Only 70 years ago…
” Only 70 years ago” by Human Relationships is dedicated to the Victory on the fascism. We will include historical facts, photos and videos. Big thanks to all veterans and family members of the WWII!!!
In this Article we would like to remind ourselves, Humans, about those times, when an evil took over the World. How many lives has been lost and how many tears were cried out! Almost every family lost someone during the war.
This year 2015 will be 70 years ago….
Separately from veterans, we would like to give knowledge the the young people, teens and kids from all over the World about our history, and what it means to everyone! It was a very happy day to all Humans! Everyone celebrated the victory over a long war, that took away many lives.
“ISIS”, something that calls themselves terror group or organization, must be stop ASAP!
Please don’t support them, and everybody should acknowledge the facts and the tragedy that could occur from “ISIS”.
We must understand that there will be no future for us and our kids. 70 years ago Nazi was fighting having the best army guns, best planes, best ships. But in our times, we have better army, better planes, better ships….
But we don’t have the knowledge how great their ships and planes are. Plus, they could attack from the back! We are so unprepared!
We only have an Internet!
An internet became one of the biggest army weapons for social media and networking. It could be the most powerful than any explosives right now, because “ISIS” recruits people online, they are building Empire from those people, who hate Jewish nation. They convincing young people about great future after!
So, before you will believe or hear about it from someone close to you, or inviting you to join the club, please think twice and please read about history of Humanity. For everyone else, who will get an invitation to join, we highly recommend to contact the authorities or local police. We need to stop them, before it will spread into the WWIII!
Let’s share this post and try to prevent World from possible second Nazi!
Only 70 years ago, 85 million dead, because someone promised a great future….
The World War II was the most widespread and deadliest war in history, involving more than 30 countries and resulting in more than 50 million military and civilian deaths (with some estimates as high as 85 million dead). Sparked by Adolf Hitler’s invasion of Poland in 1939, the war would drag on for six deadly years until the last Allied defeat of both Nazi Germany and Japan in 1945.
20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945)
An Austrian born German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party National Socialist German Workers Party. He was chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and dictator of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. Hitler was at the centre of Nazi Germany, World War II in Europe, and the Holocaust.
To avoid being arrested for evading military service in Austria-Hungary, Adolf Hitler left Vienna for Munich in May 1913 but was forced to return, then he failed the physical. He volunteered for the Bavarian army the following year and served during all of World War I on the Western Front.
He joined the German Workers’ Party in 1919, and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923, he attempted a coup in Munich to seize power. The failed coup resulted in Hitler‘s imprisonment, during which time he wrote his memoir, Mein Kampf (My Struggle). After his release in 1924, Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promoting Pan-Germanism, antisemitism, and anti-communism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler often denounced international capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewish conspiracy.
Hitler‘s Nazi Party became the largest elected party in the German Reichstag, leading to his appointment as chancellor in 1933. Following fresh elections won by his coalition, the Reichstag passed the Enabling Act, which began the process of transforming the Weimar Republic into the Third Reich, a single-party dictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology of National Socialism. Hitler aimed to destroy Jews from Germany and set up a New Order to counter what he saw as the injustice of the post–World War I international order dominated by Britain and France. His first six years in power resulted in rapid economic recovery from the Great Depression, restrictions imposed on Germany after World War I, territories that were homes to millions of ethnic Germans – actions, which gave him significant popular support. His aggressive foreign policy is considered to be the primary cause of the outbreak of World War II in Europe.
He directed large-scale rearmament and on 1 September 1939 invaded Poland, resulting in British and French declarations of war on Germany. In June 1941, Hitler ordered an invasion of the Soviet Union. By the end of 1941 German forces and their European Allies occupied most of Europe and North Africa. Failure to defeat the Soviets and the entry of the United States into the war forced Germany onto the defensive and it suffered a series of escalating defeats. In the last days of the war, during the Battle of Berlin in 1945, Hitler married his long-time lover, Eva Braun. On 30 April 1945, less than two days later, the two committed suicide to avoid capture by the Red Army, and their corpses were burned.
Under Hitler‘s leadership and racially motivated ideology, the Nazi regime was responsible for the genocide of at least 5.5 million Jews and millions of other victims whom he and his followers deemed racially inferior. Hitler and the Nazi regime were also responsible for the killing of an estimated 19.3 million civilians and prisoners of war. In addition, 29 million soldiers and civilians died as a result of military action in the European Theatre of World War II. The number of civilians killed during the Second World War was unprecedented in the history of warfare.
In late August 1939, Hitler and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin signed the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact, which incited a frenzy of worry in London and Paris. Hitler had long-planned attack on Poland, a nation to which Great Britain and France had guaranteed military support if it was attacked by Germany. The pact with Stalin meant that Hitler would not face a war on two fronts once he invaded Poland, and would have Soviet help in conquering and dividing the nation itself. On September 1, 1939, Hitler invaded Poland from the west; two days later, France and Britain declared war on Germany, beginning World War II.
On September 17, Soviet troops invaded Poland from the east. Under attack from both sides, Poland fell quickly, and by early 1940 Germany and the Soviet Union had divided control over the nation, according to a secret protocol appended to the Nonaggression Pact. Stalin’s forces moved to occupy the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) and defeated a resistant Finland in the Russo-Finnish War.
At sea, however, the British and German navies faced off in heated battle, and lethal German U-boat submarines struck at merchant shipping bound for Britain, sinking more than 100 vessels in the first four months of World War II.
On April 9, 1940, German occupied Denmark, Norway and the war began in earnest. On May 10, 1940, Belgium and the Netherlands. Three days later, Hitler’s troops crossed the Meuse River and struck French forces at Sedan, located at the northern end of the Maginot Line, an elaborate chain of fortifications constructed after World War I and considered an impenetrable defensive barrier. In fact, the Germans broke through the line with their tanks and planes and continued to the rear, rendering it useless.
The British Expeditionary Force (BEF) was evacuated by sea from Dunkirk in late May, while in the south French forces mounted a doomed resistance. With France on the verge of collapse, Benito Mussolini of Italy put his Pact of Steel with Hitler into action, and Italy declared war against France and Britain on June 10.
On June 14, German forces entered Paris; a new government formed by Marshal Philippe Petain (France’s hero of World War I) requested an armistice two nights later. France was divided into two zones, one under German military occupation and the other under Petain’s government, installed at Vichy. Hitler now turned his attention to Britain, which had the defensive advantage of being separated from the Continent by the English Channel.
To pave the way for an amphibious invasion (dubbed Operation Sea Lion), German planes bombed Britain extensively throughout the summer of 1940, including night raids on London and other industrial centers that caused heavy civilian casualties and damage. The Royal Air Force (RAF) eventually defeated the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) in the Battle of Britain, and Hitler postponed his plans to invade. With Britain’s defensive resources pushed to the limit, Prime Minister Winston Churchill began receiving crucial aid from the U.S. under the Lend-Lease Act, passed by Congress in early 1941.
By early 1941, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria had joined the Axis, and German troops overran Yugoslavia and Greece that April. Hitler’s conquest of the Balkans was a precursor for his real goal: The Soviet Union, whose vast territory would give the German master race the “Lebensraum” it needed. The other half of Hitler’s strategy was the extermination of the Jews from throughout German-occupied Europe. Plans for the “Final Solution” were introduced around the time of the Soviet offensive, and over the next three years more than 4 million Jews would perish in the death camps established in occupied Poland.
On June 22, 1941, Hitler created Operation Barbarossa. Though Soviet tanks and aircraft greatly outnumbered the Germans, their air technology was largely obsolete, and the impact of the surprise invasion helped Germans get within 200 miles of Moscow by mid-July. Arguments between Hitler and his commanders delayed the next German advance until October, when it was stalled by a Soviet counter offensive and the onset of harsh winter weather.
On December 7, 1941, 360 Japanese aircraft attacked the major U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, taking the Americans completely by surprise and claiming the lives of more than 2,300 troops. The attack on Pearl Harbor served to unify American public opinion in favor of entering World War II, and on December 8 Congress declared war on Japan with only one dissenting vote. Germany and the other Axis Powers promptly declared war on the United States.
After a long string of Japanese victories, the U.S. Pacific Fleet won the Battle of Midway in June 1942, which was a turning point in the war. On Guadalcanal, one of the southern Solomon Islands, the Allies also had success against Japanese forces in a series of battles from August 1942 to February 1943, helping turn the tide further in the Pacific. In mid-1943, Allied naval forces began an aggressive counter attack against Japan, involving a series of amphibious assaults on key Japanese-held islands in the Pacific. This “island-hopping” strategy proved successful, and Allied forces moved closer to their ultimate goal of invading the Japanese homeland.
In North Africa, British and American forces had defeated the Italians and Germans by 1943. An Allied invasion of Sicily and Italy followed, and Mussolini’s government fell in July 1943, though Allied fighting against the Germans in Italy would continue until 1945.
On World War II’s Eastern Front, a Soviet counteroffensive launched in November 1942 ended the bloody Battle of Stalingrad, which had seen some of the fiercest combat of the war. The approach of winter, along with dwindling food and medical supplies, spelled the end for German troops there, and the last of them surrendered on January 31, 1943.
On June 6, 1944–celebrated as “D-Day”–the Allied began a massive invasion of Europe, landing 156,000 British, Canadian and American soldiers on the beaches of Normandy, France. In response, Hitler poured all the remaining strength of his army into Western Europe, ensuring Germany’s defeat in the east. Soviet troops soon advanced into Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Romania, while Hitler gathered his forces to drive the Americans and British back from Germany in the Battle of the Bulge (December 1944-January 1945), the last major German offensive of the war. An intensive aerial bombardment in February 1945 preceded the Allied land invasion of Germany, and by the time Germany formally surrendered on May 8, Soviet forces had occupied much of the country.
Hitler was already dead, having committed suicide on April 30 in his Berlin bunker.
At the Potsdam Conference of July to August 1945, U.S. President Harry S. Truman (who had taken office after Roosevelt’s death in April), Churchill and Stalin discussed the ongoing war with Japan as well as the peace settlement with Germany. Post-war Germany would be divided into four occupation zones, to be controlled by the Soviet Union, Britain, the United States and France.
On the divisive matter of Eastern Europe’s future, Churchill and Truman acquiesced to Stalin, as they needed Soviet cooperation in the war against Japan. Heavy casualties sustained in the campaigns at Iwo Jima (February 1945) and Okinawa (April-June 1945), and fears of the even costlier land invasion of Japan led Truman to authorize the use of a new and devastating weapon–the atomic bomb–on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in early August.
On August 10, the Japanese government issued a statement declaring they would accept the terms of the Potsdam Declaration, and on September 2, U.S. General Douglas MacArthur accepted Japan’s formal surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.
World War II proved to be the most devastating international conflict in history, taking the lives of some 35 to 60 million people, including 6 million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis. Millions more were injured, and still more lost their homes and property. The legacy of the war would include the spread of communism from the Soviet Union into eastern Europe as well as its eventual triumph in China, and the global shift in power from Europe to two rival superpowers–the United States and the Soviet Union–that would soon face off against each other in the Cold War.

Blame is the act of censuring, holding responsible, making negative statements about an individual or group that their action or actions are socially or morally irresponsible.
Being blamed for everything, is called an abuse.
The reason I am saying abuse, because when a person gets to be blamed for everything, it’s becomes almost like sickness and aggression towards each other!
Very good article to read: “Blaming Justifies Your Own Bad Behavior” for those who is involved or around people with angerness and abusement at home or surrounded by others.
By trying to protect our personalities, we become wild, unbalanced and most likely stressed out. Many different health problems could accumulate from that kind of behaviour!
Blaming someone for not being successful in life is very typical for most Humans. In the beginning, in school years, there is always one bad teacher, who we blame for not passing the class, or one bad kid, who makes school years hard and frustrated.
Later in life we meet many different nations, people, bosses, who are putting us down and blaming for mistakes we make.
It’s almost like a cycle in life and I am pretty sure that almost everyone has to defend their big ” I am”, just to look better.
Previously I mentioned that Humans are made of the body and soul, and ” I am” is our body. When people die, they lose their body, and their souls, doesn’t have any understanding of who: “I am”!? This is why, we are Humans, afraid to die, because we lose our physical presence.
In more simple words, it’s our ego, our physical appearance and we have no clue yet what it can do without body.
When we blaming someone, we protect our body, but we don’t do any good for our soul.
The soul, in many religious, philosophical and mythological traditions, is the incorporeal and, in many conceptions, immortal essence of a living thing, meaning that our back conscious knows more truth, than our ego “I am”.
Simple, but yet very powerful words, are the key to kill our inspiration, success and support. It’s not the right way to continue our existence. Let’s talk about communication and we will see how different the life can be!
A person can say to another person: ” I hate you”, they could become the best friends for life.
Another example is when a partner says: “I love you, man, you are great”, and another person feels being hated from their tone.
Ladies and gentlemen, please respect each other!
Words are very important, and listening the tone of those voices, and try to understand each other. Support your significant other, because it’s important to have a peace of mind!

This little poem makes no sense but for some people it will make a lot of sense.
Watching news is very depressing and one of the most upsetting stories is how fast growing social networks for ISIS terror organizations. Girls and boys are getting recruited over the Internet, promising sweet chocolates and amazing “heaven” with 50 virgins waiting for them. I want to spread the words to every girl and boy, all teenagers, all adults and to the World,… they are lying!
There is no 50 virgins, not in this World, not in any World! Get over it!
For sure, there is no heaven for people, who has blood on their hands!
So, please be careful to whom you make a reply online and don’t listen to sweet stories about how great this World is going to be, when other nations will be destroyed!
Terror will bring blood, hate and hunger to many innocent people, and if they will try to kill other nations, they will kill you! Not because you did not do what they asked, but because they are killers. Hard, cold blooded, worst than any wild animal, hungry for blood!
The history is trying to repeat itself, and it’s only up to us( Humans) to stop it. In the memory to all those, who lost their lives during WWII, don’t ignore this problem!
I decided to take a chance, and maybe all of you, who is reading and visiting Human Relationships blog, will support my words, and share with the young kids and the rest of the World!
By standing together against ISIS crimes, we will be one step ahead!
Also for the parents, please watch kids activities online! It’s getting just as dangerous as outside!
Long across the ocean line,
In between two worlds, us,
Cities, laying next to sand,
We are happy at the end!
When we see the “Hell” and “Heaven”,
They competing with each other,
Value souls and feeling bodies,
Makes us stronger, humans, touchy!
Giving strength, support and love,
Sending messages to us,
Bringing message in the rounds,
Circle us, and our minds!
I believe success is nearly,
Walking slowly next to me,
And support my, growing stronger,
Makes me feel myself, again!
Thank you, dear, I am your slave!
Thank you for believe in me,
Let me listen, when is needed,
Make me be your messenger!
Making peace across the World,
Stop to “wars”, destroy “terror”!
Let them all die by themselves,
Just include us in the “pray!”
Nazi, terror, hate and blood,
Leave together! Let them die!
There is no religions “bad”!
Humans “bad”, they lost their ends!
Let us pray together loud,
Give us strength to smile loud,
Building World, building life,
Take away the endless fights!

Tired, feeling dirty and exhausted after returning from a three days trip, finally was letting me know that it’s a good time to go to sleep and forget about everything that just happened. I had no more powers in me to move my arms or legs. My thoughts were too tired to even create any good idea or memory from the past.
Pulling out my keys, I decides to check for mail in my mail box. Pulling out pretty big stack of letters, I quickly browsed through them, when my eyes got caught on the big , fat envelope. The letter to me? I know this handwriting, it’s reminded me of someone, but the address was unfamiliar. As I opened the envelope, I pulled out the pictures from the passed summer. Me and my brother, with my dad and his family, and my school mate friend came to visit me as well. What is this? Who is it from?
When my eyes started to follow the words on the paper, I stopped in shock. It’s like a joke the life is playing with me! How is it possible? Who could play such a horrible joke on me? And then I realized, I have not been home in three days, the mail must have been here for couple days already. He must have wrote this letter just before we got to him. My eyes filled up with tears trying to recover the whole trip with all the consequences, that happened.
Five days ago, happened to be my birthday. While celebrating with a good circle of friends, looking like a super star, I was getting buzzed from drinking and dancing! My boyfriend was next to me, and I couldn’t be more happier. Suddenly, I received a phone call from my dad, and in the best mood ever I answered it right away.
“I want to wish you a happy birthday and always enjoy this day as much as you can! I love you very much, but I really don’t know if I will ever see you again!”
What do you mean dad, I responded as happy as I could, while my heart just dropped all the way down, on the floor. I will see you very soon, I reply. You will come to see me on the holidays, right?
“I am afraid that I will not live till the holidays, I am in the hospital now, and I don’t want to die, without seeing you!”\
What? Why hospital? What happened? I yelled loud, but all I heard was the busy signals. The phone call was dropped and my hands were shacking.
My party was over! I packed my cloths into backpack, called the bus station to find out times for next bus schedule, going to New York City. All my thoughts were about making it on time! I had no clue why he was in the hospital, but by his words I knew that something is terrible wrong. He was never a drama man, and he never complain about being sick or hurt. His sense of humor was above any problems he ever had, as we were growing up, not once I saw him either sad or mad!
When bus pulled up in Manhattan Union Station, I saw my brother waiving me! I jumped in his car, and he started driving, fast and dangerous throughout huge traffic and small streets, as a short cuts. I was afraid to ask. Now, I really saw big trouble, I was feeling that we are not making it!
My heart pounded so loud, when I walked in his room. The hospital was overfilled with people and relatives. All those doctors were running across hallways, some visitors were praying, some were crying. His room had 6 more patients with all kinds of problems. At first, I didn’t recognized him. I never saw him looking so white, and so sick. When I came closer to his bed, I was told that his is in comma for 2 days now. The monitors were showing his heart beat, trying to hold on for a little longer.
I took his hand in mine, and slowly started talking to him. I wanted him to hear me, to talk to me back! I wanted him to laugh and open his eyes.
“I am here, dad! I told you we will see each other soon! I am here next to you! Everything will be fine! I love you very much and I need you now like never! I got a boyfriend, dad! I am in love! I am adult now, dad! Do you hear me? Wake up, dad!!!”
The expression on his face started to change! I was sure that he is ready to wake up, when I heard the beep from the heart machine slowly started to beep one long sound! My ears stopped hearing anything around.
I got thrown away by the doctors, who started to massage his heart very abrasively:” One, two, tree, bzzzz; again, one, two, three, bzzzz; again, one, two, three, bzzzz”….. and everything stopped. Quiet two seconds lasted the century…
” He is gone!”- the doctor replied, ” we did everything possible, sorry for your lost, you can pick up your body anytime tomorrow”!
I remember myself sitting in the hallway on the floor of the hospital, when some lady doctor came to me and ask if I need anything, when my word could only say ” I need my dad back, can you do it?!”
All those memories came back, when I was reading that letter from my dad. He came back from comma first time, when he asked for a pen and paper. The words were very uneven, traveling on the paper all across different lines, but I could still clearly read and understand what he had to say to me!
He died on my eyes, he waited for me to come, so he can die freely, and three days later he asked me for his forgiveness!
It’s not only changed my life, it’s changed my future! The letter he addressed to me, written prior him passing away, and receiving it right after me loosing him, made me believe in G-d stronger than ever.
“Once upon the time, there was a very poor young man, who wanted to marry one girl, whose parents were very rich and known in their community. Many boys tried to marry their daughter, but the father would always decline their offers, due to their status and capitals they own.
This young man was so poor, that he didn’t even had a good cloths to come and meet the family. After many long nights of thinking, he asked his friend to call one of the biggest banks in the city, asking for hiring young man for an executive position, claiming to be a husband of that rich girl. When the manager of the bank heard the family name, he hired the boy on the spot. Young man worked very good, he was extremely smart, and in one month he made enough money to come and meet the girl.
When he called the parents and asked for permission to marry their daughter, the first question was about his position and status. When the father heard about his high status in bank, he allowed this marriage to happen.”
The moral in this story is very simple, if you really want to succeed in life, don’t just wait for it to happen! G-d gives us chances, but we need to acknowledge them, and take the first step forward!

One of my favorite movies made by Robin Williams:
An unforgettable role was done by Robin Williams in this movie, played as a robot, who falls in love with human girl, who becomes a woman and keeps on getting older, while a robot still stays young and lives forever!
Dramatic love leans him to become a human! His will was to die along with her, becomes true!
If for some reason you never watched this movie, I highly recommend to watch on the brilliant movie played by Robin Williams!

Scientists have been searching for answers to why this vast water supply left the surface. Details of the observations and computations appear in Thursday’s edition of Science magazine.
“Our study provides a solid estimate of how much water Mars once had, by determining how much water was lost to space,” said Geronimo Villanueva, a scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and lead author of the new paper. “With this work, we can better understand the history of water on Mars.”

True story dedicated to my memories…
In memories to a very good friend, who got in trouble with a law to protect her husband…
It was an amazing night, when all girls got together to practice their beauty projects. Coloring hair, practicing makeup application, taking a good care of nails and drinking slowly red wine. Laughing out loud, we finally realized that we run out of hair color and it was not enough to finish one of the girl’s hair.
Walgreen was two blocks away, and one of the girls decided to drive to the store. That should have been 10 min run, but after 30 minutes she wasn’t back. We tried calling her, but her phone rung on the table next to us, she must have forgot it. We decided to give her 10 more minutes, and drive after her. Something must have happened. She had a half of a small glass of wine,but it wasn’t enough to get in trouble.
Getting closer to the parking lot of Walgreen’s, I saw police cars around her car. I walked to the police officer, requiring on the information. he replied to me that the girl scratched another car and she doesn’t have a driver’s licences.
“That’s impossible!”, I said quietly, ” how big is the damage on the other car?”, – I asked officer again.
“Nothing, not even noticeable, the guy wants to claim insurance, saying that your friend did that”, he pointed on the old scratch, “but we are not fools”. His voice was telling me to take the girl home. I gave him my licence, he made a report, releasing the girl.
In the car, driving home she told me that she illegal in the country, that’s why she doesn’t have a licence. If she would get arrested, she would be deported. Scary, but the truth.
We celebrated happy ending and were glad that she was home with us!
We became friends, very close friends. Her husband was related to my husband, which made us a family.
Between New York city and Pennsylvania cities was 1 hour and 20 minutes drive. For me it’s not a distance if I was willing to see my friend.
Getting ready to leave the house, making big plans for that day to walk in Manhattan, go to the beach and see fireworks, we got in the car, not yet knowing the outcome for that day. Not knowing that it will take us 4 days to get home, and the drama we would be involved in….
When we parked the car next to her house, her husband ran to us, screaming: “She is arrested! Please help!”
He was pointing his fingers to the direction where she was sitting in the police car, and crying. Slowly the car started to drive away in the unknown direction.
We stood in the middle of road, watching her disappear.
Later that day, he told us what happened, and how she saved him from going to jail, and covering all his bad sins.
” We got pulled over for speed, and police officer asked to open the trunk of the car. I got a small gun in my trunk, and some other illegal stuff. If they would digg, I could go to jail for life. I jumped out of the car and ran, hiding inside of someone’s building. She got in the driver’s seat, and when police came to her, he realized that she wasn’t the one driving. She refused to tell the name of the person who owned that car, and he asked her nicely to re-park the car. When she drove 2 feet away, he stopped her and arrested for driving without a license. Also, she was charged with possession of everything that was in that car and was sent to the State Jail on the Federal charges.”
His story was short and very self explanatory, no questions were asked. What was the illegal stuff in his car, I didn’t care.
“Asshole”, – I said out loud, and thinking to myself “She is going through hell now for that asshole!”.
Knowing, that she was illegal to be in this country because of him, it could cause her everything.
She stood behind his back 100%, and she would fight to the end for him. Was he worth it? Yes, and No!
He was a coward in my eyes, and he betrayed her all the time, but this situation was the worst of all. She followed him everywhere.
What amazed me the most, is her love towards him.
She loved him so strongly, that she was willing to suffer and gave up her future for him. Would he do the same? Doubt, but who am I to judge!?
Spending 4 hours on the phone, searching where she was taken, I found out that her bail bond was set for the round number of 5K.
My biggest fear was that her bail bond will not be given, due to her immigration status. I was glad to know that she could walk home tonight. Of course 5K was almost impossible to pull through at that time, but when we contacted all their relatives, and friends, we had enough to bail her out, but first we had to go out of state to pick up couple envelops from his relatives.
Driving back into the city of New York at 4 am next day. Tired, hungry, sleepy and upset, me and my husband decided to go to the beach, and just relax for couple of hours. It was hacktic night, and I started to think about her again. She was transferred to the state jail, on some Island and probably laying on the hard metal bed, crying her eyes out. With all those thoughts, I fell asleep on the warm sand, next to my husband.
Next morning we made couple of stops before going to bail her out. We picked up her husband, who had the rest of the money for the bail bond.
Somehow, I had very bad feelings, that he would do something really stupid, and I was right. He used most of the money for his pleasures and drugs, opening the door and looking like a piece of shit ( excuse my language), he had no clue where and why we had to go anywhere.
My husband, who used to be a champion in kick boxing, grabbed him by his hair and dumped his face in the toilet water, one time, two, three, and finally his memories came back.
At that moment we were short in 1,200 dollars. How could he use those money for himself, when his innocent wife is in jail, saving his future? Addiction have no mercy!
We decided to go anyways and to try negotiate the amount. We were told that it’s ok, we can a make partial payments, but if she will not show up for court, none of those money will come back to us. We agreed and signed the papers.
Big man with red beard, gave us voucher and called the jail. He was nice enough to give us the directions and who to ask in the front desk.
It was after 11 o’clock in the evening and another 80 miles away. We jumped on the highway, everyone thinking about their own stuff, and driving towards the Island, where New York State jail located. Once we got to the parking lot, we saw a bus station and a big sign in front of the gate: “Only busses allowed behind this point.”
Thanks G-d, there was a place to sit, because we were waiting for 1 hour and 20 minutes. When the bus finally opened the doors, we took a sit inside. Suddenly, my husband’s cousin asked for the keys to our car, and jumped out of the bus holding the keys, which he grabbed out of my hands.
“I will be right there, on the next bus.”, – he screamed, running away. My husband jumped out of the bus, and catched him in couple of minutes, taking away the key from our car. He quickly ran back inside of the bus, and doors closed.
I looked at my husband, not understanding what just happened, and he explained to me, that he wouldn’t come back to pick us up, he would damage the car and get high some place, but would never come back.
And, I believed him!!!
Bus was driving very fast, but it was a long ride, maybe 40 minutes. They really made that jail save, so nobody can escape.
Another 9 hours passed and we saw her coming outside of the building. She was so happy to see us, and was very surprised not to see her husband. When we got out of the gates, and got to the car, her husband wasn’t there either. We took her home and stayed overnight with her, waiting for her man to show up.
Next day was very nerves to everyone, because he didn’t show up until 4 pm. We called every hospital, every morgue and every police station. My friend cried and cried, saying how much she loved him, and only wishes that he is ok.
Oh, he was ok!!!
Came home like nothing happened, kissed her, said couple nice words to her, and she was so happy.
He was high. Almost like a drunk person, he couldn’t stay on his feet, and none of his words were clear.
“Why was she ignoring that fact?”, I was thinking to myself. All those excuses worth nothing.
He took a cab to the west side, found what he needed, hijacked somebody’s car, and while driving, shot himself with heroin, pulled over on the side of the road and fell asleep. Police car found him in the morning, sleeping in the stolen car, but they just gave him a ride home. How lucky for him. I guess it’s really a good feature to have, using the right words at the right time. Abilities to talk, gives people chances in life. He was one of them.

My predictions about Ukraine are developing exactly as expected (details in PREDICTIONS and articles linked on the Predictions page). In 2013-14, while Russia was looking the other way during the Sochi Olympics, the US/West planned to destabilize Russia via Ukraine. The plan included the takeover of the geopolitically super-important Crimea, turning it into the oversized US/NATO base and kicking out the Russian Black Sea fleet. It also included the takeover of the entire Ukraine, culminating in the creation of anti-Russia on Russian borders. US was planning to destabilize and subsequently destroy Russia with the hands of the Russian-speaking, but thoroughly brainwashed Ukrainians – and make no mistake, Ukrainians are in fact Russians (more: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History).
Despite long-term and careful planning, despite $5 bln spent by the US to ‘subvert Ukraine’ as admitted by Victoria Nuland, all the…
