ViZion Sends Aid Workers!
Hundreds of aid workers from the nation of ViZion, by way of the International Medical Foundation, have begun pouring through Paradise International Airport, and off into the backlands, seeking to assist the people of the region to combat disease, and also to cope with the ongoing rebellions that have been ravaging the area. The city of Belltower, long an area very few would even dare to venture into, has become, as of late, a safe haven in the jungle, all thanks to the doctors and peace keepers from that land so far away. Thank you ViZion! More on page 3…

Letter from a 7th Grader

Dear Mr. Griffincrest,

Come take a walk with me.
Let's pretend we're just two people and
You're not better than me.
I'd like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly.

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?
