A Milestone Reached
Jan 13, 2016 — 1,000 signatures collected! I would like to offer my heartfelt gratitude to all those who supported this petition. I could not have imagined when it started, that it would reach this point. It will be with great pleasure that I deliver these signatures to U.S. President Obama, The U.S. Senate, Attorney General of the U.S., and Secretary-General of the UN, Ban-Ki Moon.
I continue to hold out hope that the petition will draw the attention of the media. I have sent out numerous letters to various media outlets, which included links to the petition. I received only one response, which eventually fizzled due to insufficient evidence.
Highly publicized petitions have great influence over the masses. Collected signatures reach epic proportions, and usually capture the attention of lawmakers and other influential people. It is a win-win situation.
The reason there has not been a resolution to this issue is the lack of solid-proof/hard-evidence. Unfortunately, photos of burns over ones body, and videotapes of suspicious people driving erratically, is not going to do it. Judicial processes, in this day and age, require a substantial amount of evidence before they will act. We are living in a visual world. People want to see, they want to touch. If they can't do this, then it might as well not exist. The human mind itself has always been suspicious of the unseen. To conceive that something exists, but can not be seen is a hard pill to swallow for many. There are some in the population, very sensitive to their surroundings, who are aware and even interact with the unseen. However, trying to convince other persons who value proof above all else, of this existence, is like trying to convince a child that vegetables are tasty.
Going forward, i plan to address the important issue of solid-proof/hard-evidence with any organization i come in contact with. Trying to explain the invisibility of this new technology in a highly-visible world is no easy task, but it is definitely worth a try.
