Today I stayed at home to clean out closets. You know what I accomphished?
Sometimes when you have so much to do, it overwhelmes you and you end up doing nothing. Well, that was me today.
I did do a google search of other Eminent Domain stories. I read newspaper stories that all sound the same. I want to talk to the people who have been through this. I might find a name, but, then I cannot locate a phone number.
I was over twenty pages into my search when I came across a story from a year or so ago that was a follow up from ten years ago.
I had a name and I found the phone number.
I called and she answered.
She is from Ohio and lost her home to a Stadium project over ten years ago.
I briefed her on our situation. Gave her my name, phone number and blog information.
I didn’t want to talk too long, I don’t know the specifics of her story and I do not want to impead on her life. She did tell me it was the worst thing she ever has gone through.
We agreed on that. We agreed that this sucks.
I told her I was trying to connect with people who have gone through this process. I hope she calls me back. I understand if she doesn’t. I am learning that a lot of people do not want to talk about this.
With that said, I do want to talk about it. I want these stories to be told and heard.
Things still need to change.
