Disadvantag-ED

Bruce Kent   “Once to every man and nation comes the moment to decide; In the strife of Truth with Falsehood, for the good or evil side; Some great cause, God’s new Messiah, offering each the bloom or blight, Parts the goats upon the left hand and the sheep upon the right, And the choice […]
