greetings,

i have this picture of Jonhoi, and i was smoking herb very much wondering what do all his medals mean that he wears on himself? It wont let me paste any pictures of H.I.M that i found on yahoo & google, but the I can go see. Anyone know what they signify, i have a strong guess one medal might be of H.I.M fighting against Italy, but he has alot of H.I.M. And also i heard that when Haile Selassie coronated he was given more than 80 names from the bible and maybe from other scriptures. Thats amazing, i have strong feeling he was given the names on isiah 9, wonderful counseler, everlasting father,Almighty God, prince of peace.
