mother, my own freaking mother cannot see attention to eyesight with me! How come go on? Why
didnt We die?
You killed blameless people. So did We. I burned bodies and whats worse, I

starts to tear up and shed control. )
Angelina Marquez stands up and says, Mrs. Kovic, you have to understand
what these males went through. They will killed and slaughtered innocent people.
Certainly they were preventing for us. Thats me and you simply, Mrs. Kovic. Our boys
fought for all of us and there is nothing that would make me happier than to have

kill millions of people simply to eat, then so whether it be. Our young boys are in
cant you be content about that by least? Cant you see that your kid put his
life on the line for you? I use lost my faith in Jesus and god. I use
realized that people live and die. You will discover no factors, they only happen.
Battles are battled because people disagree, not mainly because god told them to carry out
it. You need to understand that people have minds, and that life is not
given to all of us, or obtained from us, a lot more death. Being alive is to die, and to
die should be to re-grow because grass for the world. There may be nothing more than that

understand why I feel in this way. I feel in this way for the better of our
