    I am so glad I met Dr. Annamaria. She works without ceasing to help bring light to darkness by exposing Truth in regards to our Criminal Justice system and the people lost therein.

    • Thank You for Your kind words! As I could see You are doing the same!
      Stopping here, because I start to write….
