Veronica: “Even a small chance of pipes breaking is too risky.”

Dear Assistant Secretary Darcy & The Army Corps of Engineers,

My name is Veronica, I am a 14 year old student at Solen High School. I live in Cannonball ND and I’m protesting the Dakota Access Pipe line.

What I would do if I didn’t have any water is probably die because most of us are made up of 72 percent of water. If we don’t have water, the animals would die. No animals means no food and no food,which leads to starvation and starvation leads to death and death means DEAD!

The pipeline would affect us because the waters would be toxic and then the animals would drink it. Like I said, no animals lead on to death and if the pipes do break, then we wouldn’t have any water. Also, If the workers came from jail or prison and they might still do what they did and I don’t want that to happen or for them to be in our/ my community. Even a small chance of pipes breaking is too risky.

Sincerely,

Veronica

Solen School Student
