But Ford […Aaron Ford, the special agent in charge at the FBI’s Newark division] disagreed: “Any time an individual or group uses force or violence to intimidate, coerce or change the mission of a government, that is terrorism and in this case, it’s domestic terrorism.”
–unless it’s the government of the United States, then any opposing this become what they call insurgents.(insert own sarcasm here)

I’ve been mulling over this post for quite a while. It came up in connection to me standing my ground, asking for what I wanted, and moving through–what felt at the time, a brick wall. As I waited for more information to come to me, sorrow, forgiveness, expression, inner flame, and the soul’s core also waved their hands for me to attend them. This post is more fluid, a process, like the gasoline in the video. It has the many properties of fluids, with one extra–combustion. Do we hyper focus on the moments? being in the now, as is the current fad and buzzword? or do we flow along that continuous fluid and base our actions there? How do you feel?
