Speaking Up for the river

“If enough people had spoken for the river we might have saved it. If enough people had believed that our scarred country was worth defending, we might have dug in our heels and fought. Our attachments to the land were all private. We had no shared lore, no literature, no art to root us there, to give us courage, to help us stand our ground.” Scott Russell Sanders
