“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”…Declaration of Independence

“the painful necessity of having recourse to arms in defense of our National freedom and constitutional rights, against all invasions; and at the same time do solemnly engage to take up arms and risk our lives and our fortunes in maintaining the freedom of our country whenever the wisdom and counsel of the Continental Congress or our Provincial Convention shall declare it necessary; and this engagement we will continue in for the preservation of those rights and liberties which the principals of our Constitution and the laws of God, nature and nations have made it our duty to defend.” …Tryon Resolves, NC, August 14, 1775

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”…Thomas Paine


From the Daily Beast July 4, 2014.

“Moravian settlers in NC were the first Americans to officially celebrate the 4th of July. But they weren’t partying in honor of military victory. They were thanking God for peace.

At the nation’s first official Independence Day celebration, there were no fireworks, no sparklers, and no rowdy parties. The parade was solemn, with reverent music and the call-and-response singing of two choirs. Songs were sung in German.

Those marking the nation’s hard-won independence at that first celebration had not participated in the long and bloody war, and they were not celebrating the newly free nation’s victory over the British oppressors at Yorktown. They were thanking God for peace.

That subdued celebration was on July 4, 1783, in the Moravian village of Salem, now part of the hyphenated city of Winston-Salem in Piedmont North Carolina. On January 20 of that year, a preliminary peace agreement in Paris had signaled the end of the Revolutionary War, even though the Treaty of Paris would not be signed until September.

Ecstatic over both victory and peace, Alexander Martin, the governor of the new state of North Carolina, proclaimed July 4 a day of public thanksgiving. The governor’s order was not widely heeded. Some of the more backwoods areas of the state didn’t even hear about it until the designated date had passed. But Governor Martin, on his way to somewhere else, stopped in the thriving settlement of Salem on June 30 and mentioned the proclamation.

Despite the short notice, Salem and the other Moravian villages that made up the Wachovia settlement scrambled to put together suitable observances. All the villages celebrated at least a little, by ringing bells or attending church. But the grandest, most extensive celebration was at the settlement’s main town, Salem. That, plus the Moravian fondness for documenting everything, gives Salem its claim to the first-ever Fourth of July celebration.

“Moravians kept meticulous records and wrote everything down,” said Tyler Cox, the manager of community relations for Old Salem Museums and Gardens. The Salem Diary for July 4, 1783, details the day’s events. Since no one else has produced similar proof, “We think we can pretty safely say the first celebration was here.”

Apparently, the Moravians in Salem got the jump even on their brethren who lived near Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence had been signed in 1776. The Moravians, a Protestant group in what is now the Czech Republic, had sent missionaries to establish the settlement of Bethlehem, Pa., in 1741.

A little more than a decade later, Moravians bought land in the North Carolina hills and began the Wachovia settlement. Salem was established as its center in 1766, with five outlying congregations. The Moravians were an industrious, inventive, highly organized, devout people who valued education for all. Their way of life can be observed today at a living museum.

They also had a strong pacifist tradition, dating to their founding amid the religious struggles of the 15th century as a “peace church.” Members were forbidden to serve in the military. They lived by the teachings in Christ’s Sermon on the Mount.

It’s little wonder that by 1783, the Moravians in Salem were thrilled that the battles were over. During the Revolution, both British and rebels harassed them, collected fines, and even attacked them physically. Some young men hid in the forest to escape being pressed into service. A few did join with the rebels; the church forgave them later.

Too, the Moravians, despite their reluctance to bear arms, were pleased to be part of the new country, now that it was at peace. They heeded the governor’s proclamation. And eight years later, in 1791, they welcomed President George Washington for a two-day stay and tour of the settlement.

The 1783 Independence Day celebration, as documented in the Salem Diary, started with trombone music, of which Moravians were fond. At 2 p.m., there was a Love Feast, a Moravian tradition that is more a celebration of community than a sacrament. People gathered in the church for a service that included a simple meal (usually coffee heavy with cream and sugar, plus a sweet bun).

As Moravians have long made music central to their worship, the service also included the singing of a “Psalm of Joy.” That gives the Moravians at Salem some claim to having come up with the first patriotic song celebrating the nation’s freedom. (This was years before Francis Scott Key wrote “The Star Spangled Banner.”) Johann Friedrich Peter, who was the chief scribe and keeper of the Salem Diary, also served as composer-on-call, whipping something up whenever the occasion called for a new hymn or a celebratory opus. Some accounts say he wrote the cantata “Psalm of Joy” for the occasion, but Richard Starbuck, assistant archivist at the Moravian Archives in Winston-Salem, said that the composition wasn’t entirely new. Pressed for time, Peter adapted a piece he’d written celebrating the end of the Seven Years War.

The cantata, often described as “challenging,” was sung entirely in German.”

    Tryon Resolves, NC, August 14, 1775.

    “The unprecedented, barbarous and bloody actions committed by British troops on our American brethren near Boston, on 19th April and 20th of May last, together with the hostile operations and treacherous designs now carrying on, by the tools of ministerial vengeance, for the subjugation of all British America, suggest to us the painful necessity of having recourse to arms in defense of our National freedom and constitutional rights, against all invasions; and at the same time do solemnly engage to take up arms and risk our lives and our fortunes in maintaining the freedom of our country whenever the wisdom and counsel of the Continental Congress or our Provincial Convention shall declare it necessary; and this engagement we will continue in for the preservation of those rights and liberties which the principals of our Constitution and the laws of God, nature and nations have made it our duty to defend. We therefore, the subscribers, freeholders and inhabitants of Tryon County, do here by faithfully unite ourselves under the most solemn ties of religion, honor and love to our county, firmly to resist force by force, and hold sacred till a reconciliation shall take place between Great Britain and America on Constitutional principals, which we most ardently desire, and do firmly agree to hold all such persons as inimical to the liberties of America who shall refuse to sign this association.”

    Halifax Resolves April 12, 1776.

    “The Halifax Resolves were the first official provincial action for independence in any of the colonies. The Fourth Provincial Congress adjourned on May 15, 1776, having appointed a single Council of Safety to rule the entire colony. This council was meeting in Halifax when, on July 22, it received news that the Declaration of Independence had been signed in Philadelphia. The council immediately adopted a resolution declaring North Carolinians “absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown.” Insert attached image flag.jpg with caption “The North Carolina state flag includes the date of the Halifax Resolves, April 12, 1776.””

    Halifax Resolves.

    “The Select Committee taking into Consideration the usurpations and violences attempted and committed by the King and Parliament of Britain against America, and the further Measures to be taken for frustrating the same, and for the better defence of this province reported as follows, to wit,

    It appears to your Committee that pursuant to the Plan concerted by the British Ministry for subjugating America, the King and Parliament of Great Britain have usurped a Power over the Persons and Properties of the People unlimited and uncontrouled; and disregarding their humble Petitions for Peace, Liberty and safety, have made divers Legislative Acts, denouncing War Famine and every Species of Calamity against the Continent in General. That British Fleets and Armies have been and still are daily employed in destroying the People and committing the most horrid devastations on the Country. That Governors in different Colonies have declared Protection to Slaves who should imbrue their Hands in the Blood of their Masters. That the Ships belonging to America are declared prizes of War and many of them have been violently seized and confiscated in consequence of which multitudes of the people have been destroyed or from easy Circumstances reduced to the most Lamentable distress.

    And whereas the moderation hitherto manifested by the United Colonies and their sincere desire to be reconciled to the mother Country on Constitutional Principles, have procured no mitigation of the aforesaid Wrongs and usurpations, and no hopes remain of obtaining redress by those Means alone which have been hitherto tried, Your Committee are of Opinion that the house should enter into the following Resolve to wit,

    Resolved that the delegates for this Colony in the Continental Congress be impowered to concur with the delegates of the other Colonies in declaring Independency, and forming foreign Alliances, reserving to this Colony the Sole, and Exclusive right of forming a Constitution and Laws for this Colony, and of appointing delegates from time to time (under the direction of a general Representation thereof) to meet the delegates of the other Colonies for such purposes as shall be hereafter pointed out.”

    ………all of which was the PRECURSOR OF WAR! I fear that we are once again seeing the PRECURSOR………but this time it will be the direct result of our now TYRANNOUS GOVERNMENT………which BTW we were advised of in the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration also tells us what we MUST do about it.

  5. ……WHAT A SURPRISE……..
    ……….it would be if both the British , and the French ended up assisting us in the eventuality we become embroiled in another Revolutionary war………which could happen!

  6. ……….had it not been for certain people4 in France our Revolutionary war might have ended in TRAGEDY. We can also thank the Frenchman Lafayette for his leadership during the revolution. He was an experienced and capable field commander whose leadership was in part responsible for the outcome of the war.

    Have you ever taken a moment to stop and ask yourself what sacrifices have been made over the past 240 years to give you the freedom to say what you wish, worship as you please, and to live in peace with your neighbor ?

    Well my friends, I’m fixing to tell you.

    It is my hope that at the end of this post, you will bow your head and silently thank our almighty God for the bounty your forefathers have given you.

    There were 56 men of God who signed the Declaration of Independence on that fateful day in July of 1776. In our schools of the past, we use to teach our children of the fates that befell these men for daring to put their names to that document, but here lately, most modern-day schools think that is old-fashioned and unnecessary in the education of our youth.

    I strongly disagree with that approach. As a nation, if our children do not know where we have been, they surely will not know where we are at…if they do not know where we are at as a nation, they damn sure won’t know where they are going in the future…….it’s that simple.

    Now, at the ripe old age of almost 81, I was taught as a child that my God and Country came first in every American’s life…Our parents called that, ‘the patriotic way’.

    I may be old-fashioned, but I still think that way.

    My wife says with pride that , “if I’m cut, I bleed Red, White, and Blue”.

    I am a Proud Patriot, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I have fought for my country. I have watched my friends sacrifice and die for the flag we fly. My tears have been many, Although many years have passed, my memories are still as fresh in mind as the day I acquired them. I paid dearly for my freedoms.

    However, I paid no more, nor no less than any other veteran who has ever worn the uniform of this nation. We were a team. Always have been, always will be. And the heritage of that team went all the way back to Valley Forge and that cold, cold winter of bleak and misery, and almost certain failure.

    Now, let me tell you what others before me have paid for the freedoms we enjoy today. Their sacrifices were far great than mine, but had I lived in those times, I would have gladly done the same as I am sure you would have too.

    Standing straight and tall, and with unwavering voices, each of the 56 men pledged:
    “For the support of this Declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

    That was a hell of an offering. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. Many of them paid that price before it was over. This was the beginning of the end of their lives, most of them knew the dangers they would face, yet they willingly made that choice, not for themselves, but for you and for me and every American.

    Not for themselves, but for all who would follow in the new land, Here is what happened to but a few of those brave men;

    Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader by trade, saw his ships destroyed by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.
    Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.
    Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. They never regained that they had before.
    At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. With tears in his eyes, he quietly urged General George Washington to open fire with his cannon. His home was destroyed, and Nelson died in bankruptcy.
    Francis Lewis had his home and properties completely destroyed. The English jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
    John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she lay dying. Their 13 children fled the safety of their homes in fear for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year, he lived like an animal in forests and caves, eventually returning to his home only to find his wife dead and children had vanished. A few weeks later, John Hart also died from exhaustion and a broken heart.
    Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.
    Five signers were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before they died.
    Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned to the ground.
    Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured and their fate unknown.
    Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships imposed by the Revolutionary War.
    Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means and wealth, all were well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured. If their cause failed, it was certain death for all. But….they signed it anyway.

    Almost a hundred years later, and following another little bout with England in 1814, the winds blew hard on our ragged ole flag and Andy Jackson gave them a bloody nose that is still bloody today..

    Then came a time when it was ‘brother against brother’ in this country. That was a very painful time, our nation was divided, and the sacrifices were almost more that the tired ‘old lady’ could take…..but she survived and after four bloody years of death and destruction, our nation was united again, This time to never be apart again. The price that was paid for our mistakes left many deep scars that are still clearly visible in this country today. We are still working on those.

    Then the people of America was handed two World Wars not of our making and divided only by 20 years apart. In the first one, America and the entire world was introduced to the horrors of what man could do to his fellow man. This was the fist war in which civilians paid as much, or more, than did those men who were fighting the war. Over 8.8 million ‘men of arms’ died in that war. Over 8.9 million civilians suffered the same fate. War was getting to be very costly in human life.

    This was suppose to be the ‘War to End all Wars”….but it wasn’t, it was just the interlude to a greater one to come.

    Twenty years later, American became embroiled in another great World War. This time, one two different fronts. On the Atlantic side, we face the powerful German war machine. On the Pacific side, we faced the horrors of the Japanese Empire. Both require the most America could give. There was many times from 1941 through 1945 that our flag hung low and she almost fell….but she didn’t, thanks be to God! Almost one half million American men and women lost their lives in that struggle, over 600,000 were wounded. But, we came out of that ‘dog fight’ as the strongest nation on the face of this earth. We wasn’t fighting to see who could be first or the most powerful….we were fighting to give every living human on the face of earth the chance to be free.

    Since then, America has fought in Korea, Vietnam, and a hundred other different places to give people the same right to be free. We have paid a very high price in that endeavor too. Our blood has been shed in every conflict since the UN was first formed.

    Although, I do not agree with the principles of that organization, I do agree that everyone on this planet deserve the right to be free. I just think that freedom must be earned and that fight must start at home…..those still living in slavery must be willing to make the same sacrifices that you and I have made first, then ask the rest of the world for help and assistance.

    This has been a long post, but I make no apologies for it. Freedom cannot be limited to a certain number of written or spoken words… must flow like the rivers that nurture the lands and it’s people.

    And like that great American, Thomas Jefferson, who wrote and signed that Declaration of Independence once said;
    ” The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with both the blood of it’s Patriots as well as it’s Tyrants ”

    Happy Birthday America !!!!

    We look forward to, and wonder what your next 240 years will bring !!!!

    May our living God forever bring forth men and women to this great country who are willing to make the same kind of sacrifices which our forefathers made for us, and those who will follow us, which will forever give us the right to …Stand In The Sunshine of Liberty and Freedom !

    God Bless America

    Yes, the story is, the guy was running from the law after a traffic stop in a different part of town, and was going to ram through a barricade into the Wing Fest crowd going on, on Virginia St, that was closed for the festival.

  12. Oldsoldier80 @1:09 p.m. — thank you for that post. In giving the history of what happened to the signers of the Declaration of Independence and their families, you illustrate perfectly the contrast between those brave people, and the cowardice that infects segments of the citizenry today.

    “Oh my goodness! Someone might say MEAN THINGS to me or about me!” “I might — gasp — lose my job!” “Someone might THREATEN me!” “They’ll SHUN me!” “They might hit me!” “I might get a hangnail!” “They might muss up my hair!” “Oh my gosh, there might be OBSTACLES in my path!” “We can’t do it! We’d better not try! It’s too haaaaaaaaard!” “Better walk on eggshells 24/7 in a [futile] attempt to not offend minorities, or else they’ll RIOT!” And so on and so forth.

    So glad the Founding Fathers and the Signers of the Declaration weren’t such a bunch of 5-letter words for “cat” beginning with the letter “P”. Thanks again for your inspirational post.

  13. oldsoldier80


    I have tried very hard to live my life as I write of the things I find dear and close to my heart…I know you do the same….when I encounter people as you have so described in your post, I always remember something my great grandfather told me one time…he said, Son, ” Sticks and stones will break my bones…….but words will not hurt me”……I have remembered that.

    Thanks for the compliment to me post and have a Happy 4th !…Our current leaders really are a bunch of wimps and drag queens (p – – – -‘s) aren’t they ?

    Where are the Andy Jackson’s, Stonewall Jackson’s, and George S. Patton’s today ?….. God we sure need their help !

    This poor Indian cried a river for us over 45 years ago, but it did no good. Now he is gone, and we are in ” one hell of a mess ” ……

    This proud old Indian was once more American than we could ever hope to be, and he cared more for this land than every power hungry politician which has followed him…if this Brave Warrior could see America today, his tears would be flowing like a river…

    We have not only polluted our rivers and our land, but we have corrupted and surrendered our children’s birthrights. Ever day, we, as American’s, are losing more and more of our liberties and freedoms, yet people are under the false impression that is in order that we may be safer.

    Ben Franklin once said, ” Those who would give up their Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety “.

    If we don’t act soon, our Liberty and Safety will be gone and enemies will be changing the name of this great country to something foreign. Our children will be wearing burkas, and speaking in a strange Arabic language…….

    You were warned 45 years ago by the tear in this old Indian’s eyes.

    Natural Born Citizenship: It’s Not Where You Are Born, but How…

    Natural Born Citizenship: It’s Not Where You Are Born, but How
    By Mark A. Hewitt

    In January 2016, Congressman Alan Grayson said he would sue Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex) over his eligibility to be President. Grayson told MSNBC that he would sue over Canadian-born Cruz’s natural-born citizen status if the senator ever became the GOP nominee. Why? “Because the Constitution means what it says and says what it means.”

    In February 2016, Presidential Candidate Donald Trump jumped into the fray and said he was “very seriously” thinking about filing a suit to challenge Ted Cruz’s eligibility to be President. Senator Cruz’ father was Cuban-born; his mother was American. “He was born in Canada, lived there for years.” Presumably, Mr. Trump’s suit would have sought to determine if his competitor was a “natural born citizen” as stipulated by the U.S. Constitution. Article II of the U.S. Constitution states: “No person except a natural born citizen ……(Read Full Article)

    An Open Letter To “President” Soetoro-Obama

    Jonathan Mooers November 24, 2014

    [This is the fifth in a series of coordinated open letters since MAY 2014 designed to harness the national powers of Congress, American citizens, and a Boehner -Attorney Gowdy -O’Reilly political-media leadership to arrest Barry Soetoro for his Congress-and-reverse-discrimination-enabled presidential ID felonies and his foreign sympathy crimes against America]

    All I want for Christmas 2014 is for America to see, on tunnel vision television, the spectacle of Paul Irving, US House Sergeant at Arms, approach you in the Oval Office, read you a US House-prepared statement of your crimes against America, then handcuff you and lead you off to a DC jail to begin your test for drugs/full life history identification/prosecution for treason/sentencing/execution of sentences. As a 65-year-old legal natural-born American Citizen whose ancestors immigrated to America in 1638, I am demanding that you, Barry Soetoro (aka Barack Hussein Obama II) immediately cease all activities in the nation’s White House as you are nothing more than an abandoned bastard-at-birth, an illegitimate Chicago mulatto who chose to nurture an evil radical piratical spirit and foist it upon apple pie America!

    You and your enablers have conscientiously denied your full identity (ID) to some 318,000,000 Americans; and this premeditated robbery of The People’s presidential knowledge, this “Ignorance is Power”, will never be tolerated as such vigorous ID cover-up is indicative that you and your closest supporters know that you were never eligible to be a Constitutional President. As such, you remain a powerless covered-up fraud-ID “President” whose entire career under oath can only be rendered Constitutionally NULL and VOID as Congress has no Constitutional authority that would empower it to accept and fund any Presidential directives and Executive Orders from any president whom they know is not a Constitutional President! Will the newly elected Republican Congressmen be stopped on the capitol steps in DC and be instructed by Boehner and McConnell to join them in continuing to cover-up your Constitutional ineligibility from legal Americans? Or will they revolt against this ID cover-up?

    You are a covered-up Indonesian Muslim citizen and not a legal “natural-born [American] Citizen”; you are a former foreign exchange student, a cocaine-stained-brain adulterous homosexual with a felonious multilayered computer-generated “birth certificate” posted on tax-paid-for! You have intentionally harmed and humiliated the United States of America with an endless parade of treasonous actions while political-media leaders stand by or actively assist. You have revealed yourself to be Public Enemy No. 1 to America’s personal freedoms, personal safety, and national security. As a supposed Constitutional scholar, you lied on your Illinois attorney application by stating that you had no former name of “Barry Soetoro.”

    You are a foreign-sponsored Islamic operative attempting to control America’s collective thinking while improvising a tyranny of martial law, followed by the tyranny of highway-or-dieway sharia law, as reluctant alternatives to all-out Titanic panic national anarchy. You are a carefully marketed product from an unholy alliance of unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, David Axelrod (whose dad committed gun-assisted suicide) and yourself (whose narrative dad committed car-assisted suicide at age 46, an angry drunkard who left behind some four wives and eight children.) Since you were only in the presence of your visiting narrative Kenyan dad for a few weeks at age 10, your confusing life history in Dreams from My Father should be re-titled Father from My Dreams! Let history record that all you three clever anarchists ever did in this world was suck off American exceptionalism and trample on America’s flag at the same time! The Mother of all your Lies to Americans is that you are our Constitutional President; and this lie is protected by the syndicated dereliction of duty and the Omerta-like silence of the nation’s oath-taking, tax-taking Congress (Speaker Boehner in particular), by the tipped-off prejudiced Courts (the Alabama Case in particular), by the complicit US military leaders (LTC Terrance Lakin’s court-martial in particular), by the biased corporate mainstream media, and by the racist Executive Branch of the federal government ( you and Contempt-of-Congress Holder in particular) and by other complicit associations. It remains the rightful Constitutional duty of every legal American Citizen to remove any so-called President who acts to ignore his oath of office to faithfully execute the laws of Congress, who offers aid and moral support to America’s sworn enemies, and who actively, consciously, and insolently usurps the centuries-old duties and legal constraints of the Office of the President of the United States to perform,

    Today’s deliberate Democratic stonewalling, dove-tailed with Republican foot-dragging, is intended to promote your criminal rule until 2017. So, your immediate arrest and removal, by any appropriate means, is the only path to return to secure rational national sovereignty.

    In the universe of things, Barry, you are no more significant than a pondering ant; you are only a single body that is 70% water within a sea of humanity. Living in 2014 with your fraudulent identity covered-up by a virtual propaganda press, you are wrongly enabled to be the keeper of the keys of America’s nuclear arsenal; and you are Congressionally-enabled by EO 13489 to act outside the supreme law of the land (the US Constitution) while you conscientiously work to harm America’s body politic with your willful imposition of your innate foreign sympathies. This is wholly unacceptable. Barry Soetoro-Obama, since you can never be a Constitutional President, you yourself cannot even pass Everify, and you are the target of a formal deportation petition, you and your leading sponsor, Nancy Pelosi (a political whore whose actions align with those of Mary Surratt and whose arrogance approaches that of Elena Ceaușescu), will be making yourselves candidates for the gallows for assassination of domestic fidelity, national security, and Constitutional correctness. Your continued failure to uphold representative Constitutional requirements is the modern-day equivalent of TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION, and our guilt-locked Congress has no Constitutional alternative except to defund and de-power your usurpation of the Oval Office!

    This is not an exclusive list, nor does it relate to charges that might possibly be made against Ms. Clinton on grounds other than the unquestionable and basic ground that she moved all of her State Department email operation to a private and non-secured computer outside the State Department, and then attempted to destroy the record of those emails.

    Here are the six criminal laws of that type, which, I here allege, she clearly broke:
