Why am I, a North Carolinian, walking 100 miles from Camp David to the White House? So that President Obama will say "No to Keystone XL!" for my grandchildren, who are not yet born, and for everyone's grandchildren.

Elders MarchWhy am I, a North Carolinian, walking 100 miles from Camp David to the White House? So that President Obama will say "No to Keystone XL!" for my grandchildren, who are not yet born, and for everyone's grandchildren.

It may seem a long shot to take a walk to stop Keystone XL. People like you and me have already submitted over one million public comments saying no to this dirty pipeline and over 60,000 of us have pledged to risk arrest to stop it. I stand with all of you who've spoken out. I am walking because I believe that everyone has to do what they can to fight the isolation and despair that comes from staring down a planet-killer like Keystone XL. I won't walk alone—I will be walking with my 14 year-old daughter Anna and with many others—parents, grandparents and children. Will you stand with my daughter and me as we walk 100 miles to stop Keystone? Sign your name here and I will carry your message to the White House with thousands of others as we show Obama that people of all ages are ready to spend their time, energy, even their very bodies in order to stop this pipeline—and all others like it.

Protest is a word that doesn’t even begin to capture the seriousness of my intent. As I walk I will leave behind the man who was a pliant accomplice to the destruction of our planet. I hope to inspire others to do likewise. And I hope that after 100 miles, when we arrive in DC on July 27th, President Obama will hear our call and leave behind his own preconceptions by saying "No" to Keystone XL. But he will be much more likely to do that if we have tens of thousands of people behind us. Can you add your name in support of our intergenerational, nonviolent march? I promise to keep you posted of all the change we make along the way.

In Peace

Environmental Action Member and 2013 Walk for our Grandchildren participant

Alone we can do almost nothing.

Together we can save our planet for our children and our grandchildren.

signed and made donation from my email - An excellent way (I hope) to gain positive attention for a critically important cause. Some how we must make our voices heard and stop this and future pipelines.
