  1. There is so much to comment on and, comment about. I wish everyone could read this blog. It is absolutely horrifying to learn about the tragedies happening within our military! The America we have known, has fallen apart! We are ready to be masterminded by a power. Only the gospel of Jesus Christ can clean up sins, make us strong and re-unite us against the ‘evil’ mastermind! http://www.americaincoffee10.wordpress.com
