I guess that saving trees would be on a case by case basis.....all trees have their own problems.....etc.

Friends,

This is what the corrupt and wicked system of dirty money and wrong living hood is doing all over the world.

It is a shame that someone kill a disciple of The Lord, a being that intent only to benefit others.

I'm horrified, this kind of information make rise the most disgust feelings in me.

Some beings can be very ignorant to do that kind of action.


May all have peace.
