BLOG & Gravesite info
|Posted on January 4, 2015 at 2:55 PM|
This story began with a family going for a hike and finding a lonesome tombstone in the middle of the woods at an retired brickyard . The McBryde family took the time to clean up around the stone and soon found other metal grave markers . "How could someone just abandon these graves" the mother said and made a wreath and hug it on the nearest tree. Then the day came when they heard that Duke Energy and a co-company wants to dump 5-10 million TONS of toxic coal ash in this same brickyard . Right on top of these graves . Stacy got in contact with EnvironmentaLEE and told us the story of the gravesite and many went to work searching for clues . You can read the 2 blogs before this to see how our journey began . But now check out how far we have came in a very short time !
I am truly proud of this whole story of families working together . May our journey of knowledge continue to succeed ! Let our determination to save the gravesite and it's community from being a dumping ground . Spread like a wildfire and get stronger so the folks who Live here now and those who fought before us , Rest in Peace .
