    Even without watching the movie clips in the video, I still cry every time I hear this song. Wow.

    Today is Good Friday. No mother should have to watch her child suffer and die. But she did. And He did. The flashback scene of Mary in The Passion of the Christ is my favorite. Set to this music makes me weep even more:

      Wow…wow… My waterproof mascara is not so waterproof….

      • For me this more important to remember than a lot of other things. if you are longing for friendship, look no further than those brothers and sisters in Christ that will be there for you when all else is against you. The apostles had that awesome unity you can be only find in Christ and that is “Truth” of the greatest kind that can be found nowhere else in the world. yet like the apostles even though you may be nations apart that unity remained their greatest strenght.
        18 If the world hates you, you must realise that it hated me before it hated you.19 If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you do not belong to the world, because my choice of you has drawn you out of the world, that is why the world hates you.

      The flying wing has been a popular design for a while. This one got held up during WW2.

      Without knowing it’s altitude it’s hard to guess the size. Plus, the distance could account for the silence. Do drones create contrails?

      • There are a few US drones with delta-wing planforms similar to that, and I think they’re twin jet design, so they would leave those contrails. The silence is a curious thing to point out, since all high-altitude aircraft are silent, as you say.

        The problem is that no drones or B-2 has a straight trailing edge like these photos. I think that’s why they are speculating that it might be some kind of new aircraft that’s not in the open inventory. If it’s really a black project, why would they be flying them in broad daylight? Maybe the “cloaking device” had a glitch while these pics were taken. 😉

    Since Connect for Health Colorado (our part of Obamacare thanks to Amy Stevens, pfffft) is not self-sustaining, people are now proposing a “fee” be imposed on all Coloradans with health insurance to subsidize it, because…”everyone saves money in the long run if more people get insurance.” If that is being said here it is likely to be proposed elsewhere.

  4. Threatening note found on Delta flight, which is now being searched in a remote location of the Denver Int’l Airport. I hope it’s not a nuke. That would ruin our Good Friday.
