While some are ridiculing the possibility of a "Rapture" occurring there are some who are afraid. This message is for those who are, and it is nondenominational. I am not discriminatory of the Religious and/or Spiritual beliefs of others. They are personal to each and every individual on earth, and they are just as unique. 

I am empathetic to the fears that some people have about this subject, and I am hoping to be able to help you to come to the logical conclusion that your fears are unfounded, and discuss the issue if you feel the need.

When one thing ends, another begins. "The End" is nothing more than the beginning of something new.  We have been praying in our own ways for Peace for quite some time now. The end of Wars, suffering, strife, and abuses would be most welcome. Peace has been a long time in coming.

For Biblical believers.... there is told in your book of "Revelations" of a "New Earth," and "New Heavens." The description is incomplete, but it seems to be a promise of better things to come. The destruction has already happened with the people of earth, and the destruction of the "Evil One" is also promised. This should bring Peace to our earth, as the Demons shall be brought to bay with the promise of a new era.  Angels will ensure this, and our safety.

As a Parent I can guarantee that the, "144,000 followers from each of the 12 Tribes of Israel to be saved" was merely a way to instill fear, and obedience of the Laws. The Bible was not meant to be taken as literal, but as as a guide for better living, hence the inconsistencies. I would not destroy 2/3rds, (or more in this case) of my "Children" because they were naughty, and I do not see this as a possibility.  The threats in the Bible were in all probability not sent to you from God, but possibly were the works of the "Evil One," in disguise.

The occurrance of a "Rapture" means that evil has lost the battle. Everyone is "saved," not just a few. I embrace the idea of an "Evil World" ending, so that a "More Peaceful Existence" can begin. I have been encouraging it, nurturing it, and trying to create it for quite some time now. I am extremely grateful for the thousands of my fellow Pagans that have helped, and encouraged me. I am hopeful. 

It is time for the Spiders of the Cosmos to open the Web, and show us the "promise" of a new tomorrow, the "promise" of Peace.

Let the "Golden Era" begin.

Your friend in Peace,  

Electra

This is a post that I left on an Article dealing with the problems surrounding 'Child Molestation/Abuse. The link to the Article is included at the end!
Please go to 'feedback and suggestions and ask for a 'Click/Foundation' to help these families live!!!
Electra: (14 hours 21 minutes ago.)
"To ensure the safety of the Children this Crime must be reported! There is 'Victims Assistance" out there, but the only people that seem to know about it are the Criminals.
There was an Article on this out here, and that's how I heard of it.
I believe that the real "Victims" need to be informed of their options. It was found that the Criminals were filing for the assistance, but very few Victims were, or even had knowledge of it.
The Children should NEVER be allowed to be victimized again! That means in my opinion that No contact between them Can be made!
Victims should be allowed to remain anonymous to the Public! This includes the extended family!
Counselors should know about the assistance, and should be required to pass on this information!
I am surprised that large 'Foundations' do not do more on this subject.
Grants could be given to help the family get on their feet, and away from the offender, this should include other types of abuses!
No man is worth sacrificing your Children.
No offense intended to the decent men, and there are plenty of them!
(Find one!)
I can only hope that this is what the Author of this Article intended, and not the secrecy that was mentioned.
I believe that she was trying to bring this out in the open to help, and to get help for the Victims with proper Legislation. I hope that I am right!
Secrecy does a greater harm and injustice to the Children, and their families. It leaves them vulnerable to re-victimization, and THAT should Never happen!
I wish that I could do more!!!"

"Maples and elderberry are especially helpful at removing the effects of pollution. They are oxygenators. There are more. Water can be cleaned with bullrush, cattails, lotus, and it's either sweetflag or blueflag, one of them is good, the other is poisionous, so do the research first!" Some cherries, elderberries, and Maples can reduce Syanide in the soils. I've heard that a major problem with pollution is the syanide. Maples are excellent when planted close to water, as they will clean it and the soil all at the same time. Sago Palms are also good. It doesn't take long to do a search for plants to combat pollution, and it will help so many people in the long run. Please try it. Research the plants thoroughly so that you know how to handle them, plant them, etc... If they're poisonous to handle, find an alternative. There are plenty of them out there. Please think about this now, at planting time. Happy Spring!!! Have a Great weekend. Respectfully and sincerely, Electra

Well folks it's another day. If you haven't already signed this Petition then I strongly urge you to do so.
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/264941759
You will be helping Writers to keep on writing, Singers to keep on singing, and Artists of all kinds to keep on putting out their Wonderful Artwork.
You can help give us the ability to care for ourselves in our old age, to care for our Children now, and to get paid for our hard-earned work.
We don't have an I.R.A., Keogh, or Pension to fall back on. What we have is our skills, and our 'Works.'
We earn no Social Security Benefits on stolen works.
Make the Corporations hire Talent instead of Infringing on our Rights to make the big bucks! Thieves shouldn't be paid for their theft, it's a crime in all other areas of the Law.
The Statute of Limitations allows for the theft of our livelihood. Our Retirement. Our Respect. The food on our tables.
The Royalties from our 'Works' go to support ourselves and our families. Our Children should reap the rewards after we're gone, it's their Right. 
The Royalties shouldn't be handed over to an unscrupulous thief just because we didn't know that it was stolen in time to file a Lawsuit, or have the money at the time to defend it.
Give us back our dignity, now and in our old age. Give us back our Rights! Help us to support ourselves, put food on our tables, and clothe our children.
Help me to get rid of the 3-year Statute of Limitations and allow us the Freedoms promised us in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Allow us the freedom to create without fear, to care for our families, and to reap the rewards of a job well done.

Thank you and have a great day!

Thank you so much for your support! 
Hi, I'm proud to say that people are beginning to realize how important this Petition is.

We still need more signatures, but the outlook is getting better, and better!!!   

Have a great day! And         

Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene  

My Petition.

What I'm trying to do is help us keep the right to sue when our 'Copyrighted works' are stolen. They claim it's protected, but as you have mentioned, it's only protected if you are a Large Corporation with the money to back you up.

They seem to be the ones in control of this Issue,
and we lose our writings to them all the time. We should have the right to sue, but our Government backs the big Corporations, not us.

They are the ones that snuck in the 'Sonny Bono Act' 
That Act should have been appealed,repealed and thrown it the trash!

This Petition is not about that.  It's an attempt to give the 'Starving Artists' the same Rights as the Rich.
'The Right to sue' when our property is stolen and used, by them.

It happens more often than people think that it does.

The Internet makes it easier to hide the theft.
The Internet is World-wide. What's to stop someone from taking articles from one Country and selling them in their location? They could merely change the beginning, change the Title, and disguise it as their own. If the language was changed you would probably never find out.

A lot of people are assuming that the thief would Publish on the net. Not likely. They would want to hide it and their money earned as far out of sight as possible. You may never find out that it was stolen, even as your sales drop off. If you were lucky enough to get that far with it.

Whole books, and works of art can be copied and sold without the true owners permission or knowledge. World-wide sales of your 'article' would drop as common usage before you would ever find out that it was stolen.

Thank you for your time and consideration, and have a great day!

Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene 

Please help to restore our Copyright Protections.

Hi, to all of you that have encouraged me with this Petition, I thank  you. I am trying really hard to get this Petition signed.

It's important not only to me, but to all of the other Artists that have gotten ripped off in the past, and the one that don't yet know that they are going to be ripped off.

If we allow this law to remain unchanged there will more than likely be future victims.

Writers, Artists, etc... are vulnerable, especially now that they can post their 'works' on the net. Most of them do not believe that anyone would do such a thing as to rip them off.

The ones that I talked to that were ripped off still find it hard to believe that it happened to them. We are a trusting breed. Just look around at how many young writers are posting, should this be their future. An adult shouldn't have to deal with it.

Our 'works' are our livelihood. We spend months at a time, and sometimes years perfecting it. Why should we only have a 3-year umbrella?

That's time enough to hide evidence, or shred it. Because of the Internet, it can now be stolen and hidden anywhere in the World. It can be hidden long enough to take away our RIGHT to sue for Infringement.

Attorneys need time to collect and review evidence. They have to have 'Depositions' taken. They need time to serve subpoenas to witnesses and to subpoena records, etc... How can we expect to find Representation with the clock ticking so quickly?

We were led to believe that we had 70 years, not just three. Our children are supposed to be able to inherit our Royalties, as other's children inherit an Estate, Trust fund, or any other means that we have to care for our children after we're gone.

Three years is just simply not enough time, too many things can happen. Help to restore the Copyright Protections that we were promised in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Laws pertaining to this right.

I want to plant trees and grass on the playgrounds in the poor areas of town, we only had sand to play in. I can't afford to.

I was dream of buying up blankets in the winter and distributing them, it gets cold here. Warm meals, I can't give them.

I grew up poor. I've been through some of the same things as a lot of the people on the streets. They don't scare me, I've talked to them and I've helped them in the few ways that I can.

I want to start an Orchard, I already have the trees in buckets. It's like the ripple-effect, but using a river. The giving and the care lands on banks clear down stream. I have friends I will never see again due to Domestic violence. Children that grew up too soon, old and bitter at a ripe young age.

I want to feel free to write, without the fear that it could be stolen and used without my knowledge, and with no fear on their part of repercussions.
Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene

Discouraged!!!
This site claims to have over a million people on it. More than 7000 in my network alone. My Petition has been averaging 10 signatures a day. Civil Rights don't seem to be much of a priority these days. The Government takes them away as they see fit, and everyone sits back and allows it to happen, they only get upset if it affects them personally. Where's the Justice going to come from if not from the people?
Congress could care less. They're probably getting a kick out of watching me fail, so are the Infringers. The large Corporations are going to keep getting richer at the expense of the little guy. Our art, writings, etc... are up for grabs. The lack of signatures and enthusiasm on this subject are appalling. Why don't we just let them take all of our Rights and see who cares then.
Who cares that someone elses rights are being trod upon and then taken away, right?
I've estimated that in order to get the amount of signatures that I felt that I needed to get this through Congress it would take approximately 95.75 years or more at this rate. I'm determined to get signatures. I've worked hard on this! I researched the Laws for Christs sake, and I have made no difference because of the indifferece of the masses. Why should I bother with this Issue anymore? No one really cares if someone gets ripped off, what matters is that it didn't happen to them.
Every time I believe that things are picking up they come to a screaching halt. It's more than a little bit discouraging, it's heartbreaking. I expected more support on this. I should've just sat back and complained about it. It would've gotten more attention that way, instead I stupidly set out to try to change things. To make a real difference. To make things right.
It's practically the same thing as somebody breaking into your home while you're away and taking whatever they want, except that what they're stealing with Infringement is a part of your very soul. The essence of your existence. Your job, your livelihood, the reason that God put you on this earth for.
I guess the joke is on me, huh?
Let them win. Let them take away our creative ambition, but don't complain when the Writers stop writing, Artists, stop painting,etc... No pictures. No Movies. No Books. No Games. No 'Art' of any kind, where's the entertainment going to come from then?
All of us are affected by it, but no one dare try to save it, all you'll get is opposition.
Next time you watch a movie, play a game, hear a beautiful song, remember the people that made it possible. They're the ones who are getting screwed!
Thank you for those of you who have cared enough to sign.
Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene

I'm trying to do a GOOD thing here. 9:57 PM
Our Civil rights are at stake. If we let them get away with taking just one of them, what's to stop them from taking away the rest?

This concerns everybody, or at least it should. Our Government slips Laws and Statutes in behind our backs all of the time. Here we have a chance to actually do something about it, sign a Petition to save this Right!

The way our Rights keep getting taken away from us without a voice, without a chance, that's evil.

Why would you personally want to give up one of our Rights? Why not help me fight for this?

If this Right isn't important to you, what Right are you going to get taken away from you that no one will concern themselves with?

It could happen, and as far as I can see with this Administration, it could be sooner than you think!

     Help me to get rid of the 3-year Statute of Limitations on Copyrights!

We, the Undersigned, endorse the following petition:
Copyright - Get Rid of the 3-year Statute of Limitations
Target: Congress
Our 'Protected Rights' are supposed to be for 70 years after our death, they have drastically reduced this to a mere 3 years, and that's only if we catch someone stealing our writings, art, etc..., in time to file a Lawsuit.

The STATUTE of LIMITATIONS has no place in our society as it promotes Infringement, and proves that our Laws don't work for US.

Please help to restore our Copyright Protections to, 
"70 years past Death, not 3 years past theft"

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Remember to add your home address, as it may be required to get this through Congress.
