As one who has been utterly vilified by those who could have helped me but elected not or did so reluctlanctly sure that I was "telling tales" needs to read the story below.
We really do not understand the mind at all and what and how Amnesia, drugs and trauma affect the processing of the mind. I get it. I really do.
My anger has become a balm, I get why men get guns and shoot up places of employment, I get why children go to schools with knives or guns so angry and afraid they just need to lash out. I get it. I really do.
I chose to use my anger to be a salve to be the security blanket rather than a force to reckon or fight with. I use it fuel my choices and direct it to those accountable. And if that fails I then maybe then can move on to heal. I definitely know moving on is a necessity if I am ever to heal.
This man wants to remain anonymous. In his case its redudant really. Maybe those who will help him will but then again they are not American and in America seeking blame, pointing fingers usually falls to the victim. Heard, been there, bought the t-shirt.
How Did Amnesiac Dubbed 'John Smith' End Up 1K Miles From Home
By Henry Austin
An amnesiac dubbed “John Smith” after he turned up in a snowdrift four months ago has finally been identified.
The "man did not possess any form of identification, and did not remember his name, origin, how he ended up in Norway or any other details of his life" when he was discovered in mid-December, Oslo Police said in a release.
While he could think clearly, spoke good English and understood four other languages, the mystery man told investigators he had no idea about what had happened. However, "John Smith" said he had been sexually assaulted and had "very bloody traces" on his wrists that suggested he may have been tied up with plastic strips, according to Agence France Presse.
Investigators turned to international police organization Interpol and more than a dozen nations to compare fingerprints and DNA with their databases but were unable to unravel the mystery. Repeated attempts to jog the man’s memory also failed. With his permission, police released a picture of "John Smith" on Tuesday. A day later, they received a message from counterparts in the Czech Republic -- about 1,000 miles away from Norway -- that a couple had recognized him and said he was their son. Oslo Police spokesman Sturla Henrkisbo told NBC News on Thursday that the force's violent and sexual crime unit was leading the investigation.
The man does not want his identity revealed, he added.
