Liberty Quarry story: Everyone is a heroEight years were devoted to stopping Liberty Quarry. Looking back, I am awed by what dedicated people....... people like you and I, can do when we rise to the challenge.
The Pechanga Tribe of Luiseno Mission Indians are my heroes. They saved the communities of Rainbow and Fallbrook and the city of Temecula. I’m forever grateful to them. There are many more heroes, thousands of heroes. Every person who put their life on hold to do whatever they were able, is a hero.
People who did the best they could to help; they are heroes. Some people came to every event, others came when they could. Some wrote letters, some made calls, some held signs, some walked neighborhoods, some financed us. Some did it all.
I believe we got the best of each person that they could give. They are all heroes. In the end, anyone who “got involved” should be proud. They made a difference. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.
If not for you, some of the good that needed to be done might still need doing. You have made a difference. If not for you, someone might not have been inspired to give of themselves.
Every person who cared made a difference.
Together, we made this happen, and we will never be the same for it.
