Politics and Nature
Speak Up to Protect the Land, Air, and Water
It is a little never racking the first time you do it. Call a representative or senator and let them know your opinion. But, the only way they will listen to our voices is if we use them and speak up.
I encourage all of you to speak up to protect the land, clean air, and clean water.
Today, we take land, clean air and clean water for granted. We can’t. We simply can’t rely on someone else to speak up, someone else to fight, someone else to take a stand. You must take a stand and make your voice heard.

Open a Word file and start copying and pasting the information. I’ve labeled my file Action. I have all the contact information in the file and now have it all on my phone.
These people are just people like you and me. They are our representatives. They are not appointed. They are not rulers. They are voted into office. They are responsible for being your representative, not your ruler.
Remember that – they are your representatives, not your rulers.
The only way they become your ruler is if you hand over that power by not speaking up, by not paying attention, and by not voting them out of office if they are not representing your will.
Early today it took me less than 2 minutes to make my voice heard regarding Ohio HB 554. That’s less time than it takes me to brew an espresso.
I encourage all of you to
Speak Up. Be Heard.
Millennials this applies to you as well. Our children are going to be the ones who have to deal with the aftermath of what happens now.
