Linda I., TN

Imagine a fish trying to breathe in the mud. I have NEVER had allergies or respiratory sensitivities until I moved to Knoxville, which has a problem with dirty air. I now have headaches, dizziness, stinging eyes and shortness of breath on certain days.

Now imagine a crystal clear lake near a crisp mountain in a setting full of fresh CLEAN air. Which would you prefer? Gasping for breath like that fish in the mud or breathing in deeply cleansing fresh, clean air? The choice answer requires we ALL do our part to fight for clean air.
