Five Years in the Awakening

Five years ago we were attacked.

Since that time, the Earth has flown nearly 3 billion miles around the sun, and a new world order has been brought about. The United States that the world loved and mourned for and looked up to has become the United States that lies, that tortures, that holds secret trials, that spies on its own citizens, that doesn't show much sense in international politics but is all too willing to kill on a mass scale, all in the name of freedom and fighting "terrorism."

How far we've come. - MediaGirl -


For what it's worth, in my humble opinion at least, the tragedy five years ago has helped in bringing about the great awakening of the people. Tragedies have a way of doing that you know! Through the horrors, suffering, and grief which are attached to disasters, people move one step closer in the growth of a world community built upon truth rather than deceipt. Is the terrorstorm we have been thrown into over the last five years necessary for the people's enlightenment, the spreading of truth, and the growth of our communities? I believe it was unfortunately necessary for our growth as human beings. Or perhaps I'm socially and intellectually imbalanced and merely dreaming of some parallel world?

The secret societies speech by JFK back in April of 1961, should have been an eye opening, social awakening moment in our history. But the people chose to ride the consumerism wave and advance their accumulation of "stuff" rather than spreading free thought, building character, and advancing equality, justice and humanity!
Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed-and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law-maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment--the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution--not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply "give the public what it wants"--but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.

There are always numerous messages given to the inhabitants of our planet, but few are recognized or acted upon. It's this ability to read the warnings and recognize the truth that I call the awakening of the people. The old phrase used to describe this awakening has been deemed enlightenment. Good word, but a little worn, overused, and misunderstood! In my opinion, it's time for new terminology for a new community. Our ability to discern these truths and assimilate these moments of clarity into the growth of community is our saving quality. We are quickly transforming into a society in which we all have the responsibility of leadership. With the awakening of the people, comes the death of hierarchal imprisonment. Of course this means we are responsible for each other...imagine that!
There's a big difference between being "THE" leader and "A" leader. A group can be made up entirely of leaders. It just depends of the time of day and the job that needs doin' to figure out who's leadin' at any given time. Sometimes there're a bunch of people leadin at the same time in the same direction, sometimes there's just one and sometimes there's a bit-o-anarchy, during which everybody's leadin' him or herself for the common good.

People, please stop, what's that sound, everybody look what's going down! We are becoming "We" instead of "Me" and as we traverse this valley of mirrors, we are finding ourselves. And as we begin to really see ourselves, we begin the process of transformation as self-examination reveals that we are all leaders of the people's future! We've had five years of death, destruction, and tragedy. Please, let's not let these deaths over the last five years be for nothing. Let us be able to see this message and take the responsibility to change our world into what it can be; into what "We" can be! It's our watch people! Let's get it right!
