In February this year, I wrote about standing up for the Salish Sea with the Friends of the San Juans at the Washington State capitol. There’s still much standing up—and protecting—to do, and I’m grateful to the opponents of the Kinder Morgan pipeline who recently marched for four days in the Walk 4 the Salish Sea in British Columbia.

I couldn’t join these protesters in person, but my heart was with them. Now I’m catching up on news of this latest effort to stop the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

This is just one more issue needing our attention. If it calls to you, please add your voice.

 

*Afterthoughts are my blog version of a practice followed in some Quaker meetings. After meeting for worship ends, people continue in silence for a few more minutes during which they’re invited to share thoughts or reflect on the morning’s worship. I’ve adopted the form here for last-day-of-the-month brief reflections on headlines, quotes, books, previous posts, maybe even bumper stickers.
