it is necessary to stand and face the same direction.
Today, I received a long comment/reply to one of my posts. The woman was obviously ready to fight and, there I was a seeming easy and safe target. I, however, am not easy as I have been in the fight for about 35 years.
It is a common error to attack those closest to you, your supporters, those who are on your side, but this only helps the opposition. It is a tactic of war to create discord in the ranks, to encourage in-fighting. When I am attacked by someone on my side of the fight, it is an opportunity to re-mind the attacker. It is our power to direct our passion in the same direction.
There is plenty of fear, prejudice and hatred, but what will win the day is that we are fighting for what is right - for love of our home, our country, our way of life.
On Facebook and other social media, there is the misconception that one commenter knows the other and out comes the weapon of words that only create division and harm. The commenter does nothing to inform or add to the conversation. Their words inflame and create another version of war, that is not only unhelpful, but too often damaging. It is my choice to pause when I feel the sting of insult and innuendo. I usually write a scathing response, delete and rewrite a restrained teaching that this war will be won if we focus our righteous anger on the deserving enemy and not on our fellow activists.
Two years ago, I wrote a song titled, "One Mind". It takes one mind to heal the world. 50 cowboys on horseback with no guns drawn advanced silently on the heavily-armed and threatening government agents. What the cowboys shared was a single-minded idea and goal. They won. The agents backed down without a single shot fired.
Currently, there is a lot of NON-truth being repeated by the government agents, but the videos are many. The aggressors were the agents. The people who stood up for their righteous cause of liberty are now on to the next phase, where the FBI is investigating, but the FBI are part of a government what reinvents the facts to suit its purpose. The war is on. It is sad, but we must remember through all of the lies, that we are on the same side that is righteous. There is plenty to fear, but we must stand because they give us no other acceptable choice. The standing is about love. We fight to save our world from tyranny manifested in chem-trailed skies, fracking, genetically modified everything, loss of rights and property and health. Will we win? I don't know. I do know it is a world fight.
My favorite two quotes of late are from the movie, "Red Dawn".
1. "Even a little flea can drive the big dog crazy" and
2. "Marines don't die, they just go to hell and regroup." Ooh-Ra!
