Super Typhoon Yolanda Aftermath One Year Later — The Lesson : “Live Life”

leave a comment »

 

by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

Super Typhoon Yolanda changed my Life.

I lived inside “Ground Zero.”

I am a “Survivor.”

One obvious change Yolanda has made to my Life is I am more “aggressive.” Any pretense of patience is completely gone from my Life. I get a project done or I toss it and move on to one I can get done.

One obvious change Yolanda gave me is the opportunity to “Face Death.”

I have had a year to look at my reaction. I should be “Petrified.” I definitely felt, “Concern.”

Today is Saturday, November 8, 2014. A year ago, at “Ground Zero”, I stood in my bedroom and watched the winds of Super Typhoon Yolanda bow the coconut wood door back and forth like a warped, black LP record flexed back and forth.

Three times, Yolanda blew open the door. Three times, I pushed against the wind and intense walls of blowing rain to close the door.

Yolanda took the roof, but she left the thin sheets of plywood over the roof. Although, she did bend one down almost double to continue to pour a persistent waterfall of rain into the room.

Christy Warren, my wife, stood in front of me, and stared out the single window in the wall. I stood behind Christy and had my arms down around her. I watched the door disco dance against the door jab.

I still remember my chant: “You can stop anytime now.”

I have no idea, how many times I repeated those words. Everyone else in the room was quite.

Junea and Vanissa stood behind me. Digna Mora, the cleaning lady, stood behind the girls. Her son, David was under the concrete shelf sink at the back of the room. He fell asleep.

We heard Yolanda’s winds take the tin roof over the bedroom and the abundance of sudden sunlight over the plywood section confirmed the roof had gone airborne.

There was a plywood section for a roof under the tin. The plywood section held, but a sheet of the wood buckled in half.

The wingtip of “my” Archangel Michael statue held up that section of the roof, while the torrential rain poured in and the dry concrete floor began to fill like a swimming pool. The water inside the room would rise to a half-inch before Yolanda ceased her seize.

I remember every second of Yolanda’s bombardment.

Today, a year later, the sun is shining. The temperature is not too hot. Earlier this afternoon around one p.m., there was a nice breeze. A year ago, the phrase “Hell On Earth” had “A Real World” meaning.

I decided not to go to the “Yolanda Commemoration Ceremonies” in Tacloban City and Tanauan because I wanted “The Day” to think about my reaction to Yolanda.

All week long, ABS-CBN has aired the “Survivor Stories.” As a retired military newsman, I understand the decision. People want to know, “What Was It Like ?”

“Scary,” in a word.

The catch is, obviously, there is a limit to how much adrenaline your body pumps in a crisis situation. You sense and feel, “Fear.” But, the “Fear” can’t last.

“Numbness” replaced the initial “Fear” and the “Concern.” I stood at “The Mercy Of A Force Of Nature.” There was absolutely nothing I could do.

Yolanda could of snatched me or anyone else in the room and tossed us against the walls like rag dolls. Yolanda could of tossed any of us out through the roof.

Yolanda could of reached inside the room and pulled any or all of us out through the narrow doorway. Yolanda kept us corralled and “pinned up” in the room until her winds were done outside.

“Thanks To Yolanda, I no longer ‘Fear Death.’”

Naturally, I have “The Death Fantasy” where you lie in bed, surrounded by family and friends who love you. You close your eyes for the last time and “Death” arrives.

If I get “The Death Fantasy” fine; if not, at least, Yolanda, provided the lesson of awareness and acceptance of “Here Comes, The Last Ride ! ”

A year ago, once I heard the winds disappear, I stepped to the door and opened it.

“Stunned,” is the only word that works.

A Child Of The Cold War, I cut my baby teeth on the stories of United States, Soviet Union and Red Chinese Nuclear Armageddon Aftermath.

I remember the Civil Defense lessons in grade school. I got the blue prints I got in the mail from the United States Superintendent Of Documents to “build a bomb shelter in your backyard.”

Momma never let me build the bomb shelter. I couldn’t even convince her to build a basement. I always wanted a basement.

As a teenager, I had watched countless TV shows and movies about The Cold War Nuclear Apocalypse.

As a senior citizen, I stood on the concrete porch and looked at the devastated landscape of the island of Leyte.

No Hollywood Cold War Nuclear Holocaust Movie even came close to Super Typhoon Yolanda.

The brutal sky remained angry swatches of gray. The horizontal canvas was saturated. The rain had stopped and the sky still appeared soaked. The sky around me dripped like running paint on a wet canvas.

The dense emerald vegetation was yanked, pulled and discarded like a giant weedeater had gone ballistic on the landscape.

The huge tree at the corner of the porch had been yanked up by the roots and dropped like a weed at the hole, which moments before had covered the roots.

The 50 to 75 coconut trees in front of the house were gone. Two complete trees stood and four giant busted toothpicks, which had been coconut trees were still embedded in the ground.

Some of the coconut trees had fallen like discarded Lincoln Logs on to the plundered landscape.

Silence.

No sound.

In rural Leyte it is rare for an hour to pass without a rooster crowing somewhere nearby.

Across the barangay road, the neighbor’s bamboo house was gone completely. Christy’s white sari-sari store building was tilted at a 15 degree angle toward the road.

The bamboo carport had served it’s purpose. The bamboo poles were still in the ground. The dried coconut leaves roof had gone airborne.

Fortunately, the carport had stood long enough to keep the van on the ground. The other benefit of the carport, is it helped provide temporary shelter.

When the neighbors across the road, felt their house was going around them, they ran outside to the carport and got next to the van, according to the neighbor woman, they essentially formed a human chain and she held on to the van’s door handle.

Today, I stand with a mug of coffee in my hand and look out at the Land in front of the house. Sunlight bathes the dense vegetation.

We have a tin roof again over the house. The US AID gray tarpaulin still serves as two walls of the house.

I strolled up the barangay road a distance this afternoon. Houses are again beginning to take shape. The rice fields seem to be recovering. The Cameri Barangay Elementary School has a roof again. Neighbors’ roosters chase hens in the school yard and a concrete building in the corner is going up in a corner of the school yard.

Son, Samuel Ranilo Warren got tagged to participate in a Yolanda Commemorative Ceremony in Tacloban City as did cousin,Vanissa Saldana. Daughter, Donna Junea Warren got to “Fly Free” to a girlfriend’s birthday celebration today.

Christy and I have been relaxing around the old Pacific Ponderosa today. One Warren Way got severely remodeled by Super Typhoon Yolanda, but with time, I am sure we will have walls again someday. I need to find a carpenter, I believe, can put my concrete hollow blocks up to build a “Strong” wall.

As a political science and history student, I had memorized the photos of the destruction of “Fat Man” and “Little Boy” to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan in 1945. A year ago, Yolanda at “Ground Zero” in Tanauan, Barangay Baras delivered the “Destruction” without the radioactive “Fallout.”

November 8, 2014 — Tacloban City reports 6,000 people dead. Officials calculate, at least, 1,061 are still missing. I doubt an accurate “body count” for Super Typhoon Yolanda will ever be firmly established because a tidal wave came ashore and took structures and, no doubt, people back out to The Leyte Gulf and The Pacific Ocean.

The brutal winds of Yolanda took roofs and “bombed out” the insides of churches and smashed all the pews to smithereens. More than a week after Yolanda’s winds, I saw that Yolanda had parked a car and a Chevrolet pickup with the grilles against the ground. The trunk and pickup bed pointed up toward the sky, while the wheels rested on the side of a building.

Super Typhoon Yolanda, a year later, has reminded me of an Important Lesson Of Life: ”Live Life !”

I would emphasize : “Live Life With A Passion !”

Today is Saturday, November 8, 2014.

Tomorrow, at sun rise, my plan, is like the plan for today : “The sun is up. Time to make a cup of coffee and enjoy the day.”

The Makings Of A Terrorist ?

leave a comment »

This terrorism poster found a posting on the Internet.  It is directed at the "Fear" of illegal aliens crossing the border into the United States from Mexico.  The paranoia and hysteria of the issue is reminiscent of the "Fear" of the Days Of The Cold War when Americans and Soviet citizens worried who would launch their nuclear missiles first.  This terrorism poster takes the "Fear" to a belligerent "Threat" level.  The author of the original copy under the photograph is unknown.

This terrorism poster takes the “Fear” to a belligerent “Threat” level. The author of the original copy under the photograph is unknown.

 

by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

This photograph definitely gets your attention. The words under the bottom headline are a shock.

Where does a mob begin ?

Is a poster enough to encourage people to take up weapons and become a mob ?

Is a poster enough to generate the ‘Fear’ necessary to become a mob ?

Is this poster enough of a tool to inflame people to take action, which they would usually not consider ?

The words under the photograph suggests that the writer is putting out a “Threat.”

‘The Threat’ suggests the writer is ‘A Terrorist In The Making.’ When you boast that you stand ready to commit ‘Mass Murder’, then, the only logical conclusion is “Terrorism.”

The fact that the poster seems to have been posted to the Internet in the United States, suggests the writer is a “Domestic Terrorist.”

The fact that the writer posted the poster on the Internet on an international social media channel like facebook makes the writer an “International Terrorist”, especially since ‘The Threat’ is directed at the United Nations an international body.

“To any soldiers from any nation, including our own.” The boastful writer is up to challenge the nations and the military forces of the world.

“If you put on the blue helmet of the United Nations and come to the United States, you have made yourself our target.” This sentence should get the original writer listed with Interpol as an international terrorist. The statement should get the original writer in the United States listed as a ‘Domestic Terrorist’, because the writer states: “. . .our target.”

The Real Lie comes in the next sentence. “It is our solemn duty as American Patriots to kill you.”

American History is full of American Patriots. Arlington National Cemetery is full of American Patriots. Cemeteries around the United States are full of American Patriots, who gave their lives in service to their country and their fellow citizens.

The original writer is ‘No American Patriot.’ The original writer is a frightened and scared person, who is using their ‘Fear’ to try and get support from other Americans and to scare people on the other side of the United States and Mexico border, so they will stay in Mexico.

This poster is a ‘Fear’ tactic.

The poster is a “Terror” tactic.

If someone in Mexico, views this poster, the message is ‘If’ you sneak across the border, then, expect some type of ‘Terror’ lurking on the other side of the border.

The writer might of thought that the words might generate some ‘Terror’ to United Nations troops, which might be assigned ‘Peacekeeping’ duties along the border in the United States.  Someone should tell the writer: “Military troops don’t scare easily.  Plus, United Nations troops are often military troops, who have been on active duty in their own countries, so they are military professionals who are experienced in various situations.

Despite the arrogant bravado, the unknown writer is ‘No American Patriot.’

American Patriots are the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, who wear the uniform and carry out their duties on behalf of their fellow citizens. American Patriots are those Americans, who volunteered or got ‘Drafted” and served in the military in combat.

American Patriots are those Americans, who were held as Prisoners Of War in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.” American Patriots are those Americans who endured and returned from the POW Camps. American Patriots are those Americans who died in combat. American Patriots are those Americans who are still listed as POWs, who were not returned after one of the Wars.

American Patriots are those Americans, who enlisted after ‘The Draft’ went away and America introduced ‘The All Volunteer Military.’ American Patriots are those Americans, who always do their best to help family and friends.

American Patriots don’t always wear a uniform and serve in the military. America has more than her fair share of Civilian American Patriots, who work in their communities to make life better for everyone.

American Criminals are selfish, greedy, sanctimonious, bullies and thugs, whose mission in life is to make their life better.

The original writer is No American Patriot and since the writer has made a ‘Threat’ to kill, the writer has put himself or herself in the category of ‘Conspiracy.’

The document suggests that an ‘Assassin’ is lying in wait for a target.

Since it has been more than 24 hours since this poster was first posted on the Internet, it is a safe bet that America’s law enforcement and intelligence community is already aware of the initial posting and the outspoken, original writer is being watched.

Guess, he or she did not realize that the United States Government had more than 200 Federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies on the books before the creation of the Department Of Homeland Security.

Naturally, you have to factor in that all 50 states have some type of state troopers or highway patrol officers. Then, you factor in all the states have numerous counties with sheriff’s departments and American cities, large and small, have police departments.

The original writer should feel nervous because now he or she will be watched closely by dozens of eyes sporting badges and intelligence credentials.

When the smiling sheriff comes up to this person at a basketball or football game and puts out his hand is the sheriff going to shake the person’s hand or is the sheriff ready to bust out the handcuffs ?

The original writer’s copy continues the ‘Threat.’ “We may not wear uniforms. We may not have much military training.” These two sentences suggest that the original writer has entered the realm of terrorist.

Terrorists don’t wear uniforms, so they can blend in unseen in among citizens. Terrorists, however, since the ’60s have been smart enough to find ways to receive military training.

The next sentence is alarming. “But we will have no pity on you.” This sentence suggests that the original writer is ready to be a terrorist. The word choice of ‘Pity’ is interesting, to me, it suggests the original writer has religious beliefs.

Study after study, suggests that sadistic and psychotic killers have no real grasp on ethics or morals, so such a person would probably not write about pity.

The last line is definitely aimed at putting ‘Fear’ into the reader. “Your body may or may not never be found.” This sentence is the proverbial last nail in the coffin. The original writer may or may not have a body disposal plan or method in mind, but it suggests that the killer or killers will feel no remorse at their act.

The trite greeting of “Have A Nice Day,’ is an outdated cliché, which other than being a possible insult serves no purpose.

The photograph and the words under the picture have been an image that has stuck in my mind for more than 24 hours. I can’t believe any American would be so inhumane. I can’t believe any American would be so cold-blooded.

I can believe many Americans are upset about the numbers of people coming over the southern border into the United States.

A sudden influx of people is a surprise to any nation’s economy. Nations are always hesitant and reluctant to accept War Refugees because of the large numbers of people and families who flee combat. Still nations adapt. Services get provided.

The United Nations is one of those organizations, which is suppose to represent ‘The Best Of Humanity.’ The UN attempts to provide humanitarian and compassionate services to citizens around the world. The initial mission was ‘Peacekeeping.’ To date, the United Nations has been successful at ‘The Prevention Of World War III.’

The UN never gets credit for keeping a War from happening. The UN does often get the ‘Blame’ when a War does erupt in some part of the world. The success or failure of the United Nations in any situation always relies on the member nations. Nations have their own security and political agendas, which do not always go hand in hand with the interest of the United Nations and the countries represented.

The United States has not always seen eye to eye with the United Nations. Nonetheless, the UN has been instrumental in getting nations to work together or, at least, to talk to one another. The UN does provide humanitarian services to people around the world, which helps to make a difference in someone’s life or their families.

It is insane to believe an American would shoot at a UN Peacekeeper.

I have confidence that the United States and Mexico will find some working solutions to the border issues.

For someone to have the audacity and vulgarity to design and post such a poster for the world to see is a barbaric regression to the Days Of Adolf Hitler. To use the word, “We”, and suggests that others are also ready to engage in criminal and terrorist acts is a slip back into the “Days Of Cold War Hysteria.”

I would like to believe the original writer had simply had an extreme gungho moment. Perhaps, he or she had seen the ’84 version of “Red Dawn” and the 2012 “Red Dawn” remake. In the first movie, Moscow and the Soviet Union were the bad guys. In the second movie, North Korea gets to be the bad guy.

The 20th Century version is a ‘Cold War Era’ movie. The Berlin Wall had not come down. Moscow and Washington D.C., were not in the habit of talking to one another.

The 21st Century version is less obvious. However, every spring as a Rite of Spring, the North Korean dictator seems to feel the need to threaten the United States. Perhaps, it is the North Korean version of “Easter” – time to threaten the United States.

Both of the ‘Red Dawn’ movies display the idea of “American Patriots.” The United States has been invaded. The Spirit Of The Founding Fathers rises up and the teenagers in both movies do what they have to do to survive and battle the enemy.

The controversial photographic poster is not a statements by patriots; it is a challenge from confused and frightened people who are threatening domestic and international terrorism.

Anti-Terrorist

Day

Flag_of_the_United_Nations.svgEvery man and woman on planet earth should be free of the fear of terrorism.

Terrorists are the Cancer Of Humanity.

 

Scientists and medical researchers search for a cure to the various forms of Cancer.

 

Courage Is The Terrorist Cancer Cure

 

Every man, woman and child on planet earth has the cure for the Cancer Of Terrorists – Courage.

 

Courage like air is hard to see, taste, smell or test for. But, like air, courage I everywhere. The key with using Courage to cure terrorism is to be willing to be creative in the careful application of the solution. You can use your courage to battle terrorist.

 

The resistance fighters of World War II devised ways to humbly and covertly overcome the Nazis. Your greatest weapon is your mind. Use your common sense to triumph over the bullies and thugs, who grow up to be terrorists.

 

Every child should be able to use his or her ingenuity to triumph over the school bully.

 

Thus, every man and woman should be able to think of a way to expose a terrorist to the proper authority.

 

Acknowledged National Interests

 

Every nation in the world has an agenda and interests to pursue; the terrorist is always a threat to citizens and the nation that can be dealt with effectively and efficiently.

International Anti-Terrorist Day

 

October 9 should become the International Anti-Terrorism Day. On October 9, 2012, two armed terrorists gun men stopped a school bus and shot three schoolgirls at point blank range. The Taliban terrorists’ group admits to meeting to decide to issue the “Kill Order” on a 14-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl.

 

The terrorists gun men squeezed the trigger, but, other terrorists groups and individuals had supplied them with the weapons, training and money to carry out the heinous act to assassinate a child.

 

I would suggest all nations observe October 9 as International Anti-Terrorist Day. Naturally, all nations will have their own priorities, thus, they may decide to choose another date and observe that day as a National Anti-Terrorist Day or promote it as their nation’s date to observe International Anti-Terrorist Day.

 

Real Victims, Real Symbols Of Terrorists

 

Malala Yousafzai and her wounded girlfriends are now immortal symbols that cowardly thugs and bullies are an infectious blight on the soul of humanity. Legions of unknown and unnamed children have been misused and abused since time began, but, responsible people always try to protect the children that they might have a future.

Everyone Is A Terrorist Target

 

When the terrorists squeezed the trigger, they acknowledged that two-thirds of the human population were simply their targets. No woman and no child is no longer safe from the psychotic, sadistic lust for murder in the heart of a terrorist. When the terrorists fired at the frightened children they acknowledged, that now that children and women were legitimate targets of assassination, essentially every man, woman and child is a terrorist target. No one is safe.

 

United Nations Resolution

 

All nations can agree that terrorism is a threat. All nations can agree to protect their own domestic and foreign sovereignty to overcome a persistent threat of global terrorism. All nations should be able to agree to sign a short United Nations Resolution that identifies them as a nation that will never rest until the terrorists lie down their weapons or learn to live in virtual isolation afraid of human contact.

 

463px-Emblem_of_the_United_Nations.svg

 

Global Terrorism Definition Change Suggestion

 

Every nation and government on the planet can agree terrorist are a threat. Every nation and government on the planet can agree they need to take action to stop and decrease that threat. How the nations and governments of the world take that action should always be their sovereign right.

 

I would humbly suggest the nations consider looking at their legal codes. Legal systems are designed to punish criminals and protect citizens. A terrorist is a creature that should not be considered human. Humans have rights.

 

Terrorists throughout history have demonstrated they are some being that respects only death, destruction and a continuing state of chaos. The legal change to the letter of the law to identify a terrorists as something as other than human would allow governments more flexibility in the persecution and prosecution of terrorists.

 

Of course, legal scholars will help to prevent dissidents and opposition political party candidates as being classified as terrorists/

 

The global legal systems of planet earth should review their laws on terrorism.

 

 

Terrorists Legal Precedent Change Suggestion

 

I would recommend the following statement as a starting point:

 

A terrorists is anyone, who uses a bomb, in a time of peace, to destroy people or property.

 

A bomb is a device intended only to create death, destruction and create a sense of terror and fear. A bomb is a device that will always kill, maim or injure more people that it was intended due to the scientific and physical laws that explain the blast, concussion, fragmentation and fallout from the initial explosion. In peacetime, a bomb should always be considered the primary weapon of the terrorist.

 

 

Individual Citizen’s Responsibility

 

We all live on planet earth. We have the right to feel a certain sense of peace in our person and in our homes.

 

Governments can only do so much to protect you from bullies, thugs and terrorists. Each person to be at peace in their own mind and needs to find a way to triumph over the bully, thug and terrorist.

 

 

 

World Wonder Warriors

 

FEED ICON BUTTONEvery man, woman and child on planet earth who has access to a cell phone or a laptop can text, email or forward a copy of this article or lines of text to their friends, family members, elected officials and colleagues.

 

October 9 is my suggested date for the International Anti-Terrorist Day.

 

The important thing is to get people pro-active to resist the bullies and thugs of life than grow into terrorists.

 

Every person on planet earth should feel honored to be alive.

Microsoft Word - web 2.0 logos.doc

 

No one should ever make you feel terror or fear at getting out of bed in the morning.

 

imagesWe may all seem meek and mild-mannered, but, we all have the right to feel as though we should be able to rip open our shirts and be the heroes and heroines that stand up to the Terrorists Of The World.

 

We owe it to ourselves and our families to be World Wonder Warriors. The true War On Terror needs to start with every man, woman and child on planet earth, who are tired of being bullied and the victim of thugs, who feed off their fear and terror.

 

Time to text on the cell phones. index

 

Time to email on the laptops.

 

Time to stand up to The Terrorists Of The World and let them know The World Wonder Warriors will find a way to deliver the terrorists to Justice.

The Little Things

 

Sometimes the most innocent of acts can reveal a terrorist to the authorities or the terrorist to his or her enemies. Decide in the privacy of your own mind what act you believe will reveal the terrorist and then be careful when you decide to act.

 

Likewise, we should not have to fear the bullies and thugs that grow up to be terrorist. Children should feel safe to tell a teacher, administrator or adult if another child is trying to bully or hurt him or her. Stop the bullies in grade school and high school and there will be fewer people to recruit into terrorists.

 

Individual citizens should find a covert way to report a suspected terrorist to the proper authorities.

 

Terrorists Threat Truly Global

 

Terrorists are a real threat to every citizen on the planet.

 

In business, sometimes, people may not be aware that their goods, products, services or money is going to support a terrorist or terrorist group.

 

If you suspect someone you have dealt with is a terrorist, then, remember: Malala and her girlfriends, who got shot on the school bus, could of just as easily have been your daughter,

 

Terrorists Are Traitors And Cowards

 

Terrorists are friends to no one. Terrorists stand ready to “betray” their own friends. The Taliban offered to turn Osama bin Laden, the terrorists ‘Al Qaeda leader, over to his enemies.

 

One news report revealed that when Osama bin Laden was cornered he grabbed one of his four wives in an attempt to use her as a “human shield.”

Osama bin Laden had the bravado to pose aiming an AK-7 in a photo and, yet, in a close quarters situation the best reaction that he could come up with was to “hide behind his wife’s skirt ?”

 

In Texas, using your wife to stop a bullet is the act of a coward.

 

In Missouri, using your wife to stop a bullet is the act of a coward.

 

Most places in the world, using your wife to stop a bullet is the act of a coward.

 

Terrorists Are “Phony Phreedom Phighters”

 

A terrorist is a friend to no one.

 

A terrorist is not a freedom fighter. A terrorist is not a resistance movement leader. Freedom fighters and resistance movement operatives have objectives that can be achieved to end a war. A terrorist wants chaos and a constant state of war to thrive to keep people in fear and terror.

 

A terrorist is a parasite that feeds off human fear and terror to find any excitement or meaning in his or her life.

 

A terrorist is a killing machine that respects no one and nothing.

 

A terrorist live to create terror and promote a climate of fear that will have people afraid to sleep at night and walk down the street in sunlight.

 

Ban Bullies, Thwart Thugs, Trample Terrorists

 

No one in the world should ever feel bullied by another person. No one in the world should ever feel the victim of a thug. Everyone should be able to find a molecule of courage to reveal a terrorist to the authorities or to an enemy of a terrorist.

 

Diligence and perseverance through the years and generations will turn the mass multitude of bullies and thugs in army surplus uniforms from units of trained killers into the recognized cold-blooded killers in costumes that they are. Once the propaganda is stripped away, then, the terrorist can be seen as the “kill crazy” creature he or she really is.

 

 

Know Your Enemy

 

Terrorist organizations are the enemies of people, who simply want to live and enjoy their lives and families. Always keep an eye open for information on terrorists organizations. You may not want to bury yourself in a mountain of research everyday, but when you have the time talk to friends, listen to the news, use your mind and decide what to watch out for.

 

Since I enjoy helping trying to make my readers’ lives more interesting, informative and entertaining, I offer you the links to information on Global Terrorists Organizations Of The World. Those links are at the end or the article, which I call my “Rat Finks File.”

 

In the 1960s, people who pretended to be friends and then would “rat out” their friends were called, “Rat Finks.” I can’t imagine bigger Global Rat Finks than terrorists, thus, check out the links of “The Rat Finks File.”

 

 

 

Celebrate Global Humanity October 9, 2013

 

October 9, 2013 – Citizens Of The World should either be dancing in the streets of their nation’s capitols or enjoying local public celebrations to point out how many terrorists are now in jail, facing prosecution or (some places in the world) “sleeping with the fishes.”

 

International Anti-Terrorist Day Slogan Suggestion

 

Eventually, countries, will have their own national and local slogans to combat terrorists. The world is full of creative and imaginative people, who love to stand up to bullies, thugs and terrorists.

 

Until then, if your International Anti-Terrorist Day needs a slogan, feel free to use this Samuel E. Warren Jr., original slogan:

 

No home, hut or out house on planet earth will ever be safe for a terrorist.”

–Samuel E. Warren Jr.

 

Think of how pretty that slogan will look in needlepoint next to the “Home Sweet Home” you hang above the fireplace mantel.

Hallowed Halloween’s Heavenly Hierarchy

Hallowed

Halloween’s

Heavenly

Hierarchy !

by Samuel E.Warren Jr.

Hallelujah ! It is October ! I love my birth month. I love my birthday.

I am indebted to The Universe for allowing me to be born into The Real World – The Day Before Halloween – October 30.

My respect for Halloween has evolved through my lifetime.  As a child, it was the candy, “Trick or Treat” night after my birthday.  But, through the years, it does seem as though some feeling or sense of Universal magick flows ever so subtle into life.

I can believe there is a veil between The Real World and other time and space dimensions or realms and Halloween is the day and night that the curtain is thrust aside.

Birthday Bravado

Everyone on the planet should celebrate their birthday.

You are a unique person. Therefore, the day, the hour, and the place you were born is important. Regardless, whether you believe in Fate, Destiny or Freewill, the Universe locked in that information into the Celestial System to make your birth into The Real World unique.

The Universe precise initiation of Your Life into The Real World is the Ultimate Birthday Gift because you go forth from the instant of your birth to bring changes into humankind or you live your life working nine to five.

What is often overlooked is the legions of relatively unknown and unrecognized people who have gone before who made their lifelong contributions to the Universe without ever achieving fame, notoriety and celebrity. Yet, their actions in life have also helped to change the course of history and the progress of Life in the world.

For a moment, forget the world leaders and the celebrities and look at the biography or an obituary of a local citizen because their life long actions have also brought change. We all change the world, whether we are recognized for it or not.

Baby Birthday Banter

There are stories of babies born in taxicabs and in restrooms because supposedly they are early. There are stories of hospitals and doctors having to “induce labor” because an infant supposedly delays birth into the world. All are good stories. Yet, I believe “birth” is one of those events that is always “on time” based on when the forces of the Universe are ready.

I will leave it to other writers and authors to point out the virtues of the other eleven months of the year.

I focus on October.

Autumn Angst

It is easy to understand how someone born in a Spring or Summer month can be optimistic about their birthday because it is the time of year, when people are out and about doing things. Life is on the move.

Autumn can be a depressing time of year. Life tends to slow down. There is less daylight. People seem more receptive to the “daily blahs” of life.

Autumn means a drastic change in the seasons. Spring symbolizes New Beginnings and Birth. Summer symbolizes Optimism, Initiative and being “Out In The Spotlight.”

Autumn symbolizes Transition and the approach of Death. Harvest of crops ends and plants begin to die. Animals shed their summer hair and fur and begin to grow coats for autumn and winter. Winter, of course, symbolizes Death. People forget the Death symbolized by Winter is the beginning of Rebirth.

Being an Autumn Baby is not an easy task. Being an October baby can be depressing; if you let it.

The Infinity Of October

The irony is the Octo from Latin and Greek words refers to the Number Eight; Not the Number Ten.

Julius and Augustus Cesar moved October to the tenth month. Month Number Eight earned the tenth spot in mankind’s history of Calendar shuffles.

October as eight works in the Grand Scheme Of The Universe because eight is the number in some Numerology disciplines that refer to “Infinity.” Knock an eight on it’s side and you end up with a design layout for a child’s toy race track and the symbol of “Infinity,” which is “Forever.”

October The Month Of The Supernatural.”

October is “The Month Of The Supernatural.”

You can talk about ghosts, a white lady, magick, the supernatural, the paranormal, walk ins, golems, Cabala, haints, Santeria, voodoo, invocations, incantations, Extra Sensory Perception, auras, Spirtuality, Spiritism, crystal balls, wands, pentacles, pentagrams, and New Aget topics, in any month, but October and November, and people will assume you are talking about a TV Show, movie or a novel.

Supernatural and paranormal words really aren’t appreciated out of the context of the month of October. October is the month that global civilizations have agreed by practice and tradition through the centuries that it is okay, perhaps, even necessary, to talk about “things that go bump in the night” in October.

October is the month when people are willing to talk about two topics that they seldom, wish to discuss: Fear and Death. Horror flicks set their world premieres on October 1 and before October 31 because “October The Month Of Fear” is the best time for humanity to go to the theater and share the worst fears in public.

Supernatural and paranormal events ignored and shrugged off throughout the year are acknowledged during “October The Month Of Death.” Perhaps, the Universe is sending an “Omen” or a “Sign” that should not be ignored.

Hunger October’s Sentinel

October carries a special month magick. The ancient pagan farmers may not have understood science and the laws of the physical world, but human nature has always understood hunger. If the crops of the Spring and Summer months aren’t put into a root cellar or canned then, Hunger, before Death will arrive.

If the livestock of Spring and Summer has not been cured in the smokehouses then, Hunger, before Death will arrive.

Winter months can be long, dark and an unrelenting cold, in parts of the world that leads the most faithful to cuss therr gods and goddesses. If Hunger is The Uninvited Guest At The Table, then, minutes become days and days seem to last for decades instead of months.

October is The Month When The Veil Between The Worlds Is Open.

October is The Transition Month because Autumn is in place and if people are not prepared for Winter and ready to stay warm and survive until Spring, then, October will remind a person to quickly re-think and prepare to survive Winter.

Darkness Days

In Leyte, in the Republic of the Philippines, it is still hot and the sun still shines in October. However, the days are shorter. In rural southwest Missouri, in October, by 4 p.m., the darkness of night is usually settled and not just approaching. In Leyte, in the Republic of the Philippines, 4 p.m., brings the darkness of night and not just approaching twilight.

Ancient farmers may not have understood the physical laws of Nature in their worlds, but, October and sutumn had the respect of the inevitable approach of “The Unknown.” Thus, “October The Month Of The Supernatural” can be respected, honored and observed as “October Month Of The Unknown.”

Hallowed Halloween

The crowning moment of the royalty of October is always Halloween. The day and night when men, women and children the world over can face their worst fears and hope to see the rising sun of November 1.

The importance of the month of October really cannot be overstated because it is the 31 Days, when citizens of the world allow themselves to face or, at least, think about their “worst fears.”

Halloween is the Global Celebration Time that encourages people to find a positive way to deal,with a year, or a lifetime of negative feelings and cast out their internal demons.

I love my birth month. I love October.

Ancestor Worship

Ancestor Worship is not a popular religious practice in The West. However, without those battalions of ancestors, who lived their lives and made their decisions, you would not being reading this article and thinking about your life.

While you may not choose to worship your ancestors, it might be nice to do some research and perhaps uncover the lives they led that set the stage for you to stand center stage in your life.

If any of your ancestors stand out that you find interesting or you respect, then, it might be a polite gesture to offer up to the Universe a prayer to honor their soul and life.

Welcome To October.

Open The Door To The Supernatural ?

Welcome to the days and nights, when you should feel free to relate to, understand and study Supernatural and Paranormal areas of Life.

Research and read about supernatural topics. Watch TV shows and movies about the paranormal. At the end of this article, I offer links to information that the World-At-Large only seems to appreciate in October.

If you are a curious person, then, the October Supernatural Subject Links should help to make your October interesting.

I do not have a Message Board or Discussion Forum. If you wish to address some of the topics that I have suggested research into in the Links section, then, please, post a comment to this page and I will reply at the first opportunity.

Learn about your Fears. Perhaps, you will learn to laugh at them.

Now, the fun begins.
