SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER
[reprinted from March 2006]
Are we looking for Heros ? Are we looking for Voices that speak the Truth? Are we looking for Someone to Speak up Against the Criminal Administration ? I watched the Harpers Magazine Impeachment Panel on March 2,2006 ( it is being aired on C-Span this week). The Panel was made up of some very well respected folks speaking very honestly about Impeachment and Options.They also pointed out that Speaking up to this Administration is Intimidating for All, even our elected Representitives. They also pointed out that The People need Someone to educate them regarding High Crimes and Abuse of Power. John Dean explained that the Watergate Impeachment Process actually took time, but it also was aided by the People, the Public Demanding the Truth.
In Spring 2004 I found a book about Robert F. Kennedy that spoke about this issue. This Book spoke to me at a time when I was disillusioned and sad about leaving my home due to circumstances beyond my control. I had driven over 1500 miles hoping to find a safe home for my son and pets after too much harrassment due to my Whistleblower situation had escalated. I had lost faith in My Government. This one book gave me Hope. The book is called The Spiritual Biography of Robert F.Kennedy, written by Konstantin Sidorenko.I sat in an old dilapitated Victorian Rooming House on the California Coast. It was very stormy that spring and the power would go out, and I would sit in the Dark and read this book while the Sea raged, seals bellowed and gulls squawked. This Book made me realize that the Truth needs to be Sought, but it needs a Leader. A Leader that has Courage and Heart , and is willing to take on a Journey fighting a larger darker Evil. I sat in the Dark and realized that we are in the Dark waiting for that Leader to come to the Helm of the People and Speak Truth to Power.
The Book spoke about taking a Stand on Controversial Issues in a Time of Social And Concience Unrest, because it would bring Change. Bobby Kennedy took a stand on an Unpopular War and also took a stand against a Sitting President. He reached out to The People, but he didn't just Reach to the people, he Listened to them and their pain. There were many that needed to be heard, college students, coal miners and impoverished in Appalachia, Watts, migrant workers, women,minorities, and more. He remembered the Real People , and he came to Them, he hit the Streets. He was fearless, but not reckless. He was compassionate but fierce in seeking Justice and Change. He remembered We the People had built this Country, Our Country.
It is now March 2006, we now Know Some of the High Crimes and Abuse of Powers, and we know that our Country has suffered, and Our Constitution is Suffering. And now Millions of Americans are as disillusioned as I was in Spring 2004. I am not alone in the Dark anymore. We are waiting For a Voice to arrive on the Scene. Someone who remembers We The People and how Important Our Constitution really is to Our Country.
We Need Someone to Speak Truth to Power.
Now is the Time.
