    the Lummi's, they are all good but the ones by the children are priceless.
     Here's a link to them all (thanks to Paul Anderson who posted this link on my Facebook wall)

    Read thru them all, but I'll post the following link to the children's comments and lot of them are photocopies of their handwritten letters , so they are wonderful to see. (This is not them all it's just where they begin at part 6)

    If I could copy from the pdf I would paste the one from the 9 year old, Seth Wellington, talking about how he liked clean air, how he has asthma (and needs an inhaler), about his mother saying he stopped breathing once and hear his fear of not being able to breathe. He talks about his concerns for some of his friends who have breathing problems and worries about coal dust making them sick and asks "please keep kids and animals healthy by not bringing the coal terminal to Cherry Point."
    Touching , especially seeing it in the handwriting of a child.
