Chinese Communists shut down Christian school with special needs kids
In September, Chinese Communists shut down a Christian school in Beijing’s Tongzhou district, leaving 100 students schoolless.
China Aid reports that the authorities have now ordered “Golden Reed Kindergarten & Primary School Learning Center” to vacate its property.
Thanks to its Christian background, some students who were discriminated against in public schools, such as those with Autism or special needs, had been able to get a solid education there.
All religious schools need to submit to the control of the Chinese Communist Party.
Luke 6:22 says, “Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.”
Syrian man stabbed three Germans on train

Abortion pills leads to thousands of hospitalizations
Abortion pill complications arising from incomplete abortions in Britain seem to mirror recently published data from a study in the U.S., reports Live Action News.
Kevin Duffy, a former Global Director at MSI Reproductive Choices, an abortion chain, tweeted that 1 in 17 pregnant women who obtained an abortion pill in the UK were subsequently treated for complications and needed hospital treatment arising from an incomplete abortion. Some of these women needed surgical abortions to evacuate the dead baby. Others had been treated for hemorrhages.
Duffy secured this information through a freedom of information request.
Biden passes trillion-dollar infrastructure bill
On Saturday, President Joe Biden hailed Congress’ passage of his $1 trillion infrastructure package after fractious fellow Democrats resolved a months-long standoff, reports The Associated Press.
In a vote of 228-206 late Friday, the House passed the measure prompting prolonged cheers from the relieved Democratic side of the chamber.
Thirteen Republicans, mostly moderates, supported the legislation while the six most liberal Democrats opposed it.
The Republican Congressmen who voted for Biden’s bloated bill include: Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Rep. Andrew Garbarino of New York, Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio, Rep. John Katko of New York, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York, Rep. David McKinley of West Virginia, Rep. Tom Reed of New York, Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey, Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, and Rep. Don Young of Alaska.
Crowd surge at Houston rapper concert killed eight people
Two teenagers and at least five people in their 20s were among the eight victims who were killed after a crowd surged Friday night during rapper Travis Scott’s sold-out Astroworld music festival in Houston, reports NBC News.
Of the 25 people who were taken to hospitals, 13 remained hospitalized Saturday. More than 300 people were also treated throughout the event Friday at an on-site field hospital.
Fire Chief Samuel Peña explained what happened.
PENA: “We had an attendance of approximately 50,000 to the Travis Scott AstroWorld Festival. At approximately nine o’clock, 9:15pm, the crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage. That caused some panic and started causing some injuries. People began to fall out, become unconscious.”
Timothy Perez, one of the concert attendees, shared this first-hand account on Fox News.
PEREZ: “We were just trying to fight for our way out. It was tragic. It was unexpected. It was scary, a frightening, frightening experience.”
And Joseph Gonzalez, another concertgoer, shared what he witnessed.
GONZALEZ: “There was passed-our bodies being held up because it was so compact. And there were deaths right in front of us.”
FOX INTERVIEWER: “What was in front of you?”
GONZALEZ: “Dead bodies in front of us.”
The Daily Mail reports that one concertgoer, named Basil Mirza Baig, took to Facebook Saturday announcing that his brother, Danish Baig, died at the Astroworld concert.
He wrote, “My brother was killed in this horrendous event that was managed poorly and supervised by such horrible people. People were trampled, walked, and stomped on. My brother tried to save my sister-in-law from these horrendous acts that were being done to her. In the process, he lost his life.”
Baig also accused the rapper of provoking the chaos by “calling people to the stage to jump into the crowd” and for “not stopping the show.”
Students sing to teacher with Stage 4 cancer outside hospital
And finally, a Wisconsin teacher with stage 4 cancer received a heartwarming surprise from her young students, reports SunnySkyz.com.
For 45 years, she’s taught generations of students and continued to teach this school year while battling cancer. But now, the cancer has advanced, and instead of returning to her classroom, Carol needs hospice care.
Before moving to hospice, one of her fellow teachers and friends wanted Carol to be able to reunite with her students once again. Dozens of students showed up outside of Aurora St. Luke’s on November 3rd.
Carol greeted her current and former students, including some of their parents whom she also taught. They sang a number of worship songs to her, including this classic.
