      Excellent Read! There is so much Tension and Release Here in baffling measures. The Rubik’s Cube of Perspective is so On the Nose with all of the Interestingly complex nuances. Fascinating!

      Alex’s Adherence to keep returning to Face Goliath rather than run away should exude an Inspiration to Us All when committed to the betterment of the Whole while Fully Aligned Within one’s Self.

      This article encourages each one of Us in so many aspects - encouraging Us To Stand Up in the face of adversity and encouraging Us to excavate Beyond Everything We think We already Know.

      Fascinating interview! The effects of Novichok poisoning sound absolutely hellish. I can't imagine the kind of courage it takes to fight against political corruption in a place like Russia. It's astounding that this guy is going back after all this.

        Like coming upon a horrific accident, I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen! Returning? Insanity!

      Mind blowing! This is out of a James Bond movie minus the cool cars and attractive women.
