THEY SHALL NOT WIN

Friday the 13th. 9/11. You cannot deny that THEY have a feeling for symbolism - from Bad Luck Day to the emergency number 911. THEY are the ones that profoundly hate our way of life, our civilisation, our values, our wealth. THEY are the ones that divide the world in Black & White, in THEM & the Rest. THEY are the ones that believe that THEY are fighting a Holy War against the Rest. This is not a war between countries, religions or race. This is a Power Game. A 'game' that most likely will go on forever. As the quest for Power will never cease. The rules of the Game THEY ‘play’, change. The names THEY use change: Al-QAEDA, Islamic State, the next one may call themselves New Caliphate. THEY are very smart. THEY know they cannot win the conventional way (although they will try), but using budget weapons Fear & Terror THEY can disrupt our way of life easy and cheap. And prolong it for a very long time.

Paris will not be the last time THEY will strike. More will follow. The question is not will we be able to prevent another Parisian Friday the 13th. The question is will we prevent them the psychological success in disrupting our way of life, our society by feeding us with fear in living our lives – like THEY have done with some many others forcing those to become refugees.

I hope that Paris will not be remembered as the day that THEY were successful but as the day we proved THEM that THEY cannot win. Ever. As we will not give up our Way of Life, our values. As every attack will make us stronger, more united, more aware and more appreciative of our Way of Life, our values, our society.

My deepest feelings go to the families and friends of the victims of the attack. Their grief is hardly to be imagined by us. Our best response to their loss is to stand up for our Way of Life and against the Fear.

THEY shall not win. Because I won’t let THEM. I will not let Fear rule my life. I will continue to live the Way of Life I choose. I will continue to see other people as other members of my World, regardless if they are from The Netherlands, Australia, Iraq, Syria, Curacao, Colombia, USA. Regardless if they are Christian, Muslim or Jew. Regardless if they agree with my views or not. I will continue to raise my children with our values so that they respect and appreciate what we live for and that they do not take it for granted. Our freedom, our Way of Life is something we will always need to fight for.

THEY shall not win. Because we won’t let them. And hopefully one day THEY will realize that it is GAME OVER.

Dit is wat ik noem een levensreddende doorbraak. Door de bloedprop in hun hersenen met een katheter snel weg te halen, raken minder mensen die getroffen zijn door een herseninfarct blijvend invalide.

Why You Hate Work - Very interesting article from Tony Schwartz of The Energy Project. Read it and find out on what side of the "Have or Have Not At Work' equation you are. Maybe you will ask why you accept that your work is not what you want it to be.

Internet: nice, handy, dangerous. Read this interview with a  'black hat' hacker to see how easy it is to hack websites, misuse social media like Facebook in order to blackmail your company or raid your personal financial accounts. Read, shiver and adjust your passwords with even stronger passwords....

Very interesting. Especially if you are thinking about redesigning your website or the website of your clients. Although 2013 is already nearly 5 months old, it's never too late to read such articles
