I may be a nobody to TransCanada, but not to my family and my community

We Love Our Land

You don’t know me. I’m nobody important to most folks.

My husband and I moved to York, Nebraska 35 years ago to find a nice quiet place to raise a family. And we found a little piece of heaven here that we love dearly.

And now, TransCanada wants to steal away all that.

With all their money and their power, this Canadian company wants to bulldoze through our home to build their new pipeline, all in the name of profits.

Watch this video about my family’s fight to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline now:

WATCH: “Our Little Piece of Heaven”

I just can’t begin to tell you the emotional upheaval I’ve felt over this. It’s like everything that we’ve planned for our whole lives is being destroyed.

You hear a lot about how Keystone XL won’t create any permanent jobs, how it’ll pollute the environment, how it’ll raise the price of gas for folks.

But before all that devastation and sadness, there’s my family and me. We’re going to suffer first. Our homes, our land, our very way of life — they will all be torn up and hurt because of this pipeline. Hurt for no good reason.

I may be a nobody to TransCanada, but not to my family and my community. And I won’t stop fighting to save them. Let me show you why:

“Our Little Piece of Heaven”

Thanks for watching,
