The Decrease in Wild Animals Is Dangerous to Humans

The Decrease in Wild Animals
Is Dangerous to Humans
By Edward C. Fritz
November 14, 2006

At age ninety and three fourths, I am living far more than any of my ancestors. My ancestors died in their eighties or less.
I am living in my oldest age, including my enjoyment of living beyond doing any more work and merely enjoying myself. Fortunately, I still have my wife, Genie, who is feeding me the foods that keep me going and having fun.
I have lived past the ninth month of my 90th year. I tell my friends and relatives how beautiful life is beyond any more working. My friends and relatives are looking forward to the time when, like me, I worked for the best areas of human policies until I became 90. Almost all my friends and relatives are trying to keep people happy.
I have worked hard to save our people against over-population, and saved our wild animals and birds for staying alive for the wonderful feelings of human beings.
Channel 13, at 7:00 one night, presented many birds and animals of the Antarctic, showing how they are losing their numbers in recent years. The lessening of birds and animals is because humans are increasing their numbers. I suggest that humans no longer increase their
numbers, which ruin some birds and animals. Birds, animals, and wild animals are part of how humans can keep enjoying life. I suggest that humans do no longer increase their numbers.

Life Is Wonderful

Life Is Wonderful, But It Is Almost Over
By Edward C. Fritz

I have now lived my fifth month after my 91st year of life. There are only about one-fourteenth of all humans who live this long. Most of these humans do not feel they can present their life estates after 90 years.
I am now living life for the old persons, which does not include as much action as I experienced earlier. One of my present enjoyments is my wife, Genie, my three daughters, my nine grandchildren and my five great-grandchildren. I also enjoy my birds who come to our feeder.
Today is one day to the sixth month after my 91 years of life.
The birds that now come to our feeder next to our house are House sparrows, House finches, Downy woodpeckers, Red-bellied woodpeckers, Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Bluejays, Brewers Blackbirds, Cardinals.
My wife has helped me going until now. I will soon die.

I've Done A Lot

I’ve Done A Lot But I’m About to Give Up

I have lived to 91 years and one and one-half months, far longer than any ancestors. I am now doing little. Three of my ancestors lived to 88, and the rest died younger. My mother died at 81. My father died at 63. But I have accomplished more than any of them.
I have been head of several groups, including Texas Committee on Natural Resources, which has a new leader, and Natural Area Preservation Association, which has a new leader.
I won about all my cases in court including saving the red-cockaded woodpecker from being killed by the U.S. Forest Service in Texas.

My wife and I and some others feel that when we die we never come back anywhere. We feel that life is helping people until they die.
Other people who expect to live somewhere else after death fail to help themselves or others become active after death.
No person has seen any person live after death. There is no way to enable people who died practicing any life after death. We should all know death is final.
After death we cannot rise again anywhere, in any kind of form. We are just one more death like any other lives that lived for about four million years.

DAR Conservation Award

Press Release: For Immediate Release
Contact: Genie Fritz (214) 352-8370

The Thankful Hubbard Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution has honored local environmentalist, Edward (Ned) Fritz, with the DAR Conservation Medal Award. A recipient of this award must have a distinguished and outstanding conservation record. As the father of environmentalism in Texas for his work in establishing many environmental organizations; his efforts in conserving land and wildlife; and his efforts in environmental education, Ned Fritz easily met the criteria for the award, according to chapter members.

Zipra Morgan, Regent of the Austin chapter and A. Gayle Hudgens, Ph.D., Chapter Conservation Chair, will be coming from Austin to Dallas for the award ceremony. The ceremony will take place Sunday, March 11, at 1:30 p.m. in Raible Chapel of the First Unitarian Church of Dallas, Preston Road at Normandy. The public is invited.

The DAR Conservation Committee was first established at the national level in 1909 and has since emphasized the responsible use of our natural resources. It also promotes recycling, water conservation, airscaping with native plants. It offers updates on land use issues, alternative energy sources and aquifer replenishment.

No One Should Think for Life After Death
By Edward C. Fritz
March 5, 2007

Many people, including my wife and I, and all other persons, never live after death. No person goes to heaven or where.
All persons should try to enjoy life, but not try to resume after death.
More people hope that after they die they will get off our planet and live again. We have never seen any people get back to life after they die.
Like most people, I have enjoyed life and done helpful things. I have done little good lately, since I am old. I am 91 years old, plus about a month.
All persons should enjoy life and help others to enjoy life. They should not work for a life after death.
