The following is a
quote from Jeanne Mills, a defector from Jim Jones' Peoples temple. She was
murdered a year subsequent to the Nov. 18, 1978 Jonestown suicides/murders
of 911 children, woman and men. She wrote this shortly before being murdered.
Listen to what she is telling the world:
"When you meet the friendliest people you have ever known, who introduce
you to the most loving group of people you have ever encountered, and you
find the leader to be the most inspired, caring, compassionate and understanding
person you have ever met, and then you learn the cause of the group is something
you never dared hope could be accomplished, and all of this sounds too good
to be true, it probably is too good to be true! Don't give up your education,
your hopes and ambitions to follow a rainbow."
