My grandpop mentioned the name Albert Schweitzer the other day, and was really perturbed that I did not know who he was. He blamed modern education, and the media. Here is some info about him if Albert Schweitzer are interested; Albert Schweitzer (14 January 1875 – 4 September 1965) was an Alsatian German-French theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician. He was born in Kaysersberg in the province of Alsace-Lorraine, from 1871 to 1918 in the German Empire. Schweitzer challenged both the secular view of Jesus as depicted by historical-critical methodology current at his time in certain academic circles, as well as the traditional Christian view, depicting a Jesus Christ who expected and predicted the imminent end of the world. He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for his philosophy of "Reverence for Life", expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, now in Gabon, west central Africa (then French Equatorial Africa). As a music scholar and organist, he studied the music of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach and influenced the Organ reform movement (Orgelbewegung). Maybe if the media spent a little more time focusing on stories about people like Albert Schweitzer in today's world there would not be such a feeling of hopelessness around this country. We all feel it. I mean how many stories do we really need about Republicans compensating strippers, or how many cigarettes the President smokes a day? Let's get real! How come I do not know who Albert Schweitzer was? Does it matter?
