Think how many lives may be saved by taking down that one building and what would be gained by saving it. Danville has done a great job maintaining its historical nature, so I don't think it would be detrimental to lose the old Advocate building.
Another reason that makes me ashamed to be a member of this community is the article on the front page of the Sunday paper regarding President Obama's talk with our school children.
If my children were still school age, I would bring them home so that they could hear the president of the United States of America tell them how important their education is, that they work hard and set goals for themselves. What a wonderful thing that the president still takes the time to remember our children, the future citizens of this great country.
I don't know if it is politics, ignorance, personal agendas, or some or all of the aforementioned that have led to these hurtful decisions.
The hospital doesn't need the heliport, people need it to have their lives saved.
The president doesn't have an agenda to pass on to our children other than to let them know how important they are and how important their education is to their future.
I want my community back. One that cares, that gives, that is progressive and is responsible.
