Während es eigentlich verboten ist, andere Menschen umzubringen, verbietet niemand, Alternativenergien zu erforschen. Theresa Heinz Kerry, die Frau des Senators John Kerry, zeigt Interesse:

Born in Mozambique, fluent in several languages, Teresa Heinz Kerry has combined compassion and common sense to become a force for innovation and social progress as leader of one of the nation’s large private foundations. After studying at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa and the University of Geneva, she moved to the United States and got a job working for the Trusteeship Council of the United Nations. In 1966, she married Senator John Heinz …

Turning down offers to seek election to her husband’s Senate seat to take care of her sons, family and professional responsibilities, she became chairman of The Howard Heinz Endowment and the Heinz Family Philanthropies. Under her leadership, the Heinz foundations are widely known for developing innovative strategies to protect the environment, improve education and the lives of young children, reduce the cost of prescription drugs, promote the arts and help women achieve financial economic security. She established the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement in 1996 to educate women about pensions, savings, and retirement security.

Their mutual interest in environmental issues brought Teresa and John together. She was first introduced to John Kerry by Senator Heinz at an Earth Day rally in 1990. In 1992, she met John Kerry again at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro when President George H. W. Bush appointed her as part of a State Department Delegation representing U.S. non-governmental organizations.

She and John Kerry were married in the presence of her three sons and his two daughters on Memorial Day weekend in 1995. Teresa has received numerous awards and 10 honorary degrees for her many works. In September 2003, she was presented with the Albert Schweitzer Gold Medal for Humanitarianism for her work protecting the environment, promoting health care and education and uplifting women and children throughout the world. She was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2001…..“

Senator John Kerry lehnt die grässliche Todesstrafe außer in extrem schwerwiegenden Straftaten (Terrorismus) ab, im Gegensatz zu den republikanischen Kandidaten.

  1. What`s the conection between the death penalty, alternative energy sources and the biography of teresa heinz?

  2. The connection is humanity. Do you really think, the US wants to free Middle East not thinking for their own advantage? Of course they also like the smell of money and oil. Senator J. Kerry was one of the leaders of the demonstrations against the Vietnam war. Wanting to stop the escalating war in Middle East, fighting against drilling oil in Alaska, he and his wife started to think about developping alternative energy sources.

    There is a big difference between Theresa Heinz Kerry and Anne Coulter. Anne Coulter says: „Oh, we´ve saved the unborn babies, what should we mind about the dead soldiers!“ But it is the sense of humanity to feel responsible also for the murders in their prisons, for the „foes“ in other countries, for the nature, for the poor. This ideals also connect Europe and US and it would be a good idea, not to forget Senator John Kerry and his wife Theresa.
