Who remembers the media chaos following 9/11? It was a relentless birage of impressive images and the same phrases repeated over and over and over on different channels as if scripted for all of them. I don’t remember really speaking to anyone about it. Everyone at the school where I worked at the time was pretty quiet. We all just watched it unfold on the news during lunch. Looking back I guess it was because we were all in a state of shock, traumatized to some degree, and frankly really scared. It wasn’t long before the White House knew exactly who did it and soon we attacked Afghanistan and then Iraq. No trial, no investigation, nothing. How could the most powerful country on earth allow 4 planes to fly around without intercepting any of them? I do know that when a person is in a state of panic the cognitive part of the brain shuts down so that they can react quickly to get out of harm’s way. So we were vulnerable and looked to our government to help us feel secure again. The “storm” was raging and most of us accepted it. I did. Well, as I read and looked into some of the claims I began to see the deception. I, like thousands of other people in this country are like the flowers in the field, waiting for the storm to pass and knowing the sun will come out again, shining on the truth.
