They Are Coming
I'm not sure why the news surprised me. Nor am I sure why it suddenly feels as though I have been betrayed. More so than ever before. The news this week of congress giving an ok for DHS to go forward with the plans to have drones to fly over the U.S. has struck in me a deep dark chord. It's not like I am naive enough to believe that I didn't know it would come to this. The betrayal I feel is somewhat surprising to me though. I have watched as our rights and our constitution have been eroded almost beyond recognition over the past few years. With this news though, I think it has finally sunk into my head (and in my heart as well) just how bad things have become. It seems the train has left the tracks and is now spiraling down into some deep cavern, plunging into a new dark future. I'm not sure where we are going or even how long we have left anymore. I can only hope that we can rise up out of the darkness and somehow find the light of liberty once again.
