Two Years Ago

Good Morning Neighbor:

Happy Memorial Day!!  I especially want to send Peace and Blessings to all the men and women serving in our armed forces and their families who serve emotionally here at home.  I know this email goes to my good friend Robert Black who is serving in Iraq and I also know that this email goes to many families in our community who have loved ones serving as well.  I personally know on a very deep level the freedoms our country stands for - if it were not for the freedom of speech I would be in jail or put to death this very day.  I am including an article below on the problems that China is having regarding breathing in toxic fumes and it cites an activist who is now in jail for calling attention to the matter.  So even though our government can be very inadequate with regard to the environment at least we have the right to say so and we have those who are willing to literally lay down their lives for that right to thank!!

It was two years ago this weekend that many in our community began smelling that "Onion Smell" and now we could not be more thankful for the smell.  Had it not been for it we would have never known we were being poisoned!!  Not too many communities have a trigger to know that they are being physically compromised in some way.  We are so blessed to have been able to the shut the operations down at this plant and secure the safety of our community - there are so, so many communities who are still fighting the fight for their physical safety.  However, our fight is far from over.  Our fight still remains in the political arena - it is called "The Fight for Citizen Rights".  I am posting an article below that educates us on exactly how our rights to have our voice be equal to that of government entities is just not there and we are not being protected to the extent that we should be.  It is this balance that must be restored in order for our country to remain a true democracy where all people have a say and a republic where the individual citizen is being guarded as well.  

We will no doubt as a community continue the fight not only for the betterment of our community but for the higher good of all!!

Your neighbor,
