On September 11, 2001, I was in the eighth grade. It was 1st or 2nd period, history ironically, and I believe the announcement to turn the TV on came over the intercom. We watched what happened briefly and then the teacher turned the tv off. I had to know more.
It was a quiet day, a bunch of kids trying to take in what had just happened. Over the next few weeks, months probably, possibly every day till the end of the school year, we would, daily, take a moment of silence.
We made totes as care packages for the soldiers running off to defend our country. I asked my mom to help me get some tokens from Mexico to add to my tote, I wish I could remember what it all was, there was definitely a bunch of candy.
That same day, and every day after school, and on the weekends for at least 2 weeks, I spent my time in front of the TV. I would watch every news station repeat the event over and over again, listening to every word, vowing to hate Osama Bin Laden.
Throughout life I heard the conspiracy theories about how it was planned and I would get so offended by the thought that this was done to Americans by Americans, it was al-Qaeda! Until my needing to know more took an unexpected turn.
It turned out that there was a 3rd tower that went down, and that the Pentagon was hit too, why didn’t I know that? News reporters reported the tower going down minutes before it actually went down. Then the audacity of the 45 degree cut at the base of the support beams!! It was a demolition job!
What in the actual hell? What did I walk into?
It was spearheaded by Bush, and just like that, Homeland Security got their grubby hands all over Americans. What we say over phones, what we look at online, what we text, email, everything! There is an archive on every single one of us on everything we’ve ever done. They know us better than we know ourselves! The whole I-have-nothing-to-hide narrative doesn’t work here, this goes against our right to privacy as Americans.
Privacy agreements got ridiculously long for everything, no one really reads those either, what are we signing, what’s within all the contracts signed every time we download a new app? Why is it that the Corporate race usually gets away with their dirty deeds while still receiving government bail outs? How much of the taxpayers money is actually going to the roads and schools, etc., and how much is going into these scumbags pockets?
There are fields of opium in Iraq, guarded by American military to fund the war initiative as they legally can’t grow or manufacture American products on foreign land, ergo competing with the American economy. There are movies that depict this. Fields of drugs that they, who are profiting from it and allowing it to come into our borders, have it here placed on the list of schedule 1 drugs. Fields of drugs that have taken many lives and have countless others in the tight grip of addiction, so we can fight a war on terrorists, that were themselves funded by the Pentagon. Pres Trump successfully defunded the Pentagon, bravo Mr. President. Al-Qaeda drove Pentagon funded, American made, Toyota trucks, can you believe that?!
All of this from 9/11.
The guys who hijacked the planes were hired, by Bush and the like, the deep state Puppeteers. They built bases in Iran training al-Qaeda as American soldiers are trained, giving them guns and ammo to terrorize the people of Iraq so they could sell their guns and bullets and mosquito nets that the soldiers didn’t even get, to both sides mind you, and get rich. And get rich they did…
There is so much more when you look things up online, and there’s usually 2 stories being told too, one that makes sense and is backed with proof that makes sense too, and one that says, no, those guys are lying, they made it all up, and the government entities in my pocket cos of my “donations” determine this individual to be discredited.
Lying to the people, at the expense of the people, for their own greedy gains.
My point is this: we are the ones with the power. It’s what we believe that dictates how this world is run, not what they say we should believe, though that’s how we’ve been fooled for generations. We think they have all the power, that’s the ruse, cos they don’t, we do. The thing is, the last thing done is what stands, so if we do nothing while they continue to act, then what they do stands; we have to react to their actions, do our part of the relationship.
Be kind to your neighbors, and write letters to elected officials, that’s the American dream in my humble opinion. If these elected officials don’t oblige, vote them out.
I want to take a minute of pause, like we have done for 19 years, for all the lives lost that day. Lost but never forgotten. Where we go one we go all.
