Herpes 1how Its Spread


Shema '

You who live safe
In your warm houses,
You who find, returning in the evening
warm food and food friends
Consider if this is a man,
What works in the mud
Who knows no peace
Who fights for a bread
Who dies for a yes or a no.
Consider if this is a woman,
Without hair and unnamed
no more strength to remember
eyes empty and cold the womb
Like a frog in winter.
forget that this was:
Remember these words.
Carve them in your heart
When at home because,
bed, rising:
Repeat them to your children.
O there undone the house,
illness impede you,
May your children twist their faces from you.

(From Primo Levi, "For now uncertain, but it is also the epigraph that opens" If this is a man ")

And these words conjure up images as horrific we must learn not to forget.

And to keep reminding I refer to this link
The cure Andrea Josephine and Roman Herzog, dealing with awkward stories related to past and recent memories
always Andrea Josephine and Roman Herzog
