      Another young soul lost due to the vaccines being pushed upon children. Such a shame and parents are still ignoring the real dangers of these vaccines including the NEW “flu and booster” jabs being offered. Your healthy immune system is the only real vaccine you need.

      Shame on the government, doctors, and other health authorities that pushed and mandated these death jabs on everyone including children! Many people need to go to prison for these crimes!
