MAN'S INHUMANITY TO MAN
THE 52 VIRTUES
(Music and Lyrics)
This page is based on a series of dreams and visions which I will relate before presenting the material.
12-17-98 - DREAM - I was at a Jewish house helping to clean it up. There was a lot of work and remodeling going on here.
Outside, a guy on a huge machine with a big 'sucky' hose was removing a hill and making a wide smooth path. He promised to make me 3 flower pots I wanted and needed.
I wanted to go up three steps around the building, the stones of the steps were placed on sand platforms delineating them. Trying to go up the steps was impossible because every time I put my foot on the sand, my weight would collapse the sand beneath the stones. The last step I made revealed a peach colored stone that was almost the size of my hand. It was not round but dodecahedron and had a dark blue Star of David on it, with a large white circle in the center of it.
In the dream,
The Star of David glyph is a central circle enclosed within a pair of triangles crossed and interwoven. Again the two triangles are enclosed within an outer circle which leaves twelve divisions between the two circles. The central symbol, the circle, is the monotheistic symbol of the Deity; the triangle of Heaven, and the outer circle of the Universe. The twelve divisions between the two circles are gates, "The twelve gates to heaven." Each gate was a virtue, and these twelve gates must be opened by the twelve virtues were first of all, Love; then followed by Faith, Hope, Charity, Fortitude, Justice, Prudence, Patience, Temperance, Devotion. Humility, Understanding.
In the dream, I had a vision of Robert F. Kennedy's chair, typewriter, and desk/table which they were going to sell to raise money for a project.
Then they showed me a large rectangular shallow pool in the ground similar to the reflecting pool at the Washington Monument, however most of the water was gone and drained out of it. The voice in the dream said, "Look in the Northwest corner of the Robert F. Kennedy pool!"
End of dreams
At this point I did not understand what my dream was trying to tell me, so I decided to meditate on it. This is what I got.
VISION - 12-17-98 - A voice said, "Do a web search for Robert F. Kennedy Memorial"
I went back to the computer to look for 'Robert F. Kennedy Memorial'. I had no idea there was such a thing, nor what it was.
I found that it was a football stadium and I thought to myself, "Now what does that mean? A football stadium? What kind of a Memorial symbol is that?" I'm a football fan...The Green Bay Packers is my team since I'm from Milwaukee. I had no feelings whatsoever for any other team, nor particularly for Washington D.C. so there had to be a deeper meaning than just that.
I had to do more research about the football stadium and what the Memorial was all about. Here is what I found briefly.
The RFK Memorial Stadium. -
This football stadium shaped glyph also appears in the ancient writings of the Uighurs, in China, the Hindus, Babylonians, Egyptians, and in ancient America.
Scholars have determined that possibly, the glyph represents two people whose brains are so finely keyed to each other, that words are unnecessary to express the feelings of one toward the other when they first meet. These possibly are the two halves of man and woman which in bygone times made one soul. All the past is bridged at a glance.
The divine, pure love for one another leaps into life again in an instant. Many modern writers have vulgarly termed this "the man call". It is not the man call; it is the souls' call, mates. The "man call" is materialism. Materialism has nothing to do with it, because the call is spiritual.
Again, two persons, meeting for the first time, may or may not take a dislike to one another. One of them at least may take a dislike to the other and mistrust the other for no apparent reason. This is popularly termed "first impressions." Probably if their past incarnations could be recalled and they could see all that happened in them, the question would be answered.
It is thus that the last glyph refers to the Creation of man, and by the ordinary extensions given these very ancient symbols, including a continuance of... creation...man.
Lao Tzu in Tao te King, A Chinese book written about 600 B.C., just before the time of Confucius, we read: "Reason Tao made One. One became two. Two produce three. From these three, all mankind descended.
Because I still didn't know what I was supposed to do with this knowledge, if anything, I went back to meditate on the details of the dreams and vision.
VISION - 12-17-98 - The voice said, "Frank discussion of Robert F. Kennedy needed."
VISION AND VOICE - 12-17-98 - "When you get involved with the BJI and 133, it will win you 4333.
VISION - 12-17-98 - "BJI is 'trash removal'. "133 is sidewalk and headquarters". "Please see headquarters. If sidewalk is missing (which it was) please read article." "As a human we should do all we can do."
NOTE: The links to 'sidewalk' on the web pages I looked at were all missing.
NOTE: 1.3333333 is the speed of the sun per second in it's orbit around the galaxy.
VISION - 12-17-98 - The voice said, "ACCEPTABLE - ONLY ABSOLUTE READINESS".
VISION - 12-17-98 - I saw a meat tongs with a white handle. (I had just used one for the first time the night before). The voice said, "This is a device used to reveal all the truth".
It came to me that the football stadium stands for the whole of life, the people represent mankind and the sidewalk represents 'the path'.
Since I had purchased many books about the Kennedys after the assassinations, I was afraid that this might be about conspiracy related events, and I was troubled about getting into that type of negative subject. But, I went to get the Robert F. Kennedy books out and when I did, the voice in my head said, "No! Do not look in the books, only look at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial. "
So, there I had my instructions but still didn't know what to do with it. I did some web research and pulled up some pages, but did not get any instructions on what to do with what I found. After two days went by, I started to get e-mails that coincidentally started to fit in with what I found out about the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial.
On 12-19-98 - I completed my search about the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial, but still didn't have any clear idea of what I was supposed to do with the page and information, so I asked for the answers to these questions as the visions I was receiving seemed to make it more confusing rather than clearer.
On 12-19-98 - DREAM - I had a long web page dream where I was readying a Timeline of events which I eventually called 'evil' and then 'sweet evil'. I put the link just below the title of another page I was working on. I already did the work. It seems like I could just turn on my computer and it would be right there.
Later in the day, I was taken out of commission with total tiredness and was given these messages. I was laying down thinking about the 'evil' list.
12-19-98 - VOICE - "We can go to the bank and power you down!"
I was then again seeing a list of one word things that seemed more like virtues. I then got this message: "It is not contemptuous to teach a teacher a law they don't know."
12-19-98 - DREAM - I remembered that I forgot to put the list of 'evil' things on the web page and I was busily inserting the list onto the page and came to one I clicked on and it went to another page called, "The Lion King"!
12-20-98 - I was laying in bed after waking up in the morning and the visions started to come in. I was still thinking about what to do with the Robert F. Kennedy page.
12-20-98 - VISION - I went out into the yard. I saw a great tree that was all blackened and burned. I'm having a hard time trying to put into words the concept but it was that all the karma was burned up.
12-20-98 - VISION - I saw a page of 52 LOVE DOCUMENTS that karma is based on.
NOTE: I had found several pages of 52 Virtues yesterday in my search for information for this page.
12-20-98 - I saw a white scene I couldn't quite identify, either a cloud or a tree. The voice said, "I could present all the karmic information all at once but then it would be too complicated to understand."
12-20-98 - VISION/VOICE - I saw a dark message followed by a light colored message. The voice said, "I present a focus dream and then you miss the message and I hit myself in the head with my hand and say, "Ohhhhh Man!!!!!!"
12-20-98 - I pointedly asked the question. Q. What am I supposed to do with the RFK page. I cannot come up with the concept that is required.
A. VOICE - "Present stories of the struggles regarding 'Man's inhumanity to Man' and then present stories of good things that people do with the Virtues."
So forthwith I am presenting the information I found.
"Some men see things as they are, and ask why?
ROBERT F. KENNEDY CENTER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD
The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award is presented annually to individuals who stand up to oppression in pursuit of respect for human rights. The award reflects Robert Kennedy's absolute opposition to tyranny and his belief in the power of individual moral courage to overcome injustice.
The Award seeks to draw the world's attention each year to the work of one or more brave individuals -- the RFK Human Rights Award laureates -- who make great personal sacrifices, often risking their lives, to promote respect for the human rights of all people. This includes working to protect people from torture; cruel, degrading, or inhumane treatment; disappearance or summary execution; genocide; arbitrary detention or punishment; denial of fair, public trial; involuntary servitude; unlawful discrimination and other violations of civil and political rights. It also includes working to secure the rights to freedom of assembly, speech, press, language and religion; the right to participate in the selection of one's government; the right to travel freely and to change residence or occupation; the rights of indigenous peoples; and economic, social and cultural rights.
In every region of the world, there are men, women and children whose rights are consistently and deliberately denied. In the face of government retaliation, threats, harassment, persecution, isolation, torture and death, there are people who are moved to act on behalf of justice, to alert the world to human rights violations, and to work to advance the cause of human rights within their countries. The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award seeks to identify and honor these people.
The RFK Human Rights Award is presented by Mrs. Robert F. Kennedy each year in November at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. The RFK Human Rights Award carries a cash prize of $30,000. The RFK Center for Human Rights develops and carries out projects that support, enhance and complement the work of the Award laureates and that promote respect for human rights in their countries.
Nominations for the Human Rights Award are made by members of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award International Advisory Committee (IAC). The laureates are selected by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award judges.
THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD LAUREATES
The mission of the RFK Center for Human Rights is to support the human rights work of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award laureates. The Center develops and carries out projects that enhance and complement the work of the laureates and that promote respect for human rights in their countries.
The annual Human Rights Award honors individuals who, at great risk, stand up to government oppression in the nonviolent pursuit of respect for human rights. To date, 27 RFK laureates have been honored.
The Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights investigates and publishes reports on human rights conditions and campaigns to heighten awareness of these issues, stop abuses, international organizations and corporations to adopt policies that ensure respect for international human rights. By forging and maintaining close, effective relationships with activists working locally to defend human rights -- the Award laureates, the organizations with which they are affiliated and other activists working on related issues -- the RFK Center enhances their capacity and increases the impact of their work. The Center maintains consultative status with the United Nations.
By closely collaborating with Award laureates, their organizations and other grassroots human rights activists in their countries, the RFK center also works to enhance their capacity and effectiveness and to help marshal the resources necessary for their work.
The Human Rights Award laureates are individuals whose initiative and courage are at the heart of the human rights movements in their countries. It is these individuals for whom the RFK Center makes itself available as a resource. The Center responds quickly to urgent situations and initiates long-term projects to address chronic human rights issues. The Center gives the laureates and their fellow human rights defenders valuable strategic and technical support designed to increase the impact of their work.
From its offices in Washington, the Center complements the work that the laureates, their organizations and their colleagues are doing in their own countries. This effort typically entails reporting, educating and advocating -- with the public and with U.S. and international policy makers whose actions have an impact on human rights practices in the laureates' countries. In this way, the RFK Center has provided human rights activists with a vital link to policy makers in the United States and the broader international community, amplifying their voice in this country and in international forums. At the same time, the laureates and the human rights movements they represent often benefit from the attention -- and, sometimes, protection -- that the RFK Center's direct involvement with their work can bring. The Center's collaboration with the laureates and their organizations also enhances their capacity for effective humans rights work -- by disseminating their information, increasing their contacts, developing joint strategies and helping them gain access to resources.
The RFK Center maintains consultative status with the United Nations and uses the access associated with this status to raise concerns and promote appropriate, effective action.
THE INTERNATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE
THE 1998 JUDGES
THE JOURNALISM AWARDS
The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards were founded in December 1968 by a group of reporters who covered Robert Kennedyís presidential campaign. Dedicated to his youngest child, Rory, the RFK Journalism Awards are judged by more than 50 journalists each year. The Awards Committee consists of six independent journalists who serve as advisors and maintain fairness in the judging. Today, in its 30th year, the award program has exceeded the expectations of the founders. It is the largest single program which honors the outstanding reporting on problems of the disadvantaged. It is one of the few journalism awards in which the winners are judged solely by their peers.
Prizes are awarded annually for television, print, radio, cartoon, student and international coverage. At the discretion of the Awards Committee, a grand prize may be awarded to the most outstanding of the six category winners. Past winners include: Diane Sawyer of ABC, The Chicago Tribune, The Minneapolis Star Tribune, and National Public Radio. Known among the press as the "poor people's Pulitzers," winners have covered issues such as child abuse, juvenile crime, bank redlining and discrimination against people living with AIDS.
Carole Simpson of ABC News, who has chaired the judges panel, has written of the RFK Journalism Award, "This award is one of the most prestigious in the journalism community. It says proudly and boldly that the least of us in society will not be forgotten."
THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY BOOK AWARD
The Robert F. Kennedy Book Award was founded in 1980 with the proceeds from Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.'s best-selling biography, Robert Kennedy and His Times. Each year the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial presents an award to the book which "most faithfully and forcefully reflects Robert Kennedy's purposes -- his concern for the poor and the powerless, his struggle for honest and even-handed justice, his conviction that a decent society must assure all young people a fair chance, and his faith that a free democracy can act to remedy disparities of power and opportunity". The RFK Book Awards have received international recognition as one of the most prestigious honors an author can achieve.
Each year, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. and John Seigenthaler, the chairs of the Award, choose an independent panel of four judges to select the winner. Past judges include Alex Haley, Mary McGrory, Marian Wright Edelman, Stanley Crouch, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Nikki Giovanni, Archibald Cox, George Plimpton, E.L. Doctorow, Morris Dees, Anna Quindlen, Julian Bond and Richard Neustadt.
Mrs. Robert F. Kennedy presents the grand prize winner with a $2,500 award and a bust of Robert Kennedy at a ceremony conducted in conjunction with the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards. Since 1994, The Freedom Forum, an international foundation dedicated to free press, free speech, and free spirit, has hosted the awards ceremony at its world headquarters in Arlington, Virginia.
THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY YOUTH PROJECT
The RFK National Youth Project develops innovative approaches to the problems of drug and alcohol addiction, crime and violence, school failures and family disorder, with a realistic hope of getting youth back into the mainstem to lead productive lives. The project builds on Robert Kennedy's belief that young people represent America's greatest natural resource.
Current programs include:
RFK Fellows Program - San Francisco, CA
A mentorship program, RFK Fellows pairs college students pursuing public service careers with local youth and then places these teams in social service agencies throughout San Francisco.
IMPACTO: Imaginando Mañana: Pico Aliso Community Team Outreach - Los Angeles, CA
IMPACTO confronts the alarming gang-related violence in Pico Aliso, the largest grouping of public housing projects west of the Mississippi River.
RFK Fellows Program - Washington, D.C.
Launched in September 1997, the Washington RFK Fellows Program assists community-based organizations with specific programs addressing neighborhood violence. The program is an outgrowth of the Memorialís Washington Juvenile Justice Project, which created and implemented a plan for the appropriate treatment of juvenile offenders in the District.
Quick Facts About RFK Stadium
Original Name: D.C. Stadium
First Game: Sunday, October 1, 1961 - Redskins lost to the N.Y. Giants 24-21
Seating Capacity: 56,000+
Now that the Redskins have moved to Jack Kent Cooke Stadium in Maryland, poor RFK Stadium sits vacant every Sunday like a church without a congregation, its midcity location, Capitol view and Metro connection mournfully going to waste.
The venerable stadium isn't empty all the time, however. RFK remains home to D.C. United, Washington's professional soccer team, as well as a lineup of concerts and religious revivals Ė provided they aren't lured to Cooke Stadium, too. Still, the image of empty seats and tumbleweed trash blowing over the field on Sundays is enough to make any longtime Redskins fan a little choked up.

Now, that I have presented the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial plan which you are all encouraged to support in any way you can, I am going to present the personal plan we are all involved in ourselves. I would ask for input from anyone who would like to present a story either of 'Man's Inhumanity to Man' OR a story of someone who has done something that presents a Virtue in Action. I will post them all, hoping that the Virtues will win out over the inhumanities.
