Subject: The Vertical Descent…of America !

Dear Brethren (hundreds bcc herein- permission to forward),

Back in the early Fall of 2011, I was sitting on my porch one morning enjoying a cup of coffee.

Above me was that beautiful Carolina sky resplendent with all of nature’s beauty.

I heard the cowling of a hawk and looked skyward.

These birds of raptor never cease to amaze me.

Their ability to maneuver high in the sky’s above us while catching the winds is a thing of absolute beauty.

They kind of put things in perspective for me as it serves as a reminder, or should serve as a reminder, of where we humans stand on the ‘food chain’ and how Everything is a ‘network’ of God’s creation.

Suddenly, I was allowed to see what many have never…the Vertical Descent of a Hawk.

With wings tucked in, he did a 90 degree dive to the earth below him- straight down at an incredible rate of speed.

I stood in awe as I watched him come nearer and nearer.

And not 70 feet from me and inches above the ground, this bird made a sudden stop, quite literally, and reversed himself into an upright position with wings out-stretched.

With talons opened wide, he had a snake…. and with a calm of absolute splendor, simply flew away.

He saw this from high above- amazing what he could see that which I couldn’t, and only several feet from me.

I was reminded of the simplicity that surrounds us that many take for granted and that which many think they stand above.

We humans are like that at times.


No MATTER how far the human race has advanced & no matter how far science has taken us, we CANNOT duplicate the Vision & Aero-Dynamics of these birds.

And no MATTER the Trillions of Dollars the Pentagon has spent on the creation of the most State-of- the Art Fighter Jet, along with the most advanced computer systems that can read the pilots mind….Nature Reigns Supreme in her infinite simplicity above us.

Where am I going with this you may ask?

We humans have a tendency to often defer to another, simply because of the elite position they are holding.

We make the Assumption they are somehow superior to us because of that position….and we willingly provide & give to them- Everything….because,

we have been taught to think they know better than us!

This translates, eventually, into a Political,, Economic and Social Transformation….and simply…. because we have lost Sight of the Hawk’s magnificence!

We have given away, FREELY, our right to our Individual Identity that provided us with Nature’s sustenance if the form of LIBERTY!

In short, we have allowed this National Empire of Oligarch’s in Washington to ‘Clip Our Wings’ & Strip us Blind of our ability to see the Earth below us.

America is now in its Final Hours of a Vertical Descent but, unlike the Hawk who knows better and can stop inches above the ground, America CANNOT!

It will, despite ALL of its former greatness, CRASH !

This is what happens when we allow ourselves to FORGET the simplicity that contributed to our greatness.

We forgot how to ‘FLY’ & we forgot how to stop INCHES above the ground.

Instead, we provided others with this knowledge of ‘FLIGHT’ & trusted them with this sacred understanding and turned away to the comfort of our couches.

And, over time, we became dependent upon them to tell us when we could or could not fly….if indeed we ever remembered how !

That’s where I am going with this folks.

We have surrendered ourselves to another and in the process, lost our way.

We became greater in our own minds than what we thought we ever were and turned our collective backs on everything that was given us.

We forgot to look UPWARDS to the Heavens where one of God’s great creations was catching the wind and reminding us of our place and how it ALL worked together.

NO cost or charge for this reverence- just the simple majesty of FREEDOM IN FLIGHT!

When the Confederate Republic Lost, so Too did Two Country’s…but Only We Confederates Knew it at the Time!
