We live in an interesting time. Whether it turns out to be a curse or a blessing depends on us. As you may have heard, today is a special day—Rapture Day. This is the day the chosen are lifted from Earth, from this life, to go to an afterlife in a faraway place of peace and plenty to live in loving relationship free from hunger, want, disease and violence. A beautiful vision.
