Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly: Stop plans to develop the Grand Canyon.
This isn't "MY" petition, it's YOURS!
Jan 15, 2013 — I still care DEEPLY about this issue, despite the fact that I've not been actively promoting this fight recently. Life happens to us all!
I was surprised and humbled to find that it had grown by over 10 times since I last checked on it! THANK YOU ALL!
There's only so much that a step-father of two / full time student with two businesses and a part time job in Central Ohio can do. But I want to be able to return to the Canyon and show it to my daughters for the first time in their lives as I saw it in 2010! Beautiful, pristine, and UN-marred!
This is why it has touched me so much to see so many of you still promoting this fight. This canyon is OURS, regardless of heritage or nationality, because a wonder such as this transcends borders and ownership. This canyon is a worldwide treasure, and is owned equally by those who live close to it as well as those who live so distantly that they may never behold it's beauty!
My entire family thanks you for continuing to fight! NEVER GIVE UP!
