Sunshine Here. Always reading your wonderful updates. You are a sweetheart. Wish more people were like you. That would have brought lots of peace and harmony to this world.

I always wonder why fight in the name of religion and God. We are not believers anymore tho we both were brought up catholic when we were kids by hard core catholic parents.

We don't deny any God or religion as long as we are not forced in a conversation to take any gods side and advices to convert to any religion.

It is so wonderful to see that at least few souls are trying hard to keep humans together under humanity and not differentiate or discriminate by what they believe or teach the followers to hate the people who don't believe in there god.

Thank you for sharing. We will have all our support from our hearts to people who advocate humanity, love and world peace.

Loved the song Mi'Ma'amakim "Out Of The Depths" in your page.

Hugs and peace
