As was written in the National Geographic, April 2011 edition, the mating habits and the regeneration of a new generation of European common frogs is truly an amazing natural phenonenom.  The frogs emerge from the ice on the pond at Massif de Beaufort in the French region of Savoy, which is more than 6,000 feet high in the Alps, before the onset of Spring.  The call of the male for a female can be heard through the still thawing ice. 

The frogs mate in a position which is called amplexus.  The male, who is smaller than the female, rides on the back of the female for days.  As the female releases her eggs, the male releases his sperm and fertilizes the eggs.  Because the frogs may go into hibernation for another month in this position, the size of the egg is much larger and gives the tadpole a better chance for survival.  Thus, the survival rate of the European common frog has better odds than the survival rate of other frogs.

Survival is the key.  Survival is the key for humans too.  For humans it is more than adaptibility to the outside environment.  For humans, it is the acceptance and the reflections on changes, transitions in life.  Survival was the key to avoiding being caught bvy the Nazis in WWII.  In order to survive, survivors had to readapt to new habitat, a whole new way of living.  Read and see for yourself how the Joseph Freier family escaped the Nazi onslaught in WWII. Joseph Freier and his family’s story is written in four volumns and listed on the www.thegraylinghiddentruthpoems.com website.
