Hung Out to Dry
So over the past few monthes I did indeed sink into despair ( as stated in previous post). Despair that OUR Country had Lost it's System of Justice ( as well as any Honor or Ethics). For me the final straw on the camel's thin back was the US Attorney Scandal, because for me watching these Fine Honorable Attorneys be tossed to the curb was and is beyond reproach. For me the moment I saw on the CNN Ticker that they had been fired Without Reason that Bitter Cold January Day was as heartbending as seeing Red Tanker Trucks Midnight-Dump in my Drinking Water in October 1999. ( see post Red Trucks and Watery Lies). I realized in that icey January Moment that I was indeed Hung Out to Dry.
But over the past few monthes after alot of reading and watching CSpan ( my addiction still),I had an Epiphany. In the past six years haven't we All been Hung Out to Dry ? The Katrina Victims and survivors ( and refugees flung across the country) ? Thousands across the Country that have been ILLEGALLY SPIED ON ? Thousands on the NO FLY list ? Thousands that can't GET Passports- because THEY ARE BEING SCREENED AND EARMARKED ? Thousands that have Lost Jobs ? 47 Million without Insurance ? 9 million Children without Insurance ? 37 Million living and Working Below the Poverty Line scrambling to LIVE week to week ? Millions that are Homeless due to Joblessness, bankruptcy, THE WAR, and Medical Bills ? And The Vets and their Families ? And yes other Whistleblowers like me ?
What if We are Hung Out to Dry.....Is there not a LINE that now Connects ALL of us ? To Fight Back Harder ? To Take Care of Each Other ? To End this Criminal Regime...We The People has NEW Meaning, and it means US taking Back this Country, OUR Country.
Me....I Believe that We are ALL Connected.
We may indeed be Hung Out to Dry, but we are Connected.
I look at my clothes drying on the line differently now, with Hope.
I see Prayer Flags blowing in the wind....Connected by the Damage but also by Hope.
