This unprecedented experience that is touching all human beings throughout the planet is bringing humanity together again. Human being are being human again and most will say that it's way overdue. May be it's just the right time. The lesson is most certainly going to be a tough and painful one but it sure is going to change the world as we know it.

Apart from prayer we have no option but to stand in unity in a common consciousness. Never in the history of humanity has this been sort or achieved. A truly mind boggling reality is coming to pass in our lifetime. We are the world, we are the children and together and only together can we overcome this. Was this ever even thought possible? Well here we go! We are doing this.... Together!
