    I do not know where to start. I am sure many of us are going to die with this abuse of our innocence and childhood happiness. How can anyone put a price on that? Forwarder more how can it be stopped? It is no holiness nor honesty in this organization. Dig deep and you find that it is in the DNA of this institution to explore the mineral resources, to rape the innocent and take the know-how and labor for free. In name of God.
