,“At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men at war with good, and some are good struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes all you need is one.

'Blessed are the hearts that can bend.
They shall never be broken.'

then there's no healing.
And if there's no healing,
then there's no learning..
