becomingthearchetype Metal quilt. The BTA shirt on the middle right is one of 2 shirts that were the first ones we ever made, for our first tour in Feb. 2005 (w/ Showbread, The Showdown, Mortal Treason, Point Zero who later became War of Ages). The one on the bottom was one we hand-made in southern Cali in 2006 on the Demon Hunter tour because we'd sold out of a trailer-load of shirts the night before. That tour included Zao, August Burns Red, and Spoken. 2k people were at that SoCal show. Good times. 4w
  •   nathanieljesse I still have the one in the middle right as well as a few other shirts of yours from that time! Still rock them all the time as well. 4w
  •   sniffaxxx Those tours sound awesome. Wish I got to see them! 4w
  •   deansvinylcollection I played that Demon Hunter show at club retro. It was a total blast! 4w

  •   xdamienx My very first band merch was a BTA shirt from Hot Topic... The bring your own beard tour was the first show I ever went to.... My dad @thegergnella drove me out to Cleveland, GA on a school/work night to catch it. That show created a new lifestyle for him and myself both. After that I got the chance to tour with a couple of bands, play Cornerstone, book close to a hundred shows, and attend many many many more. We spent countless hours and nights driving to shows and making a lifetime worth of friends and memories, and @becomingthearchetype played an insanely large role in that. This shirt made me want to throw that out there haha. 4w
  •   becomingthearchetype Dude, that's an amazing story, @xdamienx! 4w

becomingthearchetype On Wednesday, we had Mitri Raheb at our church. About 200 people listened to Raheb share about the plight of the Palestinian people. As president and founder of Dar al-Kalima University as well as senior pastor of Christmas Church in Bethlehem, Palestine, his words carried weight, some of which are mentioned here. "Israeli bulldozers have been leveling Palestinian families' homes minutes after they're forced out in the middle of the night. This is so that Israel can build an illegal wall and block Palestinians into tiny spaces, walled off from green spaces. Our kids grow up not experiencing Spring because Israel built the wall with the trees and water on their side." "In 2002, Israel invaded Bethlehem. They'd only let us out of our houses for 3 hours a day. One day, my wife and daughter were checking on my wife's mother across town and during their visit, Israel changed the curfew to a 2 hour limit. My wife didn't know and as she walked home with our daughter, Israeli soldiers saw them and opened fire, the bullets missing them by inches." "Palestinian kids are now dying with bad kidneys, as Israel has pumped all the good water out of our land to use for themselves. Gaza has become a huge, open air prison. If you were caught on the wrong side of the wall (like the Berlin Wall), you cannot escape. America needs a president with the guts to say 'Tear this wall down, Mr. Netanyahu.'" "Our newly-weds and young parents don't travel anymore. Even as newly married, couples are not allowed to travel together. And parents with an infant must also travel separate, while the infant is required to travel with the father." "It is as if two people start talking about splitting a pizza. While they're talking, one guy starts eating the pizza. After some negotiating and more eating, most of the pizza is gone and the other guy is simply trying to battle for a slice to exist." Pray for the peace of the people there who've lived there for thousands of years. They've been displaced, oppressed, tortured, detained, harassed and killed in the name of a foreign people with powerful allies and aggressive, selfish policies. 2mon
  •   fabrixioskull sad!!! religion and money rule the world 2mon
  •   myslantedview It was a privilege to hear him speak. 2mon
  •   jkendall007 Very interesting ever read Son Of Hamas? @becomingthearchetype it's a very good book about a Palestinian man whose father was one of the founders of the terrorist organization, he does a very good job of showing both sides of the story, neither side is exactly innocent. The problem is that over their it is tit for tat and both Israel and some Palestinians don't always respond in the right way, anyways great book, you should read it. 2mon
  •   jkendall007 What's really bad too is a lot of conservative churches support Israel blindly 2mon
  •   worth5pigs Wow. I wish I could share this. It's very inspiring. 2mon
  •   milahugo12 That's so sad but I'm so glad you guys posted this! 2mon
