During the convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses, nobody honked their horn, there was no road rage, nobody seemed to be upset, and nobody cut in front of the lines.”

    An employee in a hotel used by the delegates said: “I have seen many groups, but your organization is the crème de la crème. People seem to be happy and there is such a beautiful atmosphere!”
