Renowned Author Dr. Gregg Jantz is Also the Founder of The Center, A Place of Hope

Dr. Gregg Jantz

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Gregg Jantz has penned a range of self-help books that explore meaningful topics such as overcoming anxiety and stress and defeating eating disorders. Besides lecturing and writing, he shares his vision of hope, peace, and healthy living through The Center, a Place of Hope in Edmonds, Washington.

Dr. Gregg Jantz believes in a “whole-person” approach to care, which means that he considers emotional, intellectual, physical, relational, and spiritual existence when helping others through their problems. This way of addressing common issues like anxiety, stress, and depression helps his audience arrive at holistic, long-term solutions. He’s spent decades researching common problems, penning his thoughts, and giving guest lectures to provide healthier, more impactful alternatives to typical treatment.

At A Place of Hope, Dr. Gregg Jantz leads a team of 40 world-class, licensed and board-certified professionals who provide unparalleled treatment for a number of health issues. Patients of The Center, A Place of Hope are treated for things such as eating disorders, depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol addictions, PTSD and more. The Center was even recognized as one of the top 10 facilities in the entire U.S. for treating depression. The operation has helped transform lives of patients from across the country and around the world since opening in 1984.

“Life can be difficult at times, and many find themselves struggling with depression, eating disorders, addiction, broken marriages, and more,” says Dr. Gregg Jantz. “But we know that those struggles do not define that individual, and there is always hope for a balanced, healthy and happy future.”

After he spent years researching and discovering a holistic solution for eating disorders, depression and the like, Dr. Gregg Jantz wanted to increase both his ability to help his patients and his capacity for learning. From that, he brought together a team of world class professionals to address the medical, physical, psychological, emotional, nutritional, fitness and spiritual considerations involved in recovery. Dr. Jantz named this team’s facility The Center, A Place of Hope and has used it in its full capacity to transform patients’ lives ever since.

The Center tailors treatment programs to both men and women, covering a broad range of healthcare issues. It may come as a surprise that such intricate, individualized levels of care and treatment programs are offered at a fraction of the cost of most in-patient, hospital-based programs. However, you can compare prices for yourself.

The team at The Center understands that it’s ultimately up to each individual to seek help for their personal recovery. However, they promise to do their very best, to give patients all there is to offer, and to stay with them each step of the way toward healing.

“We are passionate about our work, and compassionate about those who seek help with us,” says Dr. Gregg Jantz. “It is a sacred trust to put faith in our treatment team, and we work very hard to ensure that each person receives expert care…and receives their life back.”

THE WAY TO HAPPINESS ASSOCIATION TAMPA BAY HOSTS “FOSTER SHOCK” DOCUMENTARY SHOWING.

The Way to Happiness Assn. of Tampa Bay invites residents to see an important documentary on what is happening with our foster children – Feb 2nd

Bringing a child into the world today is a little bit like dropping one into a tiger’s cage. Children can’t handle their environment and they have no real resources. They need love and help to make it”

— L. Ron Hubbard

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On February 2, 2019 at 6pm The Way to Happiness will be hosting the showing of “Foster Shock” a documentary film about Florida’s privatized child welfare and fostering programs by Miss Mari, with special guest speaker Tami Martin, Guardian ad Litem.

"Foster Shock" shows how Florida's “privatized” child welfare was created and how this has led to substantial amounts of taxpayer dollars being spent with little oversight and no accountability. The makers of Foster Shock are not looking to place blame but seek to make life better for the children, not some day in the future, but right now.

Mr. L. Ron Hubbard wrote in The Way to Happiness, “Today’s children will become tomorrow’s civilization. Bringing a child into the world today is a little bit like dropping one into a tiger’s cage. Children can’t handle their environment and they have no real resources. They need love and help to make it.” This is why volunteers for The Way to Happiness supports those who forward the message to take care of children, such as “Foster Shock”, and holds workshops and events to assist anyone in raising children with the common sense moral code, The Way to Happiness.

“The Church of Scientology and its parishioners proudly sponsor The Way to Happiness to keep the doors open to our The Way to Happiness Center and provide education and materials to the community at no cost,” says Ms. Tanja Cranton the Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay.

Find out how you can help and make a difference. Attend the “Foster Shock” documentary showing on Saturday February 2nd, at 6pm. There is no cost to attend, refreshments will be served and materials are included.

The Way to Happiness Community Center on 33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater FL 33755 opens its doors daily from 10am – 10pm to offer free tours, workshops, seminars and educational materials to the community. Community members are invited to join in, please call: (727) 467 6961.

VictimsSpeakDB.org Launches Book Promotion in Anticipation of Vatican's Summit on Clergy Sex Abuse February 21-24, 2019

Clergy Confessing His Sins in Vatican

Confession at the Vatican

In anticipation of Vatican’s Summit on Clergy Sex Abuse, February 21-24, 2019, VictimsSpeakDB Books and Amazon.com will be offering an exclusive book promotion.

The Roman Catholic Church can no longer exert its moral authority because it is has become an institution controlled by men who are intrinsically immoral. We are watching its demise in real time.”

— G.R. Pafumi

SPRING VALLEY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Presidents and other representatives of the world’s nearly 130 bishops’ conferences will gather in Rome next month for a summit on clergy sex abuse. Many experts are predicting it will be the most-covered Vatican event since the last papal election in 2013. The central issue the summit will address is, “The Protection of Minors in the Church.” Victim/survivors of abuse by clergy as well as members of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors will attend the summit. In anticipation of Vatican’s Summit on Clergy Sex Abuse, February 21-24, 2019, VictimsSpeakDB Books and Amazon.com will be offering an exclusive promotion on G.R. Pafumi’s four books covering the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic Church globally. From today and through the entire month of February, all four of Pafumi's books on Catholic clergy sex abuse and the history of the Church will be offered at substantially reduced prices.

• Inhumanity in the Name of Jesus: Volume I: Pain and Suffering, Aftermath of the Catholic Church's Belief in its Own Infallibility (Volume 1). Print Length: 515 pages. Publisher: VictimsSpeakDB Books, February 19, 2018.

Pope Francis and the Catholic Church are presently going through a crisis of papal proportions in many parts of the world. In January of 2018, Francis accused victims in Chile of calumny against a bishop who protected sex offenders in the Church. In August of 2018, a Pennsylvania Grand Jury released a report detailing abuse of over 1,000 minors by more than 300 Catholic clergy. A recent study noted that over the course of 65 years (1945 and 2010), 20 of 39 Dutch cardinals, bishops and their auxiliaries covered up sexual abuse. Another recent study documented the abuse of 3,677 minors by 1,670 priests and other clerics in Germany between 1946 and 2014.

Pafumi's four (4) books about clergy abuse delve into abuse worldwide They are, in part, based upon the research he compiled for the SACCADAS (Survivor Accounts of Catholic Clergy Abuse, Denial, Accountability and Silence) database. The database has thus far tracked the abuse of more than 17,000 minors and vulnerable adults by nearly 3,700 clerics in 55 countries. But his books not only report the hard facts (data and its analysis), but also the history of abuse by Catholic clergy and its cover-up by bishops, including the Bishop of Rome, the Pope himself. In "Inhumanity in the Name of Jesus: Volume II: Clergy Sex Abuse, The Indifference of the Last Six Popes," Pafumi describes how the last six popes did practically nothing to deal with this problem. The book covers the protection given to Father Julio Cesar Grassi by Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergogli, now known as Pope Francis. Bergoglio’s secret intervention with judges after Grassi’s conviction is believed to be, at least in part, the reason that Grassi, despite a 15-year sentence, remained free for years pending the outcomes of his many appeals. Grassi finally was sent to prison in September 2013, more than a decade after he was first charged, following the rejection of his third appeal. In the interim, he was free to abuse more children.

Pafumi's books provide a comprehensive history of clergy abuse and a description of a Church under fire worldwide. His books are available at a substantial discount through the end of February 2018 on Amazon.com. Anyone requiring a PDF copy of any of the four books should fill out the Contact Us form on the VictimsSpeakDB.org website.

SCA Partnership with Nationally-Accredited ICPT Delivers Standardized Evidence-Based CPE

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Spiritual Care Association (SCA), the leading provider of online standardized evidence-based curriculum resources, digital content, and professional development for chaplaincy services launched a curriculum licensing agreement with the Institute for Clinical Pastoral Education (ICPT) in 2018. Following the execution of the licensing agreement, on December 21, 2018, ICPT garnered accreditation with the Accrediting Commission of the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET). ACCET is a national accrediting agency recognized by the Secretary of Education as a reliable authority concerning the quality of education or training offered by the institutions of higher education they accredit. ACCET’s address is 1722 N Street NW, Washington, DC 20036 and their website is www.accet.org.

This is a historic milestone that sets ICPT’s Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) programs apart and elevates its relationship with SCA to a new level. SCA course graduates and professional clientele are now afforded the opportunity to enroll in the same high-quality online training they previously received from SCA or its affiliate, the HealthCare Chaplaincy Network (HCCN) through ICPT, which is accredited to offer CPE Units 1-4 and CPE Supervisor-in-Training (SIT) Units 1-4, with each of these Units consisting of 400 clock hours.

Through the partnership with SCA and HCCN, ICPT delivers its 400-hour accredited CPE programs in a hybrid learning format. The partnership was established to integrate HCCN’s 40+ years of relevant, real world CPE experience onto ICPT’s award-winning learning management platform for all 4 levels of CPE training and SIT training programs. This collaboration is intended to improve student learning outcomes while simplifying ICPT’s CPE Supervisor’s efforts to integrate current CPE events into instruction.

ICPT also partnered with SCA because its CPE content is educational and informative. It helps clinical providers and chaplains understand not only the current events of the day, but also how business and health care laws will impact the economy, society, and our lives in the future. Rev. Eric J. Hall, CEO of the Spiritual Care Association, said, “We are excited to partner with ICPT to bring engaging and informative CPE training to educators nationwide through an institutionally accredited school and look forward to continuing to build on this partnership.”

ICPT’s CPE Supervisors using SCA CPE content on the ICPT Canvas Learning Platform will be supported by the Spiritual Care Association and the HCCN Community. HCCN’s global community of healthcare and spiritual care providers connects members around the world through social media, virtual conferences, and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing and inspiration that helps transform CPE teaching and learning.

AUTHOR MAX HAWTHORNE FALLS ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL: DID A GUARDIAN ANGEL SAVE HIS LIFE?

ARE GUARDIAN ANGELS AMONG US?

NEW HOPE, PA, USA, January 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Max Hawthorne, author of the award-winning Kronos Rising series of novels, revealed a startling series of incidents during a recent interview, wherein otherworldly forces appeared to have taken a hand in preventing him from coming to harm.

“I’ve lived a tumultuous life,” Hawthorne said. “There have been many times where things happened and I found myself scratching my head, wondering how I emerged unscathed. In fact, the circumstances around some of these occurrences have been so odd that I’ve come to an inescapable conclusion – I have a real-life guardian angel looking after me.”

Known as the “Prince of Paleo-Fiction” for his bestselling series of Kronos Rising sci-fi/thrillers, which feature humanity struggling to cope with prehistoric life roaming free in today’s seas, Hawthorne added. “I’ve done many risky things, including the bungee jump, rescuing a drowning dog, and saving a woman from being beaten to death on a NY street corner. Once, I even stopped a very determined alligator from eating my father and I by fighting it off with a fishing net.”

Hawthorne attributes those things to skill and luck, but he believes that some things in his life cannot be explained. “I was driving on the NJ Turnpike and I fell asleep behind the wheel. My SUV started angling toward the tractor-trailer in the center lane, right beside me. Then, all of a sudden, I was woken up by being slapped across the face. I was alone in the vehicle, yet I got the distinct impression I’d been hit, and fairly hard.”

When asked what happened next, Hawthorne said: “My eyes snapped open and I found my vehicle about to enter that terrifying no-man’s-land between the front and rear sets of tires on an eighteen-wheeler. I would have been wedged there as the trailer’s rear tires impacted on my passenger door and right fender, and most likely crushed to death. It sounds outrageous, but my spiritual sentinel saved my life that day, and several additional times after that, and I am forever grateful for her protectiveness. Of course, I wish she was able to help me find a new literary agent, but hey, I’ll take what I can get!”

Hawthorne finished by saying, “All levity aside, I can only assume this means I’m meant to do important things in my life, for myself and the people I love. I just hope I’m able to recognize those pivotal moments and opportunities when I see them. Otherwise, I might need to be slapped again. You know, to wake me up and set me straight!”

Architectural Design Firm CEO Partnered with ESL Instructor / Youth Advocate to Release Inspirational 3-D Picture Book

Front Cover-Attiana’s Journey

Featuring Non-traditional Illustrations- Intricately Designed Decoupage 3-D Construction Paper Cut-out Images- Inspirational Poem

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES , January 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michael Marshall, President, and CEO of MMD-Michael Marshall Design and his sister, Vanessa Marshall Jones, ESL Instructor and Youth Advocate of Encourage Friends and "Stop Bullying in it's Tracks" Campaign, have launched an inspirational children’s picture book which teaches faith, friendship building, self- confidence, courage, and hope. This mystical tale gives children a playful, glimpse of Africa, its safari animals, and an inspirational storyline that will leave children of all ages wanting to read ATTIANA'S JOURNEY or have it read to them, again and again. For an added twist, vividly colored images of 3-D paper cut-out illustrations were created by, award-winning architect, Michael Marshall, whose work from a lifelong career in Architectural Design can be found on display at the Smithsonian’s NMAAHC.

This book would be a favorite of children ranging from three years old to adults who enjoy unique art techniques. Jones, being a Literacy Volunteer and a member of the Friends of the Library Association, went with the decision to write Attiana’s Journey in lyrical verse, in hopes that young children would have fun with memorizing the poem and placing emphasis on word pronunciation and spelling. Jones begins the story at the bedtime of a young girl, Attiana, who tells the story of her journey to Africa, but is unsure if it is reality or a dream. She interacts with safari animals along the way, as well as the beautiful sun, which travels high above. When evening comes, the sunset queues the animals to retreat home. Attiana, then, feels lonely and afraid. She wants to return home, as well, but she is lost. Relying on her faith, she prays to God for guidance. He answers by taking her on a mystical escapade filled with adventure and excitement and a very unusual, or should I say unexpected outcome.

Jones, also, has a bigger picture in view…-Production of a large 9”x16" paper doll standee for display which includes paper cut-out clothing and accessories. This doll will be available to be purchased, separately, at the website-
www.encouragefriends.com/books. Hoping to inspire children to return to the day of the paper doll as an escape from a technology-filled toy world. The intent is to encourage the child's imagination to create self-colored designs, both clothing, and accessories, for the tall Attiana display standee doll. The templates will be provided via download and all that is needed is imagination and colored markers, glitter, rhinestones or other appropriate art materials. The book character’s pajamas were created white to leave the reader/artist the opportunity to utilize their own colors and creativity. The standee doll will also include an orange tissue paper-like scarf to represent the one the book character is wearing.

Attiana's Journey, the Inspirational Stage Play, book animation, and "What is This Life About?" new music project are next. This Gospel / Positive Rap single, performed by Jones, the Encourage Friends Kidz Project, and Jones' son, Kenny Lee can be streamed and downloaded at http://www.encouragefriends.com. As our country faces such a divisive, scary time and a grim political climate, children are watching it all transpire and are questioning their future world. This has inspired Jones to write the song and start the "What is This Life About?" movement, which is slowly picking up momentum. Jones explains that this book project has been a long time coming. She felt very honored when her brother, Michael, called her up, one day, and said, "Hey, did you ever finish that poem about the little girl going to Africa? Send it to me. I have an idea for the illustrations and I will work on it in my free time." Jones says its an awesome feeling when someone reads your written words and gives visual life to them that perfectly matches your imagination."

Attiana’s Journey is available for purchase at Barnesandnoble.com and Amazon.com For more info about the author, an Author's Visit or the Stop Bullying in it's Tracks Campaign, please visit www.encouragefriends.com/books or use contacts, below. Jones is seeking traditional publishing-Literary Agent- for future work.- Please visit our social media pages and hit LIKE to support and our website https://www.encouragefriends.com to donate to our kidz project!

சம்பந்தன் : தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு சமஷ்டி மற்றும் வடகிழக்கு இணைப்பு இல்லை. புத்தமதத்திற்கே முதலிடம்.

சிங்கள தலைமைக்கும் பௌத்தத்திற்கும் அடிமைகளாகிய சுமந்திரனும் சம்பந்தனும். (Click to view enlarged image)

தலைவர்கள் மக்களின் அரசியல் அபிலாசைகளை தீர்ப்பதில் பயப்படுகிறார்கள், பாதுகாப்பான தீர்வு கிடைக்குமானால் புலம்பெயர்ந்தோர் தாயக்கத்துக்கு படை எடுப்பார்கள்

தற்போதைய தலைவர்கள் அதிகாரத்தில் இருக்கும் வரை தமிழர்கள் எந்தவொரு அரசியல் தீர்வையும் பெறமாட்டார்கள்.”

— Editor

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, January 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — சம்பந்தன், வடகிழக்கு இணைந்த சமஷ்டி (கூட்டாட்சி) க்கு தாம் பெற்றுத்தருவோம் என்று தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு 2015 தேர்தலில் வாக்குறுதி அளித்தார்.

கிறிஸ்தவர் சுமந்திரன் தமிழரின் மற்றய சமயங்களிடம் இருந்து அனுமதி பெறாமல் புத்த மதத்தை முதன்மையான சமயமாக ஏற்றுக்கொண்டவர் . இலங்கையில் இந்துக்கள் இரண்டாவது சமயமாக இருக்கையில் இந்துக்களை கேட்காமல் இது போன்ற உறுதி செய்வது ஜனநாயகம் அல்ல.

ஒருவேளை சுமந்திரன் தனது மதத்தில் விசுவாசமாக இல்லாமல் இருக்கலாம் அல்லது புத்த மதத்துக்கு மாற இருக்கலாம், ஆனால் பெரும்பாலான கிறிஸ்தவர்களும் இந்துக்களும் தங்கள் மதத்தில் மிகவும் பக்தியாகவும் விசுவாசமுள்ளவர்களாக உள்ளனர். சுமந்திரன், முஸ்லீம் நாடுகள் போன்ற ஒரு மதச்சார்பான நாடாக இலங்கையை உருவாக்க முயலுகிறார் . உலகெங்கிலும் இருந்து இந்த முஸ்லீம் நாடுகளுக்கு கிடைக்கும் மரியாதையை நாம் அறிவோம். இவர் தீவிர வன்முறையானா சிங்கள மக்களை மேலும் அரேபிய முஸ்லீம் மக்களை விட மிகவும் தீவிரமாக ஆக்குகிறார்

 
சுமந்திரனும் சம்பந்தனும் கூறுவது சமஷ்டி இல்லை, ஆனால் சிங்கள மொழிபெயர்ப்பின் படி எக்கிய ராஜஜா என்பது ஒற்றை ஆட்சியே.

அர்த்தமற்ற, பொய்யான, வெறுமனே செய்கையற்ற , எந்த அர்த்தமும் இல்லாமல், போலி ஆறுதல் கூறும் வார்த்தைகள் தான் சம்பந்தன் தமிழருக்கு செய்யும் அரசியல். கடந்த 10 வருடங்களாக அவரது வார்த்தைகளின் பட்டியல் இங்கே:
குழப்பாதீர்கள்
அமைதியா இருங்கள்
ஒருமித்தநாடு
சமஷ்டி பண்புகளுடன்
சமஷ்டி குணாதிசியனங்கள்
வட கிழக்கு இணைப்பில்லாட்டில் சம்மதியோம்
சமஷ்டி இல்லாத தீர்வுக்கு சம்மதியோம்
நீதி மற்றும் சமத்துவம் என்பவற்றின் அடிப்படையில்
ஒருமித்த நாட்டுக்குள் பிரிக்கப்பட முடியாததாக இருப்பதை உறுதி செய்யும் வகை
தமிழரின் இலட்சியத்தை நோக்கி செல்கிறோம்
தமிழருக்கு ஒரு போதும் துரோகம் செய்ய மாட்டோம்
அடுத்த பொங்கலுக்கு தமிழருக்கு விடுவு
அடுத்த புது வருடத்துக்குள் தமிழருக்கு விடுவு
எல்லா பிரச்சனைகளையும் (வேலையில்லா காணாமல் போனோர் அரசியல் கைதிகள்) தீர்வுக்கு பின்னர் தீர்ப்போம்
என்னிடம் திறப்பு இல்லை அரசியல் கைதிகளை விடுவிப்பதற்கு
இப்படி பல ஏமாற்று கதைகள்.

அவர் தமிழருக்கு உறுதி கொடுத்த சரியான காரியத்தைச் செய்ய முடியாவிட்டால் (உண்மையில் முடியாது போய்விட்டது), அவர் இராஜிநாமா செய்ய வேண்டும். மற்றும் சாத்தியமான இளம் அரசியல்வாதிக்கு ஒரு வாய்ப்பு கொடுத்து, தமிழருக்கு ஓர் தீர்வு எடுக்க வேண்டும்.

தமிழர்களுக்கு சரியான தீர்வை பெற ஒரு வழி உள்ளது. இது உண்மையான தீர்வை ஸ்ரீலங்கா ஏற்றுக்கொள்ள வலுப்படுத்தும் சக்தியாகும். இந்த வலு கொண்ட நாடு அமெரிக்காவே.

1.அமெரிக்கா 2009 ல் யுத்தத்தை நிறுத்த விரும்பியது. அமெரிக்காவின் போர் கப்பல் தயாராக இருந்தது. ஆனால் சிவசங்கர் மேனன் பல யுக்திகளை பாவித்து அமெரிக்காவை ஏமாற்றினார்.
2. ஐ.நா. மனித உரிமைகள் பேரவையில், சிங்களத்துக்கு எதிராக அமெரிக்கா யுத்த குற்றங்களை உறுதிப்படுத்தி ஓர் தீர்மானம் கொண்டுவந்தது.
3. ரணில் பதவி நீக்கத்தை ரத்து செய்து வெற்றி கண்ட நாடு அமெரிக்கா.
4. அக்டோபர் 2018இல், ராஜபக்ச பிரதம மந்திரியாக வந்தவுடன், அமெரிக்கா ராஜபக்சவின் கடந்த ஆட்சியை விசாரணை செய்ய வாஷிங்டண்ணில் வழக்கு ஒன்றை பதிவு செய்தது.

தமிழ் மக்களின் அரசியல் அபிலாசைகளை தீர்ப்பதில் உதவி வேண்டுமென்றால், அமெரிக்காவின் உதவியை கேட்டால் அவர்கள் வந்து பிரச்சினையை தீர்த்து வைப்பார்கள் என்பதை நினைவில் கொள்ள வேண்டும்.

தற்போதைய தலைவர்கள் தமிழ் மக்களின் அரசியல் அபிலாசைகளை தீர்ப்பதில் பயப்படுகிறார்கள், ஏனென்றால், பாதுகாப்பான தீர்வு கிடைக்குமானால் பெரும்பாலான புலம்பெயர்ந்தோர் தமிழர்கள் தாயக்கத்துக்கு படை எடுப்பார்கள்.

தமிழ் புலம்பெயர்ந்தோர் தாயகத்திற்கு அதிக அறிவாளிகளையும் நிதியுதவியையும் கொண்டு வருவார்கள். இது முழு இயக்கவியலையும் தாயகத்தில் மாற்றிவிடும். தமிழர்கள் வசதியாவும் அறிவாளர்களாவும் இருப்பார்கள். இது தமிழ் சிந்தனையை மாற்றும். அரசியலில் இருந்து வளர்ச்சியற்ற ஜனநாயகத்திற்கும் தமிழருக்கும்விரோதமனா த தே கூட்டமைப்பை தமிழர்கள் தூக்கி எறிவார்கள்.

எனவே தற்போதைய தலைவர்கள் அதிகாரத்தில் இருக்கும் வரை தமிழர்கள் எந்தவொரு அரசியல் தீர்வையும் பெறமாட்டார்கள்.
