The Lives of the Dead

Some of the most interesting people I meet are dead…

A Catalyst for Change




I wasn’t happy to die so young but my death was a catalyst for big changes in social and political strata. I believed in the cause, certainly. I worked towards change.  But while alive, I was a mere cog in the machine, no more useful than anyone else. My voice was not heard above the others; my actions alone brought no more attention to our goals.

But my death!

It was not my intention to be a martyr. I was not that brave. But I also knew that there was not much future for me in the status quo.

When my death was imminent, I welcomed it, knowing it would amplify my voice, give it power which had been lost in the cries and shouts of the movement. I was no longer a cog. My death became evidence of all I’d worked to change. I was more useful as a sacrifice.

    This is near and dear to me. I have a close friend in Seattle who is being killed in a professional guardianship fraud scam. This was all arranged prior to his and my births. I didn’t know this until a few years ago though – and going through the experience was horrible. I am supposed to fight guardianship fraud, which is why I was sued. (more than once). Just put a book out under a pseudonym. GUARDIANSHIP: HOW JUDGES AND LAWYERS STEAL YOUR MONEY. This is the international number one crime against elders – it’s quick, easy, and a multi-billion dollar industry. My friend was chosen to give his life for this cause. Your story helps me.
