I heard this story from the radio station that we follow in our household. Written by Raymond K. Paden and was released in 2005. The title is " SUNRISE AT COFFIN ROCK". A good read and most of us came from the same mentality. And later on finding out that everything we have heard before are all true.
This is a very sad story, because he lost a family member when he believed the so called authorities. At least in the end he woke up and realize the truth about our government. I can't actually post it here because of the copywrite. Just type in the title and the search will take you there.
