"God, the source of truth, created life out of love. God, the source of knowledge and wisdom, gifted each new born with the spirit of choice. It is the responsibility of the child to choose wisely, act accordingly, and preserve this spirit. Don't allow tyranny, greed, egnorance and other forces to snatch your gift away."
This page was created out of this spirit, and the needs of our world.
