The gifts of nature and a thank you note
There is a marsh one mile away from where we live.
It is an area of breathtaking beauty where we go for walks along trails by the forests.
It is a place where we can rest our eyes and recharge our energy. We exercise and reflect; we watch the birds that inhabit these peaceful landscapes.
We can all celebrate these gifts of nature. It is nobody's privilege to do so there.
Today I want to say thank you to the group of conscientious people who stood up against those who thought that building a highway was more important than preserving these gifts of nature.
