As I sit here on this 4th of July weekend to write this article and reflect on what is happening in this once great nation, it saddens me that it has gotten this bad…
If you really take a step back and evaluate where all this madness has taken us, it can really hit you hard…
How did we let things go so far??? 4closureFraud dot org
We, as a nation, as the people of this nation, need to take back what has been stolen from us.
Again, what is happening here was no accident. It was the biggest ponzi scheme ever perpetrated in the history of the world.
There are many many reports to back up that claim but you will not find any in the mainstream media. No, the mainstream media is owned by the same players that orchestrated the biggest heist in the history of the world…
Well, I for one refuse to sit back and let this crisis happen without doing everything in my power to make a difference.
Have I? 4closureFraud dot org
I like to think so…
Since I decided to do whatever I could to change the foreclosure paradigm, amazing things have happened with the help of a very special core group…
A group of Foreclosure Fraud Fighters that has emerged out of Florida with a power to be reckoned with.
We have done amazing things, and I truly believe, without our efforts, Florida would have a completely different landscape.
Now, I am not saying Florida is anywhere close to where it needs to be, but it is a start.
If we do not keep up the fight, and hard, I am afraid of what the future will bring. 4closureFraud dot org
WITH ALL WE KNOW, WITH ALL THE COURTS NOW KNOW, WITH ALL THE FRAUDS PRESENTED, WITH ALL OF THE INVESTIGATIONS STARTED, HOW CAN THE JUDGES OF THIS STATE GRANT SUMMARY JUDGMENTS AT ALL???
With that said, I would like to present a possible solution to the Foreclosure Crisis in Florida…
Below are quotes from an AFFIRMED opinion from the SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES…
RE: FORECLOSURE CRISIS
(emphasis added by me)
The Act provides that, during the emergency declared to exist, relief may be had through authorized judicial proceedings with respect to foreclosures of mortgages, and execution sales, of real estate; that sales may be postponed and periods of redemption may be extended. The Act does not apply to mortgages subsequently made, nor to those made previously which shall be extended for a period ending more than a year after the passage of the Act (Part One, § 8). There are separate provisions in Part Two relating to homesteads, but these are to apply “only to cases not entitled to relief under some valid provision of Part One.” The Act is to remain in effect “only during the continuance of the emergency…
So it is possible for the courts to protect the people instead of disposesing them… 4closureFraud dot org
The Act declares that the various provisions for relief are severable; that each is to stand on its own footing with respect to validity. Part One, § 9. We are here concerned with the provisions of Part One, § 4, authorizing the District Court of the county to extend the period of redemption from foreclosure sales “for such additional time as the court may deem just and equitable,” subject to the above described limitation. The extension is to be made upon application to the court, on notice, for an order determining the reasonable value of the income on the property involved in the sale, or, if it has no income, then the reasonable rental value of the property, and directing the mortgagor
to pay all or a reasonable part of such [p417] income or rental value, in or toward the payment of taxes, insurance, interest, mortgage . . . indebtedness at such times and in such manner
as shall be determined by the court.
Invoking the relevant provision of the statute, appellees applied to the District Court of Hennepin County for an order extending the period of redemption from a foreclosure sale. Their petition stated that they owned a lot [p419] in Minneapolis which they had mortgaged to appellant; that the mortgage contained a valid power of sale by advertisement and that, by reason of their default, the mortgage had been foreclosed and sold to appellant…
because of the economic depression appellees had been unable to obtain a new loan or to redeem, and that, unless the period of redemption were extended, the property would be irretrievably lost, and that the reasonable value of the property greatly exceeded the amount due on the mortgage, including all liens, costs and expenses.
On the hearing, appellant objected to the introduction of evidence upon the ground that the statute was invalid under the federal and state constitutions, and moved that the petition be dismissed. The motion was granted, and a motion for a new trial was denied. On appeal, the Supreme Court of the State reversed the decision of the District Court.
It is this judgment, sustained by the Supreme Court of the State on the authority of its former opinion, which is here under review.
The state court upheld the statute as an emergency measure. Although conceding that the obligations of the mortgage contract were impaired, the court decided that what it thus described as an impairment was, notwithstanding the contract clause of the Federal Constitution, within the police power of the State as that power was called into exercise by the public economic emergency which the legislature had found to exist.
The court said: 4closureFraud dot org
In addition to the weight to be given the determination of the legislature that an economic emergency exists which demands relief, the court must take notice of other considerations. The members of the legislature come from every community of the state and from all the walks of life. They are familiar with conditions generally in every calling, occupation, profession, and business in the state. Not only they but the courts must be guided by what is common knowledge. It is common knowledge that, in the last few years, land values have shrunk enormously. Loans made a few years ago upon the basis of the then going values cannot possibly be replaced on the basis of present values. We all know that, when this law was enacted, the large financial companies which had made it their business to invest in mortgages had ceased to do so. No bank would directly or indirectly loan on real estate mortgages. Life insurance companies, large investors in such mortgages, had even declared a moratorium as to the loan provisions of their policy contracts. The President had closed banks temporarily. The Congress, [p423] in addition to many extraordinary measures looking to the relief of the economic emergency, had passed an act to supply funds whereby mortgagors may be able within a reasonable time to refinance their mortgages or redeem from sales where the redemption has not expired.With this knowledge, the court cannot well hold that the legislature had no basis in fact for the conclusion that an economic emergency existed which called for the exercise of the police power to grant relief.
Sound familiar??? 4closureFraud dot org
Justice Olsen of the state court, in a concurring opinion, added the following:
The present nationwide and worldwide business and financial crisis has the same results as if it were caused by flood, earthquake, or disturbance in nature. It has deprived millions of persons in this nation of their employment and means of earning a living for themselves and their families; it has destroyed the value of and the income from all property on which thousands of people depended for a living; it actually has resulted in the loss of their homes by a number of our people and threatens to result in the loss of their homes by many other people, in this state; it has resulted in such widespread want and suffering among our people that private, state, and municipal agencies are unable to adequately relieve the want and suffering, and congress has found it necessary to step in and attempt to remedy the situation by federal aid. Millions of the people’s money were and are yet tied up in closed banks and in business enterprises.
How about that??? 4closureFraud dot org
We approach the questions thus presented upon the assumption made below, as required by the law of the State, that the mortgage contained a valid power of sale to be exercised in case of default; that this power was validly exercised; that, under the law then applicable, the period of redemption from the sale was one year, and that it has been extended by the judgment of the court over the opposition of the mortgagee-purchaser, and that, during the period thus extended, and unless the order for extension is modified, the mortgagee-purchaser will be unable to obtain possession, or to obtain or convey title in fee, as he would have been able to do had the statute [p425] not been enacted. The statute does not impair the integrity of the mortgage indebtedness. The obligation for interest remains. The statute does not affect the validity of the sale or the right of a mortgagee-purchaser to title in fee, or his right to obtain a deficiency judgment if the mortgagor fails to redeem within the prescribed period. Aside from the extension of time, the other conditions of redemption are unaltered. While the mortgagor remains in possession, he must pay the rental value as that value has been determined, upon notice and hearing, by the court. The rental value so paid is devoted to the carrying of the property by the application of the required payments to taxes, insurance, and interest on the mortgage indebtedness. While the mortgagee-purchaser is debarred from actual possession, he has, so far as rental value is concerned, the equivalent of possession during the extended period.
In determining whether the provision for this temporary and conditional relief exceeds the power of the State by reason of the clause in the Federal Constitution prohibiting impairment of the obligations of contracts, we must consider the relation of emergency to constitutional power, the historical setting of the contract clause, the development of the jurisprudence of this Court in the construction of that clause, and the principles of construction which we may consider to be established.
Emergency does not create power. 4closureFraud dot org
The Constitution was adopted in a period of grave emergency.
While emergency does not create power, emergency may furnish the occasion for the exercise of power.
Although an emergency may not call into life a power which has never lived, nevertheless emergency may afford a reason for the exertion of a living power already enjoyed.
Undoubtedly, whatever is reserved of state power must be consistent with the fair intent of the constitutional limitation of that power. The reserved power cannot be construed so as to destroy the limitation, nor is the limitation to be construed to destroy the reserved power in its essential aspects. They must be construed in harmony with each other. This principle precludes a construction which would permit the State to adopt as its policy the repudiation of debts or the destruction of contracts or the denial of means to enforce them. But it does not follow that conditions may not arise in which a temporary restraint of enforcement may be consistent with the spirit and purpose of the constitutional provision, and thus be found to be within the range of the reserved power of the State to protect the vital interests of the community.
The reservation of state power appropriate to such extraordinary conditions may be deemed to be as much a part of all contracts as is the reservation of state power to protect the public interest in the other situations to which we have referred. And if state power exists to give temporary relief from the enforcement of contracts in the presence of disasters due to physical causes such as fire, flood or earthquake, that [p440] power cannot be said to be nonexistent when the urgent public need demanding such relief is produced by other and economic causes.
It is manifest from this review of our decisions that there has been a growing appreciation of public needs and of the necessity of finding ground for a rational compromise between individual rights and public welfare. The settlement and consequent contraction of the public domain, the pressure of a constantly increasing density of population, the interrelation of the activities of our people and the complexity of our economic interests, have inevitably led to an increased use of the organization of society in order to protect the very bases of individual opportunity. Where, in earlier days, it was thought that only the concerns of individuals or of classes were involved, and that those of the State itself were touched only remotely, it has later been found that the fundamental interests of the State are directly affected, and that the question is no longer merely that of one party to a contract as against another, but of the use of reasonable means to safeguard the economic structure upon which the good of all depends.
It is no answer to say that this public need was not apprehended a century ago, or to insist that what the provision of the Constitution meant to the vision of that day it must mean to the vision of our time. If, by the statement that what the Constitution meant at the time [p443] of its adoption it means today…
“We must never forget that it is a constitution we are expounding, a constitution intended to endure for ages to come, and, consequently, to be adapted to the various crises of human affairs.” Id., p. 415. When we are dealing with the words of the Constitution, said this Court;
we must realize that they have called into life a being the development of which could not have been foreseen completely by the most gifted of its begetters. . . . The case before us must be considered in the light of our whole experience, and not merely in that of what was said a hundred years ago.
Nor is it helpful to attempt to draw a fine distinction between the intended meaning of the words of the Constitution and their intended application. When we consider the contract clause and the decisions which have expounded it in harmony with the essential reserved power of the States to protect the security of their peoples, we find no warrant for the conclusion that the clause has been warped by these decisions from its proper significance, or that the founders of our Government would have interpreted the clause differently had they had occasion to assume that responsibility in the conditions of the later day. The vast body of law which has been developed was unknown to the fathers, but it is believed to have preserved the essential content and the spirit of the Constitution. With a growing recognition of public needs [p444] and the relation of individual right to public security, the court has sought to prevent the perversion of the clause through its use as an instrument to throttle the capacity of the States to protect their fundamental interests. This development is a growth from the seeds which the fathers planted.
Applying the criteria established by our decisions we conclude: 4closureFraud dot org
1. An emergency existed… which furnished a proper occasion for the exercise of the reserved power of the State to protect the vital interests of the community. The declarations of the existence of this emergency by the legislature and by the Supreme Court… cannot be regarded as a subterfuge, or as lacking in adequate basis… the economic emergency which threatened “the [p445] loss of homes and lands which furnish those in possession the necessary shelter and means of subsistence” was a “potent cause” for the enactment of the statute.
2. The legislation was addressed to a legitimate end, that is, the legislation was not for the mere advantage of particular individuals, but for the protection of a basic interest of society.
3. In view of the nature of the contracts in question — mortgages of unquestionable validity — the relief afforded and justified by the emergency, in order not to contravene the constitutional provision, could only be of a character appropriate to that emergency, and could be granted only upon reasonable conditions.
4. In the absence of legislation, courts of equity have exercised jurisdiction in suits for the foreclosure of mortgages to fix the time and terms of sale and to refuse to confirm sales upon equitable grounds where they were found to be unfair or inadequacy of price was so gross as to shock the conscience.
5. The legislation is temporary in operation. It is limited to the exigency which called it forth.

Home Building & Loan Assn. v. Blaisdell
APPEAL FROM THE SUPREME COURT OF MINNESOTA
No. 370 Argued: November 8, 9, 1933 — Decided: January 8, 1934
Welcome to the Greatest Depression…
Please educate everyone you know on these issues… 4closureFraud dot org
Please share this with every friend, media outlet, social networking group, website, blogger, attorney, politician and judge that you can.
Tell them that there are other solutions available to sort all this out besides rocket dockets of summary judgments to disposes entire communities…
With all that is now known about what has been done, the frauds that have been perpetrated on the people of this country, I couldn’t see how there could be any another way than a temporary moratorium on foreclosures until all this can be “sorted out” and the parties responsible for this crisis are prosecuted.
STOP THE MADNESS
STOP THE FRAUDS
STOP THE FORECLOSURES
STAND UP AND SAY NO MORE!!!

Excellent! Great blast from the past! Thank you.
Thank you also for the comments…beautiful!
I am doing research for my own case…when I can no longer afford this home in Florida…Where the oil is coming and the fumes of METHANE HAS ALREADY ARRIVED!
Can you please let me know what type of information you need? How to find it? What to look for? And, how to forward it to those more in the know?
“In the museum at Independence Hall in Philadelphia hang the portraits of the founders of America, the writers of the Declaration of Independence, as well as the signers. When I studied these portraits, I observed that each man appears to have the eyes of a daredevil. The eyes of these intellectual and cultured men seem to say, “We know that by signing this document we will be hanged as rebels if our nation fails. but we believe in freedom; we pledge our fortunes and our sacred honor for something that is great.”
You cannot look at these men’s portraits without being affected. They inspire you to say, “I too must dedicate myself to something big in my time.” If our founders created freedom in their time, it is our opportunity to save it in ours. This is being big; this is being great. Dare to take big steps to keep America the haven our founders created it to be.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale
Recently we learned that Florida, always a state with the top 2-3 foreclosures, has set it’s courts on a path of societal destruction. Previously, in my county alone, I was horrified by the 1,000-1,200 monthly summary judgments, where the typical sale date for the family’s home is set for 45 days post judgment date. Now, that goal has been ramped up to 2,000 summary judgments per week. That’s 2,000 homes in one single county in a state with one of the top unemployment rates, and is now facing additional harsh economic damages from the erupting oil volcano in our Gulf. Extended unemployment benefits were just eliminated by Congress, so our unemployment data will soon be unreliable, while the impact of zero income will fell more and more previously productive families from their tentative grasp on basic survival needs.
The founder of 4closureFraud.org, a whistleblower who distills and synthesizes tens of thousands of articles and real life examples of corruption and fraud weekly, He has not only educated us, but now has found a light to shine into the long dark tunnel of America’s ongoing foreclosure crisis.
The Supreme Court issued an opinion in 1933 on the foreclosure crisis during the Great Depression. The phrases could be written today. The answer lies within it’s words wisdom. A national moratorium. Now.
Thank you Michael for your excellent work.
The story of mankind has always been to rise up against oppression. We, as human beings, have a right to be respected and dealt with fairly. Once those are taken away, there is a revolt. That is what is happening now. We have been asked to help the banks stay afloat in exchange for the promise that the banks will deal with us fairly and honestly. We have fulfilled our end of the bargain by giving the banks our hard earned money. The banks, however, are woefully inadequate in fulfilling their promise.
Our leaders have betrayed us by looking for protections for the banks and for Wall Street. Our leaders are employed by us, not by the banks and certainly not by Wall Street. We control who goes to Washington. In each of our jurisdictions, we myst make a concerted effort to block the re-elections of those that have betrayed us. We speak with our votes – let them hear us loud and clear.
Our courts have also betrayed us with judges who legislate from the bench. Consumer protections have been stripped away by these judges who feel bad for the banks and believe that the banks are on the losing end of the bargain. I want everyone to read this 1974 5th Circuit opinion regarding TILA. In this case, the judge relunctaly followed the letter of TILA and you can read in his words that although it pained him to sanction tbe creditor, the letter of TILA required it. http://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=2218591849044924814&hl=en&as_sdt=2&as_vis=1&oi=scholarr
Additionally, our judges turn a blind eye to the evident fraud perpetrated in their courts. By doing so, they have become complicit in the fraud and should also be held accountable. We need to obtain the financial statements for all the judges that are up for election this year. Judges who have any interests in the banking industry should be required to recuse themselves from ruling on any foreclosure cases.
Great work, Michael. People who take a stand for truth and justice deserve the greatest respect, especially when they stand up against tyranny and injustice.
Although most people don’t know it, injustice is the reason cited most often for declaring independence. See the Declaration of Independence at http://www.scribd.com/doc/17099415/The-Declaration-of-Independence
However, injustice is rampant once again because the means provided for us to hold government agents accountable have been eliminated. If you want to know more, see Why Does the Government Ignore Our Wishes? at http://dailycensored.com/2009/09/11/why-does-the-government-ignore-our-wishes/ and don’t miss my 18 minute speech.
If you take a look, you’ll learn why banksters, their attorneys, regulators, and judges can get away with violating our rights, abusing their power, stealing homes and committing horrible crimes. My article on torture includes a link to the U.S. Supreme Court case which explains how one of our stolen rights makes the difference between justice and injustice, between freedom and slavery.
I was never one for history class, I admit and think my history teachers would agree, but now more than ever I have become a student of history and a victim of it at the same time.
I, last evening, watched many episodes of John Adams on TV and find it remarkable that the founders of our country took the greatest leap of faith we will ever know to protect their freedom and that of their children and grandchildren and waged war on a power much greater than themselves simply because they KNEW it was right.
They fought against the very thing that we fight now. They fought against tyranny and oppression for the want of freedom to be left alone. They fought for the right to live and let live, to BE good and DO good. They simply wanted to detach themselves from the evil that had become their government and taxes forced upon them.
We now are faced with an amplified version so heinous and destructive that the tyranny and taxes they experienced pales in comparison to the criminal acts we are living through across this great land by the very people that pledged themselves UNDER OATH to uphold the very freedoms set forth in our Constitution. They have been lured to the evil for the want of more power, greed and continued want for more and more at the direct known expense of the people that placed their trust in them to protect the freedoms of ALL citizens of this country.
They all turn a blind eye to the evil that is an out of control monster gnashing its teeth and intimidating anyone that challenges it’s power and allow the destruction of the very nation we all collectively call home.
How can judges, politicians, law enforcement agents, regulatory agency employees and directors, and lawyers that were supposed to uphold the integrity of the profession they entered into, all succumb to the evil greed while watching the complete and utter destruction of the lives of multiple millions of families without once raising their brow to question what they are doing and allowing?
Why is it that all the millions that are being effected by this and are reaching out to the entirety of the political spectrum still have no voice in the “free” government we supposedly have in this nation?
How can we allow the government that we have “elected” steal our homes, our freedoms, our basic fundamental rights and stand idly by and just wait until another election cycle?
We must act and we cannot wait, for if we do there will be nothing left at the close of this year. We must stand up to this monster in an exact and concise way and we must do it NOW.
I applaud the foreclosure warriors that have done so much for the state of Florida, Arizona, New York and other states that have been so devastated by this nightmare. I also reach out to each and every one of you to extend your knowledge to the remainder of your countrymen as we need the experiences that you have endured to be passed on to the rest of the country.
We need you and we need to gel together in a force that can be heard. We need this to reach beyond the state borders and make this an effort to halt this evil where it lives. We now have an extensive record of fraud and deception throughout the entire system proven by your hard work but it must not stop with cases in your state. We must go beyond untimely investigations by agencies that are part of the problem. We must challenge the fundamental problems of a corrupt system that cannot be fixed and those that refuse to stare the monster in the face.
We can prove that the largest ponzi scheme ever known to the globe is the monetary system run rampant in search for global control and we the American people deserve better. We know this entire corrupt system is Federal Racketeering and an Antitrust monopoly that cannot continue. We have proof of the fraud and deceptive tax evasion along with the laundering of the flawed and fraudulent loans created to prey on hardworking citizens of this country. BUT WE NEED TO ACT AND BRING FORTH THIS MOVEMENT!
We the non-attorney activists can find all the evidence of things yet we cannot cross the threshold to be heard. We cannot, however, put our activism into motion without those that have the ear of judges and the credentials needed to get us to the other side. We cannot trust that the political system will do anything as proven by the a lack of any reform. We cannot, however, wait until another election cycle to address this issue.
We need to take significant legal action on the scale that can counter balance this atrocity. We need attorneys that can step up and file tobacco or asbestos size lawsuits to stop the evil and uncover the truth. We need to challenge every aspect of the system until we can expose the light not just on a few Maiden Lane documents but on the entire concealed problem.
The truth exists and is not being told. The evidence is there and many of us know where to find it. There is no legal reason we need to bow to the destruction of our freedom and most certainly not for the sake of maintaining the economies of other countries.
No longer can we be silent and fall back in the defensive posture. We need attorneys to collaborate and create a template that can be used to actively attack the illegal activity and shut down the monster and expose to the sunlight the corruption. Where are the ones that have the intelligence and desire to fight?
Where are the Thomas Jeffersons and John Adams of today’s world? Where are the ones that can help us take back what our forefathers sacrificed to create?
Something must be done. We must fight and we must do it before it is too late.
We know the truth and we have the proof, now let’s put that truth and evidence to use in a cohesive solution.
The most important thing to understand is that the global monetary system has left us with so much over leverage that there is no way to contract it back to reality. The governments are all just perpetuating the inevitable collapse of the acts of greed and gluttony. The magnitude of what has happened cannot be unwound and the only solution in history is “jubilee”
Remember that the monster is fat and the power asserted is nothing more than illusion. If the money is inflated by deception then the money is not real. The illusion is that the banks and their accounting fraud make for no real money. They have the ability to add zeros to the end of their account balances but they are backed by nothing. If the money is inflated artificially with hot air the bubble looks very big and ominous but a simple pin prick reveals the truth.
Those that state they have endless money have nothing when the truth is exposed. They are not as powerful as they believe if the people challenge the fraud. We collectively have power to change perception and can expose things that exist if we do it together.
Get Up, Stand Up.
Happy Independence Day, how free can YOU be?
Today, I will remember my father who passed away so recently. He was a retired officer of the United States Air Force. A fervent defender of the Constitution and of fact and law, and a avid student of History, this highly decorated, honest man devoted his entire life to preserving our noble freedoms.
Last Memorial day in Washington D.C., as my mother and I visited Arlington National Cemetary where he is to be buried with full military honors, 100,000’s of Vietnam veterans were also visting D.C. for “Rolling Thunder” to also pay their respects to fallen brothers and sisters of the Vietnam War. This was the same War my father earned a Bronze Star among many other decorations for valor and dedication while risking his own personal safety and life.
It was that Sunday I picked out a book in his vast historical library to begin a read for the long, sad trip home back to Florida. Florida is where I have been fighting fraud and for property rights for several long, frustrating years. The book I chose was written about the Vietnam War entitled “The War of the Innocents,” by Charles Bracelen Flood. Published in 1970, Mr Flood foresaw the main reason WHY the South Vietnamese and the U.S. would EVENTUALLY LOSE the war against the Communist Viet Cong. The ex-Army, Harvard graduate keenly observed that the poor Vietnamese peasant farmers were CONSTANTLY having their PROPERTIES SEIZED ILLEGALLY BY A CORRUPT GOVERNMENT AND THEIR CORRUPT, WEALTHY BUSINESS PARTNERS.
The constant harrassment, removal, and dislocation of the poor, peasant farmers and their families contributed greatly to the lack of support of their corrupt Saigon Government, and indeed the lack of responsibility of its own soldiers and citizens to fight effectively against the Communists.
In 2010, even an 8 year old being removed from their home due to a questionable foreclosure could draw the same conclusion regarding a corrupt system that aids and abets illegal and fraudulent harrassment, removal and dislocation of too many families who’s unalienable rights are being denied.
IF FACT AND LAW ARE NOT BEING UPHELD IN THE COUNTRY WHO HAS SHED THE MOST BLOOD FIGHTING COMMUNISM AND FASCISM IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, WHAT DOES THAT REVEAL ABOUT THE NATURE OF THOSE WHO SWEAR A HOLY OATH TO DEFEND AND PRESERVE THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – AND DO NOT?
Tomorrow, I begin researching “Fraud on the Courts” on forged complaints and so-called “supporting” documents made by so-called “officers of the court” in yet another legal battle on a case already dismissed once before.
Today, on the morning of July Fourth, I miss my father terribly. Today, I weep in utter despair as I write this message to whoever cares to read it. I sincerely question that his whole life was dedicated to a lie?
This is NOT a happy day.
Today IS a HAPPY DAY! Every day that we are alive, in a healthy human body and surrounded by those who love us, is a cause for celebration.
We are here now. We have the power to change things, to alter the course of life, to make it a reflection of our values, our goodness and our strength.
We have the power to stand up and speak our truth. If there were no darkness we would not know that we were the light. We can be grateful to those souls who have sacrificed their integrity in order to offer us the opportunity to move into ours.
Rob, your beloved Father is standing up right beside you. His legacy can be your inspiration.
Jeff, the fact that brave people have come before us is our inspiration. We can focus on the power of One. Me. You. I am one of the John Adams. There are others. There will be more. And more than there have ever been on the beautiful planet who has welcomed us as her guests. We will be worthy of her.
Please stay in courage. Faith and intention. We are not alone.
“We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore.
We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution — but from annihilation.
We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist.
And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice:
“We will not go quietly into the night!
We will not vanish without a fight!
We’re going to live on!
We’re going to survive!”
Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!”
