Why I am a Champion for this Cause
The land and water here is sacred. The Iroquois say the Finger Lakes region is where God laid his handprint upon the Earth after creating it. Unfortunately not everyone thinks this way, least of all corporations. Crestwood Midstream, a Texas-based corporation intends to greatly expand gas storage in unstable, abandoned salt caverns close to Seneca Lake, putting the drinking water for 100,000 people and the livelihoods of farmers, vintners and those in the tourism industry at risk. I was arrested and continue to peacefully protest the gas storage project as part of the We Are Seneca Lake campaign, but I want to do more. I am helping to organize A Prayer for the Finger Lakes and am preparing myself to complete the 108 sun salutations on the summer solstice as a sacred ritual and to visualize a peaceful, cared-for earth. I am also looking forward to being in Taughannock park on the summer solstice with many regional yoga practitioners and other supporters. Help us visualize a clear day! Please donate to our campaign and most of all, please join us.
