Looking Back & Looking Forward

// September 11th, 2007

6 years ago today, it was a beautiful, clear and sunny day…and then the sky fell upon us.

Today, it is T-storming and pouring torrentially. The gods must be angry.

It’s been 6 years since the tragedy of 9|11. Despite the fact that we still do not observe this day as a national day of memoriam, it is a time to reflect on our past and our future and how they were affected by that one day in our collective history. When I reread my memoir from 6 years ago, I am deeply saddened, dismayed, and ashamed of what has transpired since then.

Our government has engaged in occupation wars with no end in sight. They give us false reasons, circular logic, and tell us we are safer while putting us in fear and innocent people die every day overseas. Now they want war with Iran. Don’t let it happen again. I promise you it will result in both a political and military disaster that could threaten the well-being of our republic. There is too much at stake to allow these military/energy industrial elitist autocrats to continue to act barbarically in our name without recourse. They care not about you nor our soldiers, nor our country, they only care about themselves. Do not allow the ruling elite class continue to keep us under their thumb.

Remember Katrina and never forget 9|11.

She [America] goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy… She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force…. She might become the dictatress of the world. She would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit….
- John Quincy Adams

Fear is only as deep as the mind allows
