Jerome Roos:

"it’s unmistakable now that the Earth upon which they stand is trembling. Outraged at a world that perpetuates injustice and that steadily leads itself to ruin, the people are starting to make a stand. If you listen closely, you can hear their roar emanating from the streets down below. If you look hard, and you are willing to see, you will witness a powerful benevolent force rising up from below, spreading its arms like wings of fire and crying out in indignation at the out-of-touch business class above. They are ready to reclaim a long-lost childhood dream and take to the skies — breaking the laws of nature to write a new chapter in the history of mankind." (
