The World of 1984 looms upon us

George Orwell’s  1984, is now rising on library bookshelves… Google searches are increasing…some people seem to be concerned. Sinclair Lewis’s 1930’s warning of a ‘Leader’ such as Trump in ‘It Can’t happen here”…is now being quoted, posted all over now….is someone trying to tell us something? while the new ‘Tweet’ President runs the nation by Tweets and Presidential ‘decrees’…(executive orders, legal but when is Enough?)..

“Lock her up,” “Trump that bitch,” “Build a wall,” overheard at a Trump Rally.

“A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic,” George Orwell on mass hate. – “

“From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first,” Donald Trump on America.

“There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party,” George Orwell on loyalty.”

A few words about this day….9_11_16

RED IS THE COLOR OF BLOOD… (UNLESS YOU’RE A FANTASY VULCAN, THEN ITS GREEN)….HOW MUCH BLOOD WAS REALLY SACRIFICED ON 9_11?

MY OWN THOUGHTS ARE COVERED IN MY SMITHSONIAN DIGITAL ARCHIVE….(SEE BELOW)….

Just from a personal point of view…. from my 9_11 story – I ended it with these words……”This event will forever be impressed upon my mind and I can only think of two other events which will have such significance; the day President Kennedy was shot and my own father?s death when I was eight years old in December of 1960.
….”
obviously, with just about everyone reading this ….they can say something similar….I cannot help but every year.. post some of these pictures… talk about my story [available on the 9_11 digital archive at “http://911digitalarchive.org/items/show/6688”%5D , should you be interested in reading it.. I find that each year, seemingly, to me, less and less people respond to this ….I cannot.. I have PTSD diagnosed in NYC a couple months after the event.. I still am processing this.. still in counseling and still ‘getting through’…..I’ll be ok, not without a lot of crying, anxiety and more.. but, as with anyone with PTSD…and you may know someone suffering with this, we cope.. or not… I’m coping after about 5 different psychiatrists and just as many or more counselors…
Just a bit of personal history…..when you hear of veterans or anyone with this.. don’t write it off, as just ’emotional’ etc… its much worse, its real, its what we have to live with.. always open to sharing more,, just ask..PEACE, BROTHERS, SISTERS….COMRADES ..[ a Trump supporter, whose a friend of a friend of mine, sort of, called me  SOCIALIST last night, before I was seeing Don Henley in concert at
Behtlelwoods.org… concert spage… (lawn seats, we’re always cheap seats!!!)
 – well, she called me that, so I ‘m taking it up and realizing, YES, I AM A SOCIALIST.. more and more you’ll hear that in the future (what’s left of it).]..LOVE TO YOU ALL
