Look what I found on Aftenposten this morning! Now tell me HOW FAIR IS THAT:
“Almost 50 Afghan teenage girls are now in the hospital after gas-attack against a girl-school in city Charikar in the north of the country.
The director of the school organized evacuation, when he felt a strange smell in the building of the school, while the pupils felt dizzy and nauseous.
“I´m very sure that the one who is behind this happening is against the education of women. But I encourage the patents not to be afraid of it,- says Noor Jahan laying on the hospital bed in Reuters.
She is one of 46 girls who is attanded at the local hospital.”
This kind of happning has become more common in Afghanistan lately.
Last year a group of school girls where attacked by the group of men who protested against women´s rights for education throwing the acid into those school girls faces.
Well, that´s not the only problem for women in Afghanistan. After husband dies, woman loses all her chances for more or less “normal” living. It´s even worse if woman doesn´t have a male relative. So most of widows are left to live in fear for ever after…
Take a look inside A Man´s World . Is there any chance for those women to experience normal life ever ??? Is it fair to live and to die for men? We can´t let it be this way! World must fight for those lost souls!!!

While the Catholic Church has been celebrating the Easter praying and talking to God, I spend more time thinking about the religion. Let me notice that I don´t consider myself to be a religious person. But I am a believer. It means that I don´t pray, don´t go to church, don´t believe in priests speaches, don´t waste time talking, don´t pretend… But I do believe in God, not the one that expects me to stand on my knees in front of it´s holy “face” though, but the God who wants me to be kind and do “good” instead of talking. So my Easter i spent as any other day of my life, dedicating some hours of my free time to help someone in need. Well, I´m not a saint and don´t want to be one, I´m not looking for acceptance from the church (God, no!) . I simply do what I can to make this world a better place to be. And I know I´m a good person, because that´s what I choose to be.
Here is the question: what is faith actually about???
Why do people waste time praying to God if it´s in their own hands to help, to give and to change the world? What is this whole church mess about if it´s not about lazy “church people” with sharp toungues that expect the God to do their human job…
Why do many people go to stupid extreems instead of simply doing “good”?
What is you faith??? Might it look like this?

Here is shortly about something I found in Aftenposten :
... in 2002 17-year old boy was buried in Vaalerenga church. His coffin was tagged by his friends, because the dead boy was a tagger (graffiti artist). It was just one example for non-traditional coffins that have been used for burials in Oslo. And even though the majority still prefers traditional burials, when a relative has got a special will one tries to fulfill it. So nowadays people also can choose amoung bigger range of coffins. “The possible reason for it is to make the whole ceremony more personal. The choice of coffins can be one of the ways to do it,”- says Gunnar Hammersmark.
Here come some coffin design offers from Svanholm firm in Trondheim

By the way the price of one coffin like this might be between 5000 and 10000 NOK
(02.03.2009: 1 USD = 6,75 NOK . Do the math!)
So… where one of those coffins might take us?
… to a better world or something ???
