Invite The Beast Of Terror
To Thanksgiving Dinner...
ZERO PLUS 1170 DAYS,--New York, NY, Thursday,
November 25, 2004--Thankgiving.
It is a time when Vigilance dominates Terrorism, a time when
the world takes a deep breath and exhales thanks for the gifts
of peace and prosperity.
in this world believe in the Thanksgiving Americans celebrate,
but all have their own forms of a day set aside to give thanks
to the joys and prosperities of life.
is a time when Vigilance dominates Terrorism
It is a
day when enemies and allies pause amidst the cacophony of hatred
and bigotry, and, if only on the one side of the coin, there
is an extra prayer delivered on that day of Thanksgiving that
one day the "war" or "battle" or "conflict"
will be over, and the land--scarred and raped by the ravages
of war--will sprout green sprigs of new life and hope.
the most evil of evil doers wants war and conflict to be continuous,
for if it is, there is no respite, not time for the earth to
heal, for the storehouses to fill once again with grain, for
the factories to refit themselves and innovation to expand science
and technology. There is no replenishment of population if war
is constant, for with war comes pestilence and other infections
that prematurely kill generations.
vicious of all Beasts of Terror, the most horrid of all whom
have ever been or ever will be, can ill afford to pray for endless
war, endless bloodshed, endless wounding and decimation of societies,
cultures and progress itself.
of Terror is as much a businessman as any slave driver
of Terror is as much a businessman as any slave driver. A slave
master who works his slaves to death knows that one day the
supply of slaves will be gone and all work will be stopped.
Therefore, he is, by the force of logic, required to treat his
"slaves" with some kindness, some respect, for without
their strengths and wills to work--even if spurred by the sting
of the lash--no pyramids can be built, no monuments constructed,
no factories polished, no new engineering designed to pave the
way for the future monoliths to the tyrant and oppressor can
be built if bombs and bullets are constantly flying, or, in
olden times, spears and clubs.
vile Beast had to take a break sometime, for if he were to pick
all the flesh off all the bones of all the dead, there would
be no more bones for him to pick, no more beings for him to
torment, twist, manipulate.
the Beast of Terror has to welcome a Thanksgiving, of whatever
ilk it may be. He has to want there to be "peace"
and "prosperity" at some point in time for the sheer
need to rejuvenate and replenish that which has been razed,
obliterated, laid waste upon.
Earth has its moments. In the Ice Age and other epochs of time,
the earth wiped out what was and replaced it with something
new, different, hopefully better.
is a time for all of us to take a break
is a time for all of us to take a break, even the Beast of Terror.
And, even though we might not think it possible, the Beast of
Terror and we ultimately see common grounds. There must be a
time for peace, prosperity and healing.
Beast, this is simply time to "fatten the cow" for
its future slaughter, but regardless of the reason for the necessity
of peace, the Beast recognizes its need.
Vigilant, those who are fully schooled and trained to fight
the Beast of Terror in "good times" as well as "bad,"
know that when peace and prosperity come to individuals or societies,
that there can be no loosening of the Vigilance necessary to
guard against the Beast's intrusion.
fatten themselves on the fruits and spoils of peace and prosperity,
the Beast of Terror grows leaner, hungrier, more agile in sharpening
his claws and fangs for his next attack. The Vigilant, the Soldiers
and Sentinels of Vigilance, the Mothers and Fathers and Grandparents
and Loved Ones of Vigilance, are well aware of the daily need
to keep the Beast of Terror only an arm's length away, no matter
how seductive it seems to shut down the defenses and assume
that threats to the security and safety of the children have
been buried forever.
Complacency rises, Terrorism's barometer percolates
It is when
Complacency rises that Terrorism's barometer also percolates.
we celebrate Thanksgiving, we need to set a plate at our table
for the Beast of Terror. It is respectful of us to note his
presence, no matter if we are at the peak of our prosperity
or still licking our wounds of war.
will never go hungry for long, for there will be those individuals,
communities, states, nations and global communities who will
deny the Beast as a threat and turn their backs on him as though
he were some anachronistic icon of past human defects.
Beast will spring alive, like a dry sponge shot full of water.
If you set
a place for The Beast today, you will not forget his presence
But if you set a place
for the Beast today, you will not forget his presence tomorrow.
And, as a result, you will not forget your duty as a Sentinel
Here are some other reasons
to have the Beast of Terror at Thanksgiving dinner:
1.) You know exactly where
2.) Your family can't deny
3.) He'll probably try
and charm you into thinking he's harmless...
4.) You'll find he can't
look you in the eye very long...
5.) Your kids won't be
so afraid of him in the future...
(add any other reasons...)
