ZERO PLUS 1228 DAY,--New York, NY, Saturday,
January 22, 2005--It's
called Thunder Snow.
The worst storms commonly result from its wrath.
Icy cold air in the upper atmosphere is met in
updrafts by warmer ground air. The turbulent updrafts drive
positive and negative electrical charges to opposite sides of
the wall, stretching them to their limits.
A bolt of
electricity bolts like an angry Beast......
A bolt of electricity that we call lightening
sparks between the two forces--the Plus and the Minus--attempting
to bridge the distance between the two, to bring them back into
closer context so they can be managed.
two forces and a great snap thunders through the heavens
Like an angry Beast unwilling to be tamed, the
Negative charges resist while the Positive charges pull and
a great snap is heard, thundering through the heavens as the
forces of Plus and Minus clash.
The fire created by lightening is hotter than
the surface of the sun. This massive ignition of power trying
to bring "Vigilance" and "Terrorism" together
explodes with ear-shattering results.
Thick, white flakes of snow, some reaching a span
of two inches, falls toward earth. Composed of tiny crystal
structures, the flakes spin and parachute to the warmer earth
unless driven into a sheet of freezing powder by blizzard winds
that can freeze the unsuspecting in mere minutes.
Millions are bracing for it. Nature has put humans
on notice that when she wishes to take control either through
a tsunami that sweeps tropical paradises with giant waves and
washes tens of thousands to their deaths in mere minutes, or,
through sending lightening and thunder to orchestrate a giant
snow storm, she takes no prisoners.
Nature is blind in her wrath.
is blind in her wrath
She will kill the old and helpless, the young
and innocent, and everyone in between. Her business is not selective
attacks on certain kinds of human beings as Terrorists tend
to do. She will kill the Christian, Jew and Muslim within the
same blink of her eye as she does the atheist or agnostic and
those who know nothing and wish never to know.
Terrorists, however, will aim their weapons at
a particular group of people and lay claim to some righteous
intent behind their killing and maiming. Anyone who happens
to be in the crossfire will suffer the same as the targets,
but in the end, the Terrorists cite victory only over the maiming
and destruction of their "enemies."
Mother Nature is far fairer in that respect.
aim at particular groups of people but Mother Nature is
By not discriminating against any particular group,
her violence, however homicidal, makes it hard to point a finger
at her intent to "harm." She is simply acting as she
has long before human beings walked the earth. She is five billion
years old; humans have trouble tracing their ancestors back
more than 3.5 million to a creature named Lucy, and to human-like
footprints preserved in volcanic ash in Tasmania.
In Greek mythology, humans were Terrorized by
thunder. It meant the "gods" were angry, that they
had somehow violated some rules and were punished.
Terrorism's great power of Fear, Intimidation
and Complacency is best expressed in a thunder storm. It drives
children to hide or clutch parents for protections. They are
Intimidated by the ability of the skies above to unleash such
violence, and totally Complacent (powerless) to do anything
Snow, on the other hand, usually connotes purity--a
refreshing of things, a cleansing and birth of all that is good.
Thunder Snow mixes the two--Vigilance with its
Courage, Conviction and Right Actions--clashes with Terrorism
and its Fear, Intimidation and Complacency.
George W. Bush's words, America has positioned herself
as the global Thunder Snow
Like the negative and positive charges high in
the heavens separating through the turbulent updrafts, the "good
guy" and "bad guy" face off.
Lightening and thunder roil above as white, pure
Casual observers of weather may consider a Thunder
Snow just another anomaly of nature. But a historian of human
nature sees in the thunder and snow the presence of the Sentinel
of Vigilance and the Beast of Terror.
This battle is eternal.
stand eager to taste and feel the blood of Snow Thunder
on my face
Those who might ignore its truth in their particular
daily lives need only pick up a copy of the news headlines from
a couple of days ago. It was all about Thunder Snow.
The heart of George W. Bush's comments put Terrorism
on one side and Vigilance on the other. He used the words Freedom
vs. Tyranny, but by any whittling of words, the shavings create
the same image--Fear vs. Courage, Intimidation vs. Conviction,
Complacency vs. Right Action that benefits future generations.
America has positioned herself through George
Bush's words as the global Thunder Snow.
The white snow of Freedom will fall upon the thunder
and lightening of tyranny and oppression.
Those who want to be free of Fear, Intimidation
and Complacency can by turning up their faces and opening their
mouths to inhale the snowflakes of freedom that Mr. Bush promised
Nature reminds us that after the battle, a blanket of
Vigilance will cover us
So, as the anticipated Thunder Snow approaches
New York City, I stand eager for its entrance upon the city's
limits. I want to stand in it and listen to the battle above
and feel the snowflakes--the blood of Snow Thunder--flutter
onto my face.
I want to know that Mother Nature is reminding
us all that we must never give up being Sentinels of Vigilance,
and that in the end, after the battle is fought and the thunder
and lightening have passed, that upon the ground will be left
the blanket of snow--the white, pure essence of Vigilance that
brings hope to all who understand the value of each flake.
