It was exactly a quarter century ago today that you were killed for spreading the truth. The media claimed you were involved in an "accident", I never believed it. It was the only way they could silence you. The media would always twist you defending yourself, your country or your words into "hate". All the brainwashed lemmings believed it and sadly you were always outnumbered. One man could only do so much, yet you did more than I, or most men did in your short lifetime to try to spread awareness and warn society of the potential dangers of their corrupt government's agenda.. Well, look at the mess your country and the rest of the world is in now and it only seems to be getting worse. There aren't too many men that I agreed with on almost every word they say or action they take, you were one of the very few. The world needs more MEN like you. You are gone but never forgotten, at least by me. You forever changed the way I listen to music and see the world. And it's too bad I wasn't around when you were confronted by a group of cowards who called themselves "Teddy Boys". Hope you're resting in Valhalla Ian!
