|Article Overview: Millions
of unsuspecting Americans are being assaulted daily by the Cockroaches
of Terrorism and doing nothing about it. Like a
computer virus, Terrorism will infiltrate great numbers of people with
the intent to destroy their will and purpose, and render them as inept
as a computer crashed by a deadly virus. Find out what
kind of anti-viral defense is within reach.

Cockroaches Of Terrorism Attack Americans Daily
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Mar. 26, 2004 -- Each day
thousands of Terrorist attacks go unnoticed and mostly unreported in
the United States.
The victims are almost always innocent,
most picked by random, and the end result of the Terrorist attack is
to create Fear, Intimidation and Complacency in the target, to render
the person under attack powerless and to elevate the "power" of the
attacks elevate the power of the Terrorist
These attacks are known as "cyber" attacks.
They range from people snooping into others private correspondence to
full-fledged injection of viruses that either cripple or crash whole
Some of the worst of these Terrorist
attacks are national and international in nature. They are
published to alert the world that there is nothing anyone can do but
wait for the holocaust to occur.
Currently Dan Dumitru Ciobanu, a Romanian,
is accused of making "Blaster.F", a mild copy of one of last summer's
harshest Internet worms. The Blaster worm from last year wreaked
havoc on businesses and colleges. Its author has not yet been
The 24-year-old Romanian faces up to 15
years in jail, twice the time Romania allots for the crime of rape, if
he is convicted of cyber Terrorism.
The degree of the threat has caused
companies to seek "hacking insurance," to protect them from losing
vital informational assets to cyber Terrorism.
But the individual is just as much at the
mercy of cyber Terrorism as anyone. Once linked to the internet,
the arteries and veins of information flow links one to the world of
both "good" and "bad."
In a way, the internet is the example
of the world, filled with degrees of Terrorism and degrees of
The Terrorism is always sitting at
the door, waiting, like the cockroach, for the lights of Vigilance to
grow dim so it can scuttle into the house and ravage at will.
Anti-virus programs in computers are like Sentinels of Vigilance, they
protect the door from the Cockroaches of Terror.
anti-virus program screens incoming data
A good anti-virus program, for
example, will sniff and scan incoming data and throw up red alerts to
stop it from entering your computer. It is similar
to Sentinels of Vigilance fighting off Fear with Courage, Intimidation
with Conviction, and Complacency with Right Actions for the Children's
A parallel would be you're
taking the Pledge of Vigilance each day--reading it or reciting it to
remind yourself the necessity to be alert for Terror Thoughts that
might afflict you or your loved ones that day, and how to deal with
One of the most common Terror
Thoughts we get is Intimidation. It is like a
computer virus that wraps itself around our brain thoughts, gumming up
the synapses in our brain cells, clogging our thinking so that we
begin to think we are less than, or not as good as, or worthy as
We need to run our Vigilance
Anti-Virus Program (VAVP). The quicker we can cleanse our
thoughts of feelings or delusions that we are not as good as, or as
worthy as, the sooner we can stand up and face Terrorism with the same
boldness it attacks us. Remember, the bully runs
when you challenge him or her, but, if our heads are hung low and our
shoulders sloped and we feel the weight of the world driving us into
the ruts of life, we can serve no higher purpose than becoming food
for the Cockroaches of Terrorism.
We don't want
to be food for Cockroaches of Terrorism
The VAVP will clean the gum and repair the
broken links in our synapses. We will become more
Vigilant. Our Vigilant Computers will spark with energy.
Think about Vigilance not as some
idealistic belief beyond your grasp, but as an anti-virus program.
Think about your computer as nothing more than a reflection of your
mind, and, the key to its smooth operation is protecting it against
harm--computer virus harm.
Then think of your children.
Who and what is their VAVP? Each child needs a virus
filter, someone to guide them through the booby traps of
Terrorism--those feelings of Fear, Intimidation and Complacency that
we all suffer from in different degrees.
If you are a Parent or Loved One of
Vigilance, you know you can serve as a virus filter. You
can provide the Tools of Vigilance to overpower the Weapons of
Terrorism. You can help a child or loved one fight off the virus
of Fear with Courage, to overpower Intimidation with Conviction, and
to turn the futility of Complacency into the energy of Right Actions
for future generations.
own Vigilance anti-virus program
But it all starts with your
installation of your anti-virus program.
Do you have one? If not,
you are vulnerable to the Virus of Terrorism, just as your computer
would be if it didn't have a protection system.
Install the Pledge of Vigilance into
your mind and thoughts. Let the Vigilance Anti-Virus
Program be your insurance that the Cockroaches of Terrorism will not
find it easy to crawl into your ears and digest your highest
values--Courage, Conviction and Right Actions.
