History is revealed to us in so many ways. Its political movements and the hijinks of actors and personalities from all sectors of society are, these days, an open book to us. It is amazing how much of the more trivial news in all this is absorbed as consequent content.
While Kim Kardashian’s new dress or the most recent rapper take the scene may hold value in some eyes, I wonder just how much of real consequence is hopelessly hidden beside the façade, the three ring circus that keeps us in a childlike stupor, less inclined to focus.
I am an admittedly naïve individual, even at 53. I believed in the Government of my grandfather and his, not by any means ever a squeaky, clean organization, but one that was still more, grey than black in intention. But, then Governments really cannot be judged as individuals like people locked in a certain faith. Governments are, by necessity, less skilled or interested in propriety and are more of an ardent believer in the terminologies like manifest destiny.
They, in general, are like married couples. No matter how happy and well-adjusted on the surface, no matter how serene or even benevolent the public face, there is always another set of expressions and beliefs voiced behind closed doors, more indicative of the big picture, one we are shielded from. There really is no complaint in this statement, this understanding, no debasing critic meant. It is just one of the inescapable, like the thorn accompanying the rose, or the stink of sweat with healthy exertion. Unfortunately these are just signs along the way, marks on the wall to show a child’s physical growth.
Really, just how much responsibility can we place on the Governments of the world for hiding facts, and all the other fearful things in question we lie at their doors, when for the larger part we are abundantly satisfied with our position as the horse plodding on with blinders, when we are blissful in our ignorance?
(“However be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you don’t forget the things which you have seen with your own eyes. Don’t let them fade from your memory as long as you live. Teach them to your children and your grandchildren. “) Deuteronomy 4; 9
I wonder, sometimes, if we are the only hope of our children’s real education, the schooling that seems of little importance to society. I wonder if the strange reports Lori and I have accumulated really are something that is kind to press upon another no matter how good and protective the intention.
I wonder if there is a complete truth in that scripture, one that truly serves the needs of all and don’t, by the necessity of its possible subject matter, only instead separate people in long held, immovable lines of logic and belief.
For over 3 years we’ve given ourselves to something we passionately believed in. But, in all that time the responses to the narratives we have left, the frightful pictures we have gathered, has been minimal. I completely understand, what can you say? I am not a priest, and have never been a temperament enough man to adequately pass on a message of this importance.
But we tried. A vehicle was lost in the effort and probably a few thousand dollars in gas, memory cards, cameras and computers that we wore out. Our health has been, from the first day of it, in question. I literaly had a new life laid at my feet with the means of controlling my illness and what did I do? We hastened directly into three years of nightmares. I’m tired! I’m done! I want to go about my life without the truth that hangs over our head, so constantly on my lips. I want to blissfully don the blinders and finally, as much as humanly possible, relax.
There is no way, no amount of time, no inundation of new experience that will ever wash away the truth, as in the scripture, one that I have seen with my own eyes.
A Clear and Present Danger
Author: Lori Carter
The Midnight Observer was first started back I 2008, a few months before our abductions. The intent of the site was not to log the weird, dimensional, UFO or extraterrestrial information that it has been inundated with. Our main goal was to track cultic, criminal and possible dangerous situations in our rural county and to alert the citizens, neighbors, family and friends as to areas to be aware in. Before we were done building the site, we were abducted.
For three years, searching for who and what happened to us became our life. The physical, financial and emotional toll it took on us can never be fully understandable to most. We would take our last few pennies to put gas in the “Old Grey Ghost, our jeep, to make one more nightly run. We always found something. It was almost like we were drawn to it, but we never found the answers we were seeking, but we believe we have shown that there is a clear and present danger, always around us, always around everywhere.
The pictures and articles on the Midnight Observer speak for themselves. Our lives have been in danger several times. We were stalked, threated and several times Richard was injured with no indication of whom or what did it and no memory.
We have secured our home and are always wary and observant of what is around us day and night. We never leave the house without a camera, but as Richard has said “we are tired, we are done”
We are not taking the Midnight Observer down. No, instead it will transition into the sight it was meant to be from the start. All the pictures and articles will remain, but new articles about the day to day problems, dangers and precautions of normal life will be posted. There will be commentaries, suggestions, instructions and informative articles posted as we see fit.
An article of the weird, supernatural or UFO type may creep in at some point. They will be posted when we are contacted by someone or hear about it from our friends. Our research has taken a large toll on our lives. For now, we are not planning anymore trips. This may change at some time, but at the present we have our health, physically and emotionally to consider. Please check back often as we will still be posting articles about “Clear and Present Dangers.”
Please continue to enjoy the site and contact us if you wish. Also please remember that everything on “The Midnight Observer, articles and pictures, is copyrighted and is not to be used in any way to gain financial increase. They also are not to be used in articles, videos, at conferences or in books without our explicit written permission. Anyone found violating these rights will be prosecuted.
