"Now you watch the parades and processions of hopeful and despairing people walking outside your tomb. They are all looking for the answer to the problem you know so well."

Lynette Alice Fromme- (Squeaky) (Red)- (born October 22, 1948)
She was sentenced to life imprisonment for attempting to assassinate U.S. President Gerald Ford on September 5, 1975. She wanted to speak with the president about all of the redwoods being cut down in California. I.P.C.R.

"I stood up and waved a gun (at Ford) for a reason," said Fromme. "I was so relieved not to have to shoot it, but, in truth, I came to get life. Not just my life but clean air, healthy water and respect for creatures and creation."

After serving 34 years in custody, she was released from prison on August 14, 2009. She had not seated a bullet into the chamber of the revolver she pointed at Ford. In a recent show on the history channel about the secret service and the protection of presidents, or some propaganda of that nature, a hero had been fabricated into the facts of the incident who had grabbed at the gun just in the nick of time and jammed his thumb into the hammer disrupting the firing of a bullet. It is fact from the evidence, and the trial, that there was no bullet in the chamber of the Colt .45. Lynette had ejected the cartridge that was in the chamber prior to leaving her apartment- the cartridge investigators later found in the bathroom of her apartment.

She embodies courage, loyalty, and a true understanding of the destruction of this age.
A hero of our time. In Honor of her day of birth- 63 years ago, today.    A.T.W.A.

“I went to the Capitol and came to court specifically to draw attention to the problems of the world that directly affect my state of mind and my physical body and to offer a way to clean up the world. This is my intent.”

“In this mind is the face of Charlie, but MANSON is the Mind. The Shaman, the seer, the visionary. He wears all crowns from thorns to precious gems and metals to cloth and beads, feathers, bone, sinew, fiber, and the dangling windwisps of whispered spirit and breath. He is the mind of all, of much unseen, unimagined or unrealized, of all we don’t understand and all we fear…”

“How can the social system be improved? It’s a crime to smoke marijuana, a plant, but poisoning millions of people through toxic wastes is business as usual. How much will you give up for the lives of your children’s children, which is yourself. How much are people willing to give up for Air, Earth. Water, Animals, and the coming generations? I think the answer to that is pretty clear.”

“Almost everything you eat or drink has water in it. No matter where it’s from, most of it’s polluted. Most of it’s got a lot of chemicals that we have to stop producing, it’s a simple thing. We don’t transfer it. We don’t move the poisons somewhere else. We stop producing them. We use our brains.”

“I do not have the answers and as a woman I do not intend to play my own thoughts over the truth. I can clearly state the problems and tell you that I suffer from them.”

-Q. What comment, or thoughts, would you like to convey in conclusion?-A. "Keep talking about moving toxic wastes, but never let it cross your mind to quit producing them. Keep judging yourselves in Manson. Don't look in the mirror. You will serve the Earth as much as she serves you, or you will commit suicide."
