If there is one issue that will clinch how you vote, please make it be the very health of us, our children and the planet.
What is a “cancer cluster”? …a “cancer alley”? Why have rates of childhood leukemia been rising, and also cancers in younger and younger adults? What explains the increase in neurological and other chronic conditions?
Voters and politicians talk of the high cost of health care, but they do not ask, “Why are so many people sick?”
I know women who have chosen to limit their family or even remain childless, based on their concern about the suffering in this overpopulated world. They sense a bleak future for their children and grandchildren.
What a painfully sad choice.
It is not my place to condemn them.
If we could focus on clean, renewable energy, like solar and wind, there could be a more peaceful world.
I am voting for those who understand these critical issues and want to act now to protect and clean up the air, the lakes and rivers and oceans and the very food we eat.
It’s time to tend this beautiful garden.
