4. Preach it Sister!

All those and more.

And there are those that would even burn down your Church. Your one refuge. The only reward being the knowledge that at least your suffering is closer to that of God.

There are those people. We must speak out against them. We must share our human kindness...

We are all equal in the eyes of God, I truly believe...
