A video: Lilacs out of the dead land

Filed under: General Homeland Security — by Christopher Bellavita on May 7, 2013

I’m fortunate to work with very talented people. Last week, four of them (Kristin, Charles, Missy and James) put sound and images to the post I wrote a few weeks ago about the Boston Marathon attack and West, Texas explosion.

They produced the video in three days.

I think they did a remarkable job.

Here it is:

A remarkable achievement.

As a rule I prefer the written word to any alternative.

The written original was strong. This media slowed my consumption of concepts and produced a deeper consideration than the words alone.

The media — very much including the narration and other soundscape — encouraged a sensibility of engagement that was more whole brain even whole person than reading alone.

I am glad to have read it first. I am glad to return to the reading. But this contributes a great deal to my deliberation… and I expect it will be consumed much more widely.

Thank you.

Brilliant! Simply Brilliant!

How impressive your work and others…thank you for sharing with us. Thank God We are all Americans, Hebrew, Christian, Muslim and other with our respective cultures and religious preference, yet We are American and so proud….

I will now share this incredible presentation w/many of our First Responders here in Boston and throughout the nation so well organized, so well prepared as I watched on the Marathon Day here in Boston seeing men and women, professional and just those on the sidewalks and lawns watching the 117th running of the Marathon when brutality was unleashed upon fellow man, leaving sixteen fellow citizens with at least one or more limb blown away and others slaughtered dead or wounded by the Lucifer’s soldiers.

This media presentation will be seen by as many Americans as possible and again, brilliant! We are a strong nation and Boston where we are Boston Strong!

Again and again, thank you from all of us to the well-trained First responders at the side of victims in seconds after these blasts….willing to sacrifice their Life to protect and serve the best interests of our beloved Republic!

God Bless us all!

We shall never forget the blatant lies spewed forth shoulder to shoulder by those we have “entrusted” by precious vote at the “Benghazi Massacre” where our brave Patriots were so willingly left behind for self-serving intent, a breach of faith, treason I (we) shout!

“No People will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can they be easily subdued, when knowledge is wide spread and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when people are unwisely ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign invaders” – Samuel Adams (1775)

“If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be under the guise of fighting a foreign enemy. But, in reality it will be an enemy from within” – James Madison (1785)

“Hold your muskets high for all lawful purpose” – Christopher Tingus (2012)

To describe the theme of this WH administration and its intent, I turn to one of my champions (Frederick Douglass) to best describe the empty rhetoric and criminal ways of the WH led by Barry Obama and at State by Hillary Clinton….in their empty and less than sincere orations…

“Find out just what People will submit to, and you have found the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress” – Frederick Douglass

Sickening. A wolf in HSEEP’s clothing.

It’s all becoming quite transparent, I’d recommend toning down this kind of braggadocio.

For those keeping score, HSEEP stands for the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (https://hseep.dhs.gov/pages/1001_HSEEP10.aspx).

I don’t know what “Colum Jaddica” means, but I feel I should.
