Vanessa sent a message to Kelcy Warren – Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Energy Transfer Partners, L. P. Email Address that said:
Dear Mr. Warren:
Would you please tell me, and the rest of the United States of America what could possibly be more important than the water and sacred lands of the Native Peoples at Standing Rock?
Truly look into your heart. What needs, loyalties, stories will drive you in these next weeks? Will you extend your heart to the needs of those at Standing Rock?
How do you want to be remembered?
Please do the right thing, the compassionate thing, the Christ-like thing, and stop the violence.
I speak as a mother, a woman of tremendous faith, and as someone who believes in YOU to step forth and create this next moment with the greatest of foresight and compassion.
My heart is with you AND the people of Standing Rock.
Do you feel it?
