I dare you to read this and not be moved.

Searsport

Email from Nancy-Linn Nellis dated 02/23/13

As the hearings restart on Monday the 25th at 6 P.M. at Searsport High School – we continue to hear from Citizens around the bay – along with Seasonal residents.
I found this one to be heartwrenching  – I hope you will also.
Please keep them coming – as long as the hearings continue.   We, the people must speak up!
Also – Please – drive – take a cab – fly in – walk – get a horse drawn buggy – or sleigh  – rent a boat – snow shoe in  – whatever the weather will allow – fill the halls and the classrooms and speak up Monday night.

Hear me
Hear me
I was not granted interested party status
I do not attend meetings
I do not speak into microphones
Hear me though, just the same.
Now.
I am .
The gull who laughs at you while you enjoy your picnic
The fish you never see but you hope are always swimming
And the lobster you know so well
I am the loon and that soothing voice
I am the clean fresh breeze that fills your sails on Penobscot bay
I am the tree that shades your walk
I am the quiet that comforts you after a days work
I am your smiling neighbors
I am the slippery seal smiling at you
I am the quiet road home
I am your grandchild , not yet born.
Listen now,
I ask you to keep our place safe
This place safe
The place where we fly,
Laugh,
Grow
Walk
Swim
Sail
Breathe
When the child sits on you knee i hope you can tell them
the story of how you kept the the TANK away
To save this place for us
Instead of trying to describe for them
what it was like before the TANK came.

I am timeless
You always count on me to be here
As I have been for ever
I promise to stay
As long as there is a place for me.
