We win!

To the monkeys it is no little thing!!!

What if you and your friends were being shipped off to be brutally experimented on in some lab. What if a group came to your aid and you got to live and not die piece by peace or go mad in isolation?

Alone, we can do almost nothing. Together We WIN, again and again and again, we WIN.

I'm proud to be with you, Rainbow Warriors.

Remember the victories. They are many.
