The Labor Of Vigilance
Editor, New York City Combat Correspondent News
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Sep 1, 2003-- Today is
Labor Day. It is celebrated on the first Monday in September and
is a creation of the labor movement dedicated to the social and
economic achievements of American workers. To me, it the Labor of
Labor Day holiday was celebrated in New York
on Tuesday, September 5, 1882. It wasn't until June 1894
that it was recognized as a national holiday.
For many, it
is the last day of summer vacation. School starts this coming
week. The time of respite is over. The yoke of
work clamps upon the neck, and the plow must be pulled through the
furrows to turn the earth so it gives off its sweetest nutrients.
But there is another kind of labor we need to
think through today.
It is the Labor of Vigilance.
It is a true Labor of Love.
The Labor of Vigilance is plowing the fields of
Courage, Conviction and Right Actions for the Children's Children's
Children. It is about riding the fields of the Triad of
Terrorism, the rocks of Fear, the weeds of Intimidation, and the fungi
Vigilance is all about farming.
It is about keeping the fields rich
so that the crops--our children, and their children--can grow strong
and straight in the sunlight.
Terrorism is about darkening the
skies and fouling the soil, polluting our minds with Fear,
Intimidation and Complacency so our furrows, the seeds of our legacy,
stunt in their growth and learn to cower in the Shadow of the Beast.
and everyday ....labor to be the best Sentinel of Vigilance you
Vigilance Farmers carry the Scythe of Truth. Its job is to
cut down the weeds of Terrorism trying to choke the children, the
sprouts struggling to find their way through the earth's crust.
We, the Citizens and Parents of
Vigilance, must keep our eyes and hearts open on Labor Day for the
Beast of Terror.
It is the day we honor the Labor of
Love...the Labor of Vigilance...which means our children will be
safer, more secure with Courage, Conviction and Right Actions helping
them fertilize their growth.
Labor today...labor to be the best
Sentinel of Vigilance you can be.
Hold up the Pledge of Vigilance....it
is your reward for believing in the rich crop of the future--the
Future of Vigilance.
