Worcester, Massachusetts (PressExposure) June 16, 2007 -- We all want our homes to be a sanctuary from the world, or just a place where we are physically safe and secure. Often times we don't think about the safety in our homes, we just plain and simply take it for granted. Sometimes unless we are faced with the catastrophic loss of our housing, or other crisis that requires us to look more closely at the situation. We usually look at the presumptions that our homes are safe, until faced with information to the contrary.
There are many housing issues in this country, i.e. scarcity of available housing, someone not being able to move because there is no place to go, or affordable housing in the region has a mile long waiting list, even the medically necessary waiting lists are very long for those deemed to immediately get out of their moldy (or unsafe for other reasons) living environment they are in at the present time.
Where have the set priorities on healthy housing, as well as housing availability and affordability gone? How can we gain a more complete vision of our potential as a community?
We could all choose to direct our energies to a prosperous and healthy future for all citizens if we were more healthy to do so.
Do we have the potential for this by coming together in fighting our odds as we stand today with our illnesses caused from these toxins that have destroyed our health, our lives, and our families? Yes, I believe that we do.
I am sure we all have the desire with the existing national community of persons ill from these toxins to join in with all the advocates that have been fighting for these same reasons for years, our rights to breath, our rights to safe environments whether it be our homes, our workplace or our schools.
Here today, I welcome all of you joining as members of my new website: The Nation's Indoor Environment--Toxic Mold as another avenue to stand united, help one another with the support, understanding, and knowledge that we have all gained through our illnesses as mold victim's. For today will never be the end of our endeavors, it will be the continued efforts joining together as a whole community.
