I was away in Toronto last week (3 nights) and although I had full relief from the turbines (all of my symptoms disappeared completedly), I was awakened by the planes flying overhead my airport hotel – The difference: when the plane flew over, it went away and I quickly fell back to sleep! This noise does not stop and keeps us all from sleeping…my oldest has been talking in his sleep “be quiet!” he shouts from his bed, and, he shouts to his brother to stop making so much noise, but I know it is not his brother – who is lying quietly, it is the wind turbines he hears…
1738-7ULA8Q is the number I have been given to know that my report to the MOE spills action centre has been received. It’s a number. We are a number. My family is one of many who are a number in the sacrificial game that Ontario is playing called “Let’s build as many as we can, as quick as we can, and hope for the least amount of resistance”….
It’s after 3am, I have to get up early for work, and I can not help but wonder while I get out of bed to blog and record the event, make a required reporting phone call, calm my little one, and lie awake unable to sleep – Are the turbine management and representatives who told us there would be no noise, no disturbance, and that “we would hardly know they were there” able to sleep? Or do they lie awake nights thinking about the people who are suffering from the turbines and deal with their conscience and struggle with right and wrong? Do they know even more about the issues than they let on and wrestle with their feelings about the effects of the vibrations on my children’s growing bodies and minds? Or, are they at home peacefully sleeping while counting their money in their dreams….
