Our health and quality of life are not for sale

Even a little pollution hurts children
The economic benefits of this forest.
Our efforts to preserve the Don Guanella forest have always been primarily motivated by our concern for our children and the children of the future. While our quality of life is a concern, too, we feel like we should leave the planet better than we found it. It's the responsibility of all of us to look after what Pope Francis called "our common home," so we simply cannot understand why the Archdiocese and our elected public officials – who were elected to represent us – have not taken positive steps towards saving this last large wooded area in eastern Delaware County. If we adults can’t persuade them, then perhaps a video featuring some of the children of Delaware County can change some minds.
