Charlie is an undersized black cat, found on the streets of BH in 2013 when he was a weak kitten weighing only 400 grams. After he agreed to live with me, he soon began to demonstrate certain unusual characteristics and as soon as he got strong and healthy, he found a seemingly telepathic way to communicate with me. Suddenly, I could read his thoughts, and they were deep indeed.
Then, in January of 2015, three days after the deadly Paris attacks on the magazine Charlie Hebdo and the 3 days of terror that followed, Charlie suddenly found a way to beam himself to France. He wasn’t even 2 years old yet. Until that tragic date, I was unaware of the extent of his powers. He brought a bit of peace and understanding to the millions of demonstrators in Paris, and managed to transmit some wisdom to the more than 40 world leaders that met there. If you look closely at pictures taken during this time, you might see little Charlie in a corner holding a quiet conversation with an influential dignitary. When you hear people shouting, “Je suis Charlie” know that they are crying out for the BH Charlie and his important missions, as well as the city.
Much to my surprise, Charlie converted to Judaism on that very first trip to Paris. And since that time, he travels the world over, trying to implant the philosophy of liberty, empathy and tolerance into the minds of an unusual variety of people. Charlie does not actually teach love, because, curiously, he does not personally adhere to any Beatles-type philosophy or believe that love is a cure-all. Truth be told, I have never heard him mention love except when he meditates about how we humans should treat our planet Earth. You can follow Charlie’s missions here, and also learn the vocabulary needed to understand world politics and happenings.
