This is from an astrology friend of mine this morning. I felt it important to share as he is far braver than I am in just speaking the truth of now and speaks of what I already know. What I wish everyone knew.
You have lost your movie houses and your restaurants, your sporting events, your parties, your weddings and funerals and churches, your schools and parks and playgrounds, your visits with friends and loved ones. You have seen your markets plundered, emptied, and closed, your cities burned, abandoned, and boarded up, and your streets and byways blocked off. You have been humiliated and degraded, stripped of your faces and your voices and your votes. Many of you have also been stripped of your jobs and your savings. Many have been abandoned by friends, family, and loved ones. Millions of Americans are afraid to merely go out in public, to simply breathe fresh air and soak in the sunlight. Millions are afraid to speak their minds. Millions more have lost their minds.
This is just the beginning of our woes. Before it is over, millions of us may also lose our lives. But not to disease.
This crisis, the Crisis of 2020-2024, was inevitable and necessary. It will turn into one of the biggest crises, one of the biggest milestone turning points, in all of US history. Educators of the future will speak of it in the same list with the Civil War and the Great Depression. I have been out here like a voice crying in the wilderness, warning you about it since 2005, pleading desperately for you to prepare. Prepare physically and economically, but also prepare mentally and emotionally. Prepare your larders, but also prepare your souls. You will temporarily lose many things, many more precious things, during this crisis, but the biggest danger of all is losing hope. And many do. Many already are. We get through this, most of us, in just a few short years. It is but a season in our lives. We survive this, and come out better off for it on the other side, a stronger nation, a healthier nation. But the path from here to there is not easy, nor pleasant, and it is not over soon.
Do not lose hope. And do not trust those who promise a quick fix for the troubles now assailing us.
