Hello Ashleigh

Thank you sharing such a thought provoking and revealing post, that provides answers to the questions on the minds of so many people. There is no doubting that the major tools used by those who want to control others is terror and fear. They would rather have those they seek to lord it over to always remain in the dark. Information is power and it remains the key instrument of change.

We must continue to share, learn and speak out so that freedom and peace will thrive.

Warmly,
Greengirl

This story has exploded today all over social medial and the news...it took too long, but at least now the world is paying attention.
