It’s an umbrella. Today, we don’t question why someone would stand outside on a sunny day with an umbrella. In the 60’s…America did (even if use of an umbrella had been a norm in the UK for quite some time before). People in the US simply did not do this. You use an umbrella for rain, right? Many of you will not recognize the photo. It is a famous one. “The Umbrella Man” from JFK’s shooting. The existence of this man promoted conspiracies of a top secret device created by the government to conceal a small projectile that could be fired by electrical wire from the handle of the wire out a barrel hidden under the canopy of the umbrella. I know, right. Ridiculous. Still….there are books…articles…miles and miles of dialogue about this guy. Add to the white noise people who swore “there was a second shooter!” “The shots came from this way! No…that way!” Is the narrative starting to sound familiar? Imagine if Twitter, Facebook, etc were around in those days? How much worse would the conspiracy be? Something so perfectly explainable as a man…with an umbrella…becomes a secret sniper… Yet we do this, don’t we? Why? Because when we can’t come up with a good reason for the logic. (ie: “why would someone DO something this horrific?”) then we have to reach to find reasons that fit. Sometimes the most illogical narratives fit into that reason (like government coverups) because we just CANT understand why ANYone would do this. There is a deceiver. He seeks to steal, cheat, and destroy. Sometimes the bigger loss in these types of posts is what I lead with. Many of you won’t even remember details about JFK. We’ve lost history. Our history is being replaced with the annals of social media and the narratives they tell. Don’t forget the past. Don’t be afraid to forge a future that isn’t formed by popular opinion. …umbrellas protect from rain and sun. …but in the hands of a world that NEEDS to make sense of what they can’t explain… …does the umbrella become a weapon? Or do we? I’ll trust in an umbrella to keep me dry or shielded from sun. I’ll trust in GOD to be sovereign. The demand is too great on me to bear.
