The same connection that they  experience with nature they feel toward all beings, including those who lived before and those who have yet to arrive.  They have a consciousness of the oneness, and therefore they make no distinction such as them or those other people.......Therefore connectors aren't surprised when synchronicity or coincidence brings them the fruits of their intention........"  Dr. Wayne W.

Black Hawk Down and International Relations

            Somalia in 1993 was extremely unstable, with the warlord Aidid stealing the humanitarian aid supplies sent to Somalia, and using starvation and poverty as his weapon.

It seemed to be a simple mission at first: arresting Aidid’s two top advisors. However, the operation wasn’t…
