Rider With a Cause: Islander Takes Journey for Truth

by Lin McNulty

Three months and two days biking across the country may or may not sound like a great adventure to many of us. Yet, it was just such a journey that Orcas Islander Rena Patty recently undertook to raise awareness for the nonprofit, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. She delivered the documentary film, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, to firefighters, law enforcement officers, and religious leaders in cities and towns along her northern route from Orcas to New York, passing through 11 states.

She departed the island on July 25 and arrived in NYC on October 27, just in time to have Sandy delay her departure via train to come back home.

The feature-length documentary film explores evidence from more than 50 top experts in the field, discusses how the scientific method should have been applied, and acknowledges evidence of high temperature incendiaries in all dust samples of the World Trade Center buildings. These high-rise architects and structural engineers lay out the evidence in the features of the destruction of these three high-rises that they believe points to an explosive controlled demolition.

I arrived home on Tuesday, Nov 13.  It's good to be in the Pacific Northwest again.  Rainy, warm, windy weather.  

The train ride from Chicago to Seattle was slowed by snowy weather.   I find traveling by bicycle to be in some ways easier than riding the train...I like being active more than sitting.  I did some reading - I had no interest in writing - but mostly I was just uncomfortable with the slowness of the trip and being stuck with time to just sit and think.  I appreciated being able to step off the train in North Dakota and feel the 8 degree temperatures with -8 degree wind chill.  I finally did feel grateful for the time to sit and think:  I realized that I want people to not focus only on the bike ride - what is important to me is the purpose of the bike ride, to raise awareness and open honest discussion about 9/11.

There was a welcome home gathering for me at the Orcas Island Community Church on Sunday afternoon.  About 50 people came.  The format was question and answer - I appreciated the diversity of questions about both the bike trip and the reason for the bike trip.  And I love the confidence that I now have to ride my bike in blustery, windy, rainy weather -  fallen tree branches on the road are a riding hazard that I didn't encounter elsewhere.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome home!

I am so proud of your courage to go out and spread the word.

If only America had more people with the courage to open their eyes to see the truth instead of putting on the blind folds given to them by the MSM.

I have donated to your cause. Keep it up and God Bless you.
