Alien Covenant Review

Warning : SPOILERS ALERT

Finally had the opportunity to watch ALIEN COVENANT this past month and I must say it was a little disappointing. Following Alien franchise since the beginning, the storyline is important to me. My first outburst of the movie was on Twitter :

“Saw @AlienAnthology #VFX astounding but #storyline upsetting. Astronauts have strict protocols. What happened, shouldn’t #AlienCovenant”

Let me explain :

NUMBER ONE

Any one hand-picked for a mission responsible for 2000 colonist, heading for distant planet Origae-6, would (in my mind) be highly trained Astronauts with strict protocols. Their responsibility is the welfare of colonist and not some rogue beacon on an unknown planet. Life-form or not, the DAVID android would make note-of-it, sending a electronic message back to earth through MUTHUR (MUTHUR is the Starship’s on-board main A.I. pronounced M-O-T-H-E-R).

If we were on Star Trek, Mr. Spock would definitely say,” It’s NOT logical. To make critical errors in judgment, threatening 2000 colonist is indeed unlikely.”

BUT – it’s a movie, meant to add precarious irrational decisions, causing complete havoc with no return. That’s what makes a movie exciting.

Screenwriters are trained to follow a specific Screenplay Outline, as are Directors. But Directors have the freedom to change whatever they want, as long as it makes a substantial profit at the box office. Here’s a quick layout :

1. ACT ONE – Establishment | Setup | Inciting Incident | Contemplation | Turning Point

2. ACT TWO – Acceleration | Enter Obstacles | Dead Centre | Crossing the Rubicon | Raising the Stakes | Crisis

3. ACT THREE – Prepare for Confrontation | Climatic Conflict | Aftermath and Resolution | Dissolution and Farewell

See HERE for in-depth detail.

The point is, there must be some kind of conflict and a series of mistakes to add tension to the movie, or else it would be pretty boring. For example, the real events and mishaps of Apollo 13 turned into a good movie, because the astronauts and NASA had to solve real problems in a dangerous environment. The iconic words, spoke the urgency…

“Houston, we’ve had a problem…”

It was indeed a life or death defining situation, where the whole world followed in their survival and safety back to earth from the moon.

That said, it’s vital the storyline makes sense or it becomes a jumbling mismatch puzzle with incoherent timelines, making us viewers grasp for reality. Knowing all to well Ridley Scott is a master Director, it seems ludicrous he wouldn’t tell a good storyline. After a little research, it wasn’t long before I realized the editing process of cutting scenes from Alien Covenant, proved to be the culprit. Ridley Scott’s creativity was hacked by removing crucial scenes by the editors involved. As a director I would be biting my upper lip, as scenes were eliminated.

Curiously, Ridley Scott still has full control of his movie.

So why did he approve of the Covenant crew making so many mistakes? Is it just a Hollywood ploy, to make fans see AWAKENING in order to get all the answers?

To me, this is how I would change the scene to make it work :

It would make more sense if android DAVID caused the INCIDENT, where he sent a deadly beam of energy disrupting the starships point-of-origin. It would be better then a random wave of CME ( Corona Mass Eruption) from a nearby star, as it happens in the movie. The scenes from that point would still hold true ; waking up the crew and killing their captain, due to a malfunction of his pod. In my mind, the burst of energy could have crippled the Starship to no return, causing it to crash on the planet where David is patiently waiting to carry out his deranged assault on the crew still alive. Crash landing on this planet would have made for a gripping terrifying scene.

NUMBER TWO

I love the fact Alien Covenant continues 10 years after my beloved movie Prometheus, so well executed by Ridley Scott. Personally watch Prometheus a dozen times to pick up eastereggs* I may have missed.

ON THAT NOTE :

To me I really don’t understand the backlash of Prometheus from fans. I realize the original ALIEN was basically a B-movie horror-slasher, but with its strong storyline and well executed ( pun intended ) actors, Alien did well at the box office. It was like this secret little gem waiting to be opened. That said, it’s my belief the fans of Alien, Aliens and so on, expect a horror slasher unconcerned about the science-fiction, the actual science and the clever plots Ridley Scott placed into Prometheus. It’s clear Ridley Scott caved to the wishes of its ALIEN fans, giving them the blood thirsty slasher ALIEN COVENANT.

[SPOILER ALERT FOR PROMETHEUS]

NUMBER THREE

If you followed Prometheus, you would be familiar with our lovely character Elizabeth Shaw, the last human surviver, along with David. We know Elizabeth doesn’t trust David, but she needs him to fly the Engineers Starship in order to answering the burning question she asked the Juggernaut,” Why did YOU (The Engineers) change your mind? What did we do wrong? Why do you want us dead?”

If I were Elizabeth, my trust in David would be nil. After fixing David and his ability to set course for Engineer’s HOMEWORLD using one of many alien Derelict spacecraft 🚀, I would immediately place David in stasis before doing the same myself. Any kind of tampering of my hyperbaric sleep chamber, would immediately set off an emergency alarm with instant release from stasis. So, in effect, Elizabeth would still be alive when Alien Covenant crew arrives, meaning a whole chain of events could take place.

I love the FINAL LOG of Dr. Shaw :

Elizabeth’s Final LOG, last survivor of Prometheus :

“The ship and her entire crew are gone. If you’re receiving this transmission, make no attempt to come to its point of origin. There is only death here now, and I’m leaving it behind. It is New Year’s Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My name is Elizabeth Shaw, the last survivor of the Prometheus. And I am still searching.”

<<<<
AIN JAMES MONTANA’S FINAL LOG :

In conclusion, overall Alien Covenant seems to have gain support by the majority of fans, and in the end, that's what really counts. 21st Century Fox covered the production budget cost of $97 million (reasonable, considering other scifi movies) making $238 million in sales.

Not bad, not bad at all.

I'm sure Ridley Scott was relieved he hit the mark for fans and certainly Fox must be pleased too. As a long time fan of the Alien Trilogy, can't wait to see the release of Alien: Covenant sequel AWAKENING, apparently starts production in 14 months. If I had a choice of Directors for my Scifi BLACK ANGELS, dear Ridley Scott would be first pick.

Las Vegas Tragedy Brings Humanity Together

I run and operate Vegas Reviews on Facebook and was completely shocked to hear of the terrible news in Las Vegas.

This is what I had to say on my Facebook Page :

Vegas Reviews would like to make a statement after last nights tragic shooting. A gunman on the 32 floor randomly fired into the outdoor country music festival below, killing at least 58 people and wounding over 500. The gunman killed himself on scene as the police acted quickly to end this terrible tragedy.

My condolences to the families victims as well as the injured.

I’m baffled as the reason to this senseless shooting.

In the last 48 hours, the world events have been absolutely crazy, from terrorists attack in Marseille, France and in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada…and now this terrible terrible event in Las Vegas.

Vegas Reviews has always been about the FUN of Las Vegas. It’s suppose to be the oasis of enjoyment for everyone but unfortunately we can’t predict the actions of one person. I praise the Las Vegas Police force and first responders for their quick action.

My wife and I have been going to Las Vegas since the 1980’s. Vegas has always been our favourite vacation spot for these past 37 years and it will continue to be the place to go for a rewarding holiday.

I started Vegas Reviews on Facebook along with my website, to symbolize the FUN of Las Vegas – like a bundle of joy. We share 1000’s of photos, videos and valuable tips with other Vegas Lovers, who also have made Vegas their vacation hot spot from across the world.

The City of Las Vegas tragic events hit home, but at the same time, it brings us closer together.

In times of tragedy it always good to see how humanity pulls together to help each other, no matter the risk. It’s our human nature to be compassionate. We praise for all those who have helped. I pray for those victims, where their only objective was to enjoy a concert and to have fun.

We pray for Las Vegas as humanity stands together, in defiance to hatred, where hate has no leg to stand on. Peace and Love is the human way, no matter the colour, race or religion.

We Are The People of the Universe by Bari Demers

We are the people of the universe

We are the people, We are the loving people

We are the beautiful people who rule the earth in love and peace

We the people who stand together in defiance to all types of hatred

We are a force to be reckoned, as we can never be broken

We are the Lovers of humanity

We are the people, the only people of the universe…as we know so far

May you join us, for We are the loving people

Come forth across the nations

Come together as one, for We are the people of the universe.

BMD

VEGAS STRONG – The Community of Las Vegas pulls together.

The above lyrics I thought up just now, to express my love for humanity and reach out to everyone in our beautiful world. We must come together as one, in order to be free. I truly am a lover of humanity and trust in the world coming together in PEACE.

Once again my deepest condolences to family & friends and the injured last night.

The Heart of Depression

Just recently ( May 2017) a young man of only 29 years old passed away due to acute depression. His name was Eskild ; a bright filmmaker from Norway 🇳🇴. The reason I know of him, is simply my interest in filmmaking. We met on YouTube – have a LOOK

Here you will see in the first few seconds of the film, Eskild ( Blonde hair) with his long time friend and film buddy Andyax.

Follow Eskild’s YouTube HERE

When I heard of Eskild passing away, I was shocked! Such a talented filmmaker with hopes of becoming well established in the film industry. To learn his death is a result of acute depression makes it all too real in today’s society.

Depression is a common occurrence but few talk about it because family and friends become uncomfortable with this subject. There’s this idiotic stigma pointing towards weakness, which is so far from the truth. Depression can be many things. It can be genetic, societies burden of stress, bullying or a chemical imbalance. Whatever the case, anyone with depression feels totally alone due to families and friends reaction.

Depression can be triggered from many things. It could be as simple as breaking up with your partner, doing bad in school, becoming pregnant, a death in the family, or result of an dysfunctional family.

What makes depression worse ?

The reaction of family or friends, telling you it’s only a phase…you’ll snap out of it! You’ll get ill advise, like :

  • Take on an activity, get involved.
  • Don’t worry, you’ll pull through it.
  • Stop being a pussy. Get your act together man!
  • Stop being such a baby!
  • Go to work, you’ll feel better.

In reality, they don’t really understand or want to deal with the problem.

Has this happen to you ?

Share with us what others have said to you.

The point is, the person with depression struggles alone, constantly fighting their inner demons. If you haven’t had real depression, you can’t understand what that person is going through. If that person feels completely lost and alone without any means of recovery, they will simply vanish, ending their life by whatever means they choose. Famous actors and singers have ended their lives, when you think they were on top-of-the-world.

See my post on Robin Williams HERE

How can they possibly be depressed?

Like I said, the only way you’ll understand is by having a deep depression yourself. And I don’t mean a one time depression, because of your finances or a fight with your spouse. I mean a long time depression.

As with Eskild, in day-to-day life, he looked happy and excited about his film making career. But underneath, it’s obvious he was struggling.

What made him decide there was no turning back ?

It could have been as simple as a rejection from a promising girlfriend, who never returned her love for him. It’s extremely hard to speculate what was going on, only it was all too real for him. He most probably felt there wasn’t any escape from his reality. Backed into the corner type-of-feeling.

Suicide is a split second decision.

Even health professionals have a hard time understanding everyone’s unique motive. Sure, they may understand the clinical reasoning but not truly understand the person. Or do they want to. In order to understand depression you must have experienced it yourself.

Have you ever felt there’s no escape?

On the outside you would have never known Eskild was having trouble. Truly he was a cheerful outgoing individual, eager to teach you how to make videos without a budget. Unfortunately there are warning signs, but like said, most reject it. Was it loneliness?

Unknown.

Eskild indeed was a remarkable person. And the thing is I never met him in person. Only known him through social media connections. So you see, that, as they say, is that…

All I really know about Eskild is, he sure knew the filming process, from filming, editing to the right type of equipment you should be using.

As film makers, screenwriters, artist, actors and crew, we all hope our project will one day be in the theatres throughout the world, sharing our amazing story with others. It’s hard to speculate what caused Eskild to feel so sad. If only he knew the world was watching his videos because of his remarkable skill in the film industry.

We all have dreams.

Unfortunately, only the ‘few fortunate’ make it to the top selection of life. Most of us struggle waiting for that lucky break where we’re given an Oscar for our incredible achievements. The world of ‘Fine Arts’ is indeed the most challenging due to the fierce competition.

I had a dream too.

If only I could afford to fly Eskild and Anders up here to British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦 to begin production on my Scifi horror genre screenplay,’Black Angels’.

BUT – like everyone else I don’t have 20 million dollars to execute my dream into reality. All I can do is promote and wait for that lucky break. While I wait for that lucky break ( like the rest of the world) I like to dream. My dreams are placed into words. Those words envision a story.

“ I envision a story and bring it to life.” BMD

I only hope I can encourage others to follow your path, no matter the obstacles.

Don’t let your dreams die!

Did you know Robert Redford used his stardom to help other struggling independent filmmakers? This is why he started Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Did you know investors, directors and production companies head to Sundance Film Festival seeking new talent ? All you have to do is make a ‘short film’ from 10 – 15 minutes long. The point is, Robert Redford wanted to open the doors to unknown filmmakers.

My heart goes out to Eskild. I only wish I could of assured him, even though there are a lot of road blocks in life, your dreams will never be crushed. Eskild talent as a filmmaker, was without question valuable to the world.

It’s with a heavy heart to say Eskild will deeply be missed. My condolences to his family. I only wished I met him in person and could have helped.

This stigma of depression must stop ! If you’re a friend? Be a real friend and encourage that friend. Give him or her hope for a brighter future. It’s a struggle out there; just don’t let that friend of yours struggle by themselves. Never give them an ultimatum.

Show them LOVE , RESPECT and KINDNESS.

A Father is What a Father Should Be 

A Father is What a Father Should Be
This weekend is Father’s Day, so I would like to say a Father means more then just being a Father figure of the family. 

It also means : 

1. Each Father has a responsibility to looking after the well-being of his family, loving his children and hopefully teaching them to become responsible adults, where they too, show carrying love towards their children.  

2. The Father shares the responsibility with his loving wife or partner, working hard throughout their lives, ensuring their children receive unconditional love ❤️, warm shelter, food, the right education, clothing and protection from harms way.

3. A Father’s responsibility doesn’t end when his children grow up but continues giving advice towards the well being of his children, helping them out as much as he possibly can. The only difference, it’s up to the kids to make their own judgment, striving towards a responsible adult. At first your kids don’t understand your advice, but later on (with life experiences) come to you and say,” Now I understand what you were trying to say Dad.”  

4. A Father is a Dad. A Dad is one that will teach you new beginnings, such as riding your first bike or tying your shoes. He will also take you on a journey, exploring what the earth has to offer, from hiking to the top of a mountain to camping ⛺️ within our amazing provincial parks.  

5. A Dad will show you how important education really is, by introducing you to the science pavilions across Canada 🇨🇦 , or where he may reside. He may help you discover a new science experiment or take you gold panning, learning the science of geology. 

6. A DAD is a loving DAD who cares for his children and wife or partner. 

7. A LOVING DAD hopes his children take the right path in the future, to look after themselves and their new family. 

8. A LOVING DAD sometimes will bite his tongue, knowing you may have made some wrong choices, but realizes you will figure out in the end, either by your own experiences or life’s roadblocks.

In the end, a LOVING DAD will always love ❤️ his family. 

Life is a journey and you’re sure to make mistakes along the way.  

BUT – 

What’s really important in life, is your FAMILY. A LOVING FATHER/DAD will teach you, FAMILY is everything. If you can’t trust your family, you’ve lost everything in life. FAMILY means trust, love and even forgiveness.  

AND – 

If your MOM and DAD taught you right, you know when’s it’s time to step-up-to-the-plate and help your mom and dad. It’s the cycle of life.  

SO – 

I hope I’ve been a good DAD teaching my kids right from wrong, leading them towards kind loving adults, expecting nothing in return. I also hope that they respect me who I am and understand I only want the best in their welfare, loving them forever. 
As I head towards retirement, my wife and I will now take this time to enjoy the fruits of our labour, seeing our grandchildren grow into responsible adults to continue on the cycle of life. I hope for the best in my children and their partners, as they continue on into a brighter future. My love to my family.

Love DAD

We are Illogical 

The Okanagan- My Home
Today, as I write, ‘We are illogical’, I have arrived in the sunny Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦. Throughout the fall and winter months you’ll find me feverishly writing science-fiction thrillers and assorted screenplays, such as BLACK ANGELS (ready for release) and short stories, like Android Alisha. But during the months of June, July and August, you’ll find me at my summer home, partaking in outdoor activities within our Canadian oasis, well known by celebrities across North American. In fact, as we speak, there’s a couple of filming crews setting up in Kelowna, BC. This may be the summer home for the rich and famous, but to me, it’s simply where I was raised as a kid. It’s indeed my home. For Canada 150 or your next vacation I highly recommend you take a visit to the sunny Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦.

Black Angels by Bari Demers
WE ARE ILLOGICAL 

My creative art of writing can be referred to as the ‘Vincent Van Gogh art-impressionist-style’, left with secret hidden messages throughout each paragraph. Writing is an expression from my inner soul, hoping to make a difference to my readers, as they begin to explore the plots and twists behind my stories.

Throughout my life I have questioned our reality.  The how and why of our very existence is indeed intriguing, leading me to believe the possibilities of a higher intelligence far surpassing our own. I like to refer them as our ancestral GODS, who have left behind visible landmarks and scriptural clues. It’s even speculated the GODS of the Heavens may have altered our DNA and evolutionary timeline, making us who were are today. 

With the ways of our human race, it frustrates me to no end, “Why do we react in such an illogical behavioural pattern, causing physical harm to others, over our proposed belief in religion and/or power ?” 

As Mr Spock would say,” “May I say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed serving with humans? I find their illogic and foolish emotions a constant irritant.” 

Writing is my passion and speaks out to our foolish ways, thinking we have complete control over everything. Where, in reality, we are nothing more then a small dot in the evolutionary timeline, waiting to be exterminated by the forces of nature, much more powerful then we could ever comprehend.  

Our historical past is extremely violent, as is our present day. From dictatorship to religious fanatics, its remarkable our human species hasn’t yet been terminated. We are indeed an illogical species, forgetting about the needs of the many and too many of us are self absorbed in the needs of the one. 

We are illogical. 

It’s my hope my grandchildren will one day explore the fruits of our universe while building the foundation of their generation into a more stable civilized society expressing the love for others. If not, it’s just a matter of time our species will become extinct, like our predecessors, the dinosaurs. 

Maybe one day, millions of years in the future, another carbon-based species will find and decipher today’s article, taking heed to the warning signs of our demise. THEM, being an advanced civilization who were nurtured by millions of years of unaltered evolution, they may wonder how these savage human beings ever survived at all. 

OR 

Maybe today, the younger generation will read this article, realizing the fate of mankind, taking steps to eradicate the diseased virus of being self absorbed and begin a brighter future for all of mankind, where freedom is for all, wars no longer exist and the meaning of peace and love is for everyone. It will also mean we must explore other worlds, in order to remove the hardships of Mother Earth, as our footprints continuously places havoc on our planet’s fragile environment. We can be the loving caretakers of earth 🌏 and other M-based planets we visit, realizing our world is a living breathing entity of life, essential to our own well being. We still have a chance to grow into responsibility human beings with the potential to become caring individuals who takes our ‘footprint’ on earth seriously. If not, we may never repair the harm we’ve placed upon on our own beloved planet, we call HOME. And, if so, we don’t have an right to eject our human-virus onto other planets

We are illogical but we can learn to be so much more. Sadly, we have the potential, but never seem to use it for the betterment of mankind.

Intervention

WWIII
Leaders had hit an all time low as world war became an imminent threat. Military in China, Russia, United States and North Korea flexed their warfare missiles, like a dominant “Silverback” gorilla protecting his females and offspring. 

The United Nations Security Council gave its last effort towards a good-will attempt to solve this precarious and eminent breakdown in communication. Russia, United States and North Korea stood their ground, defiant of each other. Russia’s selfish goal to protect a Syrian dictator boiled over, as an chemical warfare attack on defenceless children was the last straw to a peaceful resolution.  

Each powerhouse country took necessary steps by moving their warships closer to the eminent threat. The arrogant North Korea leader thought he was the most powerful of them all, only to realize China was watching them a lot closer then thought. It was clear China and United States weren’t going to allow North Korea to cause any collateral damage.  

But Russia was indeed another issue altogether. 

Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany and France supported the United Nations Security Council effort to resolve this increasingly grave situation, hoping President Putin would realize this kind of conflict would end up detrimental to everyone concerned. During the last pitch council meeting, it was reminded a Nuclear War wouldn’t benefit anyone, leaving the complete destruction of earth, as we know it. 

The meeting looked promising when President Putin took the initiative to show up for this crucial meeting-of-the-minds, all in an effort to resolve their differences. In the end, President Putin only wanted respect and welfare for his people. It was a pivotal point to include Putin in as part-of-the-team, inviting him as an alliance to the betterment of mankind. 

The moment was propitious, as their efforts met with seemingly success, until one fateful dark night on August 4th, 2020 ( the eve before, marking the unforgettable time in history when the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima), something went terribly wrong.  

Along the Mediterranean, in the middle-eastern coastline of Syria, an American attack submarine equipped with nuclear weapons from the Virginia class (SSN-744), was hit by a Russia Kirov-class battlecruiser. Tensions were high as each superpowers exercised their right to territorial control, until the Russia battlecruiser called the American’s bluff, taking action, destroying the Virginia class submarine.  

There was no turning back now – it had reached DEFCON 1. 

All talks seized to exist as declaration of war by the United States on the Soviet Russia Empire was announced on August 5th, 2020. WWIII was enviable. Just adding insult to injury, North Korea launched a nuclear bomb towards Israel but was surprisingly intercepted by Japan. The world as we knew it turned in complete chaos, from protests to vandalism.  

World unrest had reached its limit.

Just when you thought nothing else could possibly go wrong, it happened. What was thought to be an impeding threat from the cycle of our Sun, known as a geomagnetic storm, most commonly referred to as CME ( Corona Mass Ejection), it turned into something more then we could ever imagined. Experiencing a worldwide blackout, scientists shrugged their shoulders, placing blame on the Sun. 

But it was more then that…way more.

Black Angels by Bari Demers
Within seconds, every form of telecommunications seized to exist. It was soon realized this occurrence was something different, very different. For the first time in human history the world stood still, crippled from any kind of action. Satellites began falling out of orbit, while aircrafts across the globe malfunctioned. Manmade hardware literally rained across earth’s atmosphere, including the massive International Space Station. As much as NASA engineers tried everything in their power to keep ISS in orbit, it crashed and burned into the atmosphere, hitting the ocean landscapes below. Lucky for the incredible training and fast action of the astronauts, they quickly aborted the mission. It was unreal ; no explanation of the horrific failures, it just happened. 

All seemed lost; then it happened. 

In our dismay of disbelief, a shadow of darkness filled the horizons of the earth, engulfing any source of natural light. What was it? What could possibly be so big it would fill the earth a hundred thousand times over? We waited, unsure of our fate, desperately trying to focus on the impending dark globe. OMG ! It looked like…yes…no it can’t be, but there it was.  NO GOD!  It can’t be…Jupiter?  

For GOD sakes, it’s scientifically impossible! 

It was surreal but there it was, Jupiter.  If I didn’t see it for myself, I would have never believed it.  Is it really possible, after billions of years, Jupiter’s gravitational pull finally grabbed earth?  Without warning the dark blue sky filled with the most deleterious electrically storm I have ever seen in my lifetime. Awestruck by its force and beauty I was scared, because deep inside I felt the looming danger. Catching us completely off guard (with abrupt force) gigantic thunderbolts rocked the earth in a fiery display of power, knocking us off the ground in one clean swoop. Shaken, I got up to see an image within the thunderbolts themselves. Yes, there THEY were. OMG ! Had the scriptures been right all this time ?  

Revelations 20 : 8 “…he will gather them together for battle–a mighty army, as numberless as sand along the seashore.”

Have the GODS returned?  

Throughout the world, out of the thunderbolts came these giants of men and women, like the Greek mythology of gods and goddesses.  

In the likeness of man THEY came.

Each one spoke with a thunderous voice and said,” WE have come to Intervene. This is your final intervention. Your tribulations of time has come to an end.  All these things we do , All the things we are , All that humanity is, will soon be forgotten, like the sands of time. With the little time humans had on earth, throughout the birth of this wondrous planet WE call EARTH, the Children of the GODS from the HEAVENS have failed. Yes – WE have failed. Our HUMAN creation has failed US all. Maybe WE should have taken more time to nurture your growth and developed YOU into an understanding peaceful species. Maybe then, YOU would have the courage to understand each other, to realize the fate of humanity and how precious YOU really are.”

In unison, THEY paused. 

Their golden eyes stared aimlessly, as each locks of hair snapped the air like lightening bolts, and then their molten lips spoke,”YOU were our last hope as WE heavily relied on our creation to further themselves away from the disease and destruction of POWER, releasing YOU from what WE have been plagued for the past 150 millennium. It was our hope WE were transforming YOU into a new improved species for the betterment of humanity and with us in our eternity.

BUT, WE have failed you as YOU have failed us. 

The GODS of the HEAVENS have made a ruling not in your favour but in respect to the birth of MOTHER EARTH. WE will rid the planet WE called EARTH from the atrocities of what WE call HUMAN BEINGS, to better the Cosmic life of creation. 

YOU were not the only ones in the universes but one of many. WE had hope in our creation. YOU were to become the best of the best, the best of all creations, being an example of them all. But now, this is no longer the case. Like droplets of water lost forever into the depths of the ocean, so will humanity be forever lost and forgotten.  

As the rats scurry to land afraid of water, YOU too will run for safety of the lands, but there will be no place to run, as it is said in the words of the GODS of the HEAVENS,”And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”

It is written. 

In the beginning WE had made man. In the beginning WE had destroyed man by the floods above and below. WE made a promise to YOU WE would never flood the earth again. But now, in light of how YOU treat each other, WE have no choice but to bring the ends of the earth today, this hour, this time of forevermore.  

May GOD OF ETERNITY have mercy upon your souls – this is mankind’s final intervention. WE are the BLACK ANGELS – the GODS of the HEAVENS

PS  Happy Easter Sunday!  Read below why I wrote my latest science-fiction story. 

Black Angels by Bari Demers
Meaning and Reasoning

I was so troubled by the recent unforgivable deaths of defensive Syrian children who were gassed by chemical warfare, I had to write my feelings of despair. How is it possible one man can purposely murder his people and children ? 

I pleaded for the Russia government to take note of the poor children purposely murdered and hesitate to help this Syrian dictator anymore. Our children and grandchildren are what we live for, striving towards the betterment of mankind. In the end, we all want the same things, so why can’t we do it on a constructive peaceful way ?  

Why must we all go to war over religion, oil or land ? 

I believe we can be better for our children. I believe and trust our leaders will do their best to protect our children and grandchildren, by giving them a world of peace, a world to live in without fear, a world without famine or bloodshed and a world of freedom. 

In CANADA we are celebrating our 150th year and I’m so proud to be in country that promotes freedom of choice, freedom to care for our children in a safe environment, and to be able to work together as all Canadians, no matter our religion, race, colour or heritage. 

Most importantly we are Canadian first – We are all together working towards the betterment of mankind. 

So, please President Vladimir Putin, I pleaded for a better way to the future of all our children. I plead for your humanity of the human race. I also plead for all the powers of each country to come to a peaceful solution with President Putin. After all, we are human beings. All we have to do is to look inside ourselves and realize we humans are indeed a wonderful species, with the ability to change for the good.  

Let’s do it for our children. Let’s do it for all those children who have died for no reason. Lets do it for the Syrian children, fearing for their lives. Let’s do it in memory of my little Jenni Michelle Demers, who never had the chance to enjoy life, we all take for granted. 

I’m heartbroken – we are human beings – let’s strive for the betterment of humanity. PEACE
