I don't want to write about my books or the law as such today but to thank you all for your support during the last two weeks. I have no words really to describe how you gathered around. I got emails from readers across the world. People I had no idea even existed. Many of my friends, well each one who "liked" my comments or wrote me or called me (despite me shrugging you off - sorry - my natural reaction is always to step back in such circumstances) has me as a friend for life. Those who chose to ignore me will have a case to answer for one day - I denounce them totally and will soon delete them out of every online and real life account I have. Such people are not worthy the name of "friendship" and in some cases "family" - be gone I say. My door is closed. Note please I am not bitter about anything, not Melissa's call for higher duty or the wankers above. Is a matter of priorities and the famous saying in the Bible of dealing with swine with your pearls - it is just not worth it. So be gone I say and stay gone. I recognized you for what you are.
What was amazing is how people reached out to God during these times. We had prayers going from three continents and many messages of hope. I dreamed one night that the prayers looked like a cloud or steam rising to the heavens and it gave me much comfort. There were so many messages on facebook of love that I came to the conclusion that these stories we read all the time of nations turning against God may be long hair liberal newspaper rubbish. When the chips were down they all would revert back to something higher and more established than the silly day to day things which bothers them so much. Yeah, I took a long hard look at what is important to life and almost nothing or prior value remained. No doubt that my life has changed and I have only one desire which is to live according to the values and principles of my American Patriot. In fact have no other choice if I want to meet her again in Heaven.
I received many letter requesting that I write a short tribute to Melissa which I did. It is downloading a lot for which I am grateful but be warned, it is not easy reading nor was it easy to write and I will absolutely never write such a tribute again. The feedback is one of sadness but also of hope...that this is not the end for those who believe in a mighty God. That she reached many with her assertions in our books and that she will live in their memory forever. Such messages took me by surprise - I knew the books were downloading by the thousands (ask anyone who publish something and he can tell you immediately how many downloaded) but it seems they also helped a lot of people. And many liked Melissa or as she was then known, my American Patriot, a lot. I never published anything about her without her permission and I well remember her laughing and asking "K, did I really say that?" So what you read is what I got in real life even if for a too short time. Thank you for your kindness and human decency in these times - we appreciate it very much. God bless. K
