Just look at this in a different perspective. You should consider yourself lucky to have woken up so early in life. One less in the world of
sheeple. I went through life thinking everyone was good, even after a few house invasions, muggings, etc. But I never thought your own government
could do harm, in order to advance their agenda. It wasn't until the last election (and I am embarrassed to say I voted for the Son of a Bush twice)
that I realized something was wrong.
Before, the only source of information was a library. Today, you have the internet and ATS, and many other sources. Yes, take things with a grain of
salt. However, having the knowledge is power. I recently had my first child, and like you with your sister, I recently took my daughter to the park
and as I was swinging her and she was laughing away, I choked up, for the same reason you choked up. So this has nothing to do with age. I'm more
than double your age and get choked up for the same reason. All I can do is raise my children and hope we can insulate them from most of this. I bet
this resembles when you found out about Santa Claus. You want your sister to believe in that good.
At any rate, try not to internalize this too much. The worse thing is that you will see that 99.9% of the people you know are just in a deep sleep
and don't want to be awaken. Consider yourself lucky that you know. As most have said above: You are one of us. You have people who understand
you. Yes, be careful on writing about "taking people out". The Secret Service has demonstrated they act on this. I know it's tought to keep
certain thoughts to yourself but you're better off. Just think that more and more people are waking up every day.
Have some fun. Life is about stages. I remember a quote from the Steven Spielberg's series "Taken": "Kids should only worry about baseball".
You display a high level of maturity, unlike most of your peers. I commend you for finding the truth. Before I say goodbye, think about this: I
would rather keep me mind open by wonder than have it closed by belief.
