Film Synopsis: Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Upon returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the “revolutionary professor” Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises even herself when she falls in love with Richard (Joseph Mawle), an English writer. They become caught up in the events of the Nigerian civil war, in which the lgbo people fought an impassioned struggle to establish Biafra as an independent republic.

It is imperative that WE THE PEOPLE are able to express that the Governed are not to be treated as Chattel simply because some individuals in the Government have acted against those who are being Governed. If the government choose not to recognize the harm that they inflict on the Governed then that becomes tyranny.
", --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
America has gone beyond being just a terrorist state it has become a tyrannical state, not only have the police and the Judicial System been allowed to kill Black Persons with impunity but White, Brown, Red and Yellow. America has become a Police State and the Police are now above the law and this is a danger to every Citizen of this Country. Now we must organize "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." To secure our rights as Citizens from the Tyranny of the Government protected Police? What about "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." In each case of the Killings by Police and Whites against Black Peoples rights have been violated and the victims are made the criminals.
Isa 44:20 Our imaginations are dull; we are surely gone astray, and cannot deliver themselves, nor say, Our right hand has wrought falsehood.
Isa 44:24 Thus says YAH, who saved you and who formed you from the womb and helped you: I am YAH who made all things; who stretched out the heavens alone; who spread out the earth by MYSELF 25 Who makes void the signs of the diviners and despises their divinations; who turns wise men backward and makes their knowledge foolish; 26 Who CONFIRMS the word of HIS servants and performs the counsel of HIS messengers: who said to Jerusalem, You shall be inhabited, and to the cities of Yehudah, You shall be built and I will raise up the ruins thereof; 27 Who said to the deep, Be dry, and who dried up the rivers; 28 Who said of THE KURTI, He is MY Shepherd and shall perform all MY pleasure; even saying to Jerusalem, You shall be built; and to the temple, Your foundations shall be laid. Isa 45:1 THUS says YAH to HIS Anointed, to THE KURTI, whose right hand I have upheld, to subdue nations before Him: I will loose the loins of kings, to open the doors before Him, and the gates shall not be shut; 2 I will go before Him, and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of brass and cut asunder the bars of iron; 3 And I will give you the treasures that are hidden in darkness and the buried riches of the secret places that you may know that I, YAH, who call you by your name, am the Holy One of Israel. 4 For the sake of MY servant Yacob, and Israel MY elect, I have even called you by MY name; I have surnamed you, though you have not known ME. 5 I am YAH, and there is NONE ELSE; there is no YAH besides ME; I have girded you, though you have not known ME. 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west that there is none besides ME; I am YAH, and there is none else.

Are miracles rare and unnatural occurrences? Where do they come from and what do they mean? Is there a relationship between the miracle, forgiveness and Atonement? Why do miracles play such a vital role in the undoing of the illusion of our ego/body identification?
A Course in Miracles says that miracles are natural and healing and when they do not occur something has gone wrong. It also says they are everyone’s right but purification is first necessary.
“Miracles honor you because you are loveable. They dispel illusions about yourself and perceive the light in you. They thus atone for your errors by freeing you from your nightmares.” Pg. 5 Text.
Join with Eloisa Ramos as we explore the principles of miracles, time, revelation, and the Atonement definition from the first half of Chapter 1 of A Course in Miracles.
Today we seek to understand the purpose and meaning of miracles and our part in what ACIM calls the Atonement.
“When you have been restored to the recognition of your original state, you naturally become part of the Atonement yourself. As you share my unwillingness to accept error in yourself and others, you must join the great crusade to correct it; listen to my voice, learn to undo error and act to correct it. The power to work miracles belongs to you…Doing them will bring conviction in the ability…The ability is the potential, the achievement is its expression, and the Atonement, which is the natural profession of the children of God, is the purpose.” Pg. 9 Text.
