I put this challenge out...
This year of 2021 is going to be the 20 year anniversary of the most deadly attack on the soil of the #UnitedStatesofAmerica, #11September. There is a component missing for which many civilians as well as #military, #lawenforcement, #firedepartment, and #EMS in my opinion may not believe the reality of the elected officials throughout the United States of America as to be human and have any emotions. I know I personally have given my account of what I dealt with on that day and though there are some #Congress and #Senators who were not in elected offices they are currently in, I think each person should truthfully think about the reality of where they were on that day as well as what was done at the time of.
While there have been those I have known over the years who did not realize the internalization of what had occurred at that time when looking back at the initial first year of the event, which in my opinion there are those who survived the #PearlHarbor attack who probably wished they had social media at the time of to document in fuller details as to various perspectives to assist in the historical learning points from the immediate and post after effects. However also taking into consideration the quiet feelings which possibly back then they began journaling, for themselves. Many now seem to post what they see as pretty or where they would rather take their thoughts to in ways which to ignore certain situations, some possibly considered as repressed in various ways.
I cannot truthfully deny the hypothetical possibility due to the after effects from my #PsalmSunday 2000 head injury the memory difficulties because of the amount of situations in my life at the time, in reference to the time after the head injury as well as before the head injury. I wish the reality of the Drill Sergeant throwing me into the metal portion of the bunk, though I cannot tell a lie though the issue of having been so has been for awhile honestly. I had a childhood upbringing of which it was better to tell the truth at all times, because of knowing what the full portions of the consequences would be for me as a child and teenager. However not everyone else has had such an upbringing, there are those who know and understand the portions of.
In such I would guesstimate the equivalent of those who were children at the time compared to teenagers compared to young adults compared to adults and so on and so forth to the elderly each had their own experiences both in reference to Pearl Harbor, as well as to #11September2001. In reference to the events of those who survived Pearl Harbor, I would guesstimate they would agree the ability to record such events the way possible with social media now may have caused a different outcome in reference to certain attitudes toward the current events and social situations as they way many had for the events in regards of 11 September 2001. There are those who were children then which their experiences are not as well known as those who were elderly comparatively who may not have evaluated those portions of time, which brings me to my challenge for each person to do a bit of homework.
As it is just a little over 6 months to the time of 11 September 2021 I challenge an internal reflection for a lengthier discussion proceeding the time to write in a way which keeps the focus upon going in your mind back to that time, to truthfully assess everything you can remember from that day. Then do the same for that first seven days, and repeat for the first full month. I know this could be considered as a difficult process especially for those who were in the area of and/or knew people in the area at the time, or #airports. Those who are elected officials now who were officials back then, possibly this is a way to show your human side to those who have not thought you have feelings. The same in reference to military, law enforcement, fire department, and EMS where it could be considered as possible since there have been many who did not think about the details in different areas of the country. In regards of those outside such positions such as #musicians, #artists, #actresses, #actors, #models, #bakers, #businessowners, and so on and so forth; I encourage such as well for a fuller account in an #essay format, in comparison to memes or pictures just the same. I think a minimum of 10 pages is possible with double space, font size 12, New Times Roman font preferably that way everyone is on an even keel. I also encourage those in elected office who may not have have been in elected office, at those times. In some ways I personally prefer to know such admittedly selfishly, though I think the situation would open the eyes and hearts to many more for clearer views to see the connection point of which not to forget the past of the long term past though also look to see what has occurred in the short term past. Acknowledge the good which has occurred while also acknowledging the fact much progress has happened because of learning from the past in both lengths of time to the modern era.
Do I under stand from the knowledge there are military, law enforcement, fire department, and EMS which cannot necessarily go into specific details because of specific location or mission at the time? Yes, I can know that is a portion for certain specific situations. However there are still portions of those particular details which can be disclosed for your own healing, so you too can forgive yourselves. Part of healing comes with acknowledging where various portions of situations in life were compared to where they are, and that comes in multiple facets to take into consideration. Thus a city or at minimum a state is a possibility to start if certain other details cannot be disclosed, though there are some which are capable for such.
Please know, I am not being hypocritical as I have done so in a long amount of details. Some I have not been happy to have to acknowledge because of that which had to be overcome, was admittedly difficult to process on top of the additional portions of the after effects from my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury being just over one year when 11 September 2001 occurred in my life as well. It was what it was, and it is what it is. I have gone through such and accepted the reality of what was needed at the time despite the circumstances to get to that point where what I could do from where I was, had been a slippery as silk. However I have gone through such personally and I wonder if there are those who have taken a step back to reevaluate the situations, to be able to heal to recalibrate themselves. Some I know threw themselves into their work, others threw themselves into other choices, some forced themselves into their books or schoolwork, while others simply went along their day.
The five senses are known in reference to touch, taste, smell, hear, and see. There are the five aspects of each individual as there is the physical, the emotional, the mental, the sexual, and the spiritual to review for such. The seven chakras which start at the base root of one's footing for each aspect, the proverbial gut feeling or instinct is after the heartrate increases the flow. Then is the heart feelings in each to the verbalized in whichever way, to lead to the mindfulness which each had and has to think in a higher way. This proverbial or metaphorical #homework is also to view the short term time personally for each though into the long term because of the 20 timeframe arriving shortly pun intended, to see how far you have gone in whichever ways to then evaluate what it is that has been both negative as well as positive. In reference to the negative then think about what needs to occur to better the situation as best as possible to come to closure with such, as in regards of the positives move forward to be grateful and appreciative for. It could be something such as someone brought a fresh cup of coffee to be grateful for all the way to coming across your one to moving on from whatever situations that were at the time, and acknowledge the progress of such.
For those who were born from 1998 through to 2006 who may not remember because of age at the time, your essay should be formatted the same though a minimum of 10 pages. Research both the Pearl Harbor attack, as well as 11 September 2001 attacks. Research the changes which occurred most notably in #science, #technology, #historical points which have progressed forward from those times as well as in #medicine, #religion, #spirituality, #artwork of a minimum of 3-5 types, #television, #movies, #videogames, and #fashion for a minimum of 3-5 genres or styles. From there pull up a map of the world to randomly point to 3-5 places somewhere outside of the country you live(d) in at the time from your birth to research what was occurring there during the time, and the progression of the areas since. When you are completed look at how much has changed since then and think of what could be done to positively assist the situations you see at hand, to begin looking for the steps forward to such aspects to achieve the betterment. For those born after 2007 I think those from the prior portions can listen to those reports to explain a few additional aspects, to then speak with the elders for such to get their perspectives and learn from as well.
I think this in depth discussion needs to be brought more to the surface to see the progress #humanity has made in leaps and bounds though not denying the darker side of that same coin, which I think is where the situations seemingly have disconnected many from the reality in a varied level of evaluations. If possible I think more would be surprised with themselves and those around them to see what to look forward to, as well as to aspire to in conjunction with what work it takes to prepare for the route of success.
Possibly a bit lofty in having a hunch there might be some uncovered realities for some, though I think and hope in a positive way for the benefit of many areas of life. I know and understand it is not always the prettiest to look back to certain situations, however the way to heal from such is to work through the darkest of places to find the different bits of beauty which light up such points in various ways to look forward to future possibilities in a better way.
