ISIS fighter killed by drone bomb he was operating after it ran low on battery and flew back

Feel good story.

From The Sun: An ISIS terrorist blew himself up when the drone bomb he was operating ran low on battery — and flew back.

The idiotic killer was targeting allied forces after the Battle for Mosul in northern Iraq.

He had customised his weapon to carry plastic explosive and planned to detonate it by troops based in the city. But his plan backfired because he had forgotten to sufficiently charge the device.

Civilian drones — as weaponised by ISIS — automatically ‘boomerang’ back to their point of launch when they start to run out of power. They are programmed to return to prevent owners losing their machines.

UK troops — including the SAS — are training Iraqi soldiers as part of Operation Shader and are plagued by drone attacks.

A security source said: “We receive intelligence from locals about enemy activity and tactics. We learned this idiot had wired up his drone with explosives but was killed when it’s batteries ran low and it flew home. With a weak signal for some reason it detonated over his head.

“This caused quite a laugh for us but the drone threat is very real. The fighter killed himself last year due to his own ineptitude, but is still keeping moral high today.” ISIS has become advanced in its use of drone weapons, which it dubs its ‘air force’.

The battle for Mosul ended officially in 2017 but British troops are still training Iraqis there.
Although the battle for the city was won, the drone threat is ongoing.

Customised commercial versions — such as the £1,200 Chinese-made DJI Phantom — are used as flying bombs or to carry munitions to drop.
The source said a common, simple and effective tactic is to push a hand grenade — with pin pulled — in a steel tube attached to the aircraft. Once over the target the drone is remotely dipped so the grenade slides out of the tube, releasing the trigger mechanism.

Some grenades are adapted with fins attached to help them fly more accurately.

Iraqi security forces then came up with their own response, by attaching shuttlecock feathers to their own grenades, again dropped by drone, to help guide the munitions to the ground.

The source added: “Drone warfare is hugely effective for insurgents.

Sunday Devotional: Only a few will be saved

Luke 13:22-30

Jesus passed through towns and villages,
teaching as he went and making his way to Jerusalem.
Someone asked him,
“Lord, will only a few people be saved?”
He answered them,
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate,
for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter
but will not be strong enough.
After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door,
then will you stand outside knocking and saying,
‘Lord, open the door for us.’
He will say to you in reply,
‘I do not know where you are from.
And you will say,
‘We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.’
Then he will say to you,
‘I do not know where you are from.
Depart from me, all you evildoers!’
And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth
when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
and all the prophets in the kingdom of God
and you yourselves cast out.
And people will come from the east and the west
and from the north and the south
and will recline at table in the kingdom of God.
For behold, some are last who will be first,
and some are first who will be last.”

The Pew Research Center’s 2014 Religious Landscape Study found that:

  • More than 7-in-10 (72%) Americans believed in heaven — defined as “where people who have led good lives are eternally rewarded” — only 2% fewer than in 2007.
  • A larger majority (82%) of religiously-affiliated Americans believed in heaven:
    • 85% of Christians in 2017, 2% more than in 2007:
      • 84% of Protestants
      • 82% of Catholics
      • 74% of Orthodox Christians
    • Among non-Christian religions, 95% of Mormons, 85% of Muslims, 51% of Hindus, 38% of Jews, and 36% of Buddhists believed in heaven.
  • In contrast, 37% of Americans who were religiously-unaffiliated or “nones” believed in heaven. Of those, only 5% of atheists and 14% of agnostics believed.

Note: The 2014 Pew survey also found that religious “nones” outnumbered Christians among Democrats and Democratic-leaning adults, and that although the “nones” had increased among Republicans, they were still outnumbered by Christians, especially by evangelicals.

According to a 2016 LifeWay Research survey of 3,000 U.S. adults with a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of ±2%, a majority (60%) said everyone eventually goes to heaven, including 64% of evangelical Christians. Indeed, a 2005 ABC News poll had found that among the 89% of Americans who believed in Heaven, 85% thought they would personally go there, such is our preening narcissism.

Today’s Gospel reading from Luke 13, however, is a sober reminder that we flatter ourselves when we imagine we are destined for Heaven, for our Lord Jesus Christ said the gate is “narrow” and many “will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough.”

Recall that although we read and hear about near-death experiences (NDE) of what appears to be Heaven, there are NDE accounts of being in a dark place, full of demons. As an example, during his 2004 quadruple bypass surgery, Bill Clinton had a frightening NDE in which he found himself in a dark hellish place. As he recounted in an interview on ABC’s Primetime Live:

“I saw, like, dark masks crushing, like, death masks being crushed, in series, and then I’d see these great circles of light and then, like, Hillary’s picture or Chelsea’s face would appear on the light, and then they’d fly off into the dark.”

See:

The road to Heaven is a rigorous and demanding one. Afterall, Jesus did say “I have come to set the earth on fire” (Luke 12:49). So we are to look upon our life on this mortal coil as a trial by fire, wherein we must rid “ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us” (Hebrews 12:1).

Hebrews 12:5-7, 11-13

Brothers and sisters,
You have forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as children:
“My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord
or lose heart when reproved by him;
for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines;
he scourges every son he acknowledges.”
Endure your trials as “discipline”;
God treats you as sons.
For what “son” is there whom his father does not discipline?
At the time,
all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain,
yet later it brings the peaceful fruit of righteousness
to those who are trained by it.

So strengthen your drooping hands and your weak knees.
Make straight paths for your feet,
that what is lame may not be disjointed but healed.

Only the holy go to Heaven.

I want to be holy, and I want you all to be holy. So let’s help each other trod that hard and “narrow” path of goodness, no matter the slings and arrows, the trials and tribulations. And at all times, “keep our eyes fixed on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:1, 2), and tell Him you love Him with your whole heart, your whole soul, your whole mind, and with all your strength.

Rejoice that we have lived to see another glorious Sunday!

And may the love and peace and joy and goodness of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

~Eowyn

Did the FBI stage the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting?

The term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag is used as a ruse de guerre.

As the term is used in contemporary America, a false flag is an event that is  contrived and manipulated by the authorities to achieve a covert agenda, e.g., gun control. The intended result is a “rallying around the flag” effect, wherein an inflamed “useful idiot” populace is mobilized to support the covert agenda. The public is given an untruthful version of the event by government and/or the media, whether it be about the perpetrator(s) and/or victim(s). That real people actually died or were injured doesn’t mean the event isn’t a false flag, so long as the event meets the two defining and necessary conditions for a false flag incident:

  1. The public is given an untruthful version of the event.
  2. The purpose of which is to achieve some covert agenda.

We are told that on Sunday night, Oct. 1, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada, 64-year-old retired accountant and multimillionaire Stephen Craig Paddock fired an automatic weapon from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel at an outdoor Route 91 Harvest country western music concert across the street, killing 58 people and wounding more than 500.

If the Las Vegas shooting massacre was a false flag, it would mean there are people in government who could kill innocent people and inflict trauma on the American people to achieve their ends. That, in turn, means that our government is in the hands of people so diabolical, calling them psychopaths does not begin to describe what they are. That is a frightening thought.

But it is a thought not entirely alien to America’s Founding Fathers who fashioned a polity based on a view of human nature as inherently selfish, and of government as a necessary evil that must be constrained and delimited. To quote James Madison in The Federalist No. 51:

What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external or internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place oblige it to control itself.

Even with checks and balances in place, the U.S. government is known to have undertaken and planned false flags. An example is the Gulf of Tonkin incident on August 4, 1964. We were told that without provocation, the North Vietnamese attacked the U.S.S. Maddox and U.S.S. Turner Joy destroyers. Congress took the bait and passed a joint resolution pre-approving military deployments without a declaration of war, thereby giving President Lyndon Johnson a free ticket to wage war in Vietnam. It turned out no Vietnamese boats were even in the gulf at the time of the alleged attack.

Then there was Operation Northwoods, a false flag of stunning scope, audacity and deviousness which was proposed in 1962 by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and approved by the head of every branch of the armed forces. Government operatives were to undertake acts of terrorism against U.S. military and civilian targets in Guantanamo Bay, Miami, other Florida cities, and even in Washington, D.C. Hostile acts including sinking U.S. ships, having fake Cuban MIGs attack a U. S. Air Force aircraft, hijacking and shooting down a chartered civil airliner, and gunning down civilians in the streets would be blamed on the Fidel Castro government, which would be used as pretexts for a “military intervention” against Cuba. Thankfully, President John F. Kennedy rejected the proposals. See “Operation Northwoods: A true U.S. government conspiracy for those who mock conspiracy theories“.

In the case of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting massacre, some question whether the FBI, part of the Deep State, had staged the shootings.

To begin, about 16 months before the shooting, in a report for Business Insider on June 9, 2016, news intern Caroline Simon sounded the alarm that “The FBI is ‘manufacturing terrorism cases’ on a greater scale than ever before“. She wrote:

The FBI has ramped up its use of sting operations in terrorism cases, dispatching undercover agents to pose as jihadists and ensnare Americans suspected of backing ISIS, aka the Islamic State, Daesh, or ISIL . . . .

In many cases, agents will seek out people who have somehow demonstrated radical views, and then coax them into plotting an act of terrorism — often providing weapons and money. Before the suspects can carry out their plans, though, they’re arrested.

But critics say that the FBI’s tactics serve to entrap only individuals who would never have committed any violence without the government’s instigation.

“They’re manufacturing terrorism cases,” Michael German, a former undercover agent with the FBI who now researches national-security law at New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice, told The Times . . . .

Stephen Downs, an attorney . . . said that the FBI often targets particularly vulnerable people, such as those with mental disabilities . . . who are genuinely psychotic, who are taking medication . . . .

On October 2, 2017, the morning after the night of the Las Vegas mass shooting, right on cue ISIS claimed responsibility for the shooting massacre. As reported by the New York Post, ISIS’s news agency Amaq said, “The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State” and that “The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago.”

The FBI quickly dismissed ISIS’s claim of responsibility.

On the same day as ISIS’s claim, FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse said at a news conference there is no evidence that Stephen Paddock was associated with any international militant group and that “We have determined at this point no connection to an international terrorist organization.”

The FBI’s alacrity in dismissing ISIS’s claim of responsibility was particularly impressive given the fact that the Bureau, at the time more than eight months into its investigation of Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with the Russians to sabotage the 2016 presidential election, still could not definitively tell the American people that the allegation is fictive.

Adding to the confusion, on the same day of ISIS’s claim of responsibility and the FBI’s quick dismissal of the claim, InfoWars reported that:

The Las Vegas shooter didn’t commit suicide as the mainstream media is reporting, but was killed by a FBI hostage rescue team who also found Antifa literature in his hotel room, according to a source linked to the team.

The FBI team took the suspect out after he opened fired on them, according to the source, and afterwards the team found photos taken in the Middle East of a woman linked to the suspect, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.

Do these look like the same man to you?

A “deep-level intelligence insider” also told Infowars the mass shooting was “very, very strange”:

  • The shooter, Stephen Paddock, was “an average 64-year-old white male with no criminal record.”
  • Paddock’s brother described him as an average person who was not into firearms and never owned that many guns. But Paddock’s Mandalay Bay hotel room was filled with guns, including several long guns. Where did those guns come from?
  • The attack clearly had been “pre-planned” and the target group, a country-music concert, “was specifically chosen” — a group that represents traditional America, patriotic, God-fearing, pro-Second amendment, pro-Constitution and anti-NWO (New World Order) Americans whom Obama derisively described as “clinging to their guns and religion.”

Noting the fortuitous coincidence that “the mainstream media was already in Las Vegas to cover the OJ Simpson release right before the shooting occurred,” Infowars concluded that the possibility of the Las Vegas shooting being a false flag must now be considered.

On October 5, 2017, four days after the Las Vegas mass shooting, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange referenced Caroline Simon’s Business Insider report when he implied in a since deleted tweet that the shooting had been staged by the FBI. Assange wrote:

Almost all “terror” plots are created by the FBI as part of its business model.

What is the business of the FBI? Extracting tax. What does it need to do that? A stable threat. Prob? Real terrorists are sporadic & make FBI look weak. Solution? Make them.

Assange ended his tweet with a link to Caroline Simon’s Business Insider report that “The FBI is ‘manufacturing terrorism cases’ on a greater scale than ever before.”

Returning from vacation, Amsterdam businessman found his property occupied by 40 migrants

The Dutch-language AT5 reports, August 19, 2019, that returning from vacation last week, Salih Ozcan, a businessman in Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, got a big surprise.

First, he found piles of garbage in front of his business property in Westpoort, a borough of Amsterdam.

Inside was an even worse surprise.

Some 40 “migrants” of We Are Here — a group of failed or refused asylum seekers — were squatting inside the property that Ozcan intends for his car company. He had first rented out the space, but “a bad tenant” used it for growing weed. After he evicted the tenant, he had the building refurbished.

When Ozcan tried to enter his property, one of the migrants blocked his entrance, told him to leave the premises, and threatened to call the police.

Ozcan exclaimed incredulously: “Do I have to leave my own building ?!”

A bewildered Ozcan told AT5I am a small entrepreneur who uses this property for his business. Because of them, I now don’t have a business. It’s a very bad feeling. I have no words for it at all. I can understand those people somewhat, but they don’t understand me at all. Unbelievable that this is possible in the Netherlands.”

Referring to the piles of trash outside, Ozcan said: “This is too crazy for words. Only rats and mice come here.”

The police said the squatters would not be evacuated “as a matter of urgency” and that on average, a property owner has to wait six weeks to evict. 

Ozcan meanwhile has hired a lawyer.

Muslim cleric killed by cow he tried to ritually slaughter

Qurban is the ritual animal sacrifice of a livestock animal during Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice) — one of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and considered the holier of the two. In 2019, the Feast of the Sacrifice was August 11.

According to News Punch, Eid al-Adha is “the Islamic festival that involves killing millions of helpless animals (sheep, goats, cows, camels) that are forced to have their necks cut so they bleed to death slowly while fully conscious and writhing in pain, which can take several minutes depending on the size of the animal.”

Asip Hasani reports for The Jakarta Post that on Sunday, August 11, 2019 at Miftahul Jannah Mosque in Blitar, East Java, a Muslim cleric named Sureki, 64, who was set to slaughter a cow as animal sacrifice for Eid al-Adha, was struck and killed by the cow.

Mosque caretaker Farhan said the incident started when one of several cows escaped from its tethers and ran full speed for about 100 meters (328 ft.). Sureki was supposed to slaughter 4 sacrificial cows and 17 goats when a “big and fierce” cow broke its leash, “suddenly ran toward him and struck [Sureki’s] chin with its head.”

Sureki fell backward with the back of his head hitting the pavement of the mosque yard. Knocked unconscious, he was immediately admitted to the hospital.

After undergoing head surgery and three days in a coma, Sureki died on Wednesday evening at Ngudi Waluyo Hospital.

Below is a video showing the cruelty of the Muslim ritual of animal sacrifice.

Miss Michigan stripped of title for wearing MAGA hat and refusing to wear hijab

On July 18, 2019, Kathy Zhu, the Chinese-American winner of the Miss Michigan pageant had her title revoked for being politically incorrect.

Her big transgressions?

She is a Trump supporter who wears the MAGA hat but refuses to wear a hijab — a head, face, or body covering worn by Muslim women.

Kathy Zhu, 20, an immigrant from China and a political science major at the University of Michigan, committed the unpardonable sin of refusing to wear a hijab.

In 2018 at a Muslim Student Association booth celebrating World Hijab Day, Zhu politely declined a Muslim student’s offer to let Zhu try on a hijab headscarf. Zhu then tweeted:

There is a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus. So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?

The Muslim student launched a Twitter campaign to have Zhu expelled:

Let’s get this girl expelled. Email [the office of student conduct] and send them Kathy’s [Zhu] tweet, including the photos in her thread. Ignorance will not be tolerated on my campus.

Zhu incurred more ire from the Left when she responded to a tweet blaming black homicide rates on “white privilege”. Referring to the 2016 FBI statistic that 89.5% of black homicide victims are murdered by other blacks, Zhu wrote:

Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community before blaming others.

For this, Zhu was branded a “racist.”

The final straw for the Miss World America (MWA) pageant was a photo posted on Zhu’s Facebook page showing her wearing a MAGA hat.

Citing MWA’s requirement that pageant participants must be of “good character” and their “background” not bring “disrepute” to MWA, Laurie DeJack, state director of MWA Michigan, notified Zhu that her Miss Michigan title is revoked because “It has been brought to the attention of Miss World America that your social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content.”

Zhu is an unabashed conservative who has been featured on CBC, RT News, The Rebel, InfoWars, and BBC as a political commentator.

On July 26, 2019, at a Women for Trump luncheon organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition in Bloomfield Hills, Zhu was greeted with a standing ovation. One woman screamed: “We love you!”

Zhu recounted the sudden epiphany that made her switch her beliefs from liberal to conservative. She said she used to be a Democrat, but only because her friends told her so. It wasn’t until she did her own research that she decided to become a Trump supporter and conservative political commentator. Zhu said:

“I am so glad that the story got to light because conservative voices are being censored. They are being banned on social media for talking about their opinions. It seems harder to come out as a conservative than it does as being gay. People wanted to ridicule me. There were so many times that my account got hacked from the left.”

Zhu said she is committed to free speech and stands by both of her “racist” tweets: “I think that hate speech falls under free speech. If you are a hateful person you are going to get the criticism for it, but you should still be allowed to say such things.”

NYT editorial: Federal government should require Section-8 housing be built in ‘affluent’ communities

In July 2018, the editorial board of the New York Times abandoned all journalistic objectivity with an editorial calling on the Democrat Party to go to war against President Trump, using mafia “Godfather” tactics.

But the plain truth is that, unless you are a “useless idiot” who swears by and only reads that piece of rag like an attorney I know, the New York Times (NYT) had abandoned objectivity long before July 2018. See:

We should, therefore, take a recent NYT editorial and its recommendation for what it is — yet another big dose of biased, leftist toxin.

On July 7, 2019, NYT published the editorial, “A New Approach on Housing Affordability,” penned by its editorial board, which “represents the opinions of the board, its editor and the publisher.”

The editorial begins by stating the problem, that of the high and rising cost of rental housing in the United States, and bemoans how millions cannot afford to live in the neighborhoods that they want. 

The editorial then commends Democratic presidential candidates (Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren) who are addressing this problem with these policy proposals:

  1. Increase federal subsidies for renters, at a cost of $93 billion (Kamala Harris) to $134 billion a year (Cory Booker) and more (Julian Castro).
  2. Increase federal subsidies for the construction of affordable housing (Booker and Castro).
  3. Increase housing construction by having the federal government put pressure on local governments to allow more “development” (Elizabeth Warren). 

The NYT editorial opines that while increasing housing construction (“more market-rate development”) is a worthy goal, that isn’t enough — “Market-rate development, however, is not a sufficient solution.

The problems are two:

  1. “Wealthy residents” are the most resistant to “development”. In fact, “the states most resistant to allowing housing construction are the strongholds of the Democratic Party, in the Northeast and along the Pacific Coast, and the most resistant voters are the wealthy residents of those states who provide so much of the funding for Democratic presidential campaigns.”
  2. Even if the federal government increases rent and housing subsidies, “poor children” would still not be “raised in economically diverse neighborhoods” with better schools, but instead would live “in neighborhoods with high levels of poverty.”

The New York Times’ proposal is to revive and expand a policy of the Obama administration, wherein “poor” renters were given large vouchers to move to areas with more expensive housing and better schools, by having the “irristible force” of the federal government require “affluent communities to accept affordable housing projects.” 

In other words, if the NYT has its way, the federal government will compel local governments to construct Section 8 apartments and high-risers (“affordable housing”) in middle-class and “affluent” communities of single-family homes. Those “affordable” apartments and high-risers will be inhabited by the “poor” — among whom are gangbangers, illegal aliens and “refugees”.

This is socialism and the UN Agenda 21 on steroids.

President fauxcahontis Elizabeth Warren would admit 800% more refugees

Sam Dorman reports for Fox News that yesterday, July 11, 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released a sweeping immigration plan that would dramatically increase the number of refugees admitted into the United States by nearly 800% from FY 2018 and 250% from even the Obama years.

In FY 2018, because of President Trump’s bans on refugees from a number of countries in the Middle East deemed security threats, the number of refugee admissions fell to record lows to about 22,000. Warren decried Trump’s restrictions, calling it an “abuse” of his authority. She said she would increase the number of refugee admissions to 125,000 in her first year as President, which would be an increase of 795% from FY 2018.

Warren’s plan also includes:

(1) Repealing a law requiring local police to enforce federal immigration laws, as well as an end to “unnecessary” detention. She said: “We already have the tools to effectively track and monitor individuals without shoving them into cages and camps along the border. As President, I’ll issue guidance ensuring that detention is only used where it is actually necessary because an individual poses a flight or safety risk. Let there be no ambiguity on this: if you are violating the basic rights of immigrants, now or in the future, a Warren administration will hold you accountable.”

(2) Expand legal immigration.

(3) Decriminalize illegal border crossings. Warren said that as President, she would “take executive action to provide a measure of protection for those who are undocumented. I’ll work with Congress to pass broad-reaching reform, but I’m also prepared to move forward with executive action if Congress refuses to act.”

(4) Alleviate the migrant crisis by giving $1.5 billion a year in foreign aid to Central and South America.

Sunday Devotional: I am sending you like lambs among wolves

Luke 10:1-12, 16

At that time the Lord appointed seventy-two others
whom he sent ahead of him in pairs
to every town and place he intended to visit.
He said to them,
“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest.
Go on your way;
behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves.
Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals;
and greet no one along the way.
Into whatever house you enter, first say,
‘Peace to this household.’
If a peaceful person lives there,
your peace will rest on him;
but if not, it will return to you.
Stay in the same house
and eat and drink what is offered to you,
for the laborer deserves his payment.
Do not move about from one house to another.
Whatever town you enter and they welcome you,
eat what is set before you,
cure the sick in it and say to them,
‘The kingdom of God is at hand for you.’
Whatever town you enter and they do not receive you,
go out into the streets and say,
‘The dust of your town that clings to our feet,
even that we shake off against you.’
Yet know this: the kingdom of God is at hand.
I tell you,
it will be more tolerable for Sodom
on that day than for that town….
Whoever listens to you listens to me.
Whoever rejects you rejects me.
And whoever rejects me
rejects the one who sent me.”

Our Lord said: “I am sending you like lambs among wolves.

He also warned us: “And you will be hated by everyone because of my name” (Mark 13:13) and “If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you” (John 15:18).

So it shouldn’t surprise us that Christians are being persecuted across the world and even in First-Amendment America:

But for enduring the world’s hatred and persecution, we are told to “rejoice” because “your names are written in heaven”. (Luke 10:18) As Jeremiah 17:7-8 says:

Thus says the LORD:
Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
whose hope is the LORD.
He is like a tree planted beside the waters
that stretches out its roots to the stream:
it fears not the heat when it comes;
its leaves stay green;
in the year of drought it shows no distress,
but still bears fruit.

Be strong!

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,
