Finding Truth in "Unlikely" Places
I received the following email from a friend of mine this afternoon -- and I think it's the kind of story everyone likes to hear. My friend is a pilot (and a member of Pilots for 9/11 Truth) and works at the airport of a West Coast city. He wrote:
I just had an interesting conversation. I was sitting at the food court in [the] airport on my computer and I overheard two TSA (Transportation Security Administration) guys talking about 9/11. They were definite skeptics of the official story. I went to the Pilots for 9/11 Truth website and took my computer over to their table and showed it to them. At first, they seemed a bit mistrustful, like I was going to launch into an angry defense of the official story, but when they figured out what the site was about and when I told them that I was one of the organizers of the [David Ray Griffin] event, we proceeded to get into a very friendly, lively discussion about several topics.
It was very refreshing for me to see TSA guys into 9/11 truth. These are working class guys who one could say benefited from 9/11 lies. They were given a new level of respect (and income) as a result of the increased security measures. I think it was equally refreshing for them to see a pilot who was on-board the 9/11 truth train (plane?). It made me feel that as a movement we are reaching into corners of society that may be more resistant to the truth about 9/11.
I would love to hear other people's stories about encounters with unlikely "Truthers."
I received his permission to repost this letter, knowing that evidence like this that the Truth movement is permeating society is always very inspirational to me. His encounter is such a good illustration of the rewards that can come from being "out" about 9/11 truth even when it feels a little risky.
If you have your own stories of "unlikely" Truthing, please add them!
