This deserves a respectful answer, to the shameful way we were ALL treated by WatchTower.
It is NOT a kind thing to scare little children, let alone, adults.
In 2002, a sister, DOB 1955, a born in, was showing me her new custom home and all the hiding places they created, to hide literature.
An older sister, born-in, DOB 1928, had kept her mom's collection of baby diapers to use as necessary First Aid bandages, for when the persecution hit and we would be tortured. DOD 2011, with a house and drawers brimming with things to be used to help the Brothers and Sisters make it through the Great Tribulation.
A sister, DOB 1936, was berating herself, several years ago, for not being prepared for the great tribulation. She has a large property and intends to bury her mother's good China dishes, so they don't get broken, then dig them up after "the all clear"..... after Armageddon.
