Letter about HeartlandRecently, I saw the American flag, waving upon many graves. I wondered, Who were all these people? How did they die? Were they alone? Were they on foreign soil? Did they die knowing that their hardship made a difference? Were they afraid? I was humbled by their efforts, proud to be an American and grateful to have been given so many privileges and blessings.As Americans, we have all been given privileges. With privilege comes blessings.....and with blessings come responsibility and yes, ..... sometimes hardship. Responsibility....its a frightful reality....until we realize that responsibility is also an opportunity. Its an opportunity to make wise, educated choices, to take constructive action and to realize the gifts that we have been given. Our Military today serves and our veterans served so that we are allowed freedom of choice and action.A tire-burning facility (Heartland Energy & Recycling) is proposing to open in Preston, Minnesota. The MPCA (Minnesota Pollution Control Agency) has already given the facility permission to: burn 357 TONS PER DAY of old tires to dump 44,000 GALLONS PER DAY of wastewater and to have a water detention structure, on-site.....a mosquito haven.I urge the citizens of Southeastern Minnesota (and people who visit the area) to exercise your freedom of choice and take action against this assault on our health and environment, by contacting the following representatives.
