my sister gave birth to a beautiful boy wednesday the 14th of March at 13:50.
he was 54cm long, 3882gram and the headsize 35. they've named him 'noa'
..suddenly my sister is a mother, and she and tommy has their own little family. my parents are grandparents, my brothers are uncles and i.. i am aunt Regine.

the poor thing is having some starting problems in life.. he still need some help to breath. he also has a lung-infection and is on antibiotics. he has to stay in an incubator for 5 more days before he can go home. Get well little precious.

i was thinking the other day about hair, and that the weird
thing about it, is that people will touch other people's hair.. you'll
actually kiss another human being, right on the head. but, if one of those hairs
should somehow be able to get out of that skull, and go off on its own, it is
now the vilest, most disgusting thing that you can encounter. the same hair.
people freak out. i freak out.
"there was a hair, in the the egg salad!"

Death penalty

There are 38 states with the death penalty, and 12 states without the death penalty. 24 of the 38 states in the US allow the use of death penalty for crimes committed under the age of 18.
Fairness requires that people who break the same law under similar circumstances should meet with the same punishment; however the justice system is not consistent. Statistics show that a black man who kills a white person is 11 times more likely to receive the death penalty than a white man who kills a black person. And blacks who kill blacks have even less to worry about. It’s almost like we kind of say “oh, well, he needed to be killed anyhow.”

The one’s who get executed have truly done very bad things, and they of course deserve punishment, but not the death penalty! That is too kind, they should be sent to jail for a lifetime, sit and regret the things they have done. It is too easy to kill them, it’s a bigger punishment and greeve for the victim’s family and close ones if they kill him; but a safety to the society to know that he’s never coming back.
Some people think they deserve to die, they want the criminals away from earth, to disappear and never come back, cause of the terrible things they have done. Many people think it’s the right punishment and they think that the death penalty can be deterrence against serious crime. And sometimes maybe convicted murderers don’t want to live anymore anyway. Therefore society should literally interpret the “Eye for an eye” principle when an individual takes a life; society’s moral balance will remain upset until the killer’s life is also taken.
Christians believe that the death penalty is wrong,”You shall not kill”, even your enemy. They think that criminals can regret their sins in jail and decide to surrender to God and ask for forgiveness.

It is sad when someone has been executed, and they have found out afterwards that the person they killed is innocent. But if you are innocent and not getting the death penalty, but jail, you have a better chance to be released and believed some day, and continue your life.
“No matter how careful courts are, the possibility of perjured testimony, mistaken honest testimony, and human error remain all too real. We have no way of judging how many innocent persons have been executed, but we can be certain there were some.” J. Marshall (death penalty information center.)

Do we have the right to decide the kind of lives others can or cannot live? We find someone guilty of murder and sentence him to death; does that not make murderers out of ourselves? Can justice justify our acts? Those who assist in the death penalty are they not partners in crime? Is the death penalty a “Cruel and unusual” punishment or is it now a necessary tool in war of crime? That’s the kind of questions we should ask ourselves. I think we never will agree on this subject, there will always be people for, and against the death penalty. It has been banned in many countries, in the United States, an earlier move to eliminate capital punishment has now been reversed, and more and more states are resorting to capital punishment for serious offences such as murder.

An eye for an eye, a life for a life.
