Eric and others,
A COLONENSE world monumental achievement in Philosophy and Academics, Dr. Jose Petterson, on March 2008 got his Ph.D in Philosophy at Berlin University.
He studied in the USSR for 7 years and got a Masters in Chemistry. With $25 after buying a ticket to Berlin from USSR, he managed to pass the entrance exams and 16 years later got his Doctorate in Philosophy from Berlin University in Germany.
I have asked Colonense President of APUDEP Jose Young, and by this note will ask Saul Mendez, also a Colonense, Leader of SUNTRACS and our FRENADESO and the Coordinadora de Lucha la vida y dignidad de los Pueblos, to get our popular organizations together and see about doing an international honors for Jose Petterson´s accomplishment.
His thesis "the concept of God, in the theoretical framework of Kants thinking (?)." I am not good at all at translating or even reading German...
Please, consider publishing this picture of Jose in front of monitor with a monitor picture of all graduates for the year....not many as one may see.
He is so exhausted, that in a week or so will send all pictures of graduating ceremony, certificate handout and do a brief story of his struggle and efforts for 23 years abroad.
This will be exclusive popular celebration..jojojo...a la Saladino!!!
