Jose Sanchez saw an UFO at 6 a.m. in his hometown Zihuatanejo. The UFO crashed into a mountain on high speed. 9:30 a.m., others similar UFOs were flying around.

Saint Jude Thaddeus, thank you for the happiness you gave me. I was looking for a partner so long and then I met Enrique, a boy from the capital. We began to date. I found the real love with him. Before him I had been treated very badly and bullied. My father had even kicked me out of house at midnight with a thunderstorm outside.
