      And it's not always just about kissing two lips... and two lips kissing. It's about kissing life. Grabbing life passionately. Each and every moment. And to kiss it with all your heart. And with both hands. Fully embraced. "A kiss is something you need both hands for." Mark Twain The kiss... Always remember the kiss.

    One of the only three photographs documenting the murder of the victims and the cremation of the bodies in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. The pictures were taken by stealth by a member of the Sonderkommando and smuggled out by the international underground operating in the camp. The picture shows the cremation pits ... which were used when the crematoria in the camp were not functioning. A former Sonderkommando member, Alter Fajnzylberg, later described how the picture was taken at crematorium V.

    Jesus was 33 years old when Roman guards marched Him down the path that lead to the cross. It was called the Via Dolorosa, translated the "Way of Suffering." The crowds were all around and screamed and jeered. It was a sport you see. Spain has its bull-fighting and the American continent has its dog and cock fighting in some hide-away corner with its screaming fans. This had become a popular blood-sport. Bets were flying, people all wanting to see the torture and how long this man would take ...
