Tom was going through his dad's old paperwork box that no one actually read; the box had “confidential no one needs to know; unless that day has arrived, we all know what to expect and if you need clues open this box” written on the side. Tom thought "well that day has arrived," so he had to open it to find clues. The box was full of notes, letters, gifts, and many more things that he never knew his dad was up to; it was like a secret thing that his dad did and nobody knew. Tom picked up one envelope that had started to be opened but the opener never finished. Tom hesitated for a moment before he did anything, he then opened it and began reading it.
My late great grandfather had once told me that “Upon suffering beyond suffering:
The Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world; a world filled with broken promises, selfishness, and separations; a world longing for light again.
I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again.
In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom.
I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one.
Crazy Horse, Oglala Lakota Sioux (circa 1840-1877)”
This has been passed down for generations and generations. We have always believed that no matter what happens we seek forgiveness and the wisdom that we need. However, I must warn you there will be trouble lying ahead of us in the future; we may have lost him now but he will return, more powerful than he was before.
I need to inform you that in four years time, 3rd April 1996, there will be another killing in your family, I don't know who it is but as I looked into the fire the other night I foresaw this death. No one else had seen it other than the one I’m going to send to you, as he saw the worried look on my face as I saw something in the fire. I can’t reveal his name but I’m calling him The Observer for now. I will send him to you straight away so he can get some sort of training; I think that might be best for him, as I am taking up your offer to help give you guidance and protection. I know this Observer very well; I trust him with my life, he is ready to serve the Kennedy family and your department. He has accepted the challenge.
The reading of the letter was at the current address of Mary and Eric Borthwright; the eldest boy is safe at school and I don't think anyone would dare go and touch him. However, I could be wrong, you never know these days what a dangerous man can do. Yet the triplets who were born on 4th April 1996 were there in the nursery room in the same crib for protection. However, with Mary’s love and bravery standing in front of them to protect them, she has ensured that they will grow up together.
I’ll probably see you very soon no doubt.
