“How could this happen? How did we get to this point?” My mom sobs.
She does that a lot these days. If Dad was here, I know what he would say “Janie, WE did this,
We did this by doing nothing at all.” I used to not think so but as I get older I see that my dad was a wise man. Simple but wise.
I go over to mom and try to comfort her; I always try to bring out the best of the situation.
“Mom, it will all work out, you’ll see. Look on the bright side; you have a new place to stay. Me, Leslie and the boys are just down the
hall. We will get to see each other a lot more now…..
I will speak with the Supervisor again to see if there has been any word about Barry, Tony and David.” She has really been worried about my brothers
these past few months.
Since the reconstruction has started we have not seen or heard from them, well Mom hasn’t. I can not tell her what I know because it would put
her and my family in grave danger.
At least she has stopped crying now but for how long? “I have got to go mom, I don’t want to be late. They have me working at the North
Wall today. They want it finished by this time next week.”
“Robbie, you take care of yourself out there, please don’t anger anyone, you remember the last time……..”
How can someone forget something like that? Shame and humiliation was the least of it. They got their point across.
I learned quickly not to cause ripples in the water. One time being drug out into the square, stripped and beaten in front of God, my family
and friends was enough for me.
“Oh, I remember. You do not have to worry about that happening again, Love you, don’t forget to get your daily ration. You have not been
eating enough. If Sparky is working in the kitchen today, tell him to give you mine as well. I will grab something at the Wall”
“I will son, I love you too.”
I leave mom’s apartment and go five doors down to my own. They are basic, no frills, they serve their purpose though. Leslie has already
left for work, Ryan and Reed should be in Academy now and Jordan should just be getting to High Academy.
Leslie and I tried our best to bring our boys up right. It really breaks my heart at the life they have now but at least they are living.
I work hard when I can to fight the indoctrination they are trying to drive into their skulls. It would probably be a lot worse than a public
beating if they new what I was telling the boys. I try and make sure that they do not forget. They need to remember how things were. They must not
I look at the clock, great, looks like I will have to run to get there in time. I grab my ID and leave the small apartment in a rush.
As I jog down the street I can not help but notice all of the down trodden faces. These people’s spirit has been taken away, they have no
hope. There’s Mr. James. He is looking right at me, I wave but he does not see me. That happens all too often now.
Our small “city” holds less than 10,000 but for many it may as well hold 1. They no longer care, they go through there daily mundane duties
most of the time without speaking to anyone. I guess they may fear they might slip up and say something that goes against the Commands.
I hear mom’s voice in my mind, “How could this happen? How did we get to this point?” Dad was right. We did this by doing nothing at all.
This happened right in front of us and we allowed it to happen. We were too busy with the entertainment they fed us to notice what was happening. I
often wonder if the ballgames, reality shows and all of the other little things were really worth it. Of course they weren’t but as they say
“Hind sight is 20/20.”
It does not take long to get to the North Wall and I still have a few minutes before I am late.
“There you are Mr. Green, I am so glad you could join us today.” Great! Frank is on duty this morning. He was one of the first to go over. No
fight, no arguments, nothing. He, like some others, felt that this was the only course of action to take in order to “Save Mother Earth”. He is
also part of the reason for my first beating. I have had a few but the public one is what helps me keep my mouth closed now. My boys watching me
being beat…………Oh well, best not dwell on that right now.
“I am not late Yet Frank, I still have five minutes………”
“Oh? Didn’t I tell you that today the shift was changing? All “employees” are required to be here 2 hours early and to stay 2 hours
late. Your daily and evening rations will be taken for this offence. Do not let it happen again”
“You never told me….”
“Yes Mr. Green? Something you would like to add?”
“That is wise Mr. Green. You will be clearing the brush outside the wall today. Please take extra care and only cut the marked brush and
trees. We should not be cutting any but we must make room for the lesser species. You are beginning to see that we are the lesser species aren’t
you Mr. Green? That the human race is a cancer to this planet?"
“Sure” I lie.
I get my ax and sheers from the trailer and start the long trek to the gate, out to where the other crew had left off.
As I walk my mind wanders.
How could this happen? How did we get to this point?
When they came in and explained what was GOING to happen and what was GOING to be done, Frank joined their ranks. I had enough one day and just told
him like it was.
“This is WRONG! They can not LEAGALLY DO THIS!! THIS IS NOT ABOUT PROTECTING THE PLANET FRANK, THIS IS ABOUT POWER!!!”
The next thing I know I am being drug to a dark room while he and a few of his yuppie friends take turns hitting me.
“This is really for your own good Mr. Green, best we take care of this now before things really get hard.”
He wasn’t joking. Things have gotten much worse since then. It started out soon after what we now know was a false flag event on 12-21-12.
The Government had it all set up and used the hype around the Mayan calendar to further their goals.
I can remember how I felt when the news flashed across the television screen, soon after the President held a press conference.
“My fellow Americans, NASA has just reported that there is major solar activity and they are predicting we will have several MAJOR solar
flares. I urge you, please do not take this lightly. They are predicting that these flares will be unlike anything we have seen in the past. We will
need to keep the internet and communication lines free for emergency responder use so as of now we will limit access for nongovernmental agencies. If
you are able please seek shelter, as I said these flares will be unlike anything we have experienced before. We have agents traveling through out the
U.S. as I speak. They will oversee the military that will be there to help in the aftermath of this global event. I have been in contact with most
of the world leaders and similar actions are being carried out in their countries. As soon as we are able we will return control of communications
back over to the people
......bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep” That was it, the television was nothing but static and white noise.
