Driving Through States...

Posted by

I am teaching and giving treatments as I travel through USA on my way to the American Society of Dowsers Annual Conference. On the way I think a lot about how history connects countries and nations, who were those people, who could change the direction of a whole country due to their love for humanity. In case of States and Poland – that would be Tadeusz Kosciuszko. He, who has the second largest, after Lincoln, amount of monuments in the entire United States!

Statues and monuments are one thing, but what do we know about this amazing man, who came to America in the 18-th century to fight for freedom for people, who he barely knew. African Americans, Caucasians and Natives Americans. Colour of skin, nationality or gender did not matter to him; his driving force was purely in pursuit of freedom. Due to his achievements and bravery he became close friends with the American president at that time, Thomas Jefferson.

Today, how many people know that West Point has been designed and build under the supervision of Kosciuszko? Kosciuszko intended and indicated in his will, for his life savings to be dedicated to help slaves establish themselves? It never happened, but he truly wanted it, just time wasn’t right.

So Kosciuszko was a man beyond his times. He had foreseen future and acted as a true human being. But there was more like him – people who outrun their times and were never understood. Some of them were Polish, but many were from other countries around the world, which came to this country to exercise their vision of brighter future for humanity.

Do you know what your ancestry is? Who were not only your parents and grandparent, but also all those people who came from your fatherland and created the country you live in? It cannot be overstated how important it is to know your past, the history of generations before you, your roots… Regardless of were we live now – it is who we really are in our essence. And – how people say – you cannot get anywhere if you do not know were you’re coming from…
