AngelicView: I remember a couple of years ago when we had the Occupy Movement, remember? People were marching in the streets in various cities around the U.S. Some of the groups were smaller and some larger. While some of us were cheering them on, I would say that probably most people mocked them.
They said, “Look at them! They can’t even decide on one thing that they’re marching for!”
I say, “There are so many damn things wrong with this country that they are marching for all of those things.”
Many people would respond, “If you don’t like the U.S., then move out. I’ll help you pack.”
I say, “Improving the conditions under which you and your children and grandchildren live is the most Patriotic thing you can do.”
When I put on my ‘Rose Colored Glasses’, I think, well, maybe things can change without people waking up – because it seems as though it’s never going to happen. Maybe we’ll have Divine Intervention of some kind and somehow the right people will make it into office that will change things for the better. Maybe… (looking at a Bush/Clinton run for President?!) …probably not.
This subject right here ↓ is just one of the reasons why we should be marching in the streets – every day. Not just a few people – but everyone.
Do you know that our food is banned in other countries? Banned. Did you know that the people in the U.S. have the highest cancer rates in the world? Don’t these things tell you something? Anything? Is anyone out there?
Get ready to hear Robyn O’Brien’s story and laugh, cry, and get angry.
Video Description: Robyn shares her personal story and how it inspired her current path as a “Real Food” evangelist. Grounded in a successful Wall Street career that was more interested in food as good business than good-for-you, this mother of four was shaken awake by the dangerous allergic reaction of one of her children to a “typical” breakfast. Her mission to unearth the cause revealed more about the food industry than she could stomach, and impelled her to share her findings with others. Informative and inspiring.

Before we released our speaker’s names, we featured a series of Speaker Teasers. Here, Robyn’s:
Real food, is that too much to ask;
Big industry, I take to task;
It’s time that we reclaim our plates;
from food forced into altered states.
AV: One last thing… in this NDE, the experiencer was shown that our food has been poisoned. (“An Eyelid Slowly Awakens to Dawn”)
