He said, 'Preaching came to me and I ran. But it caught me, so I preach.' I think acting is the same way. I always tell kids when I visit schools that I believe God gives us all a vocation, the thing we are put here on earth to do. The trick is to make your vocation your occupation, if you can.

Toured the country with an interactive portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth for 10 years to houses of worship of all denominations. The "blood"-stained uniform Bill wore as Ranger Dale in the film 'Dismal' was a high-bid item when it was auctioned off at the 2008 Horrorfind Convention in Washington, D.C. by Scares That Care, a non-profit organization that raises money for children's cancer research and care. For his 2007 audition for the role of Adolf Eichmann in the World War II drama, The Glass House, Bill borrowed a reproduction Nazi SS uniform, jackboots and an antique German Iron Cross from a museum curator. As he walked from his car to the audition in downtown Los Angeles, he was spat on by passers-by and verbally assailed from passing cars for 3 blocks. Spoofed his "killer" image in a 2010 commercial for a ScreenplayCoverage.com with the tag line 'Killer Scripts Don't Just Happen.'. The facial scarring that gives Bill his menacing look is largely a result of a childhood bicycle accident which necessitated reconstructive surgery. Bill's torso is nearly twice the average length for a male his height. His prominent ribcage and exposed bone structure have branded him "that guy with the creepy torso" in numerous dark & shirtless film roles. A lifelong Trekkie, Bill was thrilled that his make-up artist for the Hallmark Channel movie, The Shunning (2011) was Dean Jones, who was responsible for Rene Auberjonois's character of "Odo" on the series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). Worked with two of Dick Van Dyke's grandsons in A Haunting in Salem (2011). Shane Van Dyke directed and Carey Van Dyke co-starred with Bill. As the Facebook stalker in 2011's Take This Lollipop (2011), Bill wears the t-shirt and boots from his role as the cannibal "Dale" in 2009's Dismal (2009). Both were gifts from the "Dismal" wardrobe department and have since appeared in three of Oberst's film and television appearances. As "Abraham Lincoln" in Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies (2012), Bill Oberst Jr. battles "John Wilkes Booth", played by actor Jason Vail, who also who played "Booth" in the original "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter" book trailer. Oberst lived in isolation during filming of his role as cult leader Simon Leach in Children Of Sorrow, with no internet or phone access, speaking little except on camera and retreating to Leach's office set in between takes. Bill was the last actor to ride Scamp, Jason Issac's horse from The Patriot and a veteran of dozens of period films, before the prolific movie horse's death in 2012. Bill rides Scamp as the bounty hunter Burrell in director Chris Eska's The Retrieval. Oberst's clown make-up in Circus Of The Dead is inspired by that of his cinematic role model, Lon Chaney, in the 1924 film He Who Gets Slapped. Sara Karloff inscribed a photo of her father Boris Karloff to Oberst with the phrase "Bill, that's NOT a scary face!" after meeting the actor and finding him to be "just like my father; not at all scary up close.". A copy of John Landis' 2011 book Monsters In The Movies signed by Landis "To Bill Oberst Jr - One Scary Badass" is one of Oberst's most prized possessions. cc: Aaron Savvy Matt Chassin Actor Bill Oberst Jr.

History Of Revival
IN EVERY GENERATION GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL to bring revival to His people and spiritual awakening to nations. In almost all cases, those movements of the Spirit were most evident among young people. Most modern day surveys indicate that up to 85 pe Read more ...
rcent of all people who get saved are converted before age 30, and most before age 25. One preacher described young people as "kindling" which helps set fire to "old logs." As we see the following accounts, history records the role of young people in the revivals which have occurred over the centuries.   Old Testament Revivals   * Joshua and the generation under 20."Your little ones and your children, who you say will be victims, who today have no knowledge of good and evil, they shall go in there; to them I will give it, and they shall possess it" (Deuteronomy 1:39). * David the young hero. "You are not able to ... fight with him; for you are but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth ..." (I Samuel 17:33). * Josiah, the boy King who started a revival. "In the eighth year of his reign, while he was still young, he began to seek the God of his father David ... and he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem of the high places ..." (II Chronicles 34:3). * Jeremiah, the young prophet. "Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth. But the Lord said to me: 'Do not say, I am a youth. For you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak'" (Jeremiah 1:6, 7).   New Testament Revivals   * John the Baptist and his radical message. "Now John was clothed with camel's hair and with a leather belt ... and he ate locusts and wild honey" (Mark 1:6). * The original Jesus Movement. "Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about 30 years of age." The disciples who followed Jesus probably ranged in age from 21 to 35 and many others followed Him including teenagers and children. From these young leaders, the Lord established a Church that "turned the world upside down."   The Great Reformation - 1500s     * John Calvin - He was converted at age 25 and within a year had completed the first draft of a now famous book, Institutes of the Christian Religion - a book called "the single most influential book on theology in Church history."1 * Martin Luther - Himself a young man, Luther was joined by Philipp Melanchthon, a 21 year old scholar, as they lectured to hundreds of University students during the years of the Reformation.   The Great Awakening - 1700s   * George Whitefield - Began to preach at age 21 and was one of the greatest preachers of the 1700s, he and often spoke to crowds in excess of 30,000 people with no amplification. * Johnathan Edwards - A young preacher in Northampton, Massachusetts, Edwards had a great influence on the youth of his day. In 1734, some exciting things began to happen among the young people of New England. "It seemed to be a time of extraordinary dullness in religion;" Winkey Pratney writes inRevival, "licentiousness prevailed among the youth of the town. These church kids ignored their parents ... walked the streets and partied all night ... When two young people died unexpectedly, some of Edward's sermons began to get through ... the young rebels of the town began to turn to Christ, and ... it became the Jesus Movement of its generation."2 * Yale College - In 1796, 26 Yale students founded an organization on campus called the "Moral Society" which discouraged profanity, immorality and drinking. By 1800 nearly one half of the college students were members and this group is credited with laying the foundation for four revivals that occurred later on that campus in the first few decades of the 19th century.   The 1857 Revival   * D.L. Moody - In 1858, Dwight Moody began an outreach to young people in Chicago. He started a Sunday school for youth in a vacant tavern which soon grew into a church filled with young believers. This was the launching pad for one of the great ministries of the 1800s. * C.T. Studd - A convert under Moody's ministry at Cambridge University in England, Studd "was the toast of the nation, captain of their champion cricket team ... top sportsman, and inheritor of a small fortune." He became part of the "Cambridge Seven." This group consisted of Moody's helpers or his converts, who toured universities and challenged students for missions. They were called "holy madmen, launched out to redeem another generation of spiritual warriors."3 * Wales - From a report in 1859, "one of the most striking characteristics of the movement was its effect on young people and even on children. The youth of our congregations are nearly all the subjects of deep religious impressions. Very young people ... children from 10 to 14 years of age, gather together to hold prayer meetings, and pray very fervently. In many places, the young people hold a prayer meeting of their own, and these sometimes proved instrumental in bringing the powerful influences of the revival to that particular locality. The majority of all converts of the revival ... were young people."4 * Student Voulnteer Movement -One of the greatest missionary revivals of this century had its beginning in July, 1886, at the Mt. Hermon Conference of college students. Two hundred and fifty-one students from eighty-nine colleges of the United States and Canada had come together at the invitation of Evangelist D. L. Moody to spend four weeks in Bible study and ended in what became a great missionary movement as university students gave their lives to be foreign missionaries.   The 20th Century Outpouring of the Holy Spirit   * Evan Roberts - A movement known as the Welsh Revival began in 1904 when Evan Roberts, at the age of 26, said to his college principal, "I keep hearing a voice that tells me I must go home to speak to our young people in my home church." So began a sweeping revival in which 100,000 people were converted in five months throughout Wales. "The revival seems to work especially among young people. Its form, which is that of prayer, praise and personal testimony, and its absence of method make it the most methodical expression of the emotions of young hearts aflame with the love of God."5 * Yale - In 1905, nearly one-fourth of the college's students were part of campus prayer meetings and Bible studies. * Student Voulunteer Movement- One of the greatest missionary revivals of this century had its beginning in July, 1886, at the Mt. Hermon Conference of college students. Two hundred and fifty-one students from eighty-nine colleges of the United States and Canada had come together at the invitation of Mr. Moody to spend four weeks in Bible study and ended in what became a great missionary movement as university students gave their lives to be foreign missionaries.   1948 Canadian Revival--Latter Rain Movement   In a Bible College in Northern Canada, an outpouring of the Spirit took place that started a revival around the world. Young people were overwhelmed by the presence of God as spontaneous worship broke out among the students and the power of God was demonstrated. Gifts of the Spirit were restored to the church and renewal of world-wide evangelism. * Billy Graham - One of the greatest worldwide evangelists of all time, Dr. Graham started crusades in Los Angeles, California, in 1949 and was one of the first speakers for a new movement among young people called "Youth For Christ." They "attracted tens of thousands of high schoolers for their 'rallies.' "6   The Jesus Movement and the Charismatic Revival   Out of the "hippy" culture that arose among American youth in 1967, came a second counter-culture called the "Jesus People." Baptized by the hundreds in the Pacific Ocean, they brought a strange and unique youth awakening to the streets of the nation. Many of the young people converted in this move of God are now leaders in today's churches. In 1967, a small group of Catholic college students were baptized in the Holy Spirit at the "Duquesne Weekend," an event regarded as the start of the Catholic Charismatic movement. * 1970s- Many youth-related Christian organizations began in the '60s and '70s, including the Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts, A.C.E. Schools, Teen Challenge, Campus Crusade, Agape Force, Youth With A Mission, Maranatha Campus Ministries, Last Days Ministries and others.   The Future of Christian Revival   There are many young Christian leaders who sense that another awakening among young people may be just around the corner as we step into the last decade of this century. There are encouraging signs of revival and moving of the Spirit. In the nation of China, that is experiencing perhaps the greatest growth in the Christian faith, for example, come these reports: "According to a recent estimate, more than half of China's one billion population are under 20! China is a nation of young people, so it is not surprising that the house churches have a preponderance of people in their 20's and 30's. Some of them are ex-Red Guards."7 Some sources estimate over 72,000 people a day are being converted in Red China! All across the world there are indications of a significant move of the Holy Spirit in our generation. We must believe that the Lord is going to help us influence our generation for the Kingdom of God. We must pray and act to see a revival and an awakening in our time, in our nation. In the United States of America, for example, there are approximately 45 million young people between the ages of 14 and 24. Nearly 20 million are teenagers going through some of the most difficult days of their lives. If we could see a revival among the certain percentage of those who are Christians, they in turn could affect a spiritual awakening among hundreds of thousands of other young people who are not yet converted to Christ. If God moved sovereignly among both believers and unbelievers at the same time, we might witness the greatest youth revival the world has ever known. Our generation may have the greatest opportunity in all of history to experience revival, awakening and the supernatural power of God. Depending on our vision, our ability to conquer our enemies and our desire to achieve our destiny, we could see a dynamic demonstration of the Holy Spirit's power in our generation. Let it be recorded in the history books of Heaven, that the young Christians of this generation responded in radical obedience and dedication to the revelation of the purposes of God for their lifetime. Let us be like David who "served the purpose of God in his generation." Perhaps we will discover that we came to the Kingdom "for such a time as this"!

After mosts shows processed food & snacks are consumed along with alcohol with little thought to our long term health in January 2012, i hit a brick wall. my weight was at it's highest (252lbs / 18stone)… i knew i had to take my head out of the Potato chip bag, put the beer's down & do something ! By accident, i came across Joe Cross's "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" - seeing that documentary switched a light ON that said "Steve get Ya Health together ! ... you're a Dad, you're a husband, you're a Drummer … you need to "Rock the house !" Becoming a father was life-focusing for me & that coupled with a 'potential' midlife/mid-health & mid-career crisis looming it was time to 'dig in' The very next day i purchased a Juicer & a Blender & immediately went on a detox of fruits & vegetable juices/Smoothies…. During this time i came across Paul Risse & his "Cleanse America" mission … i signed up & via one of his recipes heard about the Rockin' Wellness shake… i was intrigued. As it wasn't available in the UK, i was lucky enough that a friend visiting the US brought me some home to try …. Firstly, i couldn't believe how good it tasted Secondly how it made me feel … my energy went thru the roof & i felt both focussed & a clear mind. During tours/shows i've been drinking a Rockin' Wellness shake 1 hour before going on stage every night… as i hit the stage i now have sharper focus, extra stamina for the show + an overall clarity of mind on 'the job ahead'. Being a Drummer you are the "Boof Baff" & foundation that the band plays to … so feeling this extra-energy & stamina is amazing. I've also found it's great after a show… Rockin Wellness takes care stopping those cravings that may creep in as important to me as Kick, Snare & Drum Sticks … a bag of Rockin Wellness shake now travels with me as part of my touring equipment As a result of a taking Rockin' Wellness as part of a Healthier diet, today my weight is 196 lbs / 14 stone & in the wise words on Mr James Brown "I Feel Good" !"

roys historic Walton plantation Site figured in quarry battle Posted: Wednesday, March 27, 2002 By Wayne Ford Oconee Editor GOOD HOPE -- The most visible symbol for a group of citizens fighting to keep a rock quarry out of eastern Walton County went up in flames Monday night in what authorities described Tuesday as a ''suspicious fire.'' Back | Next The historic Casulon Plantation, site of numerous festivals, Civil War re-enactments, and sightseeing tours during recent years, was destroyed by a fire that was streaking 100 feet in the air by the time firefighters arrived. ''We're looking at this as a very suspicious fire,'' Walton County Sheriff Al Yarbrough said. However, if it was purposely set, he said authorities haven't determined a motive or suspects. Yarbrough said the fire apparently started around the back door. Deputy State Fire Marshal Troy Reynolds visited the scene Tuesday, but he said it was too early to say how the fire started. The fire was reported at 10:04 p.m. and it was midnight before the inferno was under control. At least 25 firefighters from Walton, Oconee and Morgan counties converged on the scene with about 18 vehicles, including 10 water tankers. The closest place to secure additional water was four miles away in Good Hope. The two-story antebellum house was located off Georgia Highway 186, along unpaved Jones Woods Road. The secluded dwelling was landscaped with century-old cedars along with magnolias, oaks and an English boxwood garden. It was once the centerpiece of a 10,000-acre, 19th-century cotton plantation. A slave cabin and other structures still exist, although a smokehouse and cellar for keeping vegetables at the rear of the house were destroyed in the fire. Firefighters survey the damage inside the plantation. The plantation house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Cameron Swartz/Staff No one was in Casulon Plantation at the time, but a caretaker did live in a house about 200 yards away on the grounds. ''It was very intense,'' said Felicia Kautz, a High Shoals resident who witnessed the fire. ''Glass was breaking and fire departments were all over the place. It was like something out of 'Gone With the Wind.' '' ''Heart pine is nothing but turpentine and the whole construction was heart pine,'' said Walton County Fire Battalion Chief Mike Moore. While pieces of the home like mantels are salvageable, the structure itself cannot be saved, he said. The house, on the National Register of Historic Places, is owned by Wil Sommer and Janice Burrell, a divorced couple, who were still in the process of settling the Casulon estate. Sommer was out of state at the time of the fire, authorities at the scene said. Burrell was also out of state, but was en route to Athens on Tuesday. Neither was available for comment. The house and 15.5 acres of land was for sale at $1.85 million, according to the World Wide Web site for a firm called Trade Away. The house has for years been at the forefront of a effort to stop Hanson Aggregates from mining a rock quarry on land adjacent to the historic plantation built in 1824. It was once the home of Gov. James Boynton, who married at the house in 1883. The destruction of the house is a loss historically, but people involved in the battle against Hanson concede it is a strike against quarry opponents, too. Most have predicted the quarry issue will be settled in the courts. ''I really fear that it will now tip in their direction,'' said Bonnie Stanford, an active member of the anti-quarry group. The proximity of the proposed quarry to the house was considered a detriment to the structure. People also recognized Janice Burrell as a key figure in the battle. ''That lady really worked on it,'' said Don Thomas, who drove by the residence Tuesday morning to see the damage. ''It's going to be hard to try and stop it now. It was the only thing holding it back.'' ''I think it's going to be a setback,'' said Kautz, who has worked as a tour guide at Casulon and is opposed to the quarry. ''I feel very sad for Janice and Wil, but it won't stop our resolve.'' ''We'll still be impacted at High Shoals a couple of miles down the road with the noise, trucks and the silica dust,'' said her husband, Jim Kautz. ''There are so many reasons to continue the fight.'' Nigel Wells, environmental director for Hanson's corporate office in Atlanta, said Tuesday afternoon he was ''shocked'' to learn about the fire. ''It's not a scenario that we even thought about. You've caught me completely off guard,'' Wells said. ''That plantation house has been there for years and years and years, and we always presumed it would be there.'' Hanson's request for a surface mining permit from the state Environmental Protection Division office in Athens is being evaluated based on the house being there, Wells said. ''The last time I spoke to them, and it was last week, they told me they were nearing the end of the evaluation,'' he said, adding he didn't know if the loss of the house would affect the evaluation. Harley Davis, who lives about a mile away, said he saw the fire from his home. ''The sky looked red and I knew something was on fire, but you know I never thought of it being Casulon. I thought the woods were on fire,'' Davis said. He had only recently become interested in the dispute with Hanson. ''I hadn't been all that against it until I found out what they were going to do with the water,'' he said. Hanson has said it plans to discharge up to 1.1 million gallons of water a day into nearby Jacks Creek and wants to withdraw about 300,000 gallons a day from the same creek. Another historic home about a mile away burned in December 2000. Mary Ellen Singleton, who dropped by Casulon on Tuesday, said her two-story, six columned home burned while she was away in Florida. Singleton said she believes the fire was an accident and that she is not sure what caused it, although there was an electrical storm that week. Fire gutted Casulon Plantation in Walton County late Monday night. The plantation house was at one time the residence of former Georgia Gov. James Boynton. Authorities are continuing an investigation into the blaze. Cameron Swartz/Staff Published in the Athens Banner-Herald on Wednesday, March 27, 2002.

Wayne Miles " A Squirrel's Tale " PART XVII ( The reunion ) August 31, 2009 at 11:50pm The mole and his guests entered the Sitting room, where Anna was waiting. The Sitting room was quite large and was furnished with a U shaped sectional sofa that sort of wr Read more ...
aped around the large stone fireplaces equally massive hearth. This over sized sofa could seat at least a dozen people and possibly more. " You needed me , Mr. Mole?" asked Ann. " yes, dear, could you see to it that our new guests know that we are awaiting for them down here." requested the mole. " Of course, sir ." said the young gopher. " When you have done that, I would like a private word with you." finished the mole. " Yes, sir." said the gopher with a somewhat puzzed look on her face. Mr. Squirrel had seen this room briefly when Lenny had given him the cheap tour, when he arrived but hadn't noticed the awards hanging on the walls, all of the walls. He had never seen so many awards, citations, ribbons and honorary degree's in one place in his life. He was just starting to realize that he really didn't know the mole at all. Who was this little creature that he had depended on for so long. Certainly not the mole that he had known in college. The poor little mole that wasn't quite as good as the rest of his friends were. No, this was a very different mole. This was Mr. Simon Abner Mole of Cypress Hall, a mole with powerful friends and the respect of all kinds of people. The most surprising thing was that although he tried to keep up with the news and high society, he had never read or heard one word about Simon Mole on the TV or in the Press. How could anyone be awarded so many honors and keep it quiet from the outside world. This was someone to be reckoned with, someone to be feared. Simon Mole was going to be a very worthy opponent, if in fact that what this game was about. " Where did you send Anna, Simon ?" asked the Judge. " She will be back soon old friend." "She is getting our new guests." answered the mole. " Mr. Mole, where are all of the other servants, surely Robert and Anna can't take care of this place by themselves ?" asked the frog. " Oh, They are about somewhere or other." sighed the little mole. " There are several more employee's around here somewhere." he continued. "Let's see, there is the cook, the upstairs maids, the downstairs maids, the housekeeper, the grounds keeper and his helper and of course my driver Earl." added the mole counting them off on his fingers as he spoke. " Ann, would know where they are, she is the estate manager after all." he said a little exasperated. " I just write the checks, she is really the boss around here." said the mole with a little laugh. " It's just odd that I haven't seen anyone other than Robert and Ann." continued the frog. Now Mr. Mole laughed out loud. " Servant's are like children, they should be rarely seen and never heard." he chuckled. " Maybe they are all related to Robert and move about us like ghosts." chimed in the Chief. " Perhaps, Mr. Mole only hires Ninja's at Cypress Hall." said the otter getting in on the fun. That may be truer than you idiot's think. Thought the squirrel. I can't believe that I have gotten myself trapped in this gilded cage with these fools. he thought. These people don't know who they are dealing with Mr. Simon Mole is playing a game with all of them. " Mr. Mole, Your guests are on their way down." said Anna. Who had appeared in the room without anyone noticing her entering through the door. " Why, thank you Anna." said the mole. " May I have a word with you about lunch, before they get here ?" said the mole with a covert wink. Mr. Mole and Anna went into the hall and closed the door behind them. " Anna, depending on what Lenny and Morris report from their trip." " I may need you to go to Pondville for a day or two, that is if you don't mind." said the mole. " I wont lie to you , it could be dangerous." he continued solemnly . " Lenny and Earl will be there to, for security purposes and I am sure that they are more than capable of protecting you." he added. " Of course I will go, if you need me to, sir." she answered, without hesitation. " My father and I would do anything for you, Mr. Mole, you know that." she added. " You and your father, owe me nothing." said the mole. " You are my family and family takes care of family." said the mole tenderly. " Everything that I have ever done for you has been repaid a thousand times over." added the mole. " We feel the same way about you,sir." she said as she hugged the little mole. They both looked toward the grand staircase as they heard foot steps coming down the stairs. " So good to see you again, glad that you could make it." said the mole smiling broadly. " Thank you, Mr.Mole. I never thought that I would be invited to Cypress Hall." said the Cat. " Good to see you again Simon, it's been a long time " said the very portly Beaver. " Anna, let me introduce you to Dean Wallace Beaver and Winston Cat." said the mole. " Gentilemen, this is Ann Gopher, Cypress Hall's manager and a very close friend." continued the mole. " It's a pleasure, Dean Beaver and Mr. Cat." said the gopher as she held out her hand to them both. " The pleasure is all mine ." said the beaver. " Glad to meetcha." said the cat. " Well, if you gentilemem are ready lets go and meet my other guests." said the mole. The mole turned the handles on the double doors and slowly began to push them open. A very odd smile began to form on his little face and his small half blind eye's opened wide, no doubt to see the reaction to his new guests. And a reaction he would get almost immediatly.

bling 64 IEDs and destroying 1,548 pieces of ordnance during his second tour. Then, on September 19, he got blown up. He had arrived at a chaotic scene after a bomb had killed four US Marines. He chose not to wear the bulky bomb protection suit. 'You can't react to any sniper fire and you get tunnel-vision,' he explains. So, protected by just a helmet and standard-issue flak jacket, he began what bomb disposal officers term 'the longest walk', stepping gingerly into a 5 foot deep and 8 foot wide crater. The earth shifted slightly and he saw a Senao base station with a wire leading from it. He cut the wire and used his 7 inch knife to probe the ground. 'I found a piece of red detonating cord between my legs,' he says. 'That's when I knew I was screwed.' Realizing he had been sucked into a trap, Sgt Burghardt, 35, yelled at everyone to stay back. At that moment, an insurgent, probably watching through binoculars, pressed a button on his mobile phone to detonate the secondary device below the sergeant's feet 'A chill went up the back of my neck and then the bomb exploded,' he recalls. 'As I was in the air I remember thinking, 'I don't believe they got me..' I was just ticked off they were able to do it. Then I was lying on the road, not able to feel anything from the waist down.' His fellow Marines cut off his trousers to see how badly he was hurt. None could believe his legs were still there 'My dad's a Vietnam vet who's paralyzed from the waist down,' says Sgt Burghardt. 'I was lying there thinking I didn't want to be in a wheelchair next to my dad and for him to see me like that. They started to cut away my pants and I felt a real sharp pain and blood trickling down. Then I wiggled my toes and I thought, 'Good, I'm in business.' As a stretcher was brought over, adrenaline and anger kicked in. 'I decided to walk to the helicopter. I wasn't going to let my team-mates see me being carried away on a stretcher.' He stood and gave the insurgents who had blown him up a one-fingered salute. ‘I flipped them one’. It was like, 'OK, I lost that round but I'll be back next week.' Copies of a photograph depicting his defiance, taken by Jeff Bundy for the Omaha World-Herald, adorn the walls of homes across America and that of Col John Gronski, the brigade commander in Ramadi, who has hailed the image as an exemplar of the warrior spirit. Sgt Burghardt's injuries - burns and wounds to his legs and buttocks - kept him off duty for nearly a month and could have earned him a ticket home. But, like his father - who was awarded a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts for being wounded in action in Vietnam - he stayed in Ramadi to engage in the battle against insurgents who are forever coming up with more ingenious ways of killing Americans.

Chapter 11 A Whole New World
A splash of hope swished against his face, wetting his cheek. Cold liquid ran down, making a streak. Trying to hold on he was slipping, it was rather difficult to stand firm on a whale. Yet, Rose was an expert, she had no troubles at all. Excitement Read more ...
was expressed all over her, she radiated a passion for adventure. Wanting to explore the unknown, not allowing anything to stop her! He was soaking up every moment, absorbing her essence. They glided across the waters together, it was almost as if they were flying! Not to far from the truth! Winslow could not help himself but wonder, how was this even possible? How could one stand on the back of a whale and travel throughout the ocean, and at great speeds he noted! They were traveling faster than any ship ever made! At this rate, they could travel many leagues ahead. The  ships could not follow at this speed, they would be surely stranded in the ocean, not even a raft was in their possession. Now being in a dangerous position. What were they to do now? “I don't mean to spoil this fun, but Rose we're going to die out here!” Wondering what had inspired him to come out here in the first place. “Calm down Winslow, we're not too far.” Trying to settle his nerves. “Ohhh.... wait, what do you mean not too far?” “Far from what?!” Figuring out what she was up to. “You'll see.” “Spirit knows where to go.” “Spirit?” “Who's Spirit,” he asked. “The one your standing on.” Winslow lifted his foot. “You mean....” “Yes, the one giving us a lift,” cutting him off.  “How can a mere whale know where to go?” Pondering her logic. “You'd be surprise, Spirit knows these waters better than anyone!” “You know for some strange reason he's quite fond of you.” “And as if he knows you.” Winslow jerked, stunned.  A whale knowing him? Well, come to think of it there was a whale who saved him and his crew's very lives. Nah, it couldn't be. There is no way that this could be the same sea creature. Just then, the whale jerked lifted it's head and made a funny noise. Then shot out a gigantic spring of water out of it's hole. Water splashed over him and Rose. He tried shielding himself from the spray, it was no use. The whale then tipped slighting showing it's side. On it lied a scar, it was exactly the same as the whale whom had fought the squid. Winslow couldn't believe it! It was the same whale! A very strange coincidence indeed! “That scar!” “It can't be?!” Rose looked at him, smirking. “I take it you do know him then?” Pestering the Prince. “Oddly, sort of?” “A whale with that same scar saved me and my crew life.” “If it hadn't been for the whale's bravery we all would have been killed by that gigantic squid!” “I owe that whale my life!” Winslow stated humbly. Rose giggled. What in the world was he talking about, a giant squid? He was quite strange, that prince. “What squid?” She asked. “It's a long story.” “I was on my way to Castillia when a colossal storm came out of nowhere accompanied by a monstrous squid.” “Somehow we got off track and ended up in the triangle waters.” “That's a long ways to get lost, far from Castillia, don't you think?” Doubting such a tale. “Yes, indeed so.” “Not exactly sure how it happened?” “Nonetheless, that whale was the bravest warrior I've ever seen.” “Diving to unheard of depths!” “I only wonder what or whom inflicted that most dreadful scar.” Rose gave a saddened face. “Poachers.” He glanced closer at the scar as best he could. “Poachers?” “How do you know this?” “I've known Spirit for a very long time.” “Actually since he was a little one.” “Me and Spirit have gone through a lot together.” “He's been one of the few best friends I've ever had.” “Loyal to the T.” She patted Spirit on the side, giving a gentle nudge. “Best friend huh?” “Don't get out much, having to befriend sea creatures are we?” Teasing her. “Ha ha, very funny.” “I just find their company more suitable, that's all!” She jested back. “I found Spirit when he was a wee little bull.” “Poachers had stabbed him with harpoons.” “I was pretty young myself then.” “Back before I was the Captain that I am today.” “You mean you weren't always a Captain then?” “Always thought you to be the Captain, even giving orders in the womb!” “Would of fooled me!” Having fun with her. “Ha, as strange as it may sound, yes!” “It happened before I was even made a second Captain actually.” “Me and the crew were sailing across the coast when I saw them hunting this infant whale.” “A most beautiful white ________ whale.” “A very rare sight indeed.” “Most of it's kind have been hunted to the point of extinction.” “That's probably why the poachers were so intent on hunting it.” “I couldn't bear the sight, they were killing him!” “I could hears his screams, crying out in agony!” “The sound tore at my soul!” “What did you do?” He asked. “The right thing!” “I loaded the cannons and blew the damn poachers to hell!” “Did those pansies ever run, never saw scoundrels move so fast before!” “Once they were gone, we anchored settling on the beach.” “The whale laid there against the sand, blood flowed everywhere staining the bed floor.” “I thought for sure the whale was a goner, who could of survived such a injury.” “But sure enough, as I came close I could see the whale still had plenty of life left in him.” “I have been never so happy to have been wrong.” “So I took extra sails that we had in storage wrapping the wounds and bandaged the whale up, watching over him, making sure he was going to make it alright.” “Believe me it wasn't easy, I was just lucky that at least he was old enough not needing to feed off it's mother anymore.” “I gave him the name Spirit, because he was the strongest being I'd ever seen.” “He possessed the strongest will of any soul.” “Allowing nothing to stop him.” “I nursed him back to health.” “Spending countless hours with Spirit.” This intrigued him, Winslow wondered why she would do such a thing. Why did she care about this whale so much. “What's it to you, why would you care about some whale.” Seeking her inner ways. “I don't know why exactly.” “Perhaps it's due to the fact it needed my help.” “He was broken, hurt, abused, and most of all, alone.” “The poachers had killed his whole family, his whole pack.” “He was left in this world all alone.” “I couldn't just walk away and leave him like that.” “Something inside just told me, a inner voice I guess, urged me to take him in.” “I suppose Spirit reminds me a lot of myself.” “Being one rebellious whale!” “I found that the more I cared and took care of Spirit the bigger he got!” “Now being the biggest whale ever seen, that's for sure!” “Yep, me and the big guy have gone through many adventures together.” “Through the roughest, toughest, and best of times!” “I don't know what I've would of done without him, no doubt there!” She continued to massage his side, giving him her love. Winslow grinned seeing her soft side, this truly touched him, seeing her care for the mammal. Reflecting on the symbolism of roses. She reminded him so much of one. Altho, to most roses, had penetrating thorns. Was she one them? The whale shot out another huge spray, drenching them. Winslow again threw up his arms trying to block the water, but it was of no use. The mammal plunged forward this time at double speed. He almost fell backwards, Rose held on to him almost falling her self. They both laughed, it was some ride indeed! She then put her hands in the water and felt the waves as they glided across. Some fish even managed to run into her path, luckily no jelly fish tho! Dolphins aptly passed by, showing off, making sure their presence was known. To numerous to count. Joining their bigger cousin, the whale. Splashing water into both their faces, playing around with both Rose and him, making teasing gestures. Rose splashed water back at the dolphins, whom were very much amused by it. The whale continued on passing all kinds of sights. Never had he ever imagined anything like this! A local fisherman lied ahead, he was busy, off attending to his net. Just then they all whirled by. The fisherman casually glanced over, thinking nothing of it, assuming it to be any other ship at sea. That was until, he saw it to be a gigantic whale, the biggest one he'd ever seen. A white presence that  consumed the sea. Rose seized the moment and started waving at him, giving her most precious smile. The fisherman stared out wide eye in complete awe, never seeing such a sight in his entire life! Two people riding on the back of a whale! What in the world! This had to be some kind of dream or trick?! As he stared out to them his fishing line got caught on his leg tripping him into the ocean. His whole boat almost tipped over. The man screamed out loud, throwing curses into the wind. None to happy to have fallen in! Rose and Winslow couldn't help themselves but laugh out loud at the man, watching him gradually and ungracefully get back into the boat completely soaking wet. Oh, how it had been so long since he had felt this way! Come to think of it.... the only person who had ever made him felt in this manner was, Esmeralda. The fun times they shared together, kept his heart young and alive! And at this moment he felt like he could take on the world! “Wait, it gets better!” She then put her hands on his face and covered his vision. Out of nowhere, a beautiful rainbow appeared in the sky! In fact two, intertwining with each other, forming a perfect unity. She released, allowing him to see this breathtaking view! It was like a vision out of a story book! The whale had taken them to nearby cliffs hugging a coastline. Misty clouds hung beneath the rainbows. Winslow was bemused! This was the most unbelievable gorgeous sight he had ever seen! The whale suddenly raced even faster, tripling it's speeds! Huge rocks were up ahead blocking their path. The only way past them was to find some way over.  There wasn't enough time to dodge it, they were going to crash! He closed his eyes, embracing himself for the worst! “Don't you dare close your eyes,” she grabbed his hands, preventing him from covering his sight. “There's a whole lot more to see!” Then, with greatest of ease Spirit plunged upwards right over the rocks! They were literally flying in the air, even if it was just for a few moments. But they were soaring, flaring, free styling through an endless sky! Winslow was desperately trying to hold on for dear life! He had no desire to fall directly onto the deadly rocks! Valuing his life very much so! Landing right over the rocks, smoothly hitting the waters. Spirit had triumphantly cleared, and with perfect precision! They barely even felt the landing. Winslow caught his breath for a minute, he literally thought they were goners! Rose on the other hand was laughing, she found the whole event very amusing. Throwing her fist into the air in excitement. Making victory noises. Boy, did that girl have a thirst for adventure! This made him chuckle, he had to admit. The ride was pretty awesome, invigorating! He might have gone for another, but looking back at the rocks quickly brought him back to reality! Now sitting down, he stood up amazed at his surroundings. The whale had indeed taken them into a new world. The new environment was unforgettable! A lagoon, covered in by rock walls, encompassing them in. It's entire middle was a pond like lake, going deep below. The only way out was to go back over the rocks. Lying ahead of them lied a huge beauteous waterfall. With crystal clear water, falling endlessly into the lagoon. It was truly the most wondrous vision he had ever seen! “I can show you a new world.” Rose replied as Spirit proceeded further into the waterfall. “I can open your eyes, showing you a truth that has been hidden for so long.” “I'll take you throughout wonders, truth by truth, cause by cause, to new prospects.” “Exploring new horizons, pursuing new possibilities.” “But you have to promise me one thing, before I take you there....” Winslow made a shocked face, wondering what she was talking about. “What is that?” Asking curiously. “You must unfastened your heart and keep an open minded perspective.” “What I am about to show you, you can not speak a word of it to anyone!” “Do you hear me!?” “If word of this were to get out, it would cost the lives of those whom need protection.” He was confused, who was she talking about. Was she in some kind of trouble? “Who needs protection?” “Come, and I'll show them to you.” This truly stunned him, who was them?! It was no use Rose wouldn’t give anymore details. Spirit then moved along going through the waterfall despite Winslow's suspicions. Of course both got drenched, but it didn't matter for what she had to show soon made him forget! Once inside, it was obvious that they had entered into a fordable cave. Lying secretly behind the waterfall. Clever, no one would of ever known that a cave was hidden behind the waterfall. Yet what sneaky thing was Rose up to? Winslow waited patiently and watched. Spirit went further down the cave gracefully gliding across the shallow waters, they were floating on mere ponds. The cave was both beautiful and mysterious. Beams of light, rays leaked out of small holes that eventually reached the outside world. Other than that, the scene was pretty dark. Continuing on, Winslow examined each and every detail. The scenery was unforgettable! Up ahead, he saw something very strange. He squinted his eyes trying to get a clearer view. It couldn't be! No.... no way! Across the distance, a small but distinct village like city spread everywhere. It was truly astonishing! A bizarre fantastic sight! How could a city be coexisting inside a cave! Completely hidden from the public's knowledge! He just wondered who dwelled in this mystical place? Should he be worried?! As they came close he could see clearer. Upon nearby cliffs a man made port was created on top of it. The port lead to never ending trails that went out beyond.  A little further up the port, homes were built everywhere, and they were magnificent! Completely detailed in splendor! Their ride came to a halt, they had arrived at the port. Spirit remained still. Rose took the first step she reached her hand out indicating to Winslow to follow behind. Coming up from behind her, he jumped up unto the port, looking over the long shallow river that kept on going. The river was so motionless making it a considerable pond. Rose proceeding up the man made paths. He stared down memorized, this was a amazing city. Even the roads they were both treading upon were paved with cobble stones.  Expensive material, may he add, only the finest. “Rose....” “Where are we?!” Smirking, was placid. She was enjoying playing with his emotions, arousing his curiosity. “We're here, home sweet home,” she just simply implied. “Come, it is time you met with the locals.” Leading the way. “Locals?” Did he really want to? Was this some kind of trick? Oh, how did he ever manage to get himself into these kind of things! He followed. Walking onto the road, he could feel each smooth pebble upon his boots. Closely observing his surroundings, he studied all the homes they passed. Numerous shared a very strange distinct feature. Many he could tell were made from oddly, ships! Crafted with mastery skill, all the pieces put together in a elegant style. Resulting in ship like homes. Each house was planted into the walls of the cliffs. Skillfully crafted into the rocks, and stones. He was in awe, how was this possible? It was like a ship town! Even other buildings and architectures were built with very similar material. As they walked further down the path more homes were built on the ground near the ones in the cliff sides. “Rose, seriously!” “Are you going to tell me where we are, and whom are these locals you so speak of!” “We are in the Azō?ŗ?es Isles, inside it's caves.” “Welcome to Miravet Town.” “The crew and I built this town from scratch.” “It wasn't easy I tell you.” “Took a great deal of material.” “From all the scraps I could get, I had to rely on my given resources.” “The majority of the material is from noble ships, a lot of the homes are made from captain's cabins, they make very fine residences indeed.” “Other material is from countless noble and royal spoils.” “Was inexplicably difficult to get our hands on what was necessary to build this town you see now.” Winslow was both confused, and dismayed. Why would she need to rob so many people to make a town? Why do such a thing?! “Rose, why did you do this?!” “This is wrong, you can't steal to make a city!” “What are you doing?!” “Wrong huh!” “The people I robbed were from far innocent!” “I took what was needed in order to protect those who are innocent!” “Perhaps, if you meet them, you'll quickly change your mind!” “MEET WHO!” Winslow couldn’t take it anymore! “Come.... here they are now!” Rose took Winslow to one of the homes. She knocked gently, a very unique distinct kind, in some melody he didn't know. Flabbergasted, a small child peeked through the window. Apparently the child was excited when seeing Rose. The child then took off and notified others that Rose was at the door step. Just then, the door abruptly flew opened. Many children of all kind of ages flooded out all rejoicing at the sight of Rose. The excitement filled the air, along with much noise. They were asking her endless questions, many about her journeys she had encountered. She soaked up every bit of it, enticing all the little one's imaginations! Even stretching truths if she had too, telling all kinds of tall tales. None of them cared, it was their fantasy they enjoyed. Wanting to escape realty. Rose then, took her flute and played a tune on it. “The coast is clear, you can all come out now!” Yelling out to all. Almost as quickly as she announced a flood of children came out of their homes and rushed to her. The city was infested with them, their voices were echoing off all the walls of the cave. Many adults ran out as well, and some that appeared to be workers joined also. Everyone was celebrating that Rose had come. “Today is a joyous occasion, everyone!” “We have amongst us, a most noble prince.” “The prince of Aragon, Prince Winslow!” Many gasped and started whispering in excitement! They never met a prince before! “Come, let us all have a grand feast, especially in the honor of this fine gentleman!” A roar of cheering echoed. No one disagreed. All then ran about setting and preparing for such a occasion! She motioned for him to join, he stared out in wonder. Many children flew to Winslow, tugging on his clothing, asking him countless questions. He tried answering some of them, but there were to many. They were so sweet, wonderful delights. Starving for attention, well he didn't mind. If attention is what they wanted he would give it to them. He joined everyone in the celebration, not sure what they were celebrating, but he was always in for a party! As Rose and Winslow walked down the path with the children, she began introducing him to some of them. But there was so many, he couldn’t keep track of their names. He did remember a few tho. Up further, Rose spotted Luke and Ronald, they were fixing and maintencing all kinds of buildings. They were particularly working on one building, it appeared to be located centerfold in the town. “What'd do you think you'd be doing you numpty plonty!” Luke yelled at Ronald. “I'd be fixing, what'd it look like I'd be doing you nitwit!” Ronald yelled back. They were arguing on the roof top, yelling profusely. Rose was becoming annoyed, she walked over trying to settle things down. “Honestly Luke and Ronald!” “Can you two not agree on anything!” The two were startled, they quickly stood and saluted her. “Capitana!” Both spurted out at the same time. They had both been working on fixing the roof. Shaking her head at them, then starting introducing. “I want you to meet my third captains, Luke and Ronald.” “Luke, Ronald, this is the Prince of Aragon, Winslow.” The two then waved down at him, thrilled to be in the presence of a prince. He waved back wondering what they were doing. “This here would be the Capital, where the governor dwells.” “Those two are fixing it up.” “They are the genesis who practically built this whole town, they were in charge of the entire construction of this town.” “Without them, it would of never been possible!” Winslow looked up at them confused. “Um, Rose how can you have two third captains?” “Doesn't one have to third and the other forth?” Curious. She then gently nudged him in the arm making a shooshing noise. “Don't say that out loud, they don't know that!” “Those two argue about everything!” “I had to make them both equal captains, if I made one different than the other I would never hear the end to it!” “So to split it equal I just left it to third.” Whispering quietly to him. He just laughed. “Hay, I'd say I would make great third, while Ronald be forth!” Luke commented, feeling very important. “You, don't be stupid!” “You couldn't even make forth!” “It'd be me who should make third!” Ronald, feeling even more important. “Who you calling forth!” Luke again. “I'd called you fifth, get your ears checked!” Ronald back. Both picked up their tools and started fencing with them. “See, what I'd tell you!” Rose shook her head. “Alright!” “That's enough out of you two, get that roof fixed, or I'll go up there myself and fix both you!” Each captain started muttering under their breaths and proceeding back to work, still quietly arguing at each other. “Those two, honestly.” “It amazes me how they manage to get anything done!” Winslow just started chuckling. Continuing to walk down the path, Winslow began to observe his surroundings once more. It was truly awe-inspiring! It was an entire city built, for children! Altho, he couldn't help but wonder why? Who were these children, and where were their parents? Did they not have families?                                         ------------------------------------------------------------------------ “Rose,” Winslow began to question her motives. “Who are these children, where do they come from?” “And what are they doing here, do they not have any families?” Rose just proceeded to walk, trying to find the words to explain. She was having a very hard time. How could she possibly vindicate? “I could tell you, but what good would that do?” “Instead I will show you.” This perplexed him. “Show?” “What's with all the secrecy.” “Rose why don't you just tell me what's going on?” They kept on walking. Several people ran up to her eager to obtain orders from her. She reported to them that preparations were needed, a means of traveling around the town was required. Instructing for them to prepare their transportation, saluted and promptly set out to ready their ride. Rose on the other hand continued to walk about with Winslow. “What you see, is a rebellious resistance.” “Everything is very vital, sensitive crusades.” “These children are our entire mission.” “Their lives depend on us.” “If we fail, so do they!” This was all confusing him, entirely. “What mission!?” “We are all fighting the empire, together.” “A united force.” “I suppose it's time you found out the truth.” “Truth, what truth?” “Zancadia, has built it's entire empire on tyranny.” “Stealing children all around the world.” “Then are raised in this direful despotism.” “None can escape, they are to submit to imperial forces.” “Any rebellious children are swiftly punished, even sometimes to death!” “The reason for all our secrecy, any entity caught rebelling against the emperor's system, especially trying to free these children shall be hunted down!” “Persecuted, executed!”  “We are reformist forces trying to stop this evil corruption, the emperor has set bounties for our arrests.” “Winslow, I know this is a lot to take in, but you must keep this vital secret.” “These children you see here, were rescued from Zancadia.” “If the empire found out where they are, we will all be killed!” “Other nations are thrilled with Zancadia's new power, joining the empire as well.” “They are assisting the emperor.” “That's why the children had to stay hidden in these caves, a place no one could find them!” “Whoever comes here, has to take an oath, not to leave and not to tell anybody else about this town!” Fixed upon Rose's dire expressions, wondered how she could of manage such a brigade. “Rose, have you even considered the well-being of these children?” “I mean, who is taking care of them?” “How are they eating, their clothing... hell, even their education?” “Have you not taken any of this into consideration?!” Her expression quickly altered into anger. “Of course I have!” “What do you think I've been doing this whole time!” “Having a tea party!” “That is why I have brought you here!” “To show you this town, and how it operates!”  Her short fuse was running out! “There are many workers who volunteer their services here.” “The majority of them too are victims of the imperial kidnappings.” “Countless that you see were rescued from Zancadia and are hiding here.” “Numerous parents are also here assisting in this crisis, looking for their kidnapped children.” “They and numberless volunteers are taking care of the children, acting as their guardians.” “Since I'll be showing you around it is necessary that we take adequate transportation.” “Our town is very vast, and will take some time to travel throughout it, traveling on foot will prove to be way too tiresome.” Making her way, came across a long line of camels, it seemed this was the transportation she spoke of. “Your kidding me right?!” He stared out at the camels just grazing, lazing the day away. “Nope, this is it!” Winslow was in shock, what where camels doing in a cave?! Rose went over to two already saddled ones, illustrious seats in the configuration of a rose were strapped upon their backs. These rose seats were both expensive and unique, perfectly customized to her tastes and practicality. Winslow had never even seen a camel in real life, only read about them in books. How was he to ride one of these things, he never rid a camel before! Try as he might couldn't get on, the mammal moved slightly attempting to eat a weed from the ground, Winslow fell with a plop right on his rear. Rose gagged in amusement, she was having much fun with the prince. She deliberately chose this kind of transportation, getting him back for his nescient remarks! He rubbed his behind and tried again, but to his dismay was futile ending up on the ground again. Stepping over to the prince helped him get on. He was abashed at having to need a smallish women help him into the seat. Feeling awkward and out of place, he felt like a fish out of water! “Now that you've taken forever just to get strapped in, can we get on with the tour already?!” Having fun pestering him. He grumbled at her, annoyed at the unnecessary difficulty. “Yes, because it's everyday I happen to ride a camel!” Yelling out to her sarcastically. “How in the world did you even manage to get camels into this cave anyhow?!” “It was no simple task, took a lot of effort.” “You will find that there are many animals in this town, imported from all over the world.” “How are they living?” He questioned. “We have all made the precise arrangements for all the animals' necessities.” “If you follow behind I'll show you around, you can then see how we raise and keep our animals, or as I would rather say friends.” “Here we treat our livestock as pettish friends, not slaves who are abused and neglected.” “That is why our products are the best in the world!” “Come, I will show it to you now!” Then she began directing him around the town, showing him certain attractions. Riding away on the camels went far off, finally making their way to several developments. They had passed the town some miles. “This here is where our operations of food is.” “Volunteers and workers here are in charge of processing our food supply, whether it comes to growing it, making it, and then of course cooking it.” “If you look off into the distance you will see our various farms, we take pride in our crops producing the finest!” Out in the distance farms lied ahead, through the cave ceiling was an opening, massive sunlight beamed down, feeding the crops and vegetation. “On the other side of them you'll see our dairy farms.” “They supply our dairy products for the entire town.” “We use a special technique of using music to stimulate the animals into producing more.” “They all just love music!” “Works great for our other pastures as well.” Numerous dairy farms and pastures neighbored likewise. Leading then away from the farms and pastures traveled further to more sights. In the facade, vast boards fences stood up for miles on end, he wondered what that was about? What was inside those fences? “What's behind those fences?” He wondered. “That's where we keep our animals.” “We built specialized environments for each species, that way they can stay in their natural habitats.” “It's important that our animals feel at home, that way they stay healthy and well.” “I don't know what we would do without them, they have helped us through so much.” “They practically built this whole place, being the main support and strength.” “In our appreciation of their hard efforts we give our best to them, spoiling them with luxuries they would never receive from other lands.” “After all, is it not our duty as humans to tend to the garden and make sure all is being taken care of?” “Then why should we not tend to the animals and make sure their fed and nourished?” “I for one can not stand the fact that animals have to kill each other just to eat.” “Why should they have to go on a survival to death situation, when we can just tend to them and assist.” Winslow made a puzzled face. “Tend to the animals?” “Aren't they to be in the wild, living on their own means?” “Wild!” “Bah!” “Animals are not meant to be wild, they are naturally meant to live in peace.” “Humans just use the excuse of wild, just not to have to take responsibility for tending to their needs and necessities.” “Animals depend on us and always will, that's how God created our universe!” “If we all did our part, and looked after nature there would be a lot more peace and less fighting!” “Similarly, our problems we face would lessen, when we take care of nature, nature in the long run will take care of us providing it's wondrous spoils as a exalted gift!” He pondered her words for a moment. No one had ever made such suggestion before, tend to the wild animals. Would it actually work? If humans fed the animals would they actually stop bickering and fighting and live about in peace? Chuckling at the thought wondered if the same thing would work for humans likewise. If all humans had enough food and water would it end their futile wars? Traveling forth on the camels, went much farther out, he could hardly see the town from there. Rocking back and forth made it highly uncomfortable, he did not appreciate this kind of transportation! Stopping in front of what seemed like huge building structures, came across never ending mining shafts. Men were fast at work, standing on all kinds of ladders and built stairs, levels that went on forever. Winslow was amazed at such construction, he could see that a lot of hard work and effort went into play. Altho, he knew how dangerous mining was, he wondered if all this construction would cause a cave in? “And here lies our mining operations.” “We mine all kinds of materials, from various types of rocky minerals, to even eventually a few jewels to go around,” Rose pointing. “We have designed special methods intended for the workers safety, having one of the safest, productive mines in the world!” “By keeping our staff safe, keeps our town prosperous and with excellent ingenuity!” Observing the workers, was proud of such notions. “This cave also produces a special kind of rock, which I named colten, works great for fires, we used this to heat many things.” The colten rocks were the same to our earthly term as coal. Rose continued to take Winslow throughout the mining caves, and throughout the entire construction operations. He saw all the minerals they mined for, and showed him a few rare jewels that only came once in a blue moon! After she was done went back to the heart of the town, back to it's main buildings. “As you can see ahead is where our work houses dwell.” “These are where our vegetation, and dairy is brought and processed.” “Then it's taken to our markets, bakeries, restaurants, you name it!” Pictures of food were detailed on the fronts of the restaurants and various food buildings. “Here are where the cooks work, everyone comes here to dine.” “It's the kids favorite place to eat.” “Next comes our cloth operations.” She took him to various building, workers were intently making apparent clothing. “Volunteers here are responsible for creating apparel, they make some of the finest attire in the world.” “Of course, it isn't easy to bring such material to them, I have to go far and wide to find it.” “You mean plunder them,” he butted in. “If that's how you want to put it!” Annoyed at him. “Some of the material originate from the rich eastern lands, others deviate from countless nations.”  “We also have several ways of making our own materials as well.” “With some research we have discovered many advancements, with silk worms to create silk, sheep to make wool, and so much more!”  “Along with many devices and inventions to produce them.” “Over there are other cloth producing buildings, in charge of tanning, dye, sewing, etc.” “Jewelery is next to it.” “We also produce the finest jewelery.” “But these are much rarer due to low quantities.”  Pacing further went on to other buildings. “Over here, is one of the most important landmarks.” “Welcome to our medical facilities.” “Many fine medics, chemists, and volunteers come to treat and heal.” “Also we have vast studies on  medical sciences, herbs, and advancing treatments.” “Renowned medics from all over the world have dedicated their time and efforts.” “We are all most fortunate for doing so.” “The children here receive the best medical attention out of any nation in the world.” “For greed and corruption play no part here, only inspirations to discover new and better cures.” “Here medics can study in peace, no politics!” Winslow was speechless! Looking around saw the greatest medical achievements anyone had ever thought of! How in the world did she come up with such an idea?! These developments were more advanced than his own kingdom! What brilliants! “In the distance not that far, are churches.” “I've appropriated great emphasis on devising arrangements to focus on their spiritual guidance and studies.” “If any child feels inclined to worship, there are churches they can attend.” “I would like nothing more but to see God be apart of their lives if they choose too,” taking him around the various cathedrals. “Ah yes, and here we are!” Rose lead him farther, advancing more into the town. “Mentioning before, you stated about their education.” “I have taken the utmost devoted attention to the detail of their schooling.” “To my standards, education is one of the greater importance of life.” “I made sure, to take well care of these faculties.” “Shall we see them now?!” She then began taking him amongst their extensive schools. Showing him their massive studies. The buildings were built from ancient expensive materials, crafted into fine institutions. It was truly amazing! She held nothing back, giving the  grandest scholars, intellectual opportunities that no child could receive. Luxuries that only the privileged could seize. “Many scholars have devoted their efforts, donating their time to teach here.” All of the most noble professors, brilliant minds!” “Tho, this isn't all, we have much more to see!” Rushing ahead went about her way. He quickly followed her. Going much further into the town, passing the capital quite far. This attraction, had truly touched him. He stood there gawking! “Ohh, fond of this are we?” “I thought you would.” “This is our art plaza.” “Culture is a necessity, a must!” “I took the essential liberties of establishing the most elaborate arts and musical initiations ever built.” “Out of all subjects, I do confess I favor the most.” “Music and art has accompanied me throughout my life, making the best of companions.” “The greatest friend one could ever ask for.” “Shall we explore?!” Rose gave a teasing face. Winslow was excited, this was a artist's paradise! Casually pacing, started glancing at all the architectures around. He was mystified! “Famous painters from all over the world come here to teach, along with many musicians.” “Gladly donating their doctrines, for here they can perform without limitations.” “The majority we rescued from Zancadia and are hiding out here for safety.” “That over there, is where our art gallery is.” “Had the privilege of designing this monument, assisting with it's construction.” “Would you like to see it?” Winslow smiled at her, of course he would! “First we must enter through the museum.” And was it huge, the largest he had ever seen! It was a magnificent structure, built with huge pillars, made out of marble. Expensive metals were beautifully smelted into it. Elegant designs, scenes of historical importance. He had not seen such beauty since the Croman Empire! “The designs of this structure was sought after Crome, I deeply love their works.” “Ancient Castillan origins.” “I fancy classical Castillia, studying it's ancient history.” “Crome surely took after it's mother country.” The prince followed her, all too forgetting her pirating ways. For once, he was seeing a different side, seeing a humanistic facet. They begun to stroll amidst, conceiving the new surroundings, distinguishing every historical object. Rose began to give him a tourist first class lecture, teaching him new cogitations, showing him all displays. Winslow found this very amusing. Here he was being guided and instructed by a pirate? Who would ever believe that a pirate would lecture in a museum? She guided the prince to a certain display. It was a famous political person, sculpted, holding a important book in his hand. “This man you see, was a man of very fine ideals.” “His name Lester Sumrall.” “His views shared by very many.” “He died fighting for diversity.” “His prospects, were against popular views.” “He written various books, speaking upon the rights of the people.” “He spoke of everyone's rights, of a diversified equality.” “That all should be treated fairly, united in respect, but not unified.” “For all beings are created differently, unique.” “Not the same.” “If all aspired to be completely identical, what a tragedy it would be.” “Diversity is what gives way for advanced ingenuity.” “This is how God designed our universe, to differ between each creations.” Turning away, went to another famous statue. “While Lester spoke of a diversified equality, this woman spoke of a another importance.” “Anorak Cameo, being one of the first woman activist.” “Was martyred protesting for the protection of our sisterhood.” “A new notion for Castillia, gave the kingdom something innovative to think about.” “Well beyond our times that's for sure!” “Anorak fought for all stations to be regarded, despite their gender; very similar to that of Lester.”  “Speaking upon the rights of women, to establish respect and to be treated fairly.” “Even so, was also known for speaking upon the importance of taking care of the less fortunate.” “Her dedication to eliminating poverty, was her life mission.” “She was against corruptions, and greed.” “Disgusted that governments were ruled upon the essence of profits, not upon the rights of the citizens.” “Speaking out, she taught, how can anyone seek true freedom, if capitalism is the center point of the rulings.” “Profits cannot replace freedoms.” “Freedom can not be bought, bribed, or swindled.” “If any nation does not surround their land unto all stations being acknowledged and respected, the law to put all rights into effect, then the country will surely collapse!” “It is wrong to run a country on sole financial gain, rather than on all entities being recognized.” Winslow was curious, what was capitalism? “What is this new concept, capitalism?” He asked intrigued. “Simply, as you stated, a new conception.” “The theory surrounds on the entirety of wealth.” “It only respects and honors companies and the rich.” “It's entire structures of government is built around economic handling.” “It is essential to have good economics, bringing wealth into the country.” “It's impossible to run a country well without it, but what good is it if it gets swallowed by individuals.” “If the wealth get's stuck in companies and rich persons, and others suffer poor in poverty?” “Being that of which a body, if the blood does not circulate to all parts, those parts will die off then spreading a disease to the rest of the body.” “Soon the whole body will die.” “How vital it is, for nations to have proper wealth circulation, to be dispensed to all parts.” “Not to get stuck in greedy hands!” “This is why financial gain does not work, eventually destroying the whole country!” “What good is it to have the rich, when the poor is dead and unable to toil what the high ups profit from!” This information smacked him square in the face, he stumbled upon it. He had not heard such a speech since he was young, a old childhood teacher, gave lectures instructing him, for one day to serve his kingdom. That teacher spoke often about the kingdom being a body, consisting of many layers. But how is it that this pirate spoke of such? How did she know of these teachings? And very few actually respected and acknowledged such? Often disregarded, perceived as liberal renegades. Again walking away, left the history part of the museum and went on to the arts sections; came to a very famous painting. “Do you see this painting?” “Examine very closely.” Pointed her hand at this exotic portrait. He stared at it for quite a while. The painting consisted of a person staring into a mirror. The person's reflection went deep into the mirror never ending. Reflected on and on, repeated the image. Scratching his head wondered why someone would want to paint this? “I don't get it, what's with all the mirror reflections?” “Javier Agramonte, is a famous painter from Emerald Isle.” “His great works, depicted inner emotions, exhibiting upon the many aspects of life, symbolizing through poetical efforts the many meanings of living.” “This work in particular resembles one's inner being.” “How in one, many persons can dwell.” “Their are countless different sides to a person, inside our souls is many universes.” “Those around them can only see certain angles, but if examined in alternate prospectives, can truly see other reflections of their beings.” “I suppose it explains why we love acting and arts so much, for it reveals other shades of a person.” “That's why Javier painted many mirrors, with infinite reflections.” Rose continued to admire the piece. “I love Javier's works very much, not only was he an artist, but also a philosopher, teacher, and reformist.” “Javier was born in Castillia, but raised in Emerald Isle.” “Many wealthy families have been sent by the king to establish the island, setting up a new country for the kingdom.” “His family was one of them.” “He fought upon the many aspects of freedom, fighting for a new political system constraint to the entire populace ideals.” “As a revolutionist, is rebelling for the country's exemption.” “The island has sought separation, demanding it's own form of government.” “I do admit I disagree with their requests, but I do admire their ideals for a new established government.” “One that is ran upon the people needs, whom truly is ruled by the public, not the elites.” “Where all are respected despite stations, free from wealthy corruptions.” Continuing on, strolled to the musical hall. This was where musical history was displayed. “And the grand finale, is where our music hall lies.” He gawped about, lost in paradise! Forgetting his surroundings, his current predicaments! It was as if he had arrived in another dimension, freed from this wretched world! This was an musician's dream come true! She took notice to his wonder. Watching similar to that of a boy lost in a candy shop, who couldn't decide which candy to pick, being in love with the whole shop. “I take that this is your favorite attraction out of the entire town, is it?” He kept smiling at her, unable to take his sight off the place! “What I hear is that you've got a pretty good singing voice.” Testing him. “How do you know that?” Suspicious of her. “Oh, let's just say I've been following your vocal talents.” “The world is quite taken with your musical abilities.” “They speak very fond of you.” “At first I no idea who you were, never heard much about you.” “But soon many fell in love with your music.” “You've created quite a name for yourself.” “Your fame has reached many lands.” He gave her a questioning glance. “I thought you didn't know who I was, what was with the whole interrogation then?” She smirked. “I might have heard of your name, but that doesn't mean that I know what this little Winslow character looked like.” “All I knew is that he was some talented prince, with a great set of pipes.” “Beside how was I too know if you were really lying or not?” “Pretending to be this Prince from Aragon, hmmm?!” He pivoted around teasingly glaring at her. “Well, do you think I'm lying?!” She just kept still. “Perhaps,” she chuckled. Curious, he wondered what her true motives was since the very get go. “Were you really going to use these so called torture devices on us?”  “Maybe, maybe not.” She begun laughing. “Alright, so I'm a horrible liar.” “My honesty truly betrays me.” “I'm not the torturing type, I prefer other less messy civilized techniques.” “No, I was never going to use them, just was a bluff.” “I've never had to use them before, only a few times, and they were only used on hard core evil criminals.” “They contained no such human features, absolutely evil.” “Mostly I deal with outcasts, whom I do not judge at all.” “But once in awhile, vile maggots turn up, one's that can not be taken lightly.” Looking down to the floor went into a saddened complexion. It was obvious to see that the pirating life had brought a burdened turmoil. Was eating her from the inside out. They kept on strolling along, spying all the instruments lying about on display. Several famous composers were on display as well, many statues and portraits hung covering the walls. Rose stood in front of one of them. A women stared out from the portrait, professionally playing the piano. Winslow looked at the portrait befuddled. That instrument she was playing, was rather new. A novel inventive instrument. It had not been on the market for very long. “This composer, while not being the most famous, due not to her talent but to the fact of her being of a female in our male tyrant society.” “They tried preventing her from playing, thus far her talent was so great it could not be hidden.” Noticing her habit, saw that she was a nun. “Is she a nun,” he asked, curious. “Indeed she is.” “Bernadette Smelts, comes from a nunnery in the outskirts of the northern lands.” “She too had causes, prompting for spiritual liberties.” “A infamous mystic.” “Mystic, what's that?” Pondering. “A very ancient belief.” “When the word was first created, it came from the eastern lands eons ago.” “Describing the great effects of art, those who are connected to artistic creations are for which also connected to the heavens.” “Transporting a soul beyond this world to another divine dimension.” “When the easterners came throughout numerous lands, they too spread their concepts and traditions.” “The word then was translated in Castillían, meaning to be spiritual.” “It is a auric wisdom, beyond our physical intelligence, a spiritual science if you will.” “Beyond our primitive technologies, and precepts.” “None of our studies can bring about such brilliance.” “Bernadette became well known in many churches, mostly by all her famous compositions and musical pieces.” “Her writings and poetry was just as well known.” “Establishing new spiritual doctrines.” “Bernadette's name will go down in history along with Heather, one of the beginning Mystics back in the golden ages.” “Heather was a famous organist back in her day, also writing famed poetry.” “She begun many spiritual teaching and doctrines paving the way currently now.” “Heather's musical pieces are still being played today.” Concluding the tour, contemplated all the works they had observed. “Numerous infamous figures exhibit about in our museums, inspiring the children to rise to new levels.” Public figures like Lester advocating for diversity, Anorak for women's respect and against poverty, Javier for an revolution, and even Bernadette for spiritual freedom.” “One thing is for sure they all fought for everyone to be treated fairly, despite stations, classes, or ranks.” “True freedom.” “For a greater cause!” “It is our purpose to instruct these children, show them admiration they can aspire to.” Changing her serious mood then turned to him, giving a playful face. “So, Prince, would you like to see our theater?” “There's an orchestra performing right now.” “Would you care to join, I love hearing them preform.” “The most exquisite no doubt.” “Jacques is an excellent composer, leading a talented orchestra.” Grinning in surprise, anticipated her next move. Rose then lead Winslow into the huge theater house, the hugest, most elaborate theater he had ever seen. Designed in a Castillían fashion, golden styled. Embodied with all kind of elegant tastes. The most expensive materials were crafted into all the walls, ceilings, even the numerous chairs. Masterpieces were painted on the ceiling. He looked about and saw nothing but elegance. What a magnificent theater. Truly his favorite attraction out of the whole town. How in the world could they have built such a beauty! The seats were of a silken red, comfortable, rather cozy. Sitting next to Rose was anxious to hear the musician's. The musician's were practicing, even their exercises were beautiful, drowning the theater with sweet melodies. They both sat and listened for awhile, soaking in the lovely ambience. Staring at the prince, became curious. “Prince, tell me, can you really sing?” Turning, slightly glanced at her. “I thought you knew my music,” teasing her. “I've never actually attended any of your performances.” “Your tickets are far beyond what I can financially afford.” “Those theatricals, just outrages!” “Do you actually know how expensive you are!” “I mean, it's an arm and an leg to attend to one of your events!” “You might be a wonderful musician, with first class auditions, but I'm not spending that kind of wealth!” “And besides, pirates aren't exactly welcomed to these kind of events.” Chuckling softly at her own comments. Winslow laughed out loud, he couldn't help himself. Trying to imagine a pirate sitting in the audience, watching a theater. What kind of pirate appreciates music? Rose was one of the most funniest amusing girls he had ever met. He couldn't hardly believe her to be a raider. “Well... would you like to perform right now?” Curious to hear his vocals. “Really!” Excited at such a opportunity. “Yah, why not, the orchestra is just practicing anyhow.” “Won't they get upset about it!?” Afraid of offending them. “Nah, not if I ask them too!” She then got up and went to the platform speaking to the maestro. A look of excitement was spread across his face, overjoyed at such a proposal. Rose returned gesturing for him to follow. She took him to the stage, eager to hear him perform. Even brought him a fiddle, hearing about his other musical abilities. Sitting in the front row heard his voice, echoing throughout the halls. Resonating off all the walls. His angelic tone, a unique kind of sound. Those vocals weren't like any other she had ever heard before. The sound vibrant, strong, deep, soaked into her soul touching every part. Vibrating every sensory within her spirit, turning on her heart. Creating goosebumps, sending tingles all over her body. He then grasped the fiddle and begun playing a angelical tune. Accompanying his voice perfectly. For a second he put down the fiddle and motioned for her to come up on stage. He wanted her to join him, to share in the moment. At first she shook her head, laughing off the the gesture, for she did not want to embarrass herself. She felt her voice to be horrible, containing no talent. Yet, Winslow wouldn't take no for an answer. Dragging her from the row, pulled her unto the stage with him. He sung an old melodic line, waiting for her to join him. Trying to avoid his gestures, he still persisted, pressuring her. Eventually, she sung with him. They made a perfect duet, both voices accompanying each other. Accenting, enhancing both their abilities. Sounding better combined, rather than separated. The orchestra was delighted, bursting music in the background. All together the sound was unforgettable, reverberating, bursting a magical performance! Playfully testing each other's ability, exercising their musical talents. Slowing down the tempo, Winslow deeply fell into her eyes, getting lost. Positioning into a dancing position took her hands in his. Composing his hands to her's, conducted in official noble fashions. The only dances Winslow knew where the one's he was taught to succeed for social events and ties. Dancing the instant away, slowly gracefully glided across the stage, completely symmetrical. Not only did they make perfect musical duet partners, but also dance partners as well. For a moment it was just them two, no one else. The world stood still, twirling about, savoring the current present. Mischievously jesting, teased each other dancing. Laughing, joking around made their way back to their seats. They sighed in silence watching the orchestra go back to performing by themselves.  Leaning back enjoyed the sound as a boy ran to Rose, he whispered into her ear. Giving a mysterious mischievous grin, she smirked at Winslow. Whispering back into the boy's ear, conversed something beyond his hearing. Continuing to smile at the prince as the boy went out of sight. Rose then leaned over to him and gently touched his arm. “The orchestra is not ready yet.” “They have requested to have more time, for they have a very special surprise.” “The good citizens of this town have organized a special event for you.” “They have arranged a play, after the banquet.” “Would you be so kind as to attend?” He smiled back at her. He would love to attend a play. “I would be most honored.” Replying back, excited that a whole town would care as so much to create a entire play for him. “Excellent!” “Then it's settled then!” Both started giggling with each other. “The boy informs me that the banquet is ready.” “Everyone is awaiting for your arrival.” “Well, in that case I wouldn't want to disappoint then.” Winslow fidgeting with his clothes, ruffled from all the ventures he had embarked on.“But first, let's get prepared for dinner, shall we?” Getting up from her seat. Winslow wondered where she was going. “Where you off too now?” “To get washed up for dinner, are you coming?” “Alright then?” He wasn't sure where she was leaving to, but he did want to freshen up. Following right behind her, left the museum. They walked on for quite awhile, making idle chit chat. He asked her all kinds of questions, especially about the town. Fascinated at all the knowledge she contained, her brilliance locked inside. Wondered why she kept all of this so hidden away. He begun to inquire about how the town got constructed in the first place. “I got the privilege of designing the entire plans of this town, supervising it's construction, I too also put my hard sweat and blood into it's work.” “This whole town has been a team effort.” “It took us  years to get it done, but we manage due to the tremendous help from all the volunteers.” “Massive people from all around the world came here to help and settle down in this town, most of them were victims to the empire themselves.” “They came here to settle, and hide from the emperor's clutches.” “I am most grateful for everyone's hard work, whom toiled to bring all our hopes and dreams into a reality.” “Without them none of this would have been possible.” Both paced onward in a bit of silence. Remembering back, recalling how everyone referred to Rose, as some kind of pirate princess or something? He wondered what they all meant? “So I'm curious.” “Why is it they call you a pirate princess?” “What's with this whole royal piracy stuff?” “Huh?” Curiously. She smirked, softly chuckling to herself. “I could tell you, but I think it would be far more grander to show you.” “Show me?” “Is there more?” “Yes,” leading him away from the celebration that was in preparation. “Oh, so a dinner and a show.” Jesting with her. “Ahh... it's an fantastic view, alright.” Rose gave him a flirting glare, enticing his imagination. “Come on, let's get washed up,” still giving him a teasing flirting face. What sneaky thing was Rose up to? He swore, she always had a card up her sleeve, always keeping him on his toes. Walking far away, what seemed like awhile, Rose trotting up a trail pursuing it. Accompanying right behind, both traveled along it. The path lead to an unforgettable sight! Blinking his eyes, did a double take. He couldn't believe it! For right in front of them lied a huge castle! A grand marvelous scenery!

He chose not to wear the bulky bomb protection suit. 'You can't react to any sniper fire and you get tunnel-vision,' he explains. So, protected by just a helmet and standard-issue flak jacket, he began what bomb disposal officers term 'the longest walk', stepping gingerly into a 5 foot deep and 8 foot wide crater.

'I found a piece of red detonating cord between my legs,' he says. 'That's when I knew I was screwed.' Realizing he had been sucked into a trap, Sgt Burghardt, 35, yelled at everyone to stay back. At that moment, an insurgent, probably watching through binoculars, pressed a button on his mobile phone to detonate the secondary device below the sergeant's feet 'A chill went up the back of my neck and then the bomb exploded,' he recalls. 'As I was in the air I remember thinking, 'I don't believe they got me..' I was just ticked off they were able to do it. Then I was lying on the road, not able to feel anything from the waist down.' His fellow Marines cut off his trousers to see how badly he was hurt. None could believe his legs were still there 'My dad's a Vietnam vet who's paralyzed from the waist down,' says Sgt Burghardt. 'I was lying there thinking I didn't want to be in a wheelchair next to my dad and for him to see me like that. They started to cut away my pants and I felt a real sharp pain and blood trickling down. Then I wiggled my toes and I thought, 'Good, I'm in business.'

Copies of a photograph depicting his defiance, taken by Jeff Bundy for the Omaha World-Herald, adorn the walls of homes across America and that of Col John Gronski, the brigade commander in Ramadi, who has hailed the image as an exemplar of the warrior spirit. Sgt Burghardt's injuries - burns and wounds to his legs and buttocks - kept him off duty for nearly a month and could have earned him a ticket home.

Socotra Island This is an interesting island just off the horn of Africa and the coast of Yemen. The Somali Pirates ply these waters. It is like being on a different planet. These pictures and information are excellent viewing and reading. Read more ...
SOCOTRA ISLAND : You have to see it to believe it. This island simply blows away any notion about what is considered "normal" for a landscape on Earth. Imagine waking up one day on Socotra Island and taking a good look around you. After a yelp of disbelief, you'd be inclined to think you were transported to another planet - or traveled to another era of Earth's creation. The second would be closer to the truth for this island, which is part of a group of 4 islands, Has been geographically isolated from mainland Africa for the last 6 or 7 million years. Like the Galapagos Islands, this island is teeming with 700 extremely rare species of flora and fauna, a full 1/3 of which are endemic; that is, found nowhere else on Earth. The climate is harsh, hot, and dry, and yet - the most amazing plant life thrives there. Situated in the Indian Ocean 250 km (155 miles) east of Somalia and 340 km (212 miles) southeast of Yemen, the wide sandy beaches rise to limestone plateaus full of caves (some 7 kilometers (4.4 miles in length) and mountains up to 1525 meters high (5007 feet). The name “Socotra” is derived from a Sanscrit name meaning "The Island of Bliss." Is it the beaches? The isolation and quiet? Or the strange and crazy botanical allure? Alien-looking plants. H. P. Lovecraft's secret inspiration? Was the famous Chtulhu myths creator aware of these forbidding mountains with their hauntingly weird flora? (Think of plant mutations from his "The Color out of Space") We are almost tempted to call Socotra the other "Mountains of Madness"- the trees and plants of this island were preserved thru their long geological isolation with some varieties being 20 million years old. We begin with the dracena cinnibaris or Dragon's Blood Tree, the source of valuable resin for varnishes, dyes, and "cure-all" medicine; also (predictably) used in medieval ritual magic and alchemy. The branches spread out into the sky and from below appear to hover over the landscape like so many flying saucers. And from above they have a distinct mushroom look. There is also the Desert Rose (Adenium Obesium) which looks like nothing so much as a blooming elephant leg. Dorstenia Gigas ..... apparently does not require any soil and sinks roots straight into the bare rock. It also has a distinct personality and likes to smile for the camera. Somewhat similar to the weird Dorstenia Gigas, is this "Bucha" vegetable, found as far north as Croatia . I hope it's not pregnant with anything malignant inside this sack. John Wyndham (with his "The Day of the Triffids") would've loved it. Also found in Socotra's landscape is the ever-strange and extremely rare Cucumber Tree (Dendrosicyos Socotranum) - and, yes, it is related to what's sitting in a pickle jar in your fridge. Getting around can be a challenge as there are almost no roads. Despite the fact that this island has around 40,000 inhabitants, the Yemeni government put in the first roads just 2 years ago - after negotiations with UNESCO, which has declared this island a World Natural Heritage Site. I would prefer a camel ride to what is bound to be a bumpy and slow 4x4 ride. It is a quiet and peaceful enclave in an otherwise troubled world. If you decide to visit there, you can forget about beachfront hotels and restaurants. This island is geared towards Eco-tourism and sustaining the local economy and way of life. This island is a birder's paradise as well with 140 different species of birds ....10 of which are not found anywhere else in the world. A unique Socotra Warbler, Sunbird, Starling, Bunting, Sparrow and Cisticola are among the ones found here. There are also Socotra Cormorants. Want to see some fairy-tale shipwrecks? There are diving tours available. Hopefully some IMAX crew would film it in all its glory one day. To give you a glimpse of Socotra's and Yemen 's in general totally unique architecture, check out this place located on the mainland .... Al Hajarah, Yemen - walled city in the mist. Socotra is one of those "lost world" islands (separated from the world six million years ago) where intrepid travelers - particularly those seeking exotic nature and wildlife in a remote tropical setting - can go days on end without rubbing shoulders with that less-than-endangered species, tourists. Known for decades as the Galapagos-of-the-Indian-Ocean, it's the world's tenth richest island for endemic plant species. And the biggest island in the Middle East is 125 kilometers (78 miles) in length and 45 kilometers (28 miles) across. Meanwhile the landscape is one of contrasts. For example, it has isolated nature preserves with dazzling wildlife (including 900 species of plants and the famous Dragon's Blood Tree (Dracaena Cinnabara) and the some of rarest birds that exist nowhere else in the world), and picturesque unspoiled sandy beaches.

Joel S. Goldsmith
Joel Goldsmith (1892 – 1964), an internationally recognized spiritual teacher, author, and healer, taught a mystical message based on spiritual principles revealed to him. He called this message “The Infinite Way.” As a young man apprenticed t Read more ...
o his father in the import business, Joel Goldsmith traveled the world. He repeatedly saw instances of man’s inhumanity to man and saw the poverty and injustice that plagued the world. He wondered where God was in this human scene, and from then on, he was on a continuous search for truth. One day later in his life, Joel became ill and sought help from a Christian Science practitioner. He was healed of the physical problem and also had a complete change of consciousness. His lifestyle was permanently changed, and he found that he had the healing gift. Within days, many people were calling him for help. This was to be the beginning a long and fruitful healing practice and spiritual ministry. For years, Joel immersed himself in a deep study of the scriptures of the world, looking for the principles underlying healing. He joined the Christian Science Church, and for years he worked as a healing practitioner and spiritual advisor. In 1945, he left the Christian Science organization because he was receiving revelations of truth from within that could not be expressed inside the structure of an organized religion. Once he became independent in 1946, Goldsmith wrote his first book, The Infinite Way. He thought that he would then retire to a life of contemplation. But the message in The Infinite Way prompted people to seek Goldsmith out as a spiritual teacher. Reluctantly, he held private classes on the mystical interpretation of the Bible. Later, some of these classes were published as the book Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture. Soon his writings brought invitations for lecture tours and classes. He traveled widely in the United States, Canada, England, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, teaching the message of The Infinite Way. The revelations that Joel received are recognized by many as the original message that Jesus revealed to the world, now coming through another messenger in the language of the twentieth century. Joel had a unique teaching style. He did not prepare “lessons.” Instead, his class preparation was deep meditation during the days preceding a class. When he took the platform, he opened his consciousness to Spirit. He said that the spiritual impartations that came through in classes were often new to him, and that he was hearing them for the first time along with the students. Throughout his life as a spiritual teacher, Joel said he was always “under orders” from the Spirit within that guided him. Although Goldsmith gave many, many classes, he always taught that the real work of spiritual development is done by the individual in the inner silence. As the student body grew, Joel became adamant that the Infinite Way should never be organized. He believed that historically, organization had “put the veil” on messages of spiritual truth and obscured the original teaching. He wanted no memberships, obligations, dogmatic codes, or structured leadership for the Infinite Way message. To this day, there is no organization, membership, obligation, or formal leadership associated with the teaching. Spiritual seekers who have been drawn to the message of the Infinite Way somehow find the message on their own. They may enjoy meeting with others on the same path in classes or in tape groups, but their core practice is individual study, meditation, and practice of the principles. As Joel Goldsmith’s teaching ministry unfolded, he published many books, which were largely based on his ever-growing class work. All titles are still in active circulation as both print and e-books, and a number of his books have been translated into multiple language editions. In the early 1950s, some forward-thinking students asked Joel to record his classes on a tape recorder, and during his teaching ministry, more than 1500 hours of his class work were recorded. These recordings have been preserved through the loving efforts of many dedicated people over the years and are still available in current formats for listening and study. Although Joel Goldsmith transitioned in 1964, his teachings have continued to grow in popularity. His work has inspired many of today’s spiritual teachers, who consider Goldsmith a key influence in their spiritual development: Eckhart Tolle: “A new generation of mature seekers, receptive to spiritual truth, is now discovering Joel Goldsmith’s teachings, which have lost none of their relevance, aliveness and power. I foresee that those teachings will reach and impact even more people in the 21st century than during his lifetime. Joel Goldsmith’s inspired and profoundly inspiring books represent a vital contribution to the spiritual awakening of humanity.” Dr. Wayne Dyer: “I have an 8×10 picture of Joel Goldsmith on my writing table. I feel his presence with me every day – I consider Joel to be one of my most important teachers. His wisdom guides me in all of my work.” Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D.: “Joel Goldsmith is the ultimate teacher of spiritual wisdom.” Marianne Williamson: “Joel Goldsmith has opened a door in my soul. He has helped me immeasurably in my search for peace.” Joel Goldsmith left a mystical message to benefit the world and a treasure to be cherished by all students of truth.

Marlyn Chan 2004-2005: Conception and early work In August 2004,[5] Alice Nine formed after the disbandment of the band Givuss, and the band's vocalist, Shou, and guitarist Tora continued on to search for members to form a new band. Saga, the bassist for the ba Read more ...
nd Delta Ark, and Nao, drummer for the bands Fatima and RusH, were also seeking bandmates as well, and the four members eventually joined together. Hiroto was the last member to join after Shou, Tora, Saga, and Nao spotted him at a performance with his band at the time, Baquepia. Shou explains that the "Alice" in the band's name was something that they believed sounded "very visual kei" to them, while the "Nine" is written in kanji and represents their origins as a Japanese band.[6] Their first concert was held at the Ikebukuro Cyber on May 11, 2004 and soon after they released their first single, Namae wa, Mada Nai in July, and they soon toured with fellow PS Company band BIS. In November, their first EP, Gion Shouja no Kane ga Naru, was released, and later that month, they did a nation-wide tour with the band Karen from Under Code Productions.[5] In 2005, the pace of CD releases increased; the band released the singles "Gin no Tsuki Kuroi Hoshi," "Yami ni Chiru Sakura," and "Yuri wa Aoku Saite" consecutively for three months. These singles were eventually compiled onto their first major EP, Kasou Musou Shi, through a joint deal with PS Company and King Records. Alice Nine also went on tour with several bands throughout the year, including Ayabie, Kra, and Kagrra. Following these events, the band had its first solo tour, Alice in Wonder Tour, in August that year.[2][7] 2007: Alpha and mainstream success A turning point for the band came when the single "Jewels" was released in March. The single allowed the band to land their first magazine cover and feature article with volume 171 of Shoxx Magazine.[8] Later that month on April 28, the band released "Dive into the Sun," a photobook that included an exclusive CD containing the song "Gekkou Yoku." Another landmark was Alice Nine's first performance outside of Japan at the JRock Revolution festival in Los Angeles, California on May 25, 2007. They joined with several other Japanese bands and became the closing performance of the Friday that weekend.[1][9] The release of the "White Prayer" single in June marked another milestone for the band's development; vocalist Shou explained in an interview with Shoxx Magazine that the song defined the style that the band was aiming for and hoped to maintain in the future. The process of the song's creation also came about more naturally than usual, as many songs until then were made through trial and error.[10] Later that year, on October 24, the group's single "Tsubasa" was released and peaked at number six on the Oricon charts,[11] making it one of their successful singles to date and landing the band a guest appearance on the Fuji Television variety show Hey! Hey! Hey! Music Champ for the first time. On November 28, 2007, their second full-length album, Alpha, was released. The title for the album originated as a means to describe the band's return to their roots and beginning anew. The uppercase first letter of the Greek alphabet, Α, was chosen to symbolize this idea. Aside from the singles to be compiled onto the album, recording for songs began in September and lasted for approximately one month.[10] The album reached the ninth position on the Oricon weekly chart, selling over 17,000 copies in its first week.[12] 2008: Vandalize Alice Nine started off the year with another tour, alice nine. 2008 standing tour "A to U". However, complications arose when guitarist Tora was diagnosed with a spinal disc hernia, which had worsened over time to the point of numbness throughout the left side of his body. Finally seeking medical help, the tour had to be postponed until Tora recovered enough for the band to resume activities in Tokyo.[13] The band released a new single, titled "Mirror Ball" on March 26, 2008. The title song of the single was used in the live-action movie adaptation of the manga Aquarian Age.[14] Two compilations of the band's music videos, "Alice in Pictures I" and "Alice in Pictures II", were released on July 2, 2008. The DVDs contain approximately 8 music videos in chronological order of their original release, with "Alice in Pictures I" including the videos from "Gin no Tsuki Kuroi Hoshi" to "Number Six". "Alice in Pictures II" contains videos from "Jewels" to "Eraser -Memoire d'une fleur-", and also includes a new music video for "Gekkou Yoku", a song which was exclusively included with the "Dive into the Sun" photobook.[15][16] On August 6, the band released their latest single, "Rainbows." The single reached a peak mark of No. 3 on the Japanese Oricon daily charts which is currently the band's current top position on mainstream Japanese charts.[17] The band also started their tour called "Discotheque play like 'A' Rainbows" which coincided with the new single. The tour lasted the entire month, and the concert footage was released on their live DVD, Discotheque play like "A" Rainbows -enter&exit-, on October 29, 2008.[18] The band's fourteenth maxi-single, "Cross Game," was released on December 10, 2008. The title song was used as the ending theme song for the second season of the anime Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D'S and was released in two versions.[19] On December 19, 2008, the band's tour at the time culminated in the grand final, named "Crossing the Supernova", at NHK Hall.[20] A blog entry by vocalist Shou announced that the band was in recording sessions for a third album named Vandalize, which was released on January 14, 2009.[21][22] "Cross Game" is the third single to be featured on the album, along with "Mirror Ball" and "Rainbows" for a total of 11 tracks. The album's title comes from the theme of "the destruction of culture."[23] 2009: Fifth anniversary In the following weeks of the release of Vandalize, the band started their tour for the year, Untitled Vandal(ism). The first half of the tour ran from February to April, while its second half ran throughout the month of July. The tour's finale, "Graced the Beautiful Day," occurred on August 23, 2009 at the Tokyo International Forum Hall.[24] Footage from the finale, as well as live studio performance footage, is set to be released on the live DVD, "Untitled Vandal(ism) #Finale 'Graced the Beautiful Day,'" on November 11, 2009.[25] On June 2, 2009, a blog entry by vocalist Shou announced the changing of their name from "アリス九號." or "alice nine." to "Alice Nine" for media reasons. He explained that the Japanese transcription was beginning to lose its purpose as a means to "represent aesthetics" and that the English transcription was closest to the band's original intention. The Japanese transcription could also not be read as the band's proper name without the use of furigana or other means of alternative text. The entry also announced new work for the band's fifth anniversary—a new single and a new book, which would use the new English transcription upon release. Alice Nine's fifteenth maxi-single, "Hana," was released on August 5, 2009. Shou describes the titular track as a "danceable song with a sweet and oriental feeling." "Piece of 5ive Elements 'The Book' ~Alice Nine 5th~" is a book containing interviews, reports on the band's concert activities during 2009, photography, and more, and was released on August 24, 2009.[26][27] On December 16, Alice Nine held their last concert for 2009. During the three-hour-long event, they performed a variety of songs from their entire career. For the very first song of the night, the band also performed a cover of The Beatles' hit song, "All You Need Is Love." 2010-present: Gemini and "9" The band began its activities in 2010 with the announcement of a compilation album, Alice Nine Complete Collection 2006-2009, which contains the title songs from each of the band's maxi-singles released since 2006. The compilation album was released on March 24, 2010. The band also finished their first tour of the year, Kikagaku no Kotowari (幾何学ノ理), that same month.[28] In 2009, the band would also begin broadcasting programs on their own channel, "Alice 9 Channel," on the popular Japanese video sharing website Nico Nico Douga. The monthly program, hosted by guitarist Tora, features live interviews and announcements with members of the band, as well as broadcasts of concert footage and music videos. The live structure of the broadcast also allows users to comment on the program and give real-time feedback on questions directed towards the audience. The first installment of the program aired on September 2009 and was viewed by over 16,000 users.[29] On April 4, 2010, during the final live of the Kikagaku no Kotowari tour, the band announced the release of a new single on August 4, 2010. However, the official website stated a slight delay of the single's release, pushing the release date to August 25, 2010. In the same announcement, the single was officially titled "Senkou." Filming of the music video for "Senkou" began in May 2010.[30] The band's official 2010 tour, Flash Light from the past, began on July 5, 2010. The tour spanned over the following four months with 30 performances in 27 live houses across Japan. The tour ended with a concert on January 6, 2011 at the Nippon Budokan.[31][32][33] The final performance was aired on January 31 on WOWOW, and a DVD containing footage of the concert is to be released on May 2, 2011.[34] The bass guitars and outfit that Saga used during the tour were displayed at ESP Ochanomizu Technical House in Tokyo, Japan until January 23. In the November 2010 edition of "Alice 9 Channel," Saga accidentally revealed the title and tentative release date for the band's fourth studio album, Gemini, earlier than planned.[35] Details of the album followed soon after, and Gemini was released on February 9, 2011. The album ranked at number 3 on the Oricon Weekly Charts upon release, making the album their highest ranking release yet.[36] A tour coinciding with the release of the album, entitled "Spring Circuit -Prelude to 'Gemini'-," will run from April to May 2011.[37] On February 22, 2012, Alice Nine released their album "9". Style Alice Nine's musical style can mainly be described as rock, with touches of pop, and a few instances of dance music. Their works range diversely, including heavier songs that were more prevalent in their early career, slow ballads and medium tempo songs, and the lighter rock sound marked with more melodic instrumentation and synthesizers that is present on their 2007 album Alpha. As they progressed through the years, the band began releasing songs that focus more on appealing to the mainstream public. On their newest album, 9, Alice Nine utilizes more progressive metal elements.[citation needed] The band's appearance shifted from a visual kei look to more normal clothing over the length of their career. In early work, Alice Nine's clothing in promotional footage and live concerts was a stylized take on traditional Japanese clothing, along with moderate makeup, piercings, and bright hair colors such as red and pale blonde. However, in 2006, the look began to fade out and essentially disappeared the year after, having been replaced with leather and the onset of street fashion, clothing that would appeal to popular culture. Music videos for "Blue Planet" and "Gekkou Yoku" show off a relaxed and casual look, while videos such as those for "Cosmic World" and "Rainbows" are examples of forays into street fashion. Members Shou (将?) – Lead vocals, leader As of January 2012, the position of band leader has been moved from Nao to Shou.[38] Hiroto (ヒロト?) – Guitars, backing vocals Also in the supergroup Karasu, that formed in 2009 with Tatsurou (Mucc), Mizuki (Sadie), Dunch (Jealkb) and Kenzo (Ayabie).[39] Tora (虎?) – Guitars, piano, backing vocals Also in the supergroup The Tokyo High Black as lead guitarist "Mon Marshy", with Saga as "Tomorrow Joe" and Musasaby (Nao from Kagrra,), Madao (Keiyu from Kra), Tako (Takuya from Administrator) and Gey (drums) Saga (沙我?) – Bass, vocals, synthesizers, keyboards Also in the supergroup The Tokyo High Black as rhythm guitarist "Tomorrow Joe", with Tora as "Mon Marshy".

THIS NEEDS TO KEEP GOING. Leading the fight is U S Marine Gunnery Sgt. Michael Burghardt, known as 'Iron Mike' or just 'Gunny'. He is on his third tour in Iraq. He had become a legend in the bomb disposal world after winning the Bronze Star for disa Read more ...
bling 64 IEDs and destroying 1,548 pieces of ordnance during his second tour. Then, on September 19, he got blown up. He had arrived at a chaotic scene after a bomb had killed four US Marines. He chose not to wear the bulky bomb protection suit. 'You can't react to any sniper fire and you get tunnel-vision,' he explains. So, protected by just a helmet and standard-issue flak jacket, he began what bomb disposal officers term 'the longest walk', stepping gingerly into a 5 foot deep and 8 foot wide crater. The earth shifted slightly and he saw a Senao base station with a wire leading from it. He cut the wire and used his 7 inch knife to probe the ground. 'I found a piece of red detonating cord between my legs,' he says. 'That's when I knew I was screwed.' Realizing he had been sucked into a trap, Sgt Burghardt, 35, yelled at everyone to stay back. At that moment, an insurgent, probably watching through binoculars, pressed a button on his mobile phone to detonate the secondary device below the sergeant's feet 'A chill went up the back of my neck and then the bomb exploded,' he recalls. 'As I was in the air I remember thinking, 'I don't believe they got me..' I was just ticked off they were able to do it. Then I was lying on the road, not able to feel anything from the waist down.' His fellow Marines cut off his trousers to see how badly he was hurt. None could believe his legs were still there 'My dad's a Vietnam vet who's paralyzed from the waist down,' says Sgt Burghardt. 'I was lying there thinking I didn't want to be in a wheelchair next to my dad and for him to see me like that. They started to cut away my pants and I felt a real sharp pain and blood trickling down. Then I wiggled my toes and I thought, 'Good, I'm in business.' As a stretcher was brought over, adrenaline and anger kicked in. 'I decided to walk to the helicopter. I wasn't going to let my team-mates see me being carried away on a stretcher.' He stood and gave the insurgents who had blown him up a one-fingered salute. ‘I flipped them one’. It was like, 'OK, I lost that round but I'll be back next week.' Copies of a photograph depicting his defiance, taken by Jeff Bundy for the Omaha World-Herald, adorn the walls of homes across America and that of Col John Gronski, the brigade commander in Ramadi, who has hailed the image as an exemplar of the warrior spirit. Sgt Burghardt's injuries - burns and wounds to his legs and buttocks - kept him off duty for nearly a month and could have earned him a ticket home. But, like his father - who was awarded a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts for being wounded in action in Vietnam - he stayed in Ramadi to engage in the battle against insurgents who are forever coming up with more ingenious ways of killing Americans.
