I highly recommend David Chandler's videos.
  
It is fairly unusual for me to feel discouraged, but it does happen at times - yesterday evening was one of those times.  Perhaps I'm feeling discouraged because I've shared information with a lot of people - I've shared more than 300 DVD's with people in my home community and in small communities in Washington, Idaho and Montana.  And I have almost no information about what has happened with those DVD's.  I wonder what impact this documentary is having on people who watch it.  

This quote from Gandhi is perfect reassurance for me this morning.  

A few people I talked with me also offered this reassurance.  a young man that I met who had just arrived in Whitefish on his bicycle from Massachusetts told me, "You are out doing your best, and that's what matters."  Another person said, "You are having an impact - just keep doing what you are doing."

Finally, this morning I was able to ask one of the campsite attendants to whom I gave a DVD last night.  He watched it last night - he found the speakers to be credible and the science compelling.  This is good to hear from someone who watched the documentary with a fresh perspective.  He also said that he is not surprised that the American people are not being told the truth.  I was heartened to hear that he had been discussing the documentary with his coworker.  

This man's lack of surprise about not being told the truth is the most common comment I hear from people on the bike trip so far - and invariably people add that they are resigned to this situation.  People have lost trust and have little to no hope of integrity from certain government agencies and from Congress.   I do not have the answer to what any person should do in response to this situation.  The answer is specific to each person.  

I wish everyone would choose one action to open honest public discussion about 9/11: share the Experts Speak Out DVD with another person, make a donation to support us in our action, talk with a local law enforcement officer, firefighter or spiritual leader, ask a local radio station to interview us from the road, get Experts Speak Out broadcast on a local public access TV station.

“It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But, if you do nothing, there will be no result.”  ~ Mahatma Gandhi

This morning I talked with and gave DVD's to Sharon at the Catholic Church, Jeff at the Police Department, Chad at the Fire Department, and to three road construction workers who are cleaning up an old oil spill in the river.  I am grateful to all for being willing to listen and to consider the evidence as presented by AE911Truth!

As before I find myself inspired and moved emotionally with this posting. First, I've "been there before" with cross-country bicycling and know first-hand the dangers of the curves, traffic, Summer heat and steep gradients. Second, like so many others who believe in and work toward a better world and a more sane human race, I am well familiarized with the psychological challenge of which she writes. This is one of those vexing issues - taboo, compartmentalized, denied and derided. But the work for truth and justice and sanity can't be cast aside easily. God created us with the ability and the urgency to speak up on behalf of the victims of injustice; for righteous governance, and for shalom. Rena and Pam, in my mind, are responding with faithfulness to our creator's call on our lives. They are true heroes of faith, and love...and godliness. Would that more of us would answer the call! With grateful appreciation..."God speed."

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

That's one of my favorites for relief from despair.

You are making a difference!

Truth and Love,
Mark

Don't despair. Think of the butterfly effect. The theory goes that the turbulance caused by the flapping of the wings of a butterfly in North America can set into motion a chain of events that can lead to the formation of a typhoon in the Pacific Ocean. Everything is connected.

Great post. Here's another one from Washington's Blog that pretty much echos Gandhi's sentiment: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/08/cynicism-is-intellectual-cowardice-a-cop-out-to-rationalize-fear-or-lazinessing.html
