In 2010 Jakki and I split up and Ric, my 2 boys and I all moved into a house in Sacramento where Ric and I strted The Self Reliance Project to put a face to the ever growing Benefit Concert series. Ric started helping me with the web company and we were pulling in enough business to allow us to fund it.
We started putting on some large concerts but John, Ric and I were beoming increasingly disiluusioned with the charities we were involved with. We were trying to feed kids, everybody else was concerned with how much money they could make.
When John first started doing these benefits, I had no idea the depth of the hunger problem in America, it didn’t take too long to see it. John and I delivered a truckload of food to someplace. There were several familiesd there and I remember handing a loaf of bread to a 6 or 7 year old girl. and she looked up at me to say thank you and I thought she was going to cry.
The percentage of kids that go to bed hungry in this country is the same as it was 20 years ago! We spend billions on war, billions on polotics and just waste trillions and we can’t even feed our own kids? Or give them shelter? I don’t care how screwed up the parents are, this is unacceptible.
I was feeling the benefits were not going as well as I wanted.. Oh sure, we were getting lots of food to donate, but I had serious doubts the food was going to who we thought it was going to. I was sitting in my office and jokingly asked what ever power had invaded my life to give me some guidence.
That very second, the implant ‘Went off". This time it wasn’t painful like the first one, in fact whent I first felt it I stood up startled. It was a pulsing that started from my shin where the implant is and pulsed through my whole body ending in my head at a fairly quick rate but it was slow enough to feel it move.
Well I wasn’t sure what that was and I took a step towards the door and it did it again, exactly like what had just happened. Another step, it went off a third time and I stopped and as soon as the pulse from the third one ended it did number 4. Then nothing.
Well, what did I think of this? I thought I had gone frikken nuts. Unlike most of the other stories I had no witness so I didn’t say anything about it but it did startle me. I know I think it happened but whether it was real or not I had no idea.
