Nightmares

If were one who believed in reincarnation, I would seriously consider my inexpressible sorrow toward the carnage perpetrated by the Nazi's in WWII as indicative of personal experience of the horror and terror of those who endured the suffering. It would account for my lifelong interest and identification with Germany during WWII, as well as the nightmares I endured during my first and second marriages. In those nightmares, I was gathering whatever children I had at the time of the dream, along with my parents and my brothers, and hiding us (usually in the basement) along with food, water, and such, from the soldiers. OR It could be that just being born during WWII and growing up hearing the stories told by my parents and grandparents about the war, might be the source of my interest. In addition, I read "The Diary of Anne Frank" when I was about 15, and it had an impact on me, too. As I watch "Schindler's List" once again, I am experiencing emotional discomfort. It could also be that since the nightmares only occurred when I was married to my first and to my second husbands, that the emotional or physical abuse is what caused the nightmares. I created the woodcut print shown below,early in the 1990s, which shows a person hiding from others, but also is descriptive of my periodic shunning by my four children.



The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!


Words and fears from somewhere in the foggy past have come forward in my consciousness with the news that the US will be bringing in at least 10,000 Russian troops to train with FEMA.  The reason given for this is that the troops are training here in case we have a national emergency of some sort.  I can't help but think of the news a few days ago that our President is going to have a new Caddy to ride in, one that sounds like it is modeled on a James Bond vehicle.  Nothing can permeate this vehicle.  I am also reminded of the bullet-proof glass that surrounded the POTUS when giving a speech in Germany.  I've never seen this before.

Now I ask you:  What is the "Emperor Who Has No Clothes" thinking is going to happen?  Are his low poll numbers giving him pause, finally, that not every American thinks of him as a monarch?  Rather, he is viewed by a majority as an usurper of some kind or other to the highest office in this land.  Things are changing, and rapidly so.  We should all be extremely attentive to governmental actions, more so than at any other time in the history of our Republic. 

As has been suggested by several news sources, if the Zimmerman trial goes in favor of Zimmerman, a race war may ensue in this country of many colors.  Does the POTUS know something the rest of us don't?
