Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all!
The Pope urged nations to share vaccines and work together to overcome the global pandemic in his annual Christmas message to the world:

Zontar: the Thing From Venus, 1966

Devil Times Five, 1974
A film by Sean MacGregor, David Sheldon (uncredited)
Human beauty has nothing to do with skin color. It’s the structure of the human face that makes the difference, whether the person is beautiful, ugly, presentable, or not. Let’s leave skin color aside once and for all, and don’t engage in racist conversations, because it’s definitely shameful.
Americans aren’t just white, but many races, including Native American, black, white, brown, Asian, and many more.
Calling black people in America African Americans is wrong, in my understanding. It gives the criminal white supremacist mind the idea of doing wrong to black people. They are not Africans any more. They’ve been living here, along side white people, for 400 years.
Black and brown Americans have had at least the same share in building this country, and maybe more so, than white Americans. Haven’t they arrived at the same time and done the all hard, difficult work?
And all Angels of the Great God aren’t white either. We make them white in our imagination. If angels exist we should imagine them with different colorS.
That is the reality. And if we think this way it may change human stupidity and nonsensical behavior in regards to our treatment of the human race and each other.
Please be advised, we must use this opportunity and the people’s frustration to make drastic, major, reasonable changes to the law. Stop killing and committing crimes against innocent black people.
Otherwise all the lives lost (Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Ahmaud Arbery, and many more, will be for nothing. We certainly do not want that to happen: enough is enough! Change is long, long over due.
I wish demonstrators all over the USA start celebrating the lost one’s lives, even by dancing in the streets and expressing their feeling in this manner—why not?
“With the novel coronavirus continuing to spread around the globe, health experts are emphasizing the importance of seeking medical advice if you notice any symptoms—by calling 811 (911 in the US) or your local health professional first before going to a clinic or hospital…” (Yahoo News)
Also, the management of Face Activities asks you to reconsider the elbow bump as a greeting during these trying times. Though it’s suggested as an alternative to the handshake to minimize physical contact, you must still make physical contact and stand too close (within the recommended three foot safety margin.)
Instead, we recommend making a gesture that suggests the idea of a handshake or sincere greeting, but without the proximity or physical contact of the elbow bump. Perhaps clasping both of your hands to mimic a hand shake, or bowing with palms together, as is a tradition in India?
What ever you choose, keep up frequent hand washing, and social distancing. We wish you health and happiness in these challenging times.
The The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website has an enormous amount of important information on the Coronavirus outbreak, and how to stay as safe and healthy as possible. We recommend visiting and taking a look.
We at Face Activities mourn the tragic loss of athlete, sportsman and entrepreneur Kobe Bryant, and his daughter, in an aviation accident. Our hearts go out to his family, friends, and fans.

Dear Madam Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, United States Congress:
The management team of Face Activities and I would like to congratulate you on regaining the Speakership. We hope you continue to be a major advocate for improving the lives of Americans, including immigration reform. And We believe by working in a bipartisan manner, we can achieve success.
The immigration system in the United States is broken and needs major reform. I have some ideas that may help to facilitate this reform process, if they are accepted and utilized by congress:
I believe that if these conditions become part of comprehensive immigration reform, then we have a chance for the reforms to pass. Otherwise, public opinion, especially among the many concerned American citizens, won’t allow a comprehensive reform to happen, and the bill will go to the archive once again.
