As I'm on ATS this morning I couldn't help but remember 9/12/01. How it seemed everyone around me wanted revenge and were so afraid of being
attacked again. I remember being so shocked that I couldn't leave the T.V. I was just fixated on watching MSM. That day the world became different,
more afraid, more angry, more watchful. I remember the immediate head spin by most Americans toward the people in power to save us from tyranny and
how we trusted them so much.
Now, almost 10 years later. I sit hear and wonder, where's the peace? Does anyone? Seems to me that everyone is more on alert than ever before. Yet
we have all this intel circulating (Fusion centers, etc.) by "trust worthy" neighbors. Why shouldn't I be able to rest knowing that I'm being
protected, being watched over? Just by propaganda alone I'm being told to just let it happen, too trust. When I think I've seen a "watchful
neighbor" so far, I've noticed them to be the most fearful, detracted, isolated, hardly ever with a smile. If I do see a smile it's more of a
"smerk" It seems their world is quite different than mine. I feel sorry for their burden. I can't imagine the things they know. Skeletons seem to
be in the closet for a reason. Can any one imagine the dirt they know. Knowledge obtained through fear and dismay? Being flooded constantly by
self-inflicted curiosity in the name patriotism. That could very easily take over a persons whole being. Consume them entirely. I wouldn't want that
kind of burden for myself that's for sure.
Here I think is a real dilemma. We have fellow Americans who agreed with best intentions(keep on mind) to fight terrorism. They are the local leaders
to peace, yet they don't seem at peace. Why? We are told they are doing a great job. We see news reports of bad guys getting busted. Their control
should be honored right? They are heroes.
In my opinion peace is in the eye of the beholder. Human beings always want to look through the eyes of another so they can forget they have eyes of
eEveryone is guilty in their own right one way or another. Whether in the closet or out, skeletons are what they are. Everyone deserves forgiveness.
Love they neighbor because they probably want to love you back peacefully.
The largest most dominant rule that the universe provides is this; " What goes around, comes around". No one stands alone. We are all connected. May
there be peace on earth and good will toward men. Happy New Years!
