Today is Juneteenth. What does that have to do with 9/11 truth, the main purpose of this blog and the walk that began it? Plenty.
Lies perpetuated over decades and centuries have lent themselves to injustices that continue today. Thanks to witnesses with cellphones, police killings can be widely exposed within minutes.
Government lies concerning the mass murder of Sept. 11, 2001, hid the basic facts of that atrocity and led to the carnage and destruction and waste that followed.
On this day, Juneteenth, two activists with different approaches may show some of the way out.
“Love and justice are not two,” angel Kyodo williams says. “Without inner change there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.”
Her passage ends with what she calls the Warrior-Spirit Prayer of Awakening, written “in response to the events of September 11th.”
Margaret Kimberley singles out Churchill, Columbus and King Leopold of Belgium as underrecognized for their racist savagery:
“The perpetrators of crimes against humanity are often elevated to positions of respect and admiration. It all depends on who did the killing and who was killed. Now the murderers are being called to account.”
Statues coming down are one sign of change this year. The exposing of long-tolerated police brutality is another. These could be steps toward a better world with yet-unforeseen transformative changes.
