Meliorating Our Sentinels Of Vigilance
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Jan. 23, 2004 -- One of the great
Words of Vigilance is "meliorate."
Simply, it means to make
better, to improve.
Vigilance is all about
meliorating the awareness of each person to the Beast of Terror and
the tools necessary to render the Beast impotent.
The Beast of
Terror hatches when Complacency results in the ambush of Vigilance
with the goal of eradicating it is a useless strategy. For each
Terrorist that is expunged another will appear. The Beast
of Terror lays many eggs. They wait to hatch when Complacency
weaves its web over the eyes of the Vigilant, making them blind to the
Fear and Intimidation lurking in the shadows, waiting to spring out
and ambush the unprepared.
another form of meliorate, Vigilance means that we sharpen the keen
edge of our Swords of Vigilance daily, aware that disuse will dull the
edge and our readiness to react to the Triads of Terrorism --Fear,
Intimidation and Complacency--will soften, desiccate and freeze our
reaction time to its dangers.
\Mel"io*rate\, v. i. To grow
better. (Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary)
Vigilance must be aware of the above word
Sentinels of Vigilance
must be aware of the word meliorate, for not only does the idea of
improving provide us with defenses against an attack of Terrorism, it
gives us the power of offense against such assaults.
If we act with Courage,
Conviction and take Right Actions that benefit the Children's
Children's Children, then we are improving our duty and obligation as
guardians of future generations.
We are letting the Beast of
Terror know there is no room for an invasion of Fear, Intimidation or
Complacency because we hold the high ground. Our Castles
of Vigilance have thick walls when we act with the Principles of
Vigilance as our guide because we are validating each of them by
actions, not waiting to put them into action.
America today is meliorating
its Vigilance as never before in its national history.
Each citizen is aware of the danger of external physical dangers that
threaten our country's security. But how many are as concerned
with our Internal, Emotional Security? How many of
us are meliorating our sense of Vigilance at the level of our
children, aware that the Beast of Terror is gnawing at their self
worth, trying to weaken their resolve to stand up to all the
challenges of life with Courage, Conviction and a belief in their duty
and obligation to do the Right Thing for future generations?
If Terrorism--the public
kind we read and hear about daily--has a true value for each of us on
an individual basis, it is to remind us that we need to shore up our
personal resolves. We need to grow stronger in our human
character and shed wasteful character defects that make us stumble,
falter, fall and often not pick ourselves up and start again.
parents who inflict Terrorism by destroying their children's
Internal Emotional Security
Despite all the news about
Terrorism and the threats it imposes upon our society, there are
parents who Terrorize their children by threats both covert and overt.
Such threats range from physical to emotional abuse. Then
there are teachers and bosses and other people who thrill at lording
over others, depreciating another because of how they look or speak or
dress, or what color they are, or what their sexual preference may be,
or to whom they pray, or how fat or thin they are.
Meliorating Vigilance means we
improve our ability to stand up for ourselves and the children of the
future. When someone scoffs at another, they not
only scoff at the individual, but all individuals who may be similar,
including the children of the future. Terrorism has
long fingers that reach deep into the future.
By improving our awareness of what we
say and how we act toward our children and loved ones, we begin to
realize that how we treat our own is how we treat the world.
The father or mother too busy for their own children will be too busy
for all humanity. Selfishness will not give way to
Reach for the
light of selflessness with our children and loved ones
Melioration will shift the direction from
selfishness to selflessness. By improving upon ourselves
and our respect for one another, we begin to drive Terrorism farther
and farther into the wastelands. The less fuel it
has to feed upon, the more it will starve.
The less bigotry and prejudice we serve on a silver platter, the
skinnier the Beast will become.
To begin meliorating the Beast, take the
Pledge of Vigilance. Let your signature on it be a sign to
the Beast that you are a Sentinel of Melioration, dedicated to
improving the future rather than tearing down the present as is the
goal of Terrorism.
