When the blinded by the religious “right” boarded the three civilian passenger jets and in the doing of the deed, killed thousands of people, For the first time in my life I was embarrassed to be an American. A few men with boxcutters and an attitude, managed to mount an attack on the US soil on a scale we have not seen since WW!!. Of the hundreds of passengers on board, only one of the hijacked carriers had a few men on board brave enough to resist the few bad apples ,and with the push of their determination saved a far worse horror from occurring on the ground. The two other planes, lacking folks of common sense, and perhaps feeling assured that the government had a plan in place, chose to do nothing and so the loss of the twin towers and the thousands of innocent people just happened! Then again, on the other hand, common folks who stand up to the abuse of criminals who are far more experienced dealing with our legal system, can and do find the “protective system” fails to protect them and indeed rewards the greedy and or criminal elements of our society, Of course , up until now I have been referring to the USA, but the same thought carries throughout the world. We can see in the mideast the potential of a people, who with the proper training and support, can resist the few who seek to initiate an ideal thought to be fair only to them. I suppose that the entire world is infected with people who desire power, and attempt to achieve power through any means necessary WAR, CROOKED ECONOMICS, GREED,FEAR, and IGNORANCE, seem to be, or the combination thereof, the root of our worlds dilemenas . Of one thing we can be assured,however, is that the people who control the money and can maintain the happiest people will win over the negative powers that be, ,just as long as they remember that freedom aint free. Williamleeone With the power of our lord and the sensibilities of our governments perhaps the Earth still stands a chance. In the meanwhile never neglect to nurture a positive connection with another soul, just in case I am wrong.
