Seventies and Eighties and Nineties


By Anna Von Reitz

It never made sense to me as a young girl growing up-- that we sent our young men to die in foreign wars.  

It made more sense to send men in their seventies and eighties or nineties, men who had less to lose in terms of opportunity, men wise in the ways of the world, men who had already suffered the vague nature of love, the losses of property, the many slings and arrows of all the fates that guide our paths.....men such as these are worthy opponents! 

Not the callow youths full of flower and nothing beyond the lies they have been told.....not them.  They should not be sacrificed, who do not know what their own lives are, who have not been enabled to live, much less regret.

No, it should be us, the elders, who pledge the fight.  It should be us, who know what we wager with.  

These youngsters have no guess.  They depend on us.  They are our beloved children.


Let them be beloved.  Let them be....children. 

By whatever alchemy we have aged, the days and years of our lives have come and gone.  We have known our passions and built our castles. We have been at the banquet and know the difference between good wine and bad, between what is ours and what belongs to someone else. 

We know.  They do not. 

They are innocent. 

So yes, we must teach them, that obligation remains.  If we don't whisper of the sacred things, of what matters, of what is pure----what hope do they have, against such monstrous evil?  

If we do not direct their attention to the still, small voice-- what chance do they have against the blaring ego we have inherited, broadcasting 24/7 about me, me, me and I?  

They will be slaves to their own bodies.  Slaves to fear.  Slaves to every lie. 

No, we must fight.  Those in our declining years, those whose spirit again catches fire, not in the bright blazes of youth, but in the embers of who we truly are--- yes, we must fight. 

Because we most truly know the truth.  

Because our Fathers and Mothers handed us the torch. 

Because it is our duty and our world and who we are at stake, so these young people may know and remember --- when they are our age. 

I remember. 

I remember the G.I.s in the surf off Normandy.  I remember Verdun.   I remember the gentle rain in Vietnam.  I remember his early, senseless death, the one I cherished, beneath the white flowers and the green turf of Virginia, yes..... 

I do.  I remember. 

I won't forget.

I wouldn't if I could. 

I heard and can't stop hearing the voice of Goldie Williams, telling me her life, telling me the lives of her husband and her daughters, how they suffered and bled for no reason but the color of their skin. 

I know.  How do you un-know something?  Ever?  

I can't do it.  I know I can't.  I've tried.  I've tried to forget so many things, believe me. I have. 

It would be so very convenient, so pleasant, so easy, if only..... 

But then, here I am, Lord.  I can't be so blissfully forgetful, I can't do what good sense and convenience requires. I have no other way.... so this is it.  For better or worse.  I can't turn my back.  I can't walk away. 

It just isn't in me. 

I will be the worthy adversary.  I will contest with Satan.  I will chain him to the bottom of the estuary, and mock those who say that I can't. 
In truth, it is already done, a fait d'accompli, unto the final zum Ende.

There are no pleas, no righteousness.  And no excuses. 
Those who came before, both old and young, have done it for us. 
So do it for them.  

With all that is left to us, with all knowledge, all powers, and all flags flying, let us come, an army of old people, sagging at the jaw, weak at the knee, but coming nonetheless.  

Let us use the weapons of our age, our helplessness, our poverty, our senility, and our graves. 

Let us use our voices, while voices we have left.  Let us say what must be said to every ear following after us: 

This is America.  The land of the free.  The home of the brave. 

I am old, admittedly so.  Whatever roses remain on my cheeks can only be roses of shame, or a quick moment of life when I remember.

  1. Beautifully stated Anna and I concur, wholeheartedly as a mom that has lost the precious bonds of my sons through "enlistment" under false pretenses. Too young, and now our family has been maliciously divided, and has fallen.

    To sean(if you see this) or 1freeman, I could really use some of your experienced knowledge/wisdom to assist me with correcting records from process established by me 9 years ago. Any private assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  3. If we plan on having any semblance of a "civil society" for the next generation and all others to follow, we are the only and last ones to do it... Unforetunately, God choose this generation, our generation of the old, sick, and broke, to stand up once and for all and draw a line in the sand that no one will ever cross again..!! That's why Trump came now..it was in God's plan to wait till the world has become so evil that he is ready to expose it to those of us who have been praying for a better world and asking him for his help in doing it...!! I feel like we are living in Moses time..It woul dnt surprise me if he parts the water again and buried the rest of the world behind it....!!

    1. James, well in fact He is going to be doing some 'parting' except this time its going to be 'vertical' rather than 'horizontally'. I just dont know when or what he's waiting for; of course I always think he is running late with just about everything, lol.

  4. Anna, well it might be because we 70-80-90'ish'ers are too occupied nursing our aches and pains, remembering where we put our keys, where we left our glass of water, did we get the mail today, what day of the week it is, writing down the 3 things we have to get at the grocery store, and when we can't find a clean towel, we realize they're still in the dryer from days past. Its also very time consuming going from room to room and forgot what you were looking for; going to the kitchen and wonder what you went there for. The only exception is the bathroom. LOLOL
    That's probably why they dont wanna Draft us anymore.
