Gabriel Day's Speech
Grand Lake Theater
February 23, 2006
First I’d like to thank the dedicated organizers and all of you for creating this great event. Events like this are happening all across America. In my role as volunteer national outreach & networking director for 911truth.org, I have had the opportunity to travel extensively in the last four months – visiting New York, North Carolina, Florida, Texas and Illinois. An awakening regarding this important issue is definitely happening and it’s a very exciting time to be involved.
An important upcoming international 9/11 truth event I want to be sure all of you know about is 9/11 Revealing the Truth – Reclaiming Our Future - an education and strategy conference set for June 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in Chicago, that will move beyond past 9/11 truth events with a focus on strategy. We already have confirmed physics Prof. Steven Jones of BYU and Canadian media critic Barrie Zwicker as presenters.
I hope a large delegation of activists comes out from the Bay area to Chicago – you can keep posted on this by checking in at www.911truth.org.
I’d like to share some of my thoughts from a macro perspective as to what we are facing:
Albert Einstein said - In the middle of a difficulty lies opportunity.
I particularly try to encourage people to see the huge upside for all of us if we were living in a post-9/11 truth world. Billions of tax dollars would be redirected from our misguided foreign policies to meet real human needs and maybe then we could say we actually have a legitimate government.
The potency of this issue is astounding. When this breaks it should be Watergate times 1,000. The 9/11 truth movement holds tremendous power to transform our world. St. Francis of Assisi said - A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.
But staying where we are in Twilight is dangerous. If people knew how dark it was out, they would strive for the Light - but with Orwellian media domination hiding the truths people should know, militarism and near fascism can reign in America - hopefully not for long because I am confident in the outrage of the American people when they learn the truth behind the events of Sept. 11th …but to get there we need a massive campaign of grassroots education and strategic outreach. This is where all of you can help.
We all should be both Paul Reveres and Johnny Appleseeds – sounding the alarm and planting seeds of understanding. We can all learn to Be the Media – and to make the independent media movement our closest ally.
In your outreach please be considerate of the deep dark rabbit hole you are taking people down and balance it with the positive energy of the upside of this issue. I see too many new activists trying to beat people over the head with 9/11 truth. And be careful not to feel overwhelmed by the technical aspects of much of the research and the diversity of opinion within the 9-11 truth movement. The people involved are nearly all working in the same direction but sometimes their passions and fears get the best of them
I urge all of you to start with yourselves. Study this issue and master some key talking points. Then follow Gandhi’s urging for each one to teach one. Reach out to those who are willing to hear. Be able to give recommendations for the best resources in literature, websites, DVDS and books. Employ all the technologies still available to us. Do the doable – starting locally and with small actions.
And most importantly - have faith – it is often darkest before the dawn. Please reflect on the tremendous positive change that is possible for America and our world through the outcome of our efforts.
A 19th century statement of the Native American theory of existence by Morning Dove was:
Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission.
All of us tonight are on an important mission and I believe our efforts will add up to a great achievement in the foreseeable future and I look forward to having shared this journey with you. Thank you.
"For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it."
