Nothing can stop the Power of Good.
Think about it. " 'Good over Evil / Good over Evil / ...' "
The Power of Good is intrinsically of unending ripples and ever broader effects and ever deeper affects.
Effects of people on things such as Banks. Affects from from person to person.
Nothing can stop capacities of the Power of Good to produce positive change so long we keep It--the Power of Good through Love among and between us--going!
'Mankind's history has shown from one era to another that the true criterion of leadership is spiritual.'--Malcolm Little / Malcolm X / El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz.
