In front of the Goose Girl (Gänseliesel) in Göttingen, Lower Saxony, Germany
In the background, “the Gänseliesel (English: Goose Girl, Goose Lizzy”, which is according to Wikipedia*, “a fountain which was erected in 1901 in front of the mediaeval town hall of Göttingen, Germany. Although rather small in size, the fountain is the most well-known landmark of the city. Today, it is an essential part of graduation celebrations, for every student who finishes a doctorate at the George August University Göttingen has to climb the fountain and kiss the statue of the goose girl.”
Unfortunately, I did not finish a doctorate at the local university to take a photo of me kissing “the Goose girl”. Therefore, photographing myself in front of it!

I came today upon the article below. Christians from Arab countries are fleeing and those remaining, are sometimes discriminated against and of course at other times killed. Israel presents itself, among other things, as a country, where all citizens have equal rights.
I hope that others would learn the importance of being open-minded and accepting minorities!!! In a perfect situation, accepting minorities and respecting them is not a favor, gift, or act of kindness of the majority… It is a right of each citizen to be treated equal under the law! Here in Germany for example, I have quickly and easily noticed how the foreigners are vehemently protected by the state. I wish it existed the same thing in a country like Egypt, where Copts, who are not immigrants, cannot easily have the simple right of building churches. Not to speak of churches being burnt or bombed!
