The Heavens are wide, exceedingly wide. The earth is wide, very, very wide. We have lifted it and taken it away. We have lifted it and brought it back. From time immemorial, the God of old bids us all abide by his injunctions. Then shall we get whatever we want, be it white or red. It is God, the Creator, the Gracious One. Good Morning to you, God, good morning. I am learning, let me succeed.
