We should understand that opinions no matter what kind will always be there, but i'ts up to us how we handle them. We should see the bright side on everything, if people tells us that what we are doing is bad, we should ask them and…

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More
