In all the moments of my life, God has been right there beside me. The truth of God's love is not that He allows bad things to happen. It's His promise that He'll be there with us when they do."

If you can recognize this and exploit it, *voila!* Control of the dog."

Yet when those kind of bad things happen nowadays, the government tries to do bad things to phones and the Net.

Author: Sakura Tsukuba
