It all started with a 9/11 documentary called Loose Change. I’ve always had questions of the infamous incident from the day I saw it. I was in my freshman year of high school at Georgoe Jenkins. It was 2nd period and I was falling asleep in my Spanish class. So basically just another typical day of school. Then my teacher got a phone call. She said it was from her relative who lived near New York City, I believe. She was told to turn on the tv and watched the news. Something unbelievable was happening. She changed to a news station and there we saw live coverage of a tall building on fire. The reports were that a plane crashed into it. Now I’ll be honest, my first thought was, this can’t be real. How can you hijack a plane and then fly it into one of the biggest buildings in the world. How simple is that shit? To me it didn’t take much of a planning process to come up with that idea. Also, why didn’t they just shoot the planes down?….. So we continued to watch and then another plane hit the buildings. It was like watching a B rated horror movie with bad graphics. But this was oh so very real. After a while both buildings collapsed. I had no expression on my face nor did I feel much emotion at the time. I only remember thinking, how does two towers just fall like that. It didn’t make sense to me. I mean, I played Jenga before and the blocks don’t usually fall until you pull too much from the bottom…. I didn’t think much of it after that. I also didn’t speak out loud to anyone about it either. I didn’t want anyone to think I was some kind of crazed lunatic. Which brings me back to the movie. It opened my eyes. It let me know that I wasn’t the only one who thought something seemed weird. After watching it I became fascinated with “conspiracy theories”. I felt an overwhelming feeling to find out what else in history is not what it seems. I wondered if the government can tell a bold face lie about who was behind the 9/11 attacks and what the purpose of the attacks were then what else in history can the “official” story be false.
I researched one thing on the Internet and it lead me to another and another. I felt like Neo when he first saw The Matrix. I began a journey down the rabbit hole in which I can never climb back out of. The blinds were pulled up and light began to shine into the dark room of my mind. I became more enlightened about the decisions and stories that were and still are taught in our classrooms. We have been lied to for countless years about major events that have shaped our existence. Which is the main reason why they have push forth the false information. Look at all the laws and regulations that have come about since 9/11. Look at what happened after Pearl Harbor and the Gulf of Tonkin incident. The aftermath of those “attacks” shaped a generation of people. If you look even further back into our past and around the world there are numerous accounts of misinformation that was given to the public to sway or change opinions. Information used to enslave us. But inside each and everyone of us is that yearning feeling to discover the truth. To find out what really happened and more importantly why did it happen.
