Today I found Hope in Hockinson & Beyond. First I was honored and blessed to meet Roger a very committed and compassionate person, not at all what I expected in a financial consultant. He had good ideas and suggestions. Roger is a person who walks his talk and that is the best anyone can do.
Next I was invited to attend a meeting in Hockinson on the BPA I-5 Corridor Reinforcement Project. I met an older couple, a widow with 3 children, her wonderful caring daughter, a man who does MRI's and knows they effect the heart greatly, people who work for the school district, firemen, Chennel 12 News, neighbors, friends.
We are all scrambling to learn so much in a very small time frame. How will EMF waves effect our families, children, animals, plants, ground and waterways? How tall are 500 kilovolt towers? Who will listen and care? We must publicly respond by November 23rd and we need YOU. Wherever you are across these great United States to lend us your voice. Write to your Senators, Congressmen, President, BPA. Don't let us become endangered species.
Help us keep power lines from destroying scenes like these from my yard.
Tonight gave me hope because we shared our stories and cared about each other .
And Yes this 600 year old fir snag has many stories yet to be told. Many residents. This tree was standing on this very ground when the Declaration of Independence was signed. When the Mayflower landed.
As my dear Virgil Wallace told me it was much bigger because it lived thru 2 major forest fires. But it is still here standing its ground.
THAT GIVES ME HOPE!
Grateful to everyone I met today.
