“I run not to oppose any man or woman, but to propose new and far-reaching policies to deal with the crises of our times. And I run because I know we must change course now, or risk losing the future for so many to the interests of so few.”   ~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

Sen. Bernie Sanders & "Birdie" Sanders

  Sen. Bernie Sanders & “Birdie” Sanders

As Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks to his exuberant supporters in Portland, Oregon, March 25, also on Good Friday, a little bird flies in and rests on his lectern. They look at each other for about 10 seconds and it gently flies away. The people jump up cheering with excitement. In the video, Bernie basically says that despite what it looks like, it’s a Dove of Peace saying no more wars, please. Since dubbed “Birdie Sanders,” today it seems the Universe is saying:

“Keep telling the truth Sen. Sanders, the people need to hear the truth. As only the truth can free them of all the lies and half-truths too many of their established leaders prefer to tell them.”

Never Be Fair to Your Adversary

Years ago, a very dear friend once told me: “Never be fair to your adversary.”

Today, this is still good advice, given the intense election process. For Sen. Sanders, it’s a matter of comparing the differences between them for the voters. For the Clinton camp that cries foul every time Bernie mentions her leadership shortcomings, it’s likely a sneaky defense tactic to shift the spotlight off of Hillary Clinton’s abysmal record. Of course, the GOP is well aware of her record and is ready and quite willing to use such against the Clinton’s (in spades) should Hillary make it to the general election.

Today on CNN, Fmr. Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a national surrogate for Hillary Clinton, thinks Bernie Sanders should stay in the race, but tone down the rhetoric. Sadly something has gone terribly wrong here! Many of these high-profile Democrats aren’t playing fair, having pledged as “superdelegates” for Hillary Clinton long before the convention; and seem bent on winning at all costs.

Yet, they also seem mesmerized by their own rhetoric, expecting Hillary Clinton to actually be the Democratic nominee and that Bernie and his supporters will give up their quest for a better American life and support her. Ed Rendell also thinks we (Sanders’ supporters) should even form a Super PAC for them. Imagine that? During the Town Hall meetings and debates, I got the distinct impression from Hillary that that’s the way it is done in politics.

Sadly, They Just Don’t Get It.

News flash: this is not politics as usual! In view of it all, seems Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and others made one of those historic “back room deals” when she ran the last time and lost to Obama. You know, the old game: “You scratch my back and I scratch your back in return.” Now, I (and many others no doubt) understand why the doable progress Obama promised America eight years ago has yet to be realized! And why Hillary Clinton keeps saying, “I know how to do it.” Yeah sure! I shudder to think what she will give away under pressure.

Thus Things Have Radically Changed

The people are awake now, are tired of the terrible betrayals by both parties, and tired of being used by the billionaires and millionaires to pad their own pockets while disregarding the country and the people’s basic needs. Actually, this is the type of stuff that started the destructive revolts of the past. How sad is that. Hopefully that won’t happen here.

America is destined to be so much better than that! Thankfully, a different politician is on the scene now. And he’s telling it like it is, much to the chagrin of the establishment. Usually, at times such as this a special leader comes forth: A true leader who has the courage of his convictions, the life experience to get things done, the compassion to truly care about others, and the wisdom to discern between insatiable greed and real wealth for the good of all.

The candidate of whom I write is, of course, Sen. Bernie Sanders, a real agent for change who is not for sale! A change agent who is calling for a political revolution, one that is won not in the streets but at the ballot box!

Today on CNN with Jake Tapper, Bernie Sanders states this when asked: “Look, I’m focusing right now on dealing with why the middle class of this country continues to disappear, why we’re the only country on Earth, Jake, that doesn’t provide paid family and medical leave, why we don’t guarantee health care to all of our people. I was just in Baltimore yesterday. The level of poverty is unbelievable. We have to rebuild our inner cities. I think the American people want us to focus on the real issues impacting them, how their kids can afford to go to college, not worry at this point about who is going to be a vice presidential candidate.”

Hence, a vote for Bernie Sanders will surly set American life back on its right course.

Free the mind, educate yourself, think well before you vote, and do keep the faith!

Jane and Bernie Sanders

Jane and Bernie Sanders

“I run not to oppose any man or woman, but to propose new and far-reaching policies to deal with the crises of our times. And I run because I know we must change course now, or risk losing the future for so many to the interests of so few.”   ~Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)

Wow! The above noble words from the Bern set my feet back on solid ground.

Being an avid Bernie Sander’s supporter, naturally I was disappointed with the New York Primary results and cried for a minute. So, I allowed myself to go with that feeling, grabbed a cup of tea, a light dinner, watched more of the depressing news coverage (silly me), watched a sit-com on TV and took to my bed exhausted.

The next morning, the phone rings and wakes me from my good nights’ sleep. Yet, at the edge of my thoughts lurked Depression, my old nemesis, trying to remind me not to be so happy; which would have worked back in the day.

Having realized the value of real happiness after years of hard work, thankfully my higher mind sharply reminds me that I know better. That the ancient teachings of Jesus the Christ and Paramahansa Yogananda[1] have raised me to think better than that, so don’t even go there!

Bernie’s Encouraging Email

Being the one who initially inspired me, I go to my computer and look for an email from my candidate. Great, I got just what I needed. Thanks Bernie.

The above great words are from Bernie’s initial email announcing his candidacy for President of the United States, which was cleverly included in his recent email reaffirming his beliefs. How cool was that!

For me, Sen. Sanders’ very first words were right on: “I run not to oppose any man or woman, but to propose new and far-reaching policies…”

I detest fighting. Having to be against something rather than for something can be very stressful; thus I was instantly relieved, looked around and Depression had left the building (so to speak)!

Jane Sanders CNN Interview

Nearly a week before the New York Primary Jane Sanders, Bernie’s wife, also from Brooklyn, is interviewed by CNN anchor, Brook Baldwin. According to CNN’s article titled, “Jane Sanders Hits Primary Process…” the New York state primary voters had to register at least 25 days before an election in order to participate. For those needing to switch party affiliation the deadline was October 9th.

Accordingly: “I thought we were trying to reinvigorate our democracy … We’re bringing a lot of new people into the party and it’s really too bad that they’re shutting the door on them,” said Mrs. Sanders.

As to the Democratic nominating process: “You have to admit, the way that they’re doing things in terms of superdelegates and in terms of how delegates are put out there doesn’t make a lot of sense to the average person… We understood those are the rules [so] we’re not complaining about it,” said Mrs. Sanders.

Sadly, indeed there would be significant voter irregularities on the following Tuesday that lights up social media. Wednesday, the Huffington Post reports: The New York Attorney General is Investigating Primary Voting Irregularities.  Like, what else is new these days?

Dreaming the Impossible Dream

According to Bernie Sanders, We still have a path to the nomination….and there are a lot of delegates up for grabs.” In other words, we are in it to win it. And so we will.

Some like to trivialize Bernie’s attainable proposals as an impossible dream. Yet, without our dreams, life ceases to evolve and we become depressed. Sadly today, way too many people have lost their faith. Yet it is our very faith that gives us both the capacity to dream the impossible dream and the courage to make it happen. For a better way of American life, go here to Bernie Sanders’ website.

Long ago, I realized that not only does God give us dreams; He gives us the wings to make them fly.

“Only Love is Real.” ~A Course In Miracles

“Why didn’t she simply embrace her humanity and show that she could fully embrace the humanity of others, despite her whiteness,” from ‘Rachel Dolezal’s Imitation Game…’ by Charles D. Ellison, veteran political strategist and contributing editor of The Root.

In view of the Rachel Dolezal story, a woman who resigned her post recently as President of the NAACP’s Spokane Chapter in Washington State, seems a national conversation has started about race, which is good. Yet, this time, the focus is more about racial identity rather than race or the complex subject of racism.

According to Huffington Post article “Rachel Dolezal Steps Down As President of Spokane NAACP Chapter,” Ms. Dolezal, is a White woman who allegedly passed as African American for nearly a decade. According to another Huff Post article, “Rachel Dolezal’s Parents Say She Has a History of ‘Seeking To Reinvent Reality’”, seems the story has now taken a life of its own; thereby, inspiring many news articles and discussions.

While watching Anderson Cooper’s show on CNN recently and his lovely guests, writer and social activist, Michaela Angela Davis and New York Times op-ed columnist, Charles M. Blow, I was struck by the statement referring to race as being a “social construct” in which all three unanimously agreed. Being self-educated in the School of Higher Learning where a universal experience of truth is sought rather than a collective theory, here is where I differ.

Back in the day, when they still taught the three R’s (reading, writing and arithmetic) and some science, race was a term science used to identify the four basic groups of humanity. Based upon the physical characteristics of each group, mainly the skin color; hence, the Red, Yellow, Black and White race; which, at a glance, still makes sense today.

Basis of Race as a ‘Social Construct’

Recently, say within the last century or so, Social Sciences have come up with its own scheme of things known as a theory, not a fact mind you, but a mere speculation which identifies race as a ‘social construct’ that tends to sound all fancy and real, but it isn’t. Of course, this has come to serve a great purpose in the glorified world of academia, where a good debate is often preferred over speaking the truth in a given issue, in my opinion.

With required study and passage of time, the better one becomes at debating an issue, any issue, the more educated one is deemed to be; regardless of whether the truth is ever revealed. Thus, modern society is teeming with PhDs still debating, yet rarely in search of the truth.

Sadly, today, the ongoing debate about race and its ‘social construct’ continues to confuse most everybody. While the real origin of racism that continues to impede the evolution of American democracy, is rarely talked about.

Race, A Biological Reality Indeed

During the last few days seems some are trying to justify Miss Rachel’s actions with those of the transgender community, which is a big mistake. So please, let’s not even go there.

As I understand it, the purpose of gender transitioning, whether choosing to undergo sexual reassignment or not, is to live one’s gender orientation openly and truthfully in society without prejudice. Thus, free of the social construct of having to live a lie just to survive.

Conversely, one who lies about their racial origin is not free.  As that person is living a lie, thus often in a state of fear.  In time, self-hatred arises and takes its toll on the quality of life.

In Rachel’s case, had she been truthful about her racial origin and cultural background, her story to the world would have been so much more meaningful, thus richer. Instead of living a lie, she could have lived the truth, thus learning to love herself in the process.

This, I believe, is why the truth has finally come out for Rachel. So as to set her, and others close to her, free to express life’s greatest asset…the truth.

Since race is a biological reality created by a Higher Power not of this world, we can safely believe that race is not a social construct to be debated endlessly.

Yet, American racism is a social construct, ca.1600!

Today, we can choose to adopt another race and its culture as long as we tell the truth!  So, let’s keep it real, shall we? After all, no one really likes being lied too.

“The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.” ~Blaise Pascal, 17th Century Truthseeker

According to the Ancients, the heart is the psychic center of feeling; which, of course, is not the same as our human emotions that are generally born of our fixed opinions about things and events. Thus, learning to discern between our perception and our intuition ultimately becomes the primary task of all truthseekers.

Throughout the ages, seems women are thought to be more intuitive than men. Yet men are quite capable of successfully using their intuition as well.  Could it be that women usually rely on their intuition more than most men? Or is this simply one of life’s mysteries to ponder as we evolve?

Nonetheless, since justice is indeed a quality of the heart, as we generally ‘feel’ deep within us when something is not quite right or totally unfair despite what is reasonably stated, is it no wonder then that Justice is usually symbolize as a woman?

Hence, still among us are statutes of the Ancient Egyptian goddesses Ma’at (Truth) and Isis (whose name means ‘throne’), the Roman goddess Justitia or Lady Justice, and the Greek goddess Themis, all symbols of justice found throughout the world.

Meeting Durga, Hindu Goddess of Justice

My favorite symbol of Justice is the Hindu goddess Durga, whom I discovered while studying Bharata Natyam (classic temple dance of India) years ago. In times of injustice, many Hindus offer prayers to Durga. Once during class, my Hindu dance teacher gives a traditional nod to the Durga in me. Later she would cast me in her dance recital as Mahisha Asura, the fierce buffalo demon (the ego) that Durga must slay in order to redeem society.

Actually, we’re all meant to integrate the Creative forces (heart and mind) within us, thus killing off our ego (false pride). Hence, the perpetual battles between the East and the West, or so it seems: “And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars…but the end is not yet,” Jesus the Christ, St. Matthew 24:6.

Meanwhile, to be clear here, the aforesaid goddesses in classic mythologies actually represent the intrinsic aspects of good (God) such as: Truth, Courage, Compassion and Justice. Thus, this is not at all about idol worship, but rather about honoring those sacred qualities within us.

Justice for Freddie Gray

When the Mayor said the following, I thought, wow! How cool was that: “We will get justice for Freddie Gray. Believe you me, we’ll get justice. We’re going to do it because we’re going to work together; because, if with the nation watching, three black women at three different levels can’t get justice and healing for this community, you tell me where we’re going to get it in our country,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Baltimore

Some men seem to have taken offense to the good mayor’s insightful remarks concerning justice and healing in America via three black women. Yet, as a black woman in America who’s learned to have faith in a Higher Power, I truly understand!

The Eye Contact

Seems the fact of Freddie Gray “having made eye contact” with the police on that fateful Sunday morning has become eventful following his tragic death and its universal aftermath.

Though it is unclear concerning the eye contact in Freddie’s police report, still I am reminded of my disturbing encounter with a police officer while on my way to work.

Sometime ago on a bright and sunny day, feeling happy in my own skin, as usual, I find myself walking by three policemen who had exited the nearby fast-food store. While no eye contact as such, I do recall a fleeting glance into his face that was not friendly.

As I continued walking, I sensed his burly presence behind me, just short of breathing down my neck, and wondered why he did not turn into the adjacent parking lot with the other two police officers. Feeling most uncomfortable, I kept walking knowing my office was near.

Soon, I reach my workplace and as I am about to open the door, I sense the negative energy behind me abate and the annoying policeman leave, though I never looked back. It clearly was a campaign office for the next attorney general.

Preferring peace, I was glad the annoyance abated and that I didn’t have to report this officer who clearly was having a bad day, or a bad life, and was spoiling for a fight (the ego’s way of transferring its rage with impunity).

Sadly, young Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown fell prey to their killer’s raging hatefulness, and the rest is history.

Actually, I Admire the Police

Being fond of law and order, I have an abiding respect for police work that typically requires great intelligence, empathy and self-discipline. In general, my minimal police encounters have been very positive, starting with my early childhood on the Southside of Chicago.

Many years ago while working in real estate, I happened upon an unforgettable moment of pure intelligence. He was standing at the front counter. I was in one of the cubicles behind it. As I rounded the corner into his line of vision, it strangely felt like I was walking toward an alien that was computing my race, gender, approximate age, height, and weight. Once there, he became human again, smiled one of those great President Obama type smiles and politely presented his badge. He was an FBI Agent looking for a previous tenant. Glad all went well.

Baltimore Riots of 2015 Begins

On Monday April 27, the day of Freddie Gray’s funeral, a 25-year-old African American male who died on April 19 of injuries sustained while in police custody, the now historic Baltimore Riots of 2015 begins despite his grief-stricken family’s calls for peace.

Sadly, such turn of events would be in sharp contrast to a week of intense yet generally peaceful protests, with many marching nightly against a long history of police brutality in Baltimore, and elsewhere, in the name of “Justice for Freddie”.

After school lets out that Monday, several hundred high school students begin throwing rocks and bottles at mostly police vehicles and the police. Eventually, the Police Department calls a press conference see News Week’s article here: “Public Emergency Declared After Baltimore Rioters Burn Police Cars, Loot Stores.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts steps forward and states, in part: “We have young adults here who are 15, 16, 17 years old…parents take control of your kids,” which is very significant.

The media is now closely on the ground, telecasting worldwide as events continue to unfold. News reporters abound, capturing all sides of the story with expert news analysis.

As the melee intensifies rioters, now including adults, throw bricks and bottles at police officers injuring many. Some of the officers are seriously injured and hospitalized but later recovers. Local businesses are looted and devastating fires set to many of their buildings. Firefighters are beleaguered by rioters cutting their fire hoses, but not deterred.

By nightfall, Baltimore’s mayor and governor standing together announce a one-week curfew starting the next day, and the National Guard is summoned.

On Tuesday, the next day, concerned residents are out helping with the clean-up. Civic and church leaders vow to renew corporate relationships, raise the necessary funds to start rebuilding the nearly built senior housing and community center that was burned down, though the culprit(s) remain unknown, and to help heal their city.

At the press conference Captain John Eric Kowalczyk of the Baltimore PD cites their decision not to use excessive force on Monday: “I don’t think that there’s anyone in the country that would expect us to deploy automatic weapons and armoured vehicles to an event with 13, 14 and 15 year olds. That’s not what people expect from their police department,” which affirms American values.

As Baltimore Riots, Police Show Remarkable Restraint

CNN anchor Don Lemon would later acknowledge. Yet, seemingly lost amid the blaming of authorities for not responding fast enough to stop Monday’s devastation was the incredible restraint the frontline police officers held in the midst of being pelted by bricks and bottles of unknown substances, despite injuries to fellow officers.

Instead, in sharp contrast to Dr. King’s nonviolent tactics in the 60s, the police were now the nonviolent ones while the protesters were the violent ones, truly a complete role reversal. Who would have thought in the turbulent 60s that a police force would ever deploy King’s nonviolent tactics during a riot, but they did in 2015 Baltimore that day. Only in America!

Thus, the wisdom of Mayor Stefanie and the Baltimore PD was not lost on all of us watching CNN that day. Knowing that children were involved and too many years of pent-up rage was poised to explode across America, police nonviolence was, indeed, the best tactic ever.

So hats off and a bow to Mayor Stefanie Rawlings-Blake and the Baltimore Police Department.

And a big thumbs-up to Toya Graham, Baltimore’s mom of the hour. Who, in fear for his life, unabashedly smacks her teenage son upside-the-head several times while snatching him away from those throwing rocks at the police, proving a mother’s love knows no boundaries.

The Right to be Loved

Love is the world’s greatest power; without love we become the poorest of the poor. Of all the rights honored or should be honored in society is the right to be loved (respected).

First, let’s be clear: there is a marked difference between love and pleasure.

Pleasure, while temporary at best, is getting a new car, buying a house, sex with the right person, a nice vacation, a good job, a nice meal, a hot bath at day’s end, and so forth.

Love, though not of this world, is always a gift usually found in a good friend, a faithful spouse, a generous boss, an inspiring teacher, a devoted parent, our children, the Arts, and even a benevolent government (possibly society’s greatest need).

Sadly, when we deny love’s presence we allow hatred into our hearts that ultimately leads to egotism and deceit, a sure path to ruin if we don’t recognize it and change.

Hatred is a very dangerous emotion that not only will cause us to self-destruct, but often seeks to either hurt or destroy others in our path.

Hence, the historic uprisings of Stonewall, Ferguson and Baltimore against unfettered police brutalities that have now spawned a new Civil Rights movement. At its vanguard is the need for protections of the right to be respected by our government at all levels, at all times.

Freddie Gray’s Last Arrest

A very sad story. Some tend to theorize that Freddie ran because he had something to hide owing to his extensive police record. Yet, maybe Freddie Gray ran for a different reason. Fear of someone planting illegal drugs on him perhaps, which Freddie had tended to believe, or so he said according to one who knew him.

In a Daily Beast article, The Last Time Freddie Gray Was Arrested by Justin Glawe: Quentin Reid, Freddie’s last bail bondsman, basically states that just prior to Freddie Gray’s last arrest he had been arrested for heroin possession and was out on bail, and had said that dope had been planted on him. Sadly, the charges against Freddie Gray have now been dropped: Abated by death,” so states the court document.

Sadder still, seems most of society tend to write off people like Freddie Gray. Reid basically observes that given Freddie’s poor education and his oppressive environment, the young man never had a chance. Yet Freddie Gray was only 25 years of age; with proper help he just might have turned his life around, much like many such people before him.

The good news is, the death of Freddie Gray, while tragic, has ignited a spark in the right place, at the right time, and amongst the right people who are willing and able to bring about definitive change in our much-needed police departments nationwide.

Among these changes, here is hoping that a communication line is established, by law, in mayor’s offices, states attorney offices and up to the department of justice where citizens are encouraged to report their perceived issues of unresolved police abuses and be heard!

As a unique method to curb routine abuses of police power, that can turn deadly, and to save hateful cops from themselves, police accountability to its citizens, whose tax-dollar pay their salaries, is long overdue. Thus, a citizen’s easy report to the aforesaid offices must include assigning a document number and such for future reference.

In this way, what Freddie Gray was unable to accomplish in life, a direct line of communication between the people and their government as to police brutality and such is fully implemented in view of his tragic death.

After days that went into intensive months of a call for justice, Monday November 24, at around half past 8 pm, would be a sad moment for those of us anxiously awaiting the grand jury’s decision to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the tragic killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed person barely out of his teens just trying to get home.

While many in the news continued to voice their doubts given the local authorities’ brazen disregard for public demands to do the right thing, still there were those of us hoping that most of the grand jury members would follow reason, ignore that tribal impulse to support racism’s views and indict Wilson on at least one of the charges, which ranged from degrees of murder to involuntary manslaughter. But, of course, they didn’t, and thus failed to indict him.

As I watched the people’s reactions on CNN after hearing Robert McCulloch, the county prosecutor announce the grand jury’s decision of no indictment for Officer Wilson in Michael Brown’s shooting, I had to fight back the tears as the subtle wailing and moaning of the frustrated protesters (most likely not much older than Michael was) managed to briefly waft above the noisy crowd. Soon, too many hours of repressed anxiety would ultimately give rise to chaos, violence and the destruction of local businesses that serve their community.

A Brutal Disregard for Humanity

Throughout the ages though never a good idea, seems chaos, violence, the burning and looting of local stock is not unusual when public demand for justice is arrogantly ignored by its leaders, and the people are left frustrated and hurt beyond belief. Sadly, Ferguson’s local leaders (from the governor on down) knew this and could have prevented it. But, they didn’t! Which reeks of a brutal disregard for humanity, or so it seems.

As most reasonable persons well know by now, if they so chose, via cable news and detailed articles on the web from the Washington Post, here, the Root, New York Daily News, Dorian Johnson’s grand jury testimony in September, Darren Wilson’s grand jury testimony and such, the evidence against Officer Wilson supports the public’s (and now the world’s) demands for justice for Michael Brown: An innocent, unarmed person who simply did not deserve to be seen as less than human and then gunned down like a mad animal in the street…which is what Officer Wilson, the local authorities and other misguided folks would have us all believe!

And so while we patiently wait for justice for Mike Brown from our Justice Department, we urge those in our great society to rise above the primal instinct to defend tribalism (one’s own group) and realize that as an open and free democracy we are all in this together. Thus, justice for one is justice for all, and justice denied lets injustice thrive where we least imagine it to be.

The Gift of Humanity

A simple way out of tribalism and racism…always see another’s humanity first!   And do take care to remember our common humanity at all times. This is likely how the ancient custom of speaking, particularly when passing another or that of saying “good morning” at day’s beginning or “good night” at day’s end, came into practice in human affairs.

Finally we learn that to honor another’s humanity is to realize our own, which is a sacred gift that awakens our innermost happiness and keeps us civilized.

“Let brotherly [and sisterly] love continue.” ~Hebrews 13:1

Though democracy is just a word, it is a good word that symbolizes social equality, freedom and human rights for all. Thus the concept of democracy is now widely embraced by most evolving societies. For at its polar opposite lies tyranny: the ultimate destroyer of peace, justice and a clear reverence for life. And so we of the Modern World naturally keep marching toward democracy, both individually and collectively, as we must.

Sadly, those who have lost their way keep rejecting democracy in the name of something they have yet to fully articulate or even understand, yet keep supporting terrorism worldwide. And so, as Jesus once predicted, today’s tragic “wars and rumors of wars” seem endless…at least for now!

Of course, the good news is the world has grown tired of war’s brutalities that are now being reflected back to it daily by advanced news media such as CNN and others.  Thus the world is now ready to take the next step and fully honor democracy worldwide.

Hence the founding and continuance of life-supporting organizations such as The United Nations (UN), The World Health Organization (WHO), The International Criminal Court (ICC), and The Peace Corps are but great examples of humanity’s supreme ability to form and sustain a more perfect union worldwide! And so the best is yet to come.

Meanwhile, despite the ego-driven bickering, and even the systemic corruption, that seems to overwhelm a democratic government’s daily affairs from time-to-time, in the final analysis democracy does, indeed, provide the climate to let brotherly and sisterly love continue. And it is this that freedom loving people worldwide must never lose sight of.

So let us continue offering prayers for those suffering and for world peace…it truly works!
