a letter on the sidewalk...
    #5964217 - 08/14/06 11:17 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

hello,

as you are here right now reading this letter i wrote, i am somewhere else walking my own path while you are equally walking yours.

i don't know who you are just as you don't know who i am. we probably have never met each other and it is possible that our paths may never meet in this lifetime.

the only thing that connects us is this letter, my message to you.

i write this, because i believe that there is more in common between the two of us than we think.

i live in this land, i have friends and family who i love very much, i wish to live a happy life and be free. i don't watch tv. i don't smoke. i am dissatisfied with my government.

now i don't want to be political with you. i think that talking politics does more harm than good. i want to be honest with you.

i am afraid. i try to hide it whenever i go buy my groceries, i conceal it whenever i drive my car, i mask it whenever i am at work. even when i smile i can feel its presence. i know why i am afraid. i look around at the world and see the reason. i look at people in the eye and see that they are afraid. deep inside i know that it is the same reason they are afraid too.

we are fed fear daily. i see it pouring out the news channels, the new york times, and out of our government, our president's mouth, and through their actions that affect our daily lives.

there is war. why are we at war? we were attacked. why were we attacked? who attacked us?

we are told that we know, but do we really know?

if you were offered to see the truth, would you really want to know?

to find the truth you must go out and seek it. i cannot tell you what the truth is because it simply cannot be told. truth must be seen with one's own eyes.

where can you find the truth?

to uncover the truth, you must first stop. stop whatever you're doing and look inside yourself. this is where the answer lies.

before we point our fingers at other people, other groups, other cultures, before we even point the finger at the government, we must first question ourselves.

then question our leaders, and then the rest of the world.

do question why our government is so secretive. if they are being truthful, if they aren't lying, then why are they hiding? do question your liberty. do you genuinely feel like a free person? are you happy with our leaders' decisions? are you content with the laws they make? do you feel safe under their leadership?

if you feel as i feel, question as i question, and are true to yourself as i am true to myself, then express it.

do find ways to express your discontent, and share it with others. we must communicate with each other genuinely. we will not create change by keeping our fears inside.

and change is what we so desperately need.

for us, our loved ones, and our children.

wake up.

turn off the tv

let us do what is right.

good bye and thank you for taking time for my need to express myself.

i wish you all the best in life.

i love you.

Did you find this letter on the sidewalk, or place it on the sidewalk? Or is it merely a metaphor?

Either way it's a good piece. Makes me want to print it out and leave it on a sidewalk.

This reminds me of an idea I had

I just write a whole bunch of stuff, sign it, email it to myself to prove its mine and what not, and just toss it around the city and see if anyone picks it up

But yah

Ok this is truly brilliant, I am about to print out copies and post them on as many notice boards as possible in my community, and I will even stick them on telegraph polls. It should stay anonymous yes? I would leave them scattered all over the sidewalk but I don't want to litter. Who else will print these out and post them up for the public to see?

I'm still debating whether I should or not

If they're good enough to be claimed, and someone else does, I can pop and say "MINE" and challenge the thief to write-off

Kickass idea man.

Finding a letter with that sort of content would brighten my day and open my mind.

Good luck!

put it nicely into an envelope, seal it, address it "for you", don't worry about littering, you can leave it on a park bench, book shelf, cop car, in a shopping cart, in church, or simply anywhere.

someone will be bound to come across it.

anomynity helps keep the ego out of the message.

it's nice to see the inspiration spark within you. good luck.

Too bad if I get caught up by the police doing it and they think I have connections to extremist muslisms who do the old "Anthrax-in-the-envelope" routine. :rofl:

I thought at first this was the letter from V for Vendetta, then I realized it wasn't - but I think that makes it even better!

wow, i'm suprised by the positive reaction. i've seen things like that written on the sidewalk and what not. my response is usually along the lines of "i don't think we are similar, because if you felt like i did you'd know i'm annoyed you're trying to get me to waste my time by reading all of this"

and thats why i haven't written my autistic mind control theory on any sidewalks lately.

I love this...

Great to see peoples minds work in this way. I feel the need to leave this letter around my community as well.

I hate the thought of stealing an idea. I think of this as spreading your idea and word.

i stuck a letter on a bench last night.

it was not political it was more an encouragement for the reader to realize that they are actually alive and must live life to the fullest.

i expressed that they were loved, that they were very important, and that they should be their only judge of how to live.

i emphasized that society and especially media are in the business of breaking the spirit and making us dull clones, and encouraged questioning of authority but that's about it.

i hope its found and found by a person that needs to hear it. i didn't feel gushes of love or anything when writing it so i'm wondering if when it is read it will seem cold or insincere but i more or less believe all the things i said in it.

it's a nice idea helping people out with random letters.
