Cher Ami (French for “dear friend”, in the masculine) was a homing pigeon who had been donated by the pigeon fanciers of Britain for use by the U.S. Army Signal Corps in France during World War I and had been trained by American pigeoneers. She helped save about 200 men, even though she was greatly injured. The battalion she helped save was the Lost Battalion of the 77th Division in the Battle of the Argonne, October 1918.


On October 3, 1918, Major Charles White Whittlesey and more than 500 men were trapped in a small depression on the side of the hill behind enemy lines without food or ammunition. They were also beginning to receive friendly fire from allied troops who did not know their location. Surrounded by the Germans, many were killed and wounded in the first day and by the second day, just over 190[verification needed] men were still alive. Whittlesey dispatched messages by pigeon.[2] The pigeon carrying the first message, “Many wounded. We cannot evacuate.” was shot down. A second bird was sent with the message, “Men are suffering. Can support be sent?” That pigeon also was shot down. Only one homing pigeon was left: “Cher Ami”. She was dispatched with a note in a canister on her left leg,
We are along the road paralell to 276.4. Our own artillery is dropping a barrage directly on us. For heavens sake stop it.

As Cher Ami tried to fly back home, the Germans saw her rising out of the brush and opened fire. For several moments, Cher Ami flew with bullets zipping through the air all around her.Cher Ami was eventually shot down but managed to take flight again. She arrived back at her loft at division headquarters 25 miles (40 km) to the rear in just 25 minutes, helping to save the lives of the 194 survivors. In this last mission, Cher Ami delivered the message despite having been shot through the breast, blinded in one eye, covered in blood and with a leg hanging only by a tendon.


Cher Ami became the hero of the 77th Infantry Division. Army medics worked long and hard to save her life. They were unable to save her leg, so they carved a small wooden one for her. When she recovered enough to travel, the now one-legged bird was put on a boat to the United States, with General John J. Pershing personally seeing Cher Ami off as she departed France.


Awards 

Upon return to the United States, Cher Ami became the mascot of the Department of Service [verification needed]. The pigeon was awarded the Croix de Guerre Medal with a palm Oak Leaf Cluster for her heroic service in delivering 12 important messages in Verdun. She died at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, on June 13, 1919 from the wounds she received in battle and was later inducted into the Racing Pigeon Hall of Fame in 1931. She also received a gold medal from the Organized Bodies of American Racing Pigeon Fanciers in recognition of her extraordinary service during World War I.

Not all those who wander are LOST! 


The most important thing in LIFE is to get to know oneself β€”

 In search of the Oneself. It’s a funny concept, isn’t it? How does one find oneself when physically you have never left yourself?
Or have you, but just haven’t noticed? Maybe you are one of the lucky few that doesn’t need to spend your life searching for what makes you you. 
I meant the Real YOU! Not the one that people expect you to BE.


The only way to find yourself  to find out what you are made of and what really makes your heart tick  is to let go of everything. 

Hopefully you will be willing to do it on your own.


Undress of everything including people. A Self cleanser.


We can stay home alone instead of going out to meet up with friends for drinks. We don’t need to meet up with our boyfriends, girlfriends, lovers, mistresses, booty-calls, f*ck-buddies or hookers. We don’t need to watch TV, watch movies, read, exercise, clean or anything else. In order for us to meet ourselves we must cut out all that is in excess of life itself. Curious huh? 


Definition of Karmic Connection:


When you meet someone you have a karmic connection with, a spark of recognition ignites in your soul. 

You’ll feel a haunting familiarity, a sense of having come home, a longing for something not quite remembered.


You feel a deep, spiritual connection to this person almost like you have known them for a long time.

You have flashbacks or deja vu moments where you feel that you have been together before.

You seem to understand each other and have a similar way of thinking.


You may have similar flaws or habits, or you both had similar challenges during childhood.

Your connection is intense and so too is the relationship. Often it can move from extreme highs to extreme lows.


You feel in sync with each other even when you are not physically together. There may be a feeling of having to team up together to conquer something.

You know intuitively what the other is thinking or feeling. You feel very in-tune and connected with their thoughts and actions.


Your relationship is emotional, challenging and can bring things out in you that you didn’t know existed.

You may experience huge shifts and changes in your life when you first meet this person.

Your relationship may not last forever but the love is always there.

Socrates said that the only life worth living is a well-examined life.

The reality is that human beings are complete spiritual beings.

Love and sex and other aspects of Humans.Sex is just one small part of our being.

Love and Sex are a very important part, and it’s definitely a gateway to other higher states of being that make up the human experience so great, but you have to look at Human beings as a whole and any talk of sexual compatibility but also involve emotional compatibility, mental needs, intellectual stimulation, and spiritual fulfillment and completion.

So take time to examine yourself well, do a lot of self-introspection, and in all things be true to yourself.  Try to keep it real.

   

           

Living fully means exploring and being happy with who you are, how you feel and who you are emotionally drawn to. 

What does knowing yourself have to do with maximizing sexuality compatibility, enjoyment, and fulfillment?

“If you just do something, then you’re a five-year wonder and, goodbye, you’re gone. But if people feel it’s worthwhile, not only do they copy but they want to learn how to do it… To me, that’s what it’s all about. If someone were to ask me, ‘What’s the number one thing, in essence, that you left behind?’ It was the teaching of others so that they could take my work and take it further.” – Vidal Sassoon via Vidal Sassoon The Movie
