This is definitely a case of “many hands make light work.”  You can help.  Get some AE911Truth DVDs, and take them to your local fire station, police station, sheriff’s office, churches, etc.  Talk with your neighbors.  Talk with students and university professors.  There are a lot of people in small towns and big cities everywhere who have not yet been informed.  A friend gave me his opinion last night that it is the responsibility of those of us who have received this information to share it with others. 

I've taken a few days off from outreach (with a delay in resupplying with DVDs) to take some time for reflection.  I made good time without stopping in every town.  As I rolled past small towns, Prescott, Red Wing, Lake City, Wabasha, Kellogg, Goodview, Winona, riding more than 60 miles each day, I had plenty to think about.   My first point of reflection was my own sense of responsibility to inform people about this issue:  credentialed structural engineers and high-rise architects have serious concerns about a government agency report regarding the destruction of the World Trade Center site on 9/11. I had to wonder:  because I’m out here on a bicycle, does this make it my responsibility to inform the people of these small towns?   And if it’s not my responsibility, whose responsibility is it?  And what about all the small towns that are not on my route, who has responsibility to inform those people?  Is informing the people the responsibility of volunteers at AE911Truth?

This is just my opinion - and I’m clear that this does not correspond with the reality of the situation at the moment - but I think that it is the responsibility of Congress to be aware of and bring to the attention of the people concerns about the conduct of federal government agencies.  And it's the responsibility of the media to inform these people if Congress isn't performing responsibly.  There hasn't been much action by Congress or coverage by the media.  
That’s why I’m out here on my bike.  Until the Congress and the media do their work, I guess it's up to the people to inform each other.  I do appreciate independent radio hosts and journalists who have kept public discussion alive on the internet, and visits to congressional offices by AE911Truth volunteers

My second point of reflection, as I rolled through and into the next small towns, La Crescent, Brownsville, Lansing, was, how do I feel about these people not being informed?  It was quickly clear to me that I feel sad about people not being informed.  Identifying why I feel sad took a bit more time for reflection, another 20 miles down the road.  I feel sad because I want for the people to have the respect of the opportunity to respond to the concern that the National Institute of Standards and Technology failed to include relevant forensic evidence in their analysis of the destruction of the high-rises on 9/11.

I’m out here on the road, riding my bicycle 4000 miles, out of respect for the  people.  People matter. And 9/11 was a pivotal event, not only for our country, but for people around the world.  For me, it matters that people have an opportunity for honest public discussion about what happened at the World Trade Center site on 9/11. 

I had a choice of which way to go in Lansing.  I could have taken more time off.  I saw a “city hall” sign, and could have rolled on by but I decided to followed it.  In just a short block, there was the city hall with a patrol car outside the door...I checked the door and it was unlocked.  I introduced myself to the officer inside.  He was surprised (as most people in this region are) to hear that I’d ridden my bicycle to his town all the way from western Washington, and he was interested to hear my purpose.  He wasn’t certain if he’d ever heard of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.  I showed him my business card, which reads, “…educating the public about the scientific forensic evidence of the World Trade Center destruction and introducing people to the experts.”  I explained that I was out of DVDs, but I told him that I could mail one to him.  He was interested.  I also told him about the Experts Speak Out documentary being the most watched and most shared documentary on the national PBS website.  He had Experts Speak Out downloaded and was watching it before I left his office.  He was watching it as I went to find some dinner.

After dinner I spoke on the street with on of the pastors of the churches in Lansing.  He was already well informed about 9/11, though I didn’t agree with him on all of his science regarding the World Trade Center site.  I took his address and told him I’d mail a DVD to him.  We’re waiting for more Experts Speak Out DVDs to be produced, so in the interim, when I receive another shipment of DVDs it will be Blueprint for Truth.  I trust he will benefit from the science in Blueprint for Truth, and I’m glad he’ll have the information.

I’m encountering cooler temperatures at night now.  Fortunately, I discovered back in East Glacier, MT, that 
I stay warmer at night by wearing my raingear inside my sleeping bag.  The past two nights I had to find my rain gear in the middle of the night to keep warm enough.  Daylight hours available for traveling and working are also quickly shortening.  

I may allow myself another day or two for riding with minimal outreach...I need the rest.

Great points made and realizations. I am sad also and sometimes angry. I ask myself how we got here. I have so much respect for you! I thank-you for your great work and commitment to this very important cause. Be safe!

Hi Rena -

Thanks for your great journaling, keeping us informed along your epic journey!

I believe that the U.S. Congress has not done its job. Our public servants have not been representing us. Consequently, we have to represent ourselves and our interests. I deeply appreciate what you're doing and will be providing more support as I can.

With love and gratitude,
