When Bella was missing, Joan sent me this.
"When the heart grieves over what it has lost,
the spirit rejoices over what it has left."
I believe in that, and I think if we lose our state parks, the loss is so great, that our spirit won't be able to find what is left. We need our parks for education, renewal, preservation. These parks are earned. They must not be taken away, not one of them.
Last year, the work of Park Advocacy Day saved Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park. Here are two places to learn more.
May we have something to celebrate next year that was saved, the whole system perhaps.
