The majestic hills surround our communities; rugged and rocky, rising higher and higher. They stretch as far as the eye can see, in all their glory. They have become more precious as the threat of a quarry looms.
Do you stop, ever, to notice the beauty? Think about Rainbow, Fallbrook, with the rural lifestyle; grove after grove of trees, fields of flowers, plants, creeks winding their way to the rivers. Temecula, Murrieta; majestic rolling hills of the wine country; the history and charm of Old Town; De Luz, with sprawling, peaceful homes nestled in the valley beneath the western hills… stretching back toward Fallbrook.
We are all connected. No invisible county line divides us. We have the same “foe.” It is unacceptable for this be destroyed. What is Granite [Construction] thinking?
Gandhi says perfectly, “There is sufficiency for man’s need, but, not for man’s greed.”
We simply cannot allow our community to become a toxic, unhealthy industrial area. Drive north to Corona, surrounded by quarries; imagine that here. It could happen.
Don’t let it! We can’t afford to be complacent. You can make a difference. Learn the truth about what is taking place here in our communities. Aren’t we all entitled to an environment free of harm?
