She loved that compass.
She didn't play with the other toys for months.
We would take her to the park and she would take her compass and line up the little red arrow north.
She would walk that way, holding the little compass.

SOC Trevante Cole, Task Force Saxo.
I just wanna get on a plane back to the US.
Yes, sir.
Yeah, okay.
We shouldn't have left the road.
I know what we should do.
There's food and soldiers and People.
People can help us.
Where are we even going? Mom.
I'm hungry.
I'm hungry too, sweetie.
There's no one here.
It's too big.
It's warm.
You'll grow.
iScenes are pouring in now from all around the world.
/i iA lot of this we have coming in over the wire.
/i iA time of celebration and reunion /i i people leaving shelter into the open/i ias this alien enemy has been defeated almost overnight,/i ialmost as quickly as they arrived.
/i iPeople now look up at the sky and they see victory.
/i iThat is the word for today.
/i - iAnd there are celebrations /i - What are we doing? What are we doing? - We can go home.
- No, we can't go home.
Yes, we can.
Look at everyone.
Why are we even here? What are we doing? We're surviving.
Why? Mommy? - What's that? - It's a TV.
What's on it? Nothing.
Are you talking about Daddy? - No, no.
We were talking about - Surviving.
Mom is telling me why we're hiding from people.
Why are we hiding? Because sometimes, when everything seems quiet and nice and safe, and you feel like you can trust that, that's when You have a voice inside you.
It's always there.
Sometimes it's very, very quiet, but you have to listen to it.
'Cause that voice in you is all you can trust.
And my voice is telling me, "Not yet.
Not yet.
" You understand? Do we live here now? No, we don't live here.
We can sleep here tonight.
Then where? Nowhere.
Because it isn't safe.
Because Mom's voice says.
You want to be somewhere else without me? I'm not leaving you.
And you aren't leaving me.
You will never leave my side.
I won't let that happen.
Wherever we're together is home.
Tonight, this is home.
Okay? Here.
Go make a bed.
You didn't look for him.
I didn't see him.
I did.
I did.
Why'd you leave him? He told us to.
You just do whatever he says? No.
I don't do what anyone says.
Then why should I do what you say? Because I'm keeping you alive.
You were right.
Those people wanted to kill us.
They will, if we aren't smart.
We are being tested.
The world wants to test us to see if it can break us.
But it can't.
Yeah, well it did.
iThat is the word for today.
/i iAnd there are celebrations like this taking place all over the world.
/i iIt really is something special,/i ia moment of shared worldwide victory/i iunlike any the world has ever known in its history.
/i You're walking alone.
They say it's safe now.
It looks that way.
Where are you trying to walk? The train isn't running.
The station.
It's very damaged.
It will take time for the trains to run again.
You'll need a car.
I don't need a car.
There's nowhere to stay tonight either.
A lot of bloodshed up there.
Police now.
Cleaning up.
You're welcome to stay in the temple.
If you observe the rules.
I have beer.
And internet.
First thing they do isn't clean up the blood or the bodies.
You should've seen them all, two hundred people working together, fixing cables to get their internet back.
You're alone too.
Our Osho believed all this was a sign.
This "fall of the physical world" was the Buddha's greatest test of the mental and spiritual world.
A test of mastery over reality.
He meditated without food.
Without water.
As the world fell, he committed fully to the teaching of the Buddha.
He withdrew into the world of the mind.
And? Did he find nirvana? Hmm.
In a way.
He starved to death.
In that room over there.
And the other monks? They ran.
Aliens invading really has a way of testing your beliefs.
And now, you believe in beer.
I believe this was a test.
Maybe they came here to take everything we have, to take our world because we've taken it for granted.
We worry about the past.
The future.
We don't enjoy what we have while we have it.
Monks are worst of all.
We live only in the mind.
We deny ourselves physical pleasures.
It's a waste.
A waste of this world of beer these chips Now I enjoy everything in this world.
Especially weed.
And you? What do you believe? Me.
I believe in memory.
Not memory of the past, but memory of possibility.
Beer is fine.
But nothing is better than a dream.
So you live in your head too.
Maybe you should be the monk.
To be a monk, you have to let go of the past.
Right? "Nekkahamma.
" To be free of desire.
That's true freedom.
They say.
And you got from Afghanistan to here after the flights were stopped? There's blood on your vest there.
Yours? Some.
Your squad was lost in an encounter.
One of the first.
Was that your only encounter? No.
You fought one? A few of 'em.
And you survived, when your whole squad was lost? My squad wasn't there when we fought.
How did the aliens move? Together? What do you mean? Describe it.
All alien life and craft went dead at nuclear detonation.
The tests they've done on these show that they're identical, each one of them, coded.
" Describe it.
How did you stop them? I didn't.
So then what happened? They stopped pursuit? Chose a new target? They were after one thing.
What? Terraforming.
Excuse me? That's what we think they were doing.
Did you see 'em spread this substance? It metabolizes, releases gas into the atmosphere, changes the air.
Is that what it did? Looks like you got all your answers in here.
Aren't I supposed to fill out some form so I can get on a transport and go home? All right.
Let's get you transport, Chief Cole.
Thank you.
Do you want to say goodbye? You have a few moments.
Jamila! Mum? - Mum! - My baby girl! Can you believe it's over? I'm going home.
Was only supposed to be here two days.
Then this.
Only been a week since I saw my family, but feels like forever.
You? Yeah.
How long's it been? Two years.
/i I love you, Daddy.
You taught me how to ride a bike.
And you got me ice cream even when Mommy said no.
And you were the bad breath monster.
It was funny.
And I love you.
That was great, sweetheart.
Dad It's okay.
I'm sorry.
You have nothing to be sorry about.
You get my message? - What? - My messages.
Wha What? I love you.
You're all I love.
I got your letters.
Stop, stop, stop.
I just got home.
I see a strange man broke into my house.
I might call 911.
But 911 isn't working, so maybe I'll just let him go.
But I What if he, uh What if he doesn't wanna go? Well, then I'll kick his ass and throw him out.
'Cause he broke some things around here.
And what if he's willing to fix 'em? He can't just put it all back together.
A new job.
Yeah? A new job? Yeah.
- You mean it? - I'm here.
All right.
This yours? Nah.
- Ooh.
I'ma run quick, babe.
- Yeah.
" Hey.
Baby, look.
I wish you would just calm down and listen.
All I do is listen.
You never shut the fuck up.
I don't wanna fight anymore.
I think we just need some time apart.
Some time apart? Yeah, you try it.
You try and walk out that door.
You see what happens.
John, he can hear us.
You think I fucking care what he hears? Mum? Dad? There you are.
I was looking for you Looking at the stars? You didn't open your gift.
