Endometrial Cancer

When it becomes personal...... to all of us. by Connie Shannon I read the news the other day our Military wants to 'purchase'  418, endometrial cancer000 acres of private ranch land surrounding Walsenburg, endometrial cancer Colorado so they can triple the size of their Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site, endometrial cancer a training area. You read it right - 418, endometrial cancer000 acres. Like others, endometrial cancer I have some questions as to exactly what they plan to be training for here in the states. The latest land grab by the US Military is being met, endometrial cancer thankfully, endometrial cancer with resistance by those who have lived and ranched in the area for generations. I haven't ever lived in Walsenburg, endometrial cancer although the news struck me on somewhat of a personal level. The town was founded by my great grandfather Fred Walsen. I never knew my great grandfather. We were decades a part in both years and generations. What I've learned out about him through the limited sources I've run across, endometrial cancer was he probably wasn't in the running for the Mr. Endometrial cancer Congeniality award. My great grandfather 'Fred' amassed quite a fortune off of the land of southeastern Colorado, endometrial cancer via its coal, endometrial cancer cattle, endometrial cancer and through his investments in the new railroads which were quickly sprawling across the plains of the heartland. If there were profits to be had and/or property to be confiscated, endometrial cancer and there was, endometrial cancer my grandfather and other primarily European males, endometrial cancer seized upon the opportunities before them.   Fast forward to the present - the land of southern Colorado is now the latest seizure of land attempted to be grabbed by our ever growing US  “Military Industrial Complex”.   President Eisenhower warned of such a complex in his last Presidential address to the nation.   Now we see our own military using its Washington DC money, endometrial cancer power and might against the folks of Southeastern Colorado. Back in the late 1800's, endometrial cancer my great grandfather Fred built a trading post with his partner, endometrial cancer settled in, endometrial cancer and had a town incorporated into his name in an area frankly, endometrial cancer which already had a name. La Plaza de los Leones was an established Spanish community before my Grandfather came along. One might wonder how such a change was met by those who had already settled there. Walsen and his partner brought supplies and things individuals desired, endometrial cancer provided some convenience and work 'opportunities', endometrial cancer and yet, endometrial cancer as such, endometrial cancer one could say he also received much in return. It could be argued more than his fair share. He and others capitalized (no pun intended) upon an opportunity and a land, endometrial cancer that by certain standards, endometrial cancer didn’t necessarily belong to him or to others. Which could invite the subject of property ownership in general, endometrial cancer but that's a whole other topic isnt it?  Or is it? Although my great grandfather is not here to defend his actions, endometrial cancer nor would he even want to, endometrial cancer I think its worth saying my great grandfather took what liberties he did, endometrial cancer because like others, endometrial cancer he could. Endometrial cancer  Isn’t that how it always happens? As I look at a pattern which over the long haul, endometrial cancer doesn't seem to benefit anyone but those in the single digit numbers, endometrial cancer I have a few questions that warrant asking. I think the questions are difficult.   They challenge a belief system most of us have grown up to accept without question or doubt. Endometrial cancer   Yet, endometrial cancer we are now facing a very similar situation that so many others before us have experienced. Situations we have ignored because we believed they didn't apply to us. Apparently they do. Now we have a government which is assuming and taking land and resources in whatever name necessary that allows them to confiscate the land at the expense of our livlihoods and rights as citizens. So perhaps its time to look at what has been overlooked for years - questions which should have been accurately addressed centuries ago.. such as. Endometrial cancer ...... When do we begin take a larger look at the ownership issue overall, endometrial cancer who it benefits and who it doesn't benefit, endometrial cancer and does it benefit anyone overall?   When might we look at the fundamental flaws in allowing the apprehension and accumulation of land and resources by a select few who, endometrial cancer in reality are not necessarily owners of that property any more than the residents who settled there before them? What right does the military, endometrial cancer or anyone else, endometrial cancer have to take land from citizens who have settled there and been there for generations? When do we learn how to share the land that is all of ours to share, endometrial cancer to respect and appreciate? As history repeats and the land grabs continue, endometrial cancer it would seem the chickens are now coming home to roost in our own backyard, endometrial cancer on many well meaning Americans who have wanted nothing more than a good life with their families and friends. What are we going to do about it?    Just as the many others who went before them, endometrial cancer it seems we have ignored the injustices happening to others, endometrial cancer thinking our way of life would not be affected.   We have historically disregarded and intentionally ignored others loss, endometrial cancer tragedy and suffering, endometrial cancer which so often includes loss of hearth and home, endometrial cancer because it hasn’t directly affected us.    When one group is betrayed and/or threatened, endometrial cancer every group stands to be jeopardized. Isn't it time to consider a reality that other people’s pain is ultimately our own to bear as well? The sooner we comprehend such a truth, endometrial cancer seems to me the better for us all. From there, endometrial cancer we could actually begin to create communities which better share both the resources as well as the responsibilities, endometrial cancer along with having communities which are governed more by everyone and not simply a select paid off few who relish power, endometrial cancer prestige and control more than doing the right thing and what is in the highest good for all.     We've been there, endometrial cancer done that - and as they say, endometrial cancer got the ripped t-shirt. xoxo Original source - Army site expansion angers ranchers -   http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21617003/page/2/
