    Lost my mom when I was 5 yrs old and hardly knew my father. Being the youngest of 7 brothers and six sisters, and under the care of my second oldest sister. Spent 30 years in the military traveling to 20 foreign counties of the world. Many times I should have died and never knew the reason why I am still living. after 30 years in the military and 20 years in civil service. Today I have no doubt that I have been moved to share with others what others need to understand that we are all children of our Almighty God. Having no religious it hurts when I hear of religious fighting each other which is nothing new for it has been that way before the creation of the world. It’s not only happening in Israel but over 60 foreign countries of the world. I was born in Hawaii, spent 50 years away and now made it my permanent home of residence. Hawaii is made up of every nationality in the world. You name it and we have it. Religion? It’s unbelievable,the few are Buddha, Jewish, and even Muslim. We need to understand there will be anger, prejudice, greediness, because we have all sinned. But remember no matter what we all think we are still all God’s children. My prayers will be for both sides but only Our All Mighty God can heal his loving children. Lovingly in Christ Jesus, Brother K
