My Son Believed that ‘Knowledge Is Power’. Today, He Would Proudly Support Our Efforts
Dear Fellow 9/11 Truth Advocates,
Last night, we reached the fundraising goal for the FBI 9/11 Review Commission Lawsuit, of which I am proud to be a plaintiff along with AE911Truth, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, and Barbara Krukowski-Rastelli, who lost her son, William, on 9/11.
On behalf of both organizations and Barbara, I would like to thank you for your generous donations to this most important lawsuit.
Growing up, my son Bobby had a poster on his wall that said “Knowledge Is Power.” He was an avid student who thought deeply about the social history of the U.S. and the world. His senior thesis, “Shadows Across the Snow: Blackness and the White Literary Mind,” dealt with the subtle and constant preoccupation with race in mainstream literature by white Americans. He had a tremendous ability to understand and empathize with others.
If Bobby were alive today, I know that he would proudly support the efforts of the 9/11 Truth Movement. That is because underlying everything we do for this cause is our belief that by expanding our knowledge — in particular, our knowledge of what happened on 9/11 and our knowledge of why it happened — we have the power to make the world a much better place.
Not everybody believes in the power of everyday people to change the world. But you do. I thank you for having that belief and for being part of this endeavor to uncover more about what actually took place on 9/11.
Father of Bobby McIlvaine
