#RobertEmmetMusings 2020 True Story Life, love & death from a different perspective. Touched my life profoundly! Backstory (2013) This was written to a dear friend. The wife of a soldier (Afghanistan three tour vet), I worked with, about his “label” of PTSD. He had profound head trauma and permanent damage which left him unable to connect thoughts. He realized he would never be the person he once was. Him and his wife lost their connection yet she never lost her deep respect and love for her “hero.” He took his life after three years of anguish and struggle. For him it was his gift, to her. Freedom to find Love once again! She is a deeply spiritual lady and knew it, yet was in denial. A few months later she meets a wonderful guy who was an Iraq war vet. They became close and eventually lovers. She really loved him deeply but felt like she was betraying her “hero” and when he asked her to marry him, one and a half years into their relationship, she said “No.” Well, I called her to check in with her, about a week after the “No.” She broke down and I listened to her bare her soul to me for over five hours, barely saying a word, just listening, as she shared so much pain, beauty and insight yet couldn’t get over her “hero,” she wanted so desperately to embrace the future with this good man who touched her soul. She wanted to say “Yes.” At the end of the conversation, she asked what I thought and I paused for a moment...then asked her to let me reflect on that and write her in the morning. I was up all night inspired by the character and selfless act of her “hero,” my dear friend, and this is what I wrote that morning. The first four lines are re: parts of my reflections of our conversation. The last four lines came directly from her “hero” who channeled those beautiful thoughts through me. Souls connect sometimes...if we’re open??? Love is Forever You must love yourself to the core of your being. Yet not make your being a master onto itself. Can you laugh at your own human frailties and empathize with all who surround you. Does the energy you have inside, burn brightly and bring warmth to everyone you touch. When the love inside is free, you will set your lover free, to love and share without inhibition! Till one shall pass away! May the other carry on and share all the love inside them with grace the other bestowed. So that, love will be never ending, just moved on with another Soul. Epilogue She called him back...they are married, now with a baby son, named in honor of...”their hero!” Life has a purpose, as does death. We learn to value life more through death. It teaches us to embrace every waking moment, and never be afraid to love. Because Love is...Forever. NOTE: Names shall forever remain anonymous!

#RobertEmmetMusings 2021 The narrative: The virus resulted in the vaccine. The truth: The vaccine resulted in the virus. How do you know, . . . As always, follow the money. Then observe all the funding for propaganda. Edward Bernays is smiling somewhere. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” - Josef Goebbels - History repeating, . . .
