Patrap's WunderBlog

9 years new

By: Patrap, 11:07 PM GMT on August 28, 2014

It all started Friday Aug 26th,2005 with the models shifting west to Nola, Miss. Gulf Coast.

Jr. was home from the first week of middle school, jus off the Bus.

I remember thinking, Sat,..action day, Sun evac day.

Sam would leave Sat with the Dominican Gurl's, Jr. and Teresa would roll out Sunday Morning.

They wouldn't get to Memphis for 36 hours.

I was alone.

They were all gone now.

It was just me, my German Shepard Nova and Sassy, my nieces Huskie.

It was late afternoon August 28th, 2005.

I would not see them again till Sept 16th, 2005 when I flew out of New Orleans to Memphis to reunite with them there.

9 years has past and were all still here.

A lot has transpired for me here at wunderground, most all of it fine memories which has given me the opportunity to meet some really interesting people.

When we were in the FEMA trailer in 2006 I began blogging about the whole experience which leads up to today in time.

Were OK, we've been thru calamity and came out the other side whole, a lot wiser, taller and stronger.

Tomorrow, we will remember what we lost, those precious lives taken way too soon.

We will ring bells, sing songs, dance and cry.

It's our way.

And I for one, am very Okay with it.

Great Spirit.....come

By: Patrap, 4:54 PM GMT on August 14, 2014

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Who has chased away the moonbeams?
Who has pulled a blanket across the sky?
Who will sing in celebration
Throughout this land that's bound to die?
Oh - that's bound to die

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Who will put an end to all this sadness?
Who hears the Earth that cries beneath the burning rain?
All truth reduced to piles of greed and madness
The accident remains the same
It remains the same

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Robbery and evil and the stealing
From the body and the mind for the healing
Of the spirit and the pride and the will of the land
(Grace and courage, honesty and love)
There's evil, there's evil, there's evil going on

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
I love my brother - I must share the seed
That falls through fortune at my feet
The fate of nations and of all their needs
Lies trapped inside these hearts of greed

(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
Great Spirit come - come on, come on
(Great Spirit come - Great Spirit come)
(Grace and courage, honesty and love)
Great Spirit come - come on, come on
It's the will of the land
(Great Spirit - Great Spirit)
The will of the land
We'll sing in celebration --

A warning to Ferguson, Missouri

By: Patrap, 1:00 PM GMT on August 14, 2014

Greetings world, we are Anonymous.

On August 9th in Ferguson, Missouri the 17 year old and unarmed Mike Brown was shot several times and killed by an officer of the Ferguson Police Department. His body was left to lie in a pool of blood in the sweltering heat for hours while 15 police departments militarized the area against protesters, sealed the roads leading to Ferguson in a vain attempt to prevent protesters from reaching the city. The police has clearly crossed a line in the sand.

For this reason Anonymous will not be satisfied this time, as we have in the past – with simply obtaining justice for this young man and his family. Anonymous demands that the Congressional Representatives and Senators from Missouri introduce legislation entitled “Mike Brown’s Law” that will set strict national standards for police conduct and misbehaviour in the USA.

To the good people of Ferguson, take heart – and take your streets. You are not alone, we will support you in every way possible. Occupy every square inch of your city. Demand justice, staying silent today could result in the death of your kid tomorrow.

To the Ferguson Police Department and any other jurisdictions who are deployed to the protests: we are watching you very closely. If you abuse, harass – or harm in any way the protesters in Ferguson we will take every web based asset of your departments and governments off line. That is not a threat, it is a promise. Attacking the protesters will result in the release of personal information on every single member of the Ferguson Police Department, as well as any other jurisdiction that participates in the abuse of this States own law. We will seize all your databases and E-Mail spools and dump them on the Internet. This is your first and last warning.

The time has come for more than simple justice for these atrocities. The time has come to draw a line in the sand. The time has come to bring those to justice, who served to protect us, not kill us.

Until justice prevails, hack and protest will replace it.

Operation Ferguson engaged.

We Are Anonymous.
We Are Legion.
We do Not Forgive.
We do Not Forget.
Ferguson, Expect us.
