I spent 09/11/11 with NOBODY. As the media tried to scare the shit out of everybody this weekend with their fear campaign that we are not safe, The Me Nobody Knows stopped in through SoHo to spread a message of love and peace on the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2011 attacks in New York. The media advised us to be vigilant this weekend only and that we should be on the look out for terrorists. Per the media, it will be ok to plug back into your devices, and be as selfish and numb as possible to the rest of the world after this day is over. Sadly, they should be making these types of reminders all the time, because I am sure you’ve discovered this too – most people are totally clueless.
I resent all the police I saw on the streets this weekend and I felt less safe, to be perfectly honest. I am much more worried for my life when an armed guard standing inches from me can pull the trigger first and ask questions later. I’ll take my chances with danger. This world is a dangerous place. Do you think it’s going to get safer any time soon when more and more things are getting even more out of whack than normal? NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that one out!
As of 8 pm, no incidents were reported. I really hope people are starting to realize that you are being lied to. You are being fed the doom and gloom package of hate, negativity and fear to keep you in submission. If you really want to honor those people that lost their lives on that really horrible day, please wake up! Our freedom was severely cut 10 years ago and it seems more and more liberties are being taken from us under the guise of “protecting us.” Each person has their own destiny to live and I don’t appreciate the media trying to dictate what mine should be. I stopped listening to the news about 10 years ago because I am of the belief you can live a happy life in spite of the challenges we face. I am a living example of it, in fact!
Don’t you find it ironic that graffiti is considered a crime when the people on Wall Street, the true terrorists, are roaming the streets freely? I encourage you to all become part of the solution instead of the problem by using your voice to speak up about the injustices we are facing. NOBODY can’t do it for you. You have to do it for yourself. Be a SOMEBODY!
