Hixian Days Revisited

To survive we are taking out all the Fire and Brimstone and replacing it with Love and Peace.
There are only 7 Days to go.

Love is the Only Miracle there is.

Remember Children of Violence (it's Just a Ride) we can step off any time we want to.

On this day Steven Biko would have been 66 had he not been brutally murdered for wanting freedom.

The 18th of December is a Day of Infamy:

218 BC – Second Punic WarBattle of the Trebia – Hannibal's Carthaginian forces defeat those of the Roman Republic.
