On the subject of everyday heroes

Dear Editor,

Sorry to hear your website was under assault last week. The article on Christopher Bollyn would have generated lively debate in your comments section.

I was privileged to attend Bollyn’s talk and found his experience in discussing the events of 9/11 enlightening. Among the various 9/11 researchers, Bollyn has his own unique perspective having been an active journalist in the mainstream media at the time and having lost his job due to his reporting of events as they unfolded.

Looking back to Oct. 1, I realize that while Bollyn is indeed a giant in the truth movement, the hero of the evening was Monika Schaefer. She arranged the whole event from start to finish and paid for it to boot. A lot of work went into scheduling the author, arranging a date, finding a venue, promoting the event, organizing refreshments and all the myriad details. She even hired a videographer to record the proceedings. You can access the video on YouTube via Bollyn’s website.

So what drives an ordinary person to take these extraordinary measures? In conversation Monika has articulated to me that she is passionate about world peace and she believes it cannot exist in a climate of lies. Like Bollyn, she would rather forgo some personal comforts than remain silent about the massive deceit in “the free world” today. Nor are her efforts entirely altruistic, she recognizes that the “good life” is a shallow dream built on the backs of the unfortunate. Harmony, peace and security can never exist without respect and equality for all.

Monika has accepted the challenge, let’s give her a hand.
