Truth about towers
I read with interest the misguided letters against cell towers. I submit that there have been some studies on the risks, and here is an link to an article published by the American Cancer Society: http://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancercauses/othercarcinogens/athome/cellul....
If this is not enough to satisfy your concerns, then I suggest you turn off your cell phone, microwave, TV, radio and all other forms of non-ionizing radiation.
Towers are placed to provide good coverage … they have to be near residential areas, otherwise you would be complaining about dropped calls and lack of coverage.
I know, you want the cellphone, but not the tower. Well, it doesn’t work that way. Of course, the conspiracy theorists will never be convinced — all while they send their text messages and phone calls to like-minded individuals, over the same cell tower network they despise.
Now, let me get this straight: We have to be assaulted, almost daily, by hateful, misguided commentary about our president, on a busy street, in front of a children’s playground (at Lincoln Park) and yet we must pull up native taro, planted in the ground … twice — one time during the Merrie Monarch Festival for the world to see! Tell us, why is this so?
What’s wrong with this picture??
It is with much warmth that I am writing this letter, having been born here and spent most of my life on the island.
I was recently driving home and was pulled over for speeding in one of our well-known speed trap roads, where honestly we all know the limits don’t make sense. I wasn’t offended by that fact; I was at fault. … What bothered me is the spirit our police force portrays. They have no compassion left. Instantly, I was hounded as if I was drinking. I’d been working late, and just wanted to get home. I was treated like a criminal, with the sobriety test being administered with extreme prejudice.
I ended up being lectured, talked down too and treated like I was worthless.
Wait! I pay taxes. I contribute. I give wholeheartedly.
I’ve begun to notice this has become more common in more areas of life. Why do we allow our system to be so dead, compassion-less and without course? Is this the fear we want to place in our citizens … ?
What a sad day this has become, and it all starts with the person. I just ask us all to stop and think about others. Aren’t we all ohana? Where has all the love gone?
