Re: [MOL] The Power of People Debate



Sorry, you peaked my interest.  We will never change the government until we
change ourselves with-in.  We are also to blame for not taking the proper
care of our brothers.  Our giving has shrunk.  We give less to our Church to
help the poor, we think of our own needs more and we also lay blame on
others.  We have but ourselves to blame.   lillian


We invite you to take a look at our Album.

more....
