Karl H. Eisbrenner
Justice4you, is taking this time to pay its respect to Karl Heintz Eisbrenner, a lawyer (1993), wrongfully disbarred by the British Columbia Law Society (2003).
Karl died on Saturday July 29, 2006, in a car accident.
Not sure how it happened and not sure whether the details are important, however in order to ease the shock and pain, we wondered When Why? and What did Karl do to cause his sudden death?
The answer came and we understood it may have been Karls time.
Thus the circumstances of Karls death matters not at this time, as much as the fact the world is not the same without Karl in it.
Karl is a fixture on the justice4yous website, wherein the site fully supported his efforts, he in turn was fully supportive of the content of the site.
Karl would write regularly to justice4you and on July 23, 06, he emailed the following:
lying under the piano bench?
Beethoven's last movement
"the song of joy"
Whether the email sent six (6) days prior to Karls death was coincidental is unknown, however the song of Joy is Ludwig van Beethovens last complete symphony No. 9 in D minor, opus 125.
The lyrics of Beethoven for the song of Joy in English Translation are:
Oh friends, not these tones!
Rather let us sing more
cheerful and more joyful ones.
What custom sternly divides;
All people become brothers
In German Translations:
O Freunde, nicht diese Tone!
Sondern lasst uns angenehmere
anstimmen und freudenvollere.
What is so moving about those words is that it comes from Beethoven.
And Beethoven greets us person to person, with glass raised, and hails us as friends.
It is said, in an unprecedented way for a composer, Beethoven deliberately stepped into history with a great ceremonial work that The Ninth doesn't just preach freedom and the unity of peoples but attempts strangely to foster them.
Likewise, on July 23, 06, Karl picked the Ninth Symphony of Beethoven, to send his friends a message of unity.
Karl, with glass raised, is promoting, like Beethoven, growth amongst his friends, who have the same burning passion as his.
No doubt Karl was a man more incline to do the work of an artist than of a lawyer, as evidence shows in his writings.
Karl had an extreme sensitivity and ability to use words as his canvas and while many times his writings were like an abstract painting, in due course his message would become clear, provided the reader was prepared to read his message with love.
George Bernard Shaw said:
The true artist will let his wife starve,
his children go barefoot,
his mother drudge for his living at seventy,
than work at anything but his art.
Karl had chosen a profession that alas does not have room for geniuses like him.
Sure the profession have plenty of members appearing as if they may have some potential for greatness, but none can compose like Karl, for avant tout, Karl was a true artist.
There was nothing ordinary about Karl, yet he was most comfortable with the common people.
Whereas lawyers are notorious in finding conflict no matter the situation, Karl, was the opposite.
Karl preferred teaching anyone prepared to listen, including teaching the judiciary who intentionally let Karl down in a major way, by not applying the law, as they knew it.
It is true that Karl continued giving his knowledge selflessly to many people in need of legal direction.
Today is our chance to say "thank you" for the way you brightened our lives, even though God granted you but a short life.
We will all feel cheated that you were taken from us at such a young age, and yet we must learn to be grateful that you came along at all.
We have despaired at our loss over the past few days and only the strength of the message you gave us through your writings, has afforded us the strength to move forward.
Without your God-given sensitivity, we would be immersed in greater ignorance at the anguish of the corruption you faced with your own brothers and sisters.
Karl, a child of Immigrant refugees was extremely gifted, and whether this gift was apparent from early on in his life, is unbeknownst to us, as only his mother, who saw one of her boys leave this earth before her, could confirm this.
We give thanks for the life of Karl Heitnz-Eisbrenner: the true artist, lawyer unlike any other lawyers, whose beauty was too beautiful for this world.
We will sincerely miss Karls emails; miss his abstracted writings that would get us thinking; we will miss his sense of spirit.
We will forever miss you Karl and above all the good news is that your memory will live on through your writings on justice4you.
We will post some of your emails that many of us may not have been prepared to understand and perhaps we will understand them now.
To you dear friend!!!
