      You follow it, don’t follow it, as God willing ... Here we recently had a case - we were on a shift for a fishing shift, and we met with an oil tanker, so all the fastened ones died, and the driver and mechanic survived, both not fastened (themselves They managed to jump out, but they didn’t manage to get the men out.) Then don’t believe in Fate, Rock, Fatum, and what else is there ...

    "We ask the Lord for the speedy restoration of our soldiers from the third division who were injured by an electric discharge in the military unit of Popayan. We agree with their families. Forces to them"
    It is foolish to slow down the One who so ambiguously showed his attitude (to the military in particular and Colombia in general. Joke, speedy recovery for servants.)
