I’ve known Carol Rosin since 1992, when I attended the first Women of Vision Conference in Washington, D.C., where she got up on the podium and proceeded to make our jaws drop, so remarkable and dramatic has been her life. She had resisted being a presenter at that conference, and at the last minute agreed. Same with this conference, only signing on a few days beforehand.
Back in 1992, as soon as she got off the podium, as she tells it, “This woman came running up the aisle and accosted me, said I needed to tell my story for history, and that I was going to do it her magazine!”
Well, we did tell Carol’s story in my magazine, Crone Chronicles (www.bbimedia.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=19_118&zenid=d60537f9c18e1279d963872eb6692339), in just about every single quarterly issue until I closed the magazine in early 2001.
Many readers couldn’t understand why I keep publishing Carol Rosin. But to me, what she was telling us placed all our other concerns in a perspective that we needed to hear, even though we weren’t quite ready for it then.
Better known to the world, is Carol’s 2001 testimony at Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project (www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ALLUuvsVkM) in which she detailed her work as an aerospace executive mentored by rocket scientist Werner Von Braun and the promise he extracted from her on his deathbed to keep the military/industrial complex from weaponizing space.
Carol’s presentation at the UFO Congress was riveting, and inspired a rare standing ovation. She spoke without notes (they had magically disappeared from the table in back of the stage only moments before she went on), and brought down the house. Carol stood up there like an incarnation of Kali/Athena, channeling female passion in action, center stage. She serves as an incredible example for all women to encourage us to express our deepest concerns.
Here’s a wonderful character sketch of her, very accurate!
Just prior to the conference, Carol had gathered four men to write up the latest version of the Outer Space Treaty, one of them being astronaut Edgar Mitchell. (Since she spoke without notes, she forgot to mention who the others were, and time was moving so fast there I forgot to get their names from her myself.) She implored us to get a copy of The Outer Space Security and Development Treaty of 2011 (www.openminds.tv; two Facebooks pages: Cosmos Treaty, and Ban Space-Based Weapons; and a new blog, email@example.com) and email, fax, or mail it to nation state and indigenous leaders everywhere.
The document begins like this:
The Outer Space Security and Development Treaty of 2011 establishes a framework and procedures to assure that space will be a neutral realm from which all classes of weapons are banned and from which no hostile action shall be taken toward Earth or the surrounding Cosmos.
This Treaty invites Nation States to become Signatories to this Treaty and invites all parties, including Nation States, Indigenous Nations and Cosmic Cultures, to commit to plan and assist in the orderly development and implementation of a framework and procedures that will assure and verify that space is and will remain a neutral realm from which all classes of space-based weapons are banned in perpetuity.
What’s most remarkable about the Treaty is that it invites not only nation state leaders, to be “signatories,” but indigenous leaders and cosmic peoples (ETs) to be “parties” to it. To those who have not yet understood about the long-time presence of our cosmic visitors, this idea may sound like a joke.
It is no joke.
The other remarkable thing about the Treaty is that it is set up to have only nine nation-state signatories before it becomes law at the United Nations!
I suggested that we should send out the Treaty as a petition over the internet with the goal of 5 million signatures, or hell, how about 50 million or 500 million! The point is, as Carol said, this treaty will finally put a lid on the arms race, and then we can turn around and begin to de-weaponize earth as well.
After her speech, Carol, who has been in relative seclusion for a number of years, was mobbed, as I knew she would be. Especially by women, who see in her a standard-bearer. Though the two of us were together a number of times during the next four days, always we were interrupted by yet at least one more woman who needed to connect with her as an embodiment of our deepest concerns.
Let’s all of us find that same passion that fuels the universe in ourselves, and send it into the world. We need to shift the entire operational system of earth from money and greed and secrecy into love and sharing and transparency. And we can do it. It is time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
