"As the exhausted men marched forward, their cadence grown dissonant, they knew their inevitable fate. The snow, juxtaposing pure innoce with undying hatred, swirled around them surreally. It glistened and sparkled against the backdrop of the foreboding war clouds. Slowly, the men came to a halt and sighed heavily as they hoisted their well-used muskets. Collectively, they awaited the bark of an order from their enlightened superior. As the order came, a thunderous drum roll of muskets occurred as the realization of the order rippled through their ranks. Dawning on all present was the second realization of what was being done. This was the last stand. Soon the roar of muskets was returned, followed by the whistle of lead balls, and finally the grunts of tired, aged men soaking the innocent snow with red as yet more snow quickly covered the bodies." - Ethan Lee Vita

"No government on earth can make men who have realized freedom in their hearts salute against their will." - Mahatma Gandhi

"A reformer has to sail not with the current. Very often he has to go against it even though it may cost him his life." - Mahatma Gandhi

"The American police are involved in a psychological warfare against those Americans who don't firghten them with imposing papers and threats.
