Time for me to get back into the blogging world again!
The fight against a silica sand transfer facility coming to my community ended last Wednesday night.
(This fight has consumed my life for the last month and half!)
Many,many phone calls.
Long hours of research.
Hosting public discussions on the subject of silica sand.
Walking door to door getting petitions signed.
Sadly our local city council voted it in 6-0
It was very defeating to sit through a public hearing that lasted until 1:15 a.m.
with the City Council members seated with their backs to the general public.
Most citizens were strongly opposed!
Only 2 council members even bothered to ask any questions.
One battle lost, but not the war!
I have gained a lot of in site through the battle.
Met a lot of wonderful people who care about our environment and want to protect it.
And hopefully educated a lot of people on the dangers of silica sand to our health.
Lots and lots of petitions were signed.
Much media coverage.
Even made the front page!
I just want to remind everyone who thinks they can't make a difference on something you are passionate about,
YES YOU CAN!
