Rose (the White Rose) was a student group engaged in non-violent resistance to Adolf Hitler and the so-called Third Reich. Based at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (University of Munich), the six core members were arrested by the Gestapo in 1943 and executed after a show trial at the infamous Peoples Court. None of the group recanted their beliefs or apologized for actions taken against the Nazi State. At his execution, founding member Hans Scholl said, “Es lebe die Freiheit!” (Long live Freedom!) — TAG

Locale: The Archdiocese of Tomorrow (für Angela – alles Gute zum Geburtstag!)

The Last Exit

Shot Of The Day: February 25, 2015





QOTD: When the way comes to an end, then change. Having changed, you pass through.
