A veteran of what exactly? Surely it is not carrying a gun and fighting in a distant country terrorisng innocent people through orders of private
companies. No, I fight a different war, the war on the front-line. The war of the minds.
While not compared to real wars like soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, I am blessed to never having taken away a life or watch a friend
die. I don't think I could live with myself if I had. I am fortunate to having been turned away from the military. I am fortunate to still have my
In reality, I haven't really lost anything dear to me yet. But just because I have yet to lost anything, that doesn't mean I do not care, quite
contrary, I do care.I care every day as I think about what people around the world is going through. What honorable brave soldiers are going through.
What homeless people, starving children in third world countries are going through. Because I care, I believe I owe it to them, to let as much people
possible know, what is really going on.
The war I fight is in fact the most important war. It is a war to end all wars. A war to promote peace, freedom and just laws. The war to spread
the truth and hope that someday our leaders will wake up with a heart, and see, that the people do not want anymore wars. That we want a better
future, not just for us, but future generations.
Everyday I combat dis-info agents, trolls, people ridiculing me through verbal abuse. Everyday I watch the world events unfold, while trying to
fight back tears and not break down when I see a family torn apart, our oceans polluted, our rights being taken away, our constitution being spat on
by those in power, people losing their homes and their lives, police brutality getting out of hand, private companies trying to play God with our
food, our water or even the very air we breathe. I fight against Ignorance, I fight against lies. I fight for you, not because I have to, I fight it
because I choose to.
What do I have to gain? Nothing,
what do I ask for? Unity as a species, peace and equality.
For we all have the same color blood running through our veins.
We all have the responsibility to put a stop to those who are bent on destroying this world. We all have the responsibility to protect our family,
our friends and even that annoying neighbor who constantly borrows tools and never return them. We all have the responsibility to spread the voices of
soldiers who fight unjust wars, to spread their heartfelt concerns to those who have yet to know the truth. This is where it starts, through a small
ripple, to which one day will turn into a large wave. I write this, not just as an American, but also as a human being who is part of a much greater
collective of consciousness.
I write this in defense of our race as a species. I invite you all, to this thread, and think deeply on these words. For you too are veterans
fighting the same war I am. And despite the fact that I have received constant beatings through out my life because of a failed system, I hold no
grudges, I am even willing to forgive and hug the very people I am fighting against. Why? because he/she too is also a human being and part of the
same collective of consciousness that i am.
I hope and pray every time before I go to bed, that when I wake up, I wake up in a changed world. Where everyone gets along, but this will never be
achieved unless we all, trolls and conspiracy theorists
Whites, Blacks, Asians, Muslims and Hispanics, put aside our differences, and look at a much bigger picture. You are human too, and I know you all
feel, deep inside, that there is something wrong going on.
While I am guilty to sometimes thinking to just walking away, I somehow muster enough strength and energy to stay up all night to the point of
passing out, multitasking in various forums, creating videos, spreading love as a light-worker, defending those who are constantly bullied and just
trying to do my part. I have been at it every day since Dec last year. hoping I can somehow make at least a small bit of difference, by reaching at
person a day.
We owe it to those who lost their lives, we owe it to those U.S soldiers still fighting unjust wars, whom all they want is to go back home to their
families and not worry about losing their lives and never seeing them again. We owe it to our founders who wrote the United states constitution with
pride. We owe it to ourselves as a species of what could be an advanced race in this universe, if only we all stopped a moment to think and just
listen to each-others concerns while setting aside our egos.
I am a veteran, but most of all, I am also human. And I hope you read these words and close your eyes a moment while opening up your hearts and
listen deeply to what it says.
