I left the Gulf Coast area to visit my family in Colorado. It has been way too long since the last time that I was here. I feel that my life has come full circle when I have the chance to hold my beautiful granddaughters in my arms! Being with them and my family make me feel complete and they inspire me to make sure that the world is a better place for all of us! I know that I want my granddaughters to have the basic human rights of clean air and water!
I know that the work that I have been doing to in the Gulf Coast is so very important and I am truly saddened by the fact that the folks that were killed on the Deepwater Horizon and/or the folks that have gotten sick will or may not have this same opportunity with their own children, parents, wives, husbands, and grandchildren!!!
Please think about taking a stand for what should be simple, basic human rights…CLEAN AIR AND WATER!!
