Your Work is Appreciated

Dear Coal River Mountain Watch and Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition folks,

Thank you for your continued wonderful work fighting Mountain Top Removal and the horrible sludge ponds that it  creates.  Congratulations on your two recent court victories.  I know it is a long, hard fight, often gone unappreciated.  What you are doing is needed, admirable, and a good example of responsible citizen action.  Perhaps there are many hours you spend away from family, friends, and leisure, dedicated to the protection of the environment.  This is a big sacrifice.   I just wanted to thank you for your leadership, your help and your efforts.

Thank you for all you do.  I know it can feel like you are at war.  From another perspective, you are doing what is right: you are educating the ignorant, and protecting what is vulnerable and treasured.  Getting folks to see the light is sometimes difficult, but always worthwhile.  Thanks for hanging in there.  

Barbara Weaner, Tucker County
