CraZy DreAm I HaD
Anybody that knows how to interpret dreams, your comments are welcome.
A large convention type hall was used for a meeting of people with Down syndrome and their families. I haven't yet been to a CDSC convention or a Natainal convention so I am not sure what they are like, but I have a pretty good idea. I was alone with Penny, because in my dream Scott stayed home with Nathaniel. I had been having a great time getting to know other families and other children and some adults with Down syndrome too. This dream felt so real, like I really knew these people.
At some point, it was like there was a lock down. We were all trapped in this hotel that housed only the convention people. Armed guards could be seen through windows at pretty much every locked exit. Obama was visible through a large glass, sitting behind his presidential desk with body guards standing on either side of him. Suddenly, his voice came on a speaker and he announced that we were all to be terminated since our children's lives were not ended before they were born. I don't remember the exact words in the dream, only that the method of execution for us was that gas would be piped into our convention space.
I cried so much in this dream. We all protested and demanded to know why our children's lives were not valued. Additionally, many of us had family left at home and we insisted that this was good reason to let us all live. Obama was unwaivering in his intent.
Luckily, it was a huge space that we were confined to, so in my dream, the gassing took an infinitely long time to produce any effects. I noticed a police officer (dressed unlike the guards) in a window and I held up a sign and waved my arms to get her attention. I communicated to her that Obama was in this building with us and he intended to murder us all. This officer was able to confront Obama and call off the mass murder. But he gave me a terrible look and let me know that this was not over, especially with me.
SO, what the heck does this mean?
