He turned and finally studied where he stood, catching every detail that had been described. “You see, Admiral,” de Torres said. “It is as if God Himself directed us here.” His old friend was right. It did seem that way. Be as courageous as a leopard, as light as an eagle, as fast as a deer, and as strong as a lion to do the will of your Father in heaven. Wise words. “Come,” he said to the others. “Let us pray that the secret of this day will long stay hidden.”

Brian Ayres shared a quote
Love Your Enemies by Arthur C Brooks
“We don’t have an anger problem in American politics. We have a contempt problem. . . . If you listen to how people talk to each other in political life today, you notice it is with pure contempt. When somebody around you treats you with contempt, you never quite forget it. So if we want to solve the problem of polarization today, we have to solve the contempt problem.”
Arthur C Brooks

Great plot but end was a tad anti-climactic.
