To the editor:

I am 93 years old and a life-long resident of Danville and Pittsylvania County.

 I am deeply shocked and saddened that our beautiful countryside has been targeted for uranium mining.

Will we be coerced by corporate greed and the lust for short-term profit, creating the potential for environmental disaster?

Or will we choose to protect our land and water, our heritage and the well-being of future generations?

I implore all concerned citizens: Speak out, and say no.
