Day 214: 3.30pm

There is so much is going on right now in this world, that it’s making people worry, scared and thinking about they future and about if there going to be a World war 3. This what I have be note sting on Facebook and people are worry and scared about it and worry about they future.

People must remember that there been war thought out the world none stop and still going on till this day. When there war thought out the world from the beginning until now from world war one, world war 2 and to this day. The human race and the world it self still go on and we manager to rebuild from none thing and start over again.

When it come to war people die and people lose love once over there killing because of the greed of rich man. But we must ask our self this question about war that a going on today and about to happing soon. How long do we let this corporate government and rich greed man around the world keep doing this to us as human bee and keep going to war over power, resources and money greed.

How long do we let them keep doing this to us all. Do we as a people of the world let them keep on doing this to us and keep on going to war for power, greed and trying to rule us all or do we start standing up for something and start marching on the street to protect for peace and for change. We as the people are the once are in control, we make this world go around and can make this world a better place.

With out us there have none thing, they need us. Put the question you must ask your self how long well you let them continued doing this to us all or well you get up and stand up for change and for bring peace thought out this world we live in.

To me I’m getting up and going make a stand for change and for Peace. Not setting around waiting for the world to end and let it burn it self to Peace. You have the choice to make the difference so think about it.

Day 216: 1pm

How far well you go to make a difference in this world we live in. Well out of all the inspired movie I have seen over the year well it was one that catch my heart and it was Hawksaw ridges movie. One of the most amazing and inspired movie of all time telling a story about a man name Doss Desmond who was a medical detachment that never fired a single bull when he was servicing in world war 2. A man without a gun never fired a bull and save 75 man on a battle ground call hacksaw ridges. If the American never took Hawksaw ridge they couldn’t get Japan. Here one of the scene from the movie Hawksaw ridges that inspired me. Also this movie is base on a true story.

Medal of Honor Citation:

The President of the United States in the name of The Congress takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to DOSS, DESMOND T.
Rank and organization: Private First Class, U.S. Army, Medical Detachment, 307th Infantry, 77th Infantry Division. Place and date: Near Urasoe Mura, Okinawa, Ryukyu Islands, 29 April-21 May 1945. Entered service at: Lynchburg, Va. Birth: Lynchburg, Va. G.O. No.: 97, 1 November 1945.
Citation: He was a company aid man when the 1st Battalion assaulted a jagged escarpment 400 feet high As our troops gained the summit, a heavy concentration of artillery, mortar and machinegun fire crashed into them, inflicting approximately 75 casualties and driving the others back. Pfc. Doss refused to seek cover and remained in the fire-swept area with the many stricken, carrying them 1 by 1 to the edge of the escarpment and there lowering them on a rope-supported litter down the face of a cliff to friendly hands. On 2 May, he exposed himself to heavy rifle and mortar fire in rescuing a wounded man 200 yards forward of the lines on the same escarpment; and 2 days later he treated 4 men who had been cut down while assaulting a strongly defended cave, advancing through a shower of grenades to within 8 yards of enemy forces in a cave’s mouth, where he dressed his comrades’ wounds before making 4 separate trips under fire to evacuate them to safety. On 5 May, he unhesitatingly braved enemy shelling and small arms fire to assist an artillery officer. He applied bandages, moved his patient to a spot that offered protection from small arms fire and, while artillery and mortar shells fell close by, painstakingly administered plasma. Later that day, when an American was severely wounded by fire from a cave, Pfc. Doss crawled to him where he had fallen 25 feet from the enemy position, rendered aid, and carried him 100 yards to safety while continually exposed to enemy fire. On 21 May, in a night attack on high ground near Shuri, he remained in exposed territory while the rest of his company took cover, fearlessly risking the chance that he would be mistaken for an infiltrating Japanese and giving aid to the injured until he was himself seriously wounded in the legs by the explosion of a grenade. Rather than call another aid man from cover, he cared for his own injuries and waited 5 hours before litter bearers reached him and started carrying him to cover. The trio was caught in an enemy tank attack and Pfc. Doss, seeing a more critically wounded man nearby, crawled off the litter; and directed the bearers to give their first attention to the other man. Awaiting the litter bearers’ return, he was again struck, this time suffering a compound fracture of 1 arm. With magnificent fortitude he bound a rifle stock to his shattered arm as a splint and then crawled 300 yards over rough terrain to the aid station. Through his outstanding bravery and unflinching determination in the face of desperately dangerous conditions Pfc. Doss saved the lives of many soldiers. His name became a symbol throughout the 77th Infantry Division for outstanding gallantry far above and beyond the call of duty.

I’m a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and a Yulparitja man from the West of Australia. I will be walking across country from Matagarup/Heirrison Island in Perth to Parliament House in Canberra, following songlines and visiting communities along the way, where I will eventually be seeking audience with the Prime Minister and address the many injustices against the First Nations people of this land.
