    Much appreciation

I want to thank you all for being apart of my life.   Even those of you that I never spoke to directly effected me by your presence and the shared understandings and discussions.

The most difficult part of the "4E" story we are leaning about is the emotional effects on me.  How do I bear this knowing.

One anecdote:

I have the fear that, as an outspoken political dissident, that I will die in a hail of gun fire as a SWAT team blasts through my front door.  (This is not an idle fear.  It is based on my thoughtful understanding of the kind of social changes being engineered now.)

A comment:  "I'm afraid the police will knock on my door and say 'We have been looking for you.' "

Another's responses:  "They don't knock any more."

Everyone:  lots of laughter.

In that simple exchange I understood that the room was full of people who see this trend.  Smart people, good people, informed, perceptive, creative people — all who notice that soldiers are blasting through people's front doors and that WE are likely to be targets.  My sense of being isolated and "crazy" was greatly lessened.  My concern for this outcome is was not changed by this exchange, but I am bearing it more easily.

I also appreciate the work Becca is doing, especially, a psychologist working with people to contain and manage the effects of this "pre-traumatic stress disorder."  (Thanks for a great word, Time2Help.)

…once I fully understood that Chris, and I love this Man was speaking for me I intentionally made a point to make everyone dislike me. It wasn't by accident. If I'm going down it will be because of what I said, not Chris or anyone else. I live in a very different geological and potentially politically charged environment. I want control of where I live and the people I associate with. I do not want out as a martyr for the cause, I want in to help change things for the better. Sometimes you eat crow before the menu changes. You understand? I have no fear as you have spoken and I am NOT nearly as desperate. I wish you well. BOB

It truly does feel like the weight of the world on your shoulders at times, yes?  You are most definitely not alone.

Hey, on the bright side – going out that way would definitely beat a two year struggle with cancer.  A personal favorite on the subject of death:

[quote=Tecumseh]

"When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."

[/quote]

Larry,

Thank you for "wrapping up the weekend" with your anthem.  I share many of the expressions of previous commentators and would like to add that talented, thoughtful and educated people shared the weekend with me proves to me that, my circle of friends and family, are the clueless, not me.

Sharing Peak Prosperity,

JJ

    Nicely Done!

Larry,

Just wanted to let you know that I really appreciated your song. Maybe you can make an entire album on the PP topics and find a new avenue to sell this important message to the masses.
