A big thank you to you!
In keeping with the celebration of love, described by Brother Ghost Dancer, I wanted to thank all the People of One Fire members, who have made my survival possible over the past nine years. Many of you made generous donations, when I was desperate for money to pay utilities and buy food in that old hovel of a cabin. Many more of you have kept in touch with me via telephone and emails. That meant a lot, because I was intentionally isolated from other humans.
Today marks the ninth anniversary of one of the most traumatic experiences, one could imagine . . . Being given three days notice to be homeless on Christmas Eve. It’s been a long climb out of that situation, but your donations and moral support made it possible. I have a borderline poverty income now, but with no debts and modest lifestyle, I feel like royalty. Of course, I can’t hop on a jet plane to go skiing in the Alps, but the situation is so much better this year than last year, it feels like heaven. Geez . . . this is the first time in 9 years that have slept in a bed, had a working stove, had a working furnace and air conditioner, had a washer and dryer, etc. And there are no rats! During the last six months I lived in the hovel, I killed 127 rats. I heard a lot more rats being killed in the walls by snakes! LOL
This was not happenstance situation, but a long drawn out attack by the “powers and principalities of Satan.” It began at sunrise on my birthday in 1997. I was startled awake by an unmarked black helicopter, hovering about 50 feet over my house. Since then I have talked to several men and women, who were Choctaw, Creek, Seminole, Lakota or Apache and had a background in military intelligence, special ops or progressive politics. They all have had similar experiences or worse. One of them said that her fiance’ was a junior grade officer in the US Army. He was having similar strange experiences to her, but suddenly disappeared from the face of the earth about three months before the invasion of Iraq and never heard from again.
It would take a multi-volume book to tell you everything that happened to me after August 1997, so we will just stop there. Things look very grim for this nation right now. Native American elders fear the worse. I do know that the bad guys have been practicing night-time attacks for a long, long time. They plan to knock out the electrical grid. I have a lot of experience living off the grid. Dried beans, grits, oat meal, BROWN rice and freeze dried potatoes containing cheese are the easiest non-perishable food items to cook over hot coals. If you don’t have a wind-up flash-light and radio, you need to purchase them immediately. Again . . . I would not have survived the past nine years without your help . . . and for that I thank you.
