From The Book
Think And Grow Rich,
Sometimes we get these thoughts that wedge their self
Into our brains and they stay’s there.
In 1980 I read a book about a man who was born in 1947,
In the communist country of Russia. As he was growing
Up he would always ask why, where do the birds come
From? Where does life come from? Why do we have to
Live like this? His father told him, you can live a better life
Through education. He would spend a lot of time in the
Local school library reading, when ever he found a teacher
That would help him understand the world better that
Teacher would disappear, and nobody could tell him why.
When ever it was time to harvest the crops everybody
Took part, the factory’s were shut down the military personnel
Took part. This takes place every year why are we so
Unorganized? We do this every year, How come nothing
Gets fixed around here?
He worked his way into a program where he could learn
How to fly plans, he became a Mig Pilot, and a Mig Pilot
Instructor, he had some great idea he shared with his
Higher up comrades, he got the message that if he kept
comeing up with these great ideas, you could find yourself
In a mental hospital. Nothing’s going to change here, it
Takes 3 hours to get grocery’s, all grocery stores stink
Because of all the food going bad, and you have to wait
In a long line, I don’t see any way I can make life better here.
He began to suspect that maybe the Americans are not
As bad as his government was making them out to be.
He made a decision to defect to the USA, if the living
Conditions and way of life are as bad as Russia, there is
No hope for me and there is no hope for man kind, and
I will kill myself!
He is successful in flying his Mig 25 to Japan, from there
He is able to make his way to the USA, he works with the
CIA, he works with the United States Air Force, he was
Willing to do what ever it takes to become an American.
It looks like everybody can afford an automobile around
here! You can get in an automobile and go anywhere
you want to in this country! The grocery stores don’t
stink, their is plenty of good food for everybody!
There is something right about this country!
