Prayer of comfort – Psalm 23

For you, for all readers of this web page:

We still need and seek comfort, which helps us deal with our loss. The following is a possibility, as it makes sadness and comfort perceptible for anyone who reads it.

Prayer of comfort – Psalm 23

And so I pray, The Lord is my shepherd, yet I feel so miserable and abandoned.

And I continue to pray, I shall not want; and I know: This individual, Andreas, I will miss. Nobody can replace his love, and I will miss him all my life. And I continue to pray, He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside quiet waters. And I think to myself, if God is planning a future for me, I do not yet see it. But if one day I might breathe again with relief, I thank him. So I continue, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. And I think that in my grief I am tested, but I wonder: For whom is this sadness? Do you cry because you have lost someone, or do you cry because that someone lost his life? But has he?

And in my questions, I pray, Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, and grief is such a valley, I will fear no evil; and I will not be ashamed of my feelings – for you are with me; even if my way leads to the cemetery and my home has become emptier.

Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. And I pray with new certainty, You prepare a table before me, I then think of the next meal – where a place will be empty – and my prayer continues, in the presence of my enemies; my grief has taught me how unimportant and groundless my hostilities are, so I thank this grief that frees me from existing enmities.

You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows. Yes you, Lord, transform my pain into maturity. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life; You, Lord, accompany my life wherever it leads. …and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

I have my home with you.

Amen

Questions about the existence of photos / videos that do not fit the official crash scenario and changed crash time

According to the Germanwings investigation file, many mobile phones, of various makes, were found at the crash site. Some of them were undamaged. We all use mobile phones not only to make phone calls and send text messages, but also to take photos or create videos.

One can assume that on the salvaged mobile phones crash victims’ photos and videos of various kinds were stored. It is quite likely that passengers captured in photos or videos the last few minutes aboard the Germanwings plane. Especially in the first rows of seats, e.g. in the immediate vicinity of the cockpit door, the activities of the captain and the cabin crew would have been noticed by passengers, assuming they were conscious. Such photos and videos would provide critical proof in support of the official crash theory and would certainly have been presented in the investigation file. But these photos / videos are not available.

Personal items from the crash site which could be clearly identified immediately were soon handed over to the relatives. Included were several mobile phones. However, a representative for victims’ families from Spain, Paraguay and the United Kingdom, Narcis Motjé, publicly complained that SIM cards, possibly containing information on the course of events leading up to the crash, had been removed before the mobile phones were returned to the families.

Victims’ lawyers representing other families also objected in a similar way, namely that photos and videos on the returned mobile phones had been deleted. Under these circumstances one must ask oneself, why had this been done? Did the Mirage fighter play a very different role? What could images or videos of a fighter aircraft, taken by Germanwings passengers, ultimately reveal? According to the investigation file (see page HA 04758) a Mirage fighter plane was indeed on the way. See the following excerpt from the file:

After the Centre National des Operations Aerienne de Lyon (CNOA) had been activated by Aix Air Traffic Control and the operational alert was triggered, a Mirage 2000, based in Orange, launched a search and rescue mission. When it arrived in the area a police helicopter was already present.

The Mirage reached the area, but only after the plane had already crashed…  According to the official BEA Final Report, the Germanwings plane crashed at 09:41:06 (UTC) in the French Alps. (In March, Central European Time is one hour later than UTC.) The impact of the Germanwings plane was thus given as 10:41:06 local time. However, in the early media reports the crash time was reported as 10:53 am – 12 minutes later than what was recorded in the BEA Final Report. At 10:53 (!) on March 26, 2015, a minute of silence was held in North Rhine-Westphalia during which people remembered the victims of the catastrophe. At the same time, bells tolled in our town; at Cologne-Bonn Airport hundreds of Germanwings employees gathered at headquarters; and in Berlin the Federal Cabinet participated in this minute of silence. 10:53 was the moment when the radio transmission from the Germanwings’s plane was silenced by the impact.

It is incomprehensible why, in retrospect, the crash time was brought forward from 10:53 to 10:41, and no one has asked why nor has anyone publically explained. Clearly, these facts raise serious questions: It is officially claimed that by 10:41 the Mirage fighter jet was unable to intercept the Germanwings plane, but it could have – 12 minutes later…
