You don't give a damn what they suffer. All you care about is yourself" - Julia"

Imagine the products you can create based on the contents of your book. Imagine the opportunities to share your knowledge with more people by speaking, training, coaching. You have an important message to share and the world is waiting..."

I cried, gesturing with my hands toward the side of the bridge where I once lay. "How is that possible?"When he didn't respond to my questions, I probed him further, trying to get him to answer me.

"Be careful in the future, Ramsey."Then he took off running, and after a few seconds, he was gone from my sight..."

The church knows it is saving the world when it undertakes to speak also of such things."
