You have not heard? The Lord is the God that lasts forever, creator of the earth

He will not fail to be.

His understanding is not of men, that it is not.

In strengthens the powerful, and increases the power of the weak.

Even the use of force weak, men fall

But those who hope in the Lord

Su fuerza renewed.

Expand their eagles like eagles, run and not faint.

They will walk and not be afraid.


Hold on, let's get you out of here.

16 before





Pass me.

Wait, I have something to tell you.

What thing Al?

A race to the top.

Hey cheater.

See you later.

- Hey

A hand?

I have it

Go stones.

- No, leave it.

What are they saying?

Children, steer clear of the cliff, dumb kids, do not play there.

Sanders are children, crazy like his father.

They dug the corner on Main Street

They put a sidewalk.

No longer recognize now.

And to you I no longer recognize you.

With my work I recognize when I go walking

It is as if he had died with you.

As if we had never existed

Well that's all I have for you today

Block it with your right Desmond

Alto me, you hear?

Because they are fighting?

- Since when they need a reason?

Tom here ...

Very good enough, and they saw and possibly going to hit whoever wins




Tom! Wake up, you hear me?

What the hell have you done?

- You can not hear me.

I'll get some ice.

Remove the basket.

I got it.

Al, Al you hear me?

When you hear me?


Our father, heaven, earth.

What did you do?

I'll hit you now know

I heard son?

- Sixth Commandment, Thou shalt not kill.


- Tom just please, a second peace for the child.

He has had enough.

Very well fill it with kisses, tell him that the world is a soft and gentle place.

When it will be fine.

I could have killed him.

- If you could.

The killing is the worst of all

Taking the life of another person is most degrading in the world

Nothing hurts more than his heart.

What the hell's going on.

You do not walk unless I say walk.

What the f*** is what happens!

- Mind your own business

I hate it.


Because he hates us so much?

No, he does not hate us.

He hates himself, sometimes

Your father did not used to be like

I wish they had known as before the war.

15 years later

Desmond we sound like?

Like a celestial choir of angels mom

Now, you know it's a sin to tell a lie especially in this place

Well I never said that angels sang

What's going on out, Desmond?

Get him.


We'll call an ambulance.

- There is no time

Joshua, wake up, fast.

You'll be fine, you'll be fine.

What do we have?

It seems an artery can have scissors? - Yes doctor.

Put some pressure on, you put this tourniquet?

- Yes doctor.

Good job, you may have saved the life of this boy.

Stay with us, you'll be fine.

Yes, stay with me, you'll be fine

Medical examination is there, here's to donate blood.

You're good?

Oh no, it's not mine, I'm fine, thanks for asking Miss.

What do you need?

- My belt.

I put it to the boy the accident, my pants are not well without it.

Well, I have not your belt. - Yes, I know Miss is there in the boy.

Ok, I'm here to take blood.

- I'll give you mine.


See that room with us, I'll call.

That, that room.

He had already sounded before blood sir?

- Dawson

My friends call me Dawson but never in the first time.

I always wanted to be a doctor but

I did not have much school.

I'm like my father.

Someone will pick you up?

- No miss, walk back.

Where do you live?

- Four Miss Hill.

It's far.

- Five to six miles, but short in the woods.

Seven out there.

Must much to like the forest.

- Yeah right.

Ok, put pressure there.

You're good?

- Yes.

Where will you also dressed and handsome?

- I met someone yesterday

A woman named Dorothy in the hospital, I'll marry her.

God Does she know?

- Not yet but by learning.

Have you ever talked to a woman?

One that is not family?

Tell her.

- Well then, come and give your brother a big hug.

Take your dirty hands on me.

Wish me luck mom.

- Good luck.

Next, take a seat.

It has already donated blood before? - Yes Miss I've already done

You're the boy's belt.

- Desmond, if Miss.

Desmond Well, we can not take your blood two days.

That's fine because I want mine back

What about you? - My blood, I need it back.

Well not work that way, we can not only regresrtela.

Well you have to, since you sting me with that needle my heart beats very fast.

Every time I think of you beats even faster

I had never heard that before, it's very corny.

- It is.

But how shy I am, I practiced all night.

It was not good?

- I did not say that.

What is the difference between an artery and a vein?

What are you talking about?

- The boy from the accident.

Spit blood arteries.

And veins?


I think you should practice your conversation boy and girl before coming

Probably yes.

I'll give you a book if you are interested.

About dating?

On blood.

Another medical question perhaps?

No, I was just thinking that you're the most beautiful thing I've ever seen

It must be because you see me in the dark

No, just're beautiful

You need to see where we go.

Sorry, I did not think you care.

No wonder.

I thought you might like.

It could be if you had requested.


Why did not you tell us anything?

- Because I know they had said no, and I know that what I do is good

And what about your command?

Not kill in a war.

It protects many guys who leave the church.

There is a war, and need men, working in the newspaper did not save this country.

It looks like a movie star

My boy.

Nice uniform, good hand.

It reminds me of when is the uniform and went to France

You remember?

- Do not talk about - what?

I'm just saying how good I looked in that uniform

You guys all seemed to think that.

Your mother I flirted with him

Not so good when you have a hole in the front of your jacket

A trigger input, on white.

Arty was wounded in the back, with all its organs and intestines outside front

Unpleasant everywhere

She clung to his uniform for a moment

He was lucky to be dead not to have seen his bloody uniform

Get out of my sight.

What are you? Part mountain goat?

You're going to help Desmond? Or will you leave me stranded?

I'll help you but it will cost you.

- What.

A kiss.

That is pure blackmail.

- If Miss so, but still it will be.

Last step, I will hold you too.


You're not going to slap me right? Why I'll fall and take you with me

Kiss me and find out


I must enlist

I can not stay here while they're all going to fight for me.

If you can.

- I do not have to.

I'll be a doctor, I'll see how to save people not to kill

I have to go to work be late

Dorothy, Dorothy.

So you're going to ask me to marry you or what?

Well I still do not know'd want?

Well, I would not know unless you ask.

Well I'm asking you.

With all my heart, will you marry me?

So yes, yes I will.


- When you have your first permit

But I'm still mad at you right now
