Dear
It is a privilege and honor for me to share my thoughts with you today as the recipient of the 2021 Honorary Degree in Environmental Arts and Peace Sciences from the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA).
This year presented a total of 15 candidates from 7 countries: India, Pakistan, South Africa, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and the United States.
All the Worlds Children congratulates these Recipients as human rights defenders, environmentalists, artists committed to peace, and creators of initiatives for reconciliation, non-violence, justice, solidarity and peace, at local, national and international levels.
The CLEVELAND NATIONAL PEACE PLAN is being implemented and it is needed that since people have been working in many unimaginable ways, it’s time we begin to heal and overcome - together - in solidarity.  The 2021 Recipients have all succeeded in developing particular approaches incorporating Iceality that integrates justice, economics, culture and technology in one way or another to meet the challenges of today's societies.
Their holistic and collective initiatives will become lighthouses that mobilize one's hope to build a future American Culture of Peace with the Great American Peace Trail. They bring with them a world of tolerance and harmony that builds relationships between People, their Environment with respect to the Fauna and Flora living here: the Worlds Children.
This distinction is unique to Cleveland and is designed to recognize efforts that Northeast Ohio is the global home of the Environmental Arts Movement and will serve as an ongoing reminder of achievements through Iceality in making Northeast Ohio the 'Universal Cradle for a Culture of Peace' for all Living Things that will be an inspiration for future generations to follow.

The WCPM would like to thank everyone who participated in this edition for their openness to the new approach that is more collaborative than competitive. We are pleased to offer visibility to all your community peace initiatives, whether known or not. The only objective of this prize is to make known a maximum of initiatives and artisans of peace to the general public, and this goes beyond any form of competition! We remind you that as we announced in a previous e-mail, in this way we try to give greater visibility to each prizewinner and we invite you to expand the solidarity network of the artisans and peacemakers that the needs to highlight.

With warm good wishes,
Peace Friend,


Ambassador Renate Jakupca

Patriotism makes you feel alive. To the great people, living for the country must be the first goal. A patriot never choose money over country benefit. Be bold, a bright star, and brave heart. Always do proud of your country irrespective of its greatness by embracing your country's art, culture and values. Listen to local music and watch local movies. Make it a priority to visit your own country's destinations before traveling to other countries. Youth can also teach and encourage children to love and respect their countries, in order to grow their national pride. The true measure of a Patriot is when a person lays down their life with the knowledge that those he saves... will never know.

As most of you know by now, the Great Hank Haller passed away recently and his funeral last Friday was well attended by members of the Cleveland German Community. Hank was a good member of the Cleveland German Radio Show and he will be greatly missed.  But, he has a lot of family and friends that will keep
his memory alive.  One of them, is his cousin, Paul Weber from Canada, who is also an outstanding member of the Cleveland German Radio Show. Paul requested one of Hank's favorite songs, On the Wings of a Silver Bird, to be played in memory of Hank Haller.  This is for you Hank! (David plays song)

We have some holiday snip its that we would like to pass on to you.
The mistletoe girls are getting ready for the holidays and hanging mistletoe secretly in the clubs.  
If you would like a map of where the mistletoe is, you can get it from the Baron, Dan Hilt, or the debonair, Hubert Haller, or multi-talented, Mike Beck.
Maps are $1 each and the proceeds go to a worthy cause.  And what is that Renate?

 

Me....I think they are going to use it to buy chapstick for the girls.
and they said the lipstick of the season is going to be luscious cherry!

 

And I have a note here from Susie... she wants me to tell Mary to stop dancing so close to her husband.  In fact, stop dancing with him completely!

 

All right, we have one more from Casey....she is making eggnog and wants to know what liquor goes into the mix.

 

Me.....we always made it with Stroh's Rum from Austria. While brandy is the most traditional alcohol to add in for eggnog, according to traditional recipes, you can also use a mixture of dark rum and Cognac. If you like your eggnog a little more boozy, you can also add bourbon, but we recommend sticking to rum and Cognac to preserve the 'nog's flavors. but you can use almost anything.  
In Austria, there is Eierlikör which is like Eggnog and this egg-based liqueur is both strong and sweet with different aromas like vanilla. Eierlikör can be enjoyed on its own or used in other cocktails – such as German Eierpunsc

 

We are going to end with a holiday joke for everyone.  So, everybody get ready!  Are you ready Nattie?    Yes I am!

 

Knock Knock......
Who's there?

Merry Christmas to Everyone!  Both say

Word of the Week: Schneidersitz

 

When you’re sitting cross-legged, what do you call that position? In English, you might say you are “sitting Indian style”, but in German, that is the so-called Schneidersitz (“tailor’s sitting position”).

 

The Schneidersitz describes a very typical cross-legged position that you might use during meditation, classroom discussions or any other situation that requires you to sit comfortably on the ground.

 

This term originated several centuries ago, when tailors (Schneider) used to sew all clothing by hand. Back then, tailors often sat cross-legged on the table across from their sewing machine. This prevented any cloth or material from falling onto the ground. This position also made it easier to work with heavier material.

 

In workspaces that employed more than one tailor, the Schneidersitz was also a way to use up as little space as possible; a tailor’s assistant(s) were often found sitting cross-legged in the corner while they did their work.
Today, however, the Schneidersitz has little to do with tailors – especially since factories produce much of the world’s clothing.

 

Instead, the Schneidersitz simply refers to the cross-legged position that everyone uses at some point or another. So whether you’re sewing or meditating, now you have a name for your sitting position: the Schneidersitz!

How to Make an Advent Wreath in America
With the holidays here now, I am sure everyone is buying or making a wreath for the occasion, whether for Advent or even thoughout the year.  It is so much better to make your own wreath an embolishing it to your liking and so much fun, too.  Be creative and you will see how easy it is!

 

An advent wreath or Adventskranz is traditionally a wreath with fir sprigs or other evergreen branches and four candles that either sits horizontally on a table or hangs from the ceiling.

 

A hanging advent wreath you will see more likely in a church. Most people won’t hang their wreath because you have real candles on it and therefore balance is crucial and not always guaranteed.

 

Each candle stands for one of the four Sundays before Christmas. Today I’m going to tell you how I made a German advent wreath here in America.

 

If you want to know more about the origin and history of the advent wreath and its older alternative, the Paradeisl and Klausenbaum, go to our CGRS FB page.

WUNDERBAR TOGETHER is a national German American venture put on the German Mission to the United States. In Cleveland, the The gift of Peace to America from Germany is the "Worlds Children Peace Monument" (WCPM) and is the Wunderbar Together Project. The WCPM is the cornerstone of the national coast to coast and the "Great American Peace Trail" . These Peace Projects are international public participatory art projects designed to engage children with cross-cultural awareness in order to attain the common goal of sharing peace and diversity with their neighbors.  The peace projects have direct community impacy through neighborhood beautification, community and economic development while building self-esteem and hope in America.  They will help to build better neighborhoods where everyone can live, respect and accept each other as they diplomatically negotiate errors and differences of prejudice and hatred and instill in its place the belief in the necessity of communication. It is also the purpose for Mayor Bibb to celebrate German American Day at Cleveland City Hall on October 6th this year. As Joe Namath says on TV --- ITS FREE! so I hope everyone will attend and acknowledge your German/Austrian heritage.  For more information, contact your German/American organization or the Cleveland German Radio Facebook page.

 

 

 

Please remember that if you enjoyed listening to this show, it is available all week long, 24 hours a day worldwide on the internet at WCSB.org/programs.  Please share this with your friends and family because this program belongs to everyone and they should know about it.
