SOMEONE HAS TO SAY THIS
When I see Cheney and (Rinfield) Rumsfeld, and W on TV, I want to scream and throw up all at once. The deep wound these men have inflicted upon our nation and world is so deep we are all still bleeding from it. Nothing they have done since 911 has even remotely come close to defending us against so-called, terror. Rather, they have terrorized us more than a hundred 911’s. They have planted the seeds of the destruction of our nation with their greed and recklessness. Now we are reaping the harvest of economic ruin and global disrespect.
If we had used the energy and treasure of the last ten years to help remedy the Global Warming we now see, what a different world we could have made. What a respected nation we would have been. If we had used our energy and treasure to reduce the unnatural fear and blindness created by the NRA, what a sane nation we would have become.
I know others have felt this, but are not allowed to say it out loud. What these men have done has destroyed a generation of young men and women who are so damaged, they came home only to commit suicide for what they knew was a bloody murderous task they could not live with after coming out of the drug induced coma they had all been put in. It was Viet Nam all over again.
WHY HAVE WE NOT SAID IT. I remember screaming, NOT IN MY NAME at the outset of the genocide venture only to be called unpatriotic, traitor or worse. Now those words are used to quiet any voice that wants gun control and sensible regulation that would help quail the murder of our children and others who find themselves rattling the nerves of a “stand your ground” citizen.
It sounds like the powers that be have lost their minds. Everything that would lift us up as a nation is rejected, while everything that would drag us deeper into the rabbit hole is held up like a banner of honor. If you think about it, it is as if someone with a lot of power has deliberately set out to destroy us as a nation.
“Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do”. This prayer is so appropriate and one we all should be praying for the world leaders who are complicit in this. They all have blood on their hands. While they accuse others of being terrorists, they are terrorizing us.
I know there is an answer to this that they have overlooked. While they tout their “religious” beliefs like a get-out-of-jail-free card, we the people can begin to “humble ourselves and pray”. Not in any particular way, but pray, meditate, chant, zone out or what ever we chose to touch that higher place of sanity and peace. We need to deliberately saturate the higher realms with our petitions so greatly that we know we have been heard and answered. And we need not to ever stop, because what has been done to our children, our hearts and minds and our economy began with no obvious thought to the consequences of their actions.
Let this be how we answer this dilemma. Let this be the answer to our feeling of helplessness. This is the true power. Power that doesn’t take money to demonstrate. We can still be a force for peace and love. We can still make a difference in our world. We can move heaven with our collective positive energy of prayer and meditation. We have to, there is nothing else between us and the wolves at the gate but this. We can be the ones we’ve been waiting for. Lets start today.
