One of the great mistakes in quotes is that we build our own future and that we are the result of our choices. Is it so? In many cases yes but in others I don’t think so. Imagine that you fall in love with person A and that that person doesn’t love you or already has someone else. You can’t choose who you fall in love with or that you will not be in love with that person anymore. Through my entire life I met people telling me “I married my partner but he/she is not the love of my life. When I see my love I feel an electricity shock going all over me.”
For me the best example is that when I was young I wanted to be a jetliner pilot. I wanted to transport people across the World, I wanted to fly and to be free. With time I had to realize that sciences and myself just don’t go along and that my talents are in speaking foreign languages. I could choose to keep on trying and trying or to divert my efforts into another direction. I did that but flying is still my dream. It’s a dream that will never come true.
A few years ago I was able to fly a Cessna just for a few seconds and I will never forget the great sensation I felt. I had to accept the fact that I will never fly people to other countries but the taste got me, even if for just a few seconds.
This is a very interesting article that needs to be read by everyone interested in geo-politics and history.
23 juli 1993, acht kinderen vermoord op de voorgevel van de Candelaria-kerk. Het gaat om zwarte straatkinderen die, vermoedelijk in opdracht van managers van nabijgelegen hotels, door een groep politiemannen zijn neergeschoten. Toen men achter deze informatie kwam, werd het onderzoek meteen stopgezet. De overgebleven daders werden vrijgelaten. Tot zover de kennis over de gebeurtenis […]

The Brexit vote didn’t surprise me, at least now we know for good what lies ahead of us. The British never wanted to play by the rules and they never did. Europe always had to deny itself to please them and that is not the way to be.
I am a strong pro-Europe but for many years now I think that we are having the Europe of the corporations while we all want a Europe for its citizens. How can we have a real European Union when are member-states that refuse the Euro, when we have still roaming costs when calling outside of our country, when school diplomas aren’t recognized or when you need to ask permission to live in another member-state? How can we talk about Europe when one country stubbornly keeps driving on the left side and continues to use its own measure system?
The UK voted for a 19th Century project that lead us to a few catastrophic decines, sooner or later they will realize that but then it will be too late. I am pro-Europe, for a Europe where the citizen counts, where there is unity, not this kind of Europe that we are having now.
