IN MEMORY OF MRS BaNZai7...
My Mom passed away two weeks ago today.
Many of you know that she was an avid reader of Zero Hedge.
While it is true that she read every Banzai7 post including all of the comments and links, she also read many of the other posts on the site, particularly those that she was able to navigate without a background in finance (try though she did).
My Mom and Dad both survived the worst hardship and suffering inflicted in the middle of the last century, in particular WWII.
It is no surprise she hated everything about war and the corruption that we know goes with it.
Consequently, she was one of my two main barometers when it came to measuring the current state of world affairs against the past, the other being my Dad.
As I have mentioned, she was appalled by everything that has happened since 9/11 and more recently the kleptofascist freakshow we call Wall Street and Vichy DC. For a person in her mid-eighties, she had an uncanny grasp of what was happening and made no secret of it. She got some of the names mixed up at times, Ben Corzine, Lloyd Bernanke etc., but she knew the score.
Her demise was unexpected and although she was thoroughly disgusted by current events, I am pleased to report that she was cheerfully living a pleasant and active life style to the very end.
I was with her during her final moments via two iPads and made a point of telling her, among other important things, that we were not going to war in Syria and I am sure she heard what I said about the latest episode of the Obozo show.
Rather than keeping this to myself, I have decided to share it with you for two reasons.
First, many of you have said some very nice things here that were meant as a compliment to her. I want you to know that those comments did not go unnoticed and genuinely made her day. They served as a direct affirmation of her unequivocable support for what I have been doing since 2008.
On her behalf, thank you.
Second, as I now do these posts I am still comforted by the warm feeling of knowing how much she approved. I won't be able to review the posts with her daily on Skype (sorry NSA), but I know what she would have thought and that just quadruples my resolve to keep doing what I am doing.
It is estimated that 250 people attended Mom's memorial service, a standing room only crowd.
This was a person who touched many people in a positive way and will be deeply missed in her community.
During all the frustration we have experienced during the past several years she would constantly recite the serenity prayer:
“Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Wise words to follow.
This one's for you Mom...
Your loving son,
