    When she does something that she REALLY desires to do, which was right there in front of her face the whole time, she turns on the light. Everything is enlightened. The Light comes on. The Creative choice is the Right Choice.

    I was afraid that all of the heat from those old incandescent bulbs would cause the packing excelsior to burst into flame, killing our poor 'caged bird' locked in the basement... but, thankfully, the Magic Violin (TM) not only provides electricity without wires, but also lights candles without flame and shunts all the heat and smoke produced to another dimension... or something...

    ...seriously, though, another fantastic and beautiful video from Lindsey Sterling... and she composed this one, as well!! Is there no end to this woman's God-Given talents? Violinist extrordinere, dancer, singer, and now composer...

    Hola !! Quiero agradecerte por lo que haces y transmites a través de la música , es muy especial lo haces cuando tocas el violín , sonríes y danzas en una sola sinfonía ! Tu sabes conectar música , cuerpo y alma al tocar ese instrumento maravilloso que es el violín que para mi opinión la música que penetra hasta lo más profundo del ser humano es la dulce melodía de un violín bien ejecutado y tu lograste todo eso y al.ver tus vídeos lo vivo en carne propia lo que tu trasmites cundo tocas el violín sonriendo y danzando . lograste algo muy hermoso y maravilloso con ti carrera musical sin dudas que tu pasión por lo que haces esta a un nivel muy elevado que pocos llegan , cuando llego a mi casa y quiero paz y tranquilidad pongo tus vídeos y tu música es una buena docis que llega a mi alma es como si fuera un ángel tocando el violín . lo que haces con la música y tus vídeos danzando y sonriendo es como que si un ángel de Dios morara en ti en ese momento en que haces tu música y tus vídeos ! Mis más humildes felicitaciones por lo que lograste con tu carrera y transmites . que Dios te bendiga más de lo que te está bendiciendo . Saludos !!

    FACTUAL BACKGROUND
    10. Mr. Reeners is a civil activist who spends a significant proportion of his life advocating
    for social welfare causes.
    11. Mr. Reeners has thoroughly researched the issue of fluoridated public water supplies and,
    based on his research, has concluded that fluoridated water is a threat to public health.
    12. For the past several years, Mr. Reeners has attempted to convey information about the
    dangers of fluoridated water to the City of Gallatin and the Gallatin Police Department,
    and has made numerous open records requests regarding the fluoridation of public water.
    13. On June 12, 2014, Gallatin Police Lieutenant Ricky Troup contacted the Mobile Crisis
    Hotline and asked that a mental assessment be conducted on Mr. Reeners because of his
    anti-fluoride activities.
    14. On information and belief, Gallatin Police Chief Donald Bandy knew and approved of Lt.
    Troup’s call to Mobile Crisis.
    15. At approximately 3:00 P.M. that same day, Lieutenant Troup, Lieutenant Ballard,
    Corporal Helson, and Officer Jones of the Gallatin PD went with Ms. Emily Cecil, a case
    worker with Volunteer Behavioral Health Services (“VBHS”), to Mr. Reeners’ residence
    and confronted him there.
    16. On information and belief, Gallatin Police Chief Donald Bandy knew and approved of
    his lieutenants and officers going to Mr. Reeners’s home with Ms. Cecil.
    Case 3:15-cv-00625 Document 167-1 Filed 11/17/16 Page 2 of 10 PageID #: 1974
    3
    17. Mr. Reeners did not threaten or harm anyone prior to this intervention, nor did the police
    have any reason to believe that Mr. Reeners was about to threaten or harm anyone.
    18. Instead, the sole purpose of the intervention was to attempt to get Mr. Reeners to accept
    mental health treatment and give up the fluoride issue.
    19. Lieutenant Troup, Lieutenant Ballard, Corporal Helson, and Officer Jones stood by in
    Mr. Reeners’s yard while Ms. Cecil interviewed him on the porch for the next two hours.
    20. Mr. Reeners remained calm and lucid throughout the encounter.
    21. Mr. Reeners did not make any threats to harm himself or others during this conversation.
    22. Mr. Reeners did not act out violently during the interview, or otherwise give any
    indication that he was an imminent danger to the physical safety of himself or others.
    23. Mr. Reeners spoke with Ms. Cecil for about an hour.
    24. Ms. Cecil attempted to convince Mr. Reeners to agree to attend mental health counseling.
    25. Mr. Reeners did not agree to attend mental health counseling, but did agree to drop the
    fluoride issue with regard to the City of Gallatin.
    26. Mr. Reeners then spoke with the officers for about half an hour, discussing other ways
    that he could help the community instead of pursuing the fluoride issue.
    27. Mr. Reeners remained calm and lucid throughout this discussion with the officers.
    28. The officers then informed Mr. Reeners that they were taking him to the emergency room
    for a mental evaluation, and that he had no choice but to comply.
    29. Mr. Reeners cooperated with the officers and submitted to the arrest.
    30. Officer Jones physically put the handcuffs on Mr. Reeners.
    31. Mr. Reeners told Officer Jones that his wrist was sore, and asked that his hands be cuffed
    in front of him.

    The violin music alone is incredible. The dancing is always so lively and Lindsey Stirling has this fresh happy look all the while, as if this is her natural state, twirling about beautifully with a violin, playing the sweetest of music... all of it together is a nearly overwhelming experience like nothing else I've seen. Thank you, Lindsey Stirling and crew, for your art, music, passion, and inspiration!

    kylemothershead Jun 23 (5 days ago) to me Bates emailed me asking me to tell you that when you are dealing with the Gallatin police, please be careful to respect the boundary between your 1st amendment rights and criminal disorderly conduct/etc.  He says that they will arrest you if you go over the line.  So – I am just passing that along.
